M1 Garand Rifle Stock c. WWII
The preferred US rifle of WWII. We crafted this ring out of an authentic WWII era M1 Garand Rifle Stock. 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.
So called because of its deep red tones, bloodwood has a truly life-giving story. In the ancient jungles of South America, where this tree is found, the sap is fed to infants as a replacement for mother's milk.
We love the dark red of this wood, but we also love the story behind it!
WWI Wool U.S. Army Soldier's Field Shirt
Classic America! We put so much thought and quality into the products created in the early 20th century. A soldier's uniform was made of wool, all made in the U.S., for the fabric's superior ability to keep a soldier warm, even when wet. The wool infantryman's field shirt used in this ring was worn by a soldier in WWI. The olive drab green not only creates a wonderful contrast to the ring, but has a unique texture you won't find in any other ring.
Dual Brass Inlays
The brass inlays tie the elements together and add a touch of class. A touch of Main street with the Rustic appeal.
This is a true American Joe's ring, perfect for the history buff and sentimentalist.
Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina
I am proud to craft each ring by hand in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is my honor to play a small role in the new "Made in USA" movement that is taking place across the nation and to do so by sharing part in our American heritage.
