The combination of soft materials, like wood and abalone shells, along with strong metals like tungsten carbide and Damascus steel, creates something as beautiful as it is strong. We want your ring to last a lifetime. 

METALS 

STERLING SILVER

Sterling silver is one of the top metals preferred for jewelry and is a great choice when shopping for rings. It is an incredibly durable material — it's even stronger than gold. Being strong and light-weight makes it an ideal choice for jewelry that will be worn daily or often.

TUNGSTEN CARBIDE 

Tungsten carbide is known for its robustness; it is stronger than steel and has the highest melting point of all the known elements. It is used in military applications, radiation shielding, and jewellry. Its toughness makes it difficult to work with, but it is worth it to create something durable that will be able to keep up with the trials of everyday life. 

DAMASCUS STEEL 

Damascus Steel is the popular name given to a layered metals technique that was used by ancient metal-smiths for armour, weaponry, and decorative items. It is a storied material and famous for its incredible strength and beauty. From the Vikings to the Japanese, blacksmiths around the world developed their own traditions for creating this work which exploited steel's unique ability to be forge welded at high temperatures, with a hammer and anvil. This technique allowed the use of different steels in different parts of a blade, so the cutting edge could be hard and sharp, while the body of the weapon could remain tough and flexible. Combining these different alloys for utilitarian purposes quickly led to the recognition of not only their superior function, but also of their great beauty. The name, Damascus Steel, comes from the Middle Eastern tradition, and is the most commonly used name for patterned welded steel.

AGED WHISKEY BARREL OAK

We source a lot of our wood from whiskey barrels, once used to age whiskey, they look stunning in jewellry. Whiskey barrels are usually made from American White Oak. These trees can live for over 450 years and reach an impressive size. The wood has a closed cellular structure, which is water-resistant and durable. Although they are called white oak, the wood is a rich golden colour with charred black lines. This is because barrels are fire-roasted, creating an incredible pattern that is sort after by artists as well as furniture and jewellry makers.

IRONWOOD 

Ironwood is a term used for high-density hardwoods. We find the toughest and most attractive pieces of wood that we can for our rings. 

OTHER NATURAL MATERIALS 

We love using beautiful woods for the inlays of our rings. However, sometimes we also want to offer a bit of colour. Here is a list of the other natural and environmentally friendly sourced materials we use. 

ABALONE SHELL 

Abalone shell comes from the exoskeleton of a sea creature similar to an oyster. South Africans have long harvested it for its beauty, as well as its protective and healing properties. Abalone naturally comes in a range of bright greens and blues and is spectacularly reflective in natural light due to the complex layers inside the material. 

NATURALLY SHED DEER ANTLER 

Male deer naturally shed their antlers every year. These twisting and impressive structures create a grey material that looks amazing against the colours of wood and other natural substances that we use for our rings. A material that was used to attract a mate and warn others to their power holds a special energy. Perfect for someone who wants to feel close to nature but also wants to wear something as powerful as it is beautiful.

TURQUOISE 

Turquoise has been treasured for thousands of years and was once more valuable than gold. It has been worn by the rich and powerful throughout history, including the accident Egypt and the Aztecs. This may be because of the rarity of blue in nature. It is said to have purification properties, dispelling negative energy, and protecting people from pollutants.
