M1 Golden

This limited release is sure to win gold stars - the ‘Golden M1’ walnut wood is a unique, lighter variation than most M1 Garand walnut rifle stocks and we wanted to showcase it! The blonde hues of the wood really strike a pretty picture against the purple heart wood liner. Paired with a yellow gold center inlay, it is sure to turn heads.

The Story Behind the Ring

When Rustic & Main began, we had it on our heart to do something to support our Veterans. We knew we wanted to do a special ring for them, but it took awhile for the design to come to us. Mike, the founder, ended up having a chance (or fated) meeting with Donald McAlister from The Independence Fund, an organization doing some awesome things to help our wounded soldiers and their families. We knew this was the cause we wanted to get behind, and shortly afterwards, this special wooden wedding ring came to be. 

5% of Proceeds go to The Independence Fund

As a way of giving back to those who have given so much to us, we are giving 5% of proceeds from this ring purchase to The Independence Fund. It's a great way to show our support and honor those who have served so well.

Purple Heart Wood 

The Purple Heart medal is awarded to those brave soldiers who have been wounded or killed in combat, and traces its origins back to General George Washington and his Continental Army. It was, therefore, only fitting for us to include purple heart wood as the main theme and unique character of this ring. Purple heart wood is not dyed, but is naturally a deep, rich purple hue which intensifies over time.

M1 Garand Rifle Stock c. WWII

We decided to pair the purple heart interior of the wood ring with the walnut from WWII era M1 Garand rifle stock wood. The determination of our wounded vets is so inspiring. Regardless of the wounds sustained, so many of them want to get back to the fight and stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow soldiers. The M1 Garand served as the rifle for the Greatest Generation, and is more than a symbol of the fighting spirit that lives on.

Centered Inlay

The Purple Heart medal has a distinctive yellow gold border and we found that it pairs well with our ring as well, so we have featured a 14k yellow gold inlay in this ring. A simple but classy touch to tie the whole ring together.
