A wedding ring is a big investment. It’s also a significant decision—You’ll be wearing it for years, and hopefully, decades. The contemporary rings made with wood or antlers are a unique, all-natural investment in your marriage and nature.
Wood and Antler Wedding Rings are Unique
Handcrafted wood and antler wedding rings are a step away from the norm. Traditional gold and silver are lovely, but there is nothing new about them. Brides and grooms have been using them for ages, and there’s not much more you can do to make them stand out.
Antlers are never identical. They have different patterns and shades from the areas the buck rubbed their antlers on trees and other objects. For example, when two bucks compete for a doe’s attention, they use their antlers and, in many cases, lock heads. These actions create incredible markings that no designer can replicate.
You can Custom Design a Wedding Ring
Customize your wood or antler ring with other materials to increase their value, appeal, and durability. You can choose to include sand pear wood, koa wood, or Chesnut to spice up the look. Each species adds to the allure of your ring.
Koa means bold, brak, fearless, or warrior in Hawaiian, and the flowering tree is legendary in Hawaii and is most common in Maui and Oahu. Sand pear is a small, flowering plant found in Florida that’s commonly used for making musical instruments. Chestnut isn’t as strong as oak, but it’s lightweight and easy to work with and naturally resistant to insects and fungus.
These materials combined create an undeniable distinct look that’s organic, durable, and striking. Plus, they don’t have to be just a blend of browns and grays. You can add other patterns and colors, such as a gorgeous turquoise that draws attention from across the room. Another option is a camo design. These are excellent for hunters because they include their love of and respect for nature.
Wood and Antler are All-Natural Materials
How often can you say your custom jewelry is a few steps away from nature? Wood and antler are natural. They’re crafted by hand without harsh chemicals, additives, or extensive manufacturing processes. When you choose these materials, you’re giving back to the environment. The eco-friendly design and creation method doesn’t waste precious resources and leaves a minimal environmental footprint.
Durable & Made to Last
Deer antlers are strong enough to withstand the fierce battles between two bucks with only some discoloration from the contact and maybe some scratches. They’re scratch-resistant and durable than many metals. Additionally, testing revealed that antlers are six times stronger than the human femur. Next to strength, these are also 100% waterproof. You don’t have to worry about taking it off for swimming, showering, or while doing the dishes.
However, the durability doesn’t take away from the comfort. Wood and antler wedding rings are comfortable so that you can wear them all day, every day without discomfort.
Mix With Tungsten for More Support
Antlers are strong and durable, but if you’re still concerned about the material’s strength under pressure, consider a mix of materials. Additional options include tungsten, which is one of the strongest metals found on earth. The polished metal looks great by itself but has some more personality when you mix it with a ring of antler or wood. Choose a design with the metal on the inside or outside of the ring. It’s a matter of preference. Both options are comfortable and look great.
An Affordable Alternative to Gold and Silver
Gold and silver wedding bands, some of which are encrusted with diamonds and gems, such as onyx, look great. But they’re often very expensive, easily costing more than $1,000. Wood and antler rings, sometimes mixed with tungsten or titanium, look great, are more than durable, and won’t put a large dent in your bank account.
Wood and antler wedding rings are an excellent investment. Each one is unique. You can custom design it to fit your personality, durable, and affordable. Buy a one-of-a-kind wood or wood and antler wedding ring from Alpine Rings.
