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.
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!
Our sky blue turquoise is sourced from Arizona. We add in a bit of pyrite (fool's gold) because the two are often found together, and the little bits of gold give the turquoise a touch of sparkle.
Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina
As a small business owner and craftsman, 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.
