Description

White (Bur) Oak, grown in Manitoba and collected from dead-fall on the banks of the Assiniboine River . No new trees have been cut down for my purposes.

Wooden rings are made to order, please allow an extra 2-3 weeks on top of normal delivery times. Please specify ring size and finish type in notes upon ordering. Each ring is unique and may not appear as pictured.

 

Finish types

Natural: Conditioned with mineral oil for a natural finish, and coated beeswax for added moisture protection. Your ring should be re-coated with beeswax as needed to maintain extra moisture protection.

Semigloss: Coated with cyanoacrylate for low maintenance durability.

 

Care of Wooden Rings

  • The more you wear it, the longer it will last. An unused ring will dry and disintegrate over time, a properly cared for and worn ring will last decades.
  • Avoid excess submergence in water (remove your ring before washing dishes, bathing). The odd hand wash is okay as long as no moisture remains between the ring and your finger. One exception to this is antibacterial hand soaps, which should be avoided.
  • Avoid chlorine or salt water.
  • Avoid abrasive materials such as wearing while using cleaning supplies, lotions, hand sanitizers, etc.
  • While wood rings are durable, they are not as durable as metal. If you’ll be using tools or engaging in an activity where it could be smashed, remove the ring.
  • If you’ve chosen the natural finish, a light coating of mineral oil should be applied every so often. A coating of beeswax should be applied for extra protection.
