The Story Behind the Ring
Historic Teak Wood
The outside of this ring is made from the original teak decking of the USS New Jersey battleship. The same wood walked upon, fought upon, and stood upon by US sailors of many generations.
We wanted to honor the history of this grand vessel and the many men who served over the years by using a bloodwood liner. Though the USS New Jersey had relatively few casualties during her years of service, all who served gave their time and lives in the service of freedom. We also feel that these historic woods represent the effort of all our men and women who served to protect the liberties we hold dear.
Note: We make an alternate version of this ring with your favorite whiskey barrel as the lining as well. See that ring here.
Offset Metal Inlay (Pictured with Yellow Gold)
We added a touch of class to this ring by adding an offset metal inlay. We chose yellow gold for the rings you see pictured, but these rings look great with any metal you choose.
