Our Indian Rosewood has this wonderful dark, chocolatey appearance, with some tones of deep red as well. A wood often used in bagpipes.
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.
Asheville's Antique Walnut Wood
The antique walnut wood for the center inlay and liner of this ring was hand picked from a collector in Asheville, North Carolina. It originated in an old tobacco barn constructed in the late 1800s. It's over 100 years old based on the date of the barn, and the tree likely another 100 as well.
When the settlers first came to the New World they forests untouched for centuries with a canopy of colossal trees as far as the eye could see. Much of that old growth is gone, which is sad, not only because we don't have the opportunity to see what our ancestors saw, but also because trees begin to exhibit different characteristics the older they get, and it shows in the wood. We feel fortunate to hold a piece of history, one that was alive and steady when the future of our nation was so uncertain.
Dual Rose Gold Inlays
The dual rose gold inlays add an extra touch of sophistication to this ring. A touch of Main street with a Rustic appeal.
