This ring is one of our ( Bentwood Design ) and Stone Inlay rings. We constructed this ring using a very thin piece of Curly Maple wrapped with Spanish Cedar and then inlayed with Abalone Shell. This process showcases the wood grain at it's best and also makes an unbelievably strong ring. We crush our stones/shells ourselves before we inlay any of our rings. Woodenvisions will never use any type of synthetic stone/shells. Each ring is made using Exotic or domestic Hardwoods and is hand cut and finished with hand tools and then sanded in 8 different steps to ensure a smooth as glass feel to the touch. Our rings are then sealed and buffed with 10 coats of a hard glass like finish. Every ring that you see from woodenvisions will be in the Natural state of the woods being used. There is never any use of stain or color enhancers on any of our creations. Our rings are made to order and will take about 2 weeks to complete before being shipped. Our rings are available in sizes from 5 to 14, including 1/2 sizes. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to answer any of your questions. Thank you for allowing us to share our creations with you.
