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 bloodwood liner. Paired with a yellow gold center inlay, it is sure to turn heads.
- Historic light walnut from a WWII era M1 Garand
- Bloodwood liner
- A centered Yellow Gold inlay
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.

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!
Centered Yellow Gold
We found that yellow gold 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.
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.
