Bent wood rings make charming gifts that are durable, super comfortable and never go unnoticed! Suitable for both men and women, wooden rings are popular choices for wedding, engagement or 5th anniversary gifts, as well as cool accessories for everyday wear!


---------- How Are Bent Wood Rings Made? ----------

Maple and Macassar Ebony make a beautiful combination, turning from scrap material into stunning wearable art using the bent wood ring making method.

Bent wood rings are made by wrapping thin strips of hard wood to build up strong layers that allow the grain of the wood to run around the circumference of the ring. The direction of the grain adds to the structural integrity, eliminating breaking points and making them extremely resistant to most of the demands that your day to day life will throw at them!

Each ring is meticulously turned and represents hours of intricate work. When the ring has been formed, shaped and sized an inlay channel is cut and created by hand before so the Lapiz can be set into it, creating the unique detail of the dark blue band.

A lengthy “CA finishing” process is then performed to achieve a durable and glassy look that will last for years if treated with the correct care!

A high level of skill and craftsmanship is poured into the creation of every ring to ensure you'll receive a piece of jewellery that you can love for years to come.


---------- Sizing ----------

All of these rings can be made to order in your size! UK sizes E-Z or US 3-16 are available.

These rings can be made between 4-10mm width.

Please ensure that you measure your finger correctly and specify your size upon purchase. It is highly recommended that you get your finger sized by 2-3 jewellers at different times of the day to ensure accuracy as a resizing fee may be applied if the wrong size is requested. 


---------- Caring for your wooden ring ----------

It is advisable to take the ring off before exposing to water for prolonged periods, especially if using soaps or detergents as these can wear down the finish. You should also be careful when lifting heavy goods or rigorous sporting activities as wood is a fragile material and needs to be treated with love and care! 


---------- Dispatch and Delivery ----------

Postage and packaging are free. Each ring will take 2-3 weeks to complete.

Delivery within UK is sent first class recorded and usually takes 1-3 working days to arrive.

Overseas delivery normally takes 5-10 working days but can be up to 5 weeks depending on where in the world you are. I advise allowing at least 8 weeks for your ring to arrive to avoid disappointment.

Care Instructions

I use a finish on my wood rings known as C.A Glue finish. CA glue is commonly known as super glue and when cured it is non toxic and very durable.


It has excellent resistance to water and I’ve worn my rings in swimming pools/the sea/showers with no problems.  I do however recommend removing before submerging yourself in water for long periods of time just in case.


The main thing really is to remove the ring before bar fights/heavy deadlifts/operating machine guns/free climbing up cliff faces.  Remove before any activity that will crack the finish (the same as you would for any piece of jewellery you love/to preserve your fingers lol).


Also keep the ring away from heavy cleaning products/acetone/nail varnish remover/white spirit as they will strip the finish.


Wood rings have a 1 year warranty for reasonable use but I’ve had customers wearing rings for 6+ years that still look new.  Just depends how you look after it.


I do offer stainless Damascus steel rings if you prefer something that can withstand any punishment you throw at them for the more adventurous spirits!

Returns and exchange details


Returns, refunds and exchanges are accepted under reasonable circumstances.

-Sizing -

I understand that sizing rings can be tricky and
sometimes the wrong size is ordered by mistake. To ensure accuracy it is advisable to visit more than one jeweller at different times of
the day, this will help you determine the right size and avoid having to exchange or resize your ring.


I am more than happy to send a free ring sizer for you when you place
the order so please feel free to request one.

All customers ordering rings with precious or other metals will receive a set of mock up rings in the exact size and width requested. These
are made out of wood and you are welcome to keep them but they will give you an idea of the best fit before I create the final piece.


Please allow plenty of time to receive the mock ups when placing your order.

Provided the ring is unworn & undamaged you can return/exchange once for free, all I ask is that shipping charges are covered.

Bent wood rings can generally be adjusted by 1/2 of a
US size (approx 1 UK size) but if it needs to be made any bigger or smaller then a new ring will be formed from scratch. Resized rings are subject to my usual build time of 2 weeks + delivery times.

If you order the wrong size simply send me a message within 30 days of receiving the ring/s and we can arrange your resizing.

-Refunds and Returns -

No corners are cut during the process of creating your custom order and I ensure the highest standards of craftsmanship are adhered to. If you are in any way unsatisfied with your item you may notify me within 14 days of receiving it in the post and arrange a refund.

A full refund for the price of the
item will be given minus a 30% restocking fee and any shipping
charges I have incurred. Please note that all shipping charges for
returns are the responsibility of the customer when items are
returned.

Returned items must be unworn and undamaged.

-Guarantees -

Every ring or item in my shop comes with the
following guarantees.

Sizing guarantee:

Each ring is measured on a mandrel and with a digital caliper to ensure I make the correct size as requested. If I make a mistake with sizing I will replace the ring for free and cover any shipping costs. To date this has never happened so please be sure to follow my advice on sizing to avoid
extra shipping charges.

Lost or Damaged Items:

If your item is lost or damaged in transit I will make another to specification and send it for free.

Discounted Replacements:

(if not a lifetime) however wood is a natural material and needs to be treated with care. If over time the ring becomes damaged you can order replacements at a discount of 25% off the current retail value + postage or contact me with details to arrange refinishing if required (prices will vary and shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer).
