      The Story 

      Made from whiskey barrels once used by the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

      Launched on December 7th, 1942 -- exactly one year after the bombing of Pearl Harbor -- the famed USS New Jersey battleship would go on to serve in WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam, and kept watch during the Cold War era. After serving 21 years of active duty (49 years in total), she was finally decommissioned in 1991.

      She holds the distinction of being the most decorated battleship in US history!

      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.

      A SAILOR AND HIS WHISKEY

      For fun, and because it looks amazing, we have paired this heritage teak wood with another favorite of any sailor: whiskey! The whiskey barrel liner provides both an aesthetic contrast and adds to the story. Most of the whiskey barrel wood we use contains traces of the charred oak, part of the whiskey barrel making process, and adds distinct flecks of color to the oak. The optional copper band brings an extra dimension of detail to the ring and reminds us of the old brass works.

      Offset Metal Inlay 

      We added a touch of class to this ring by adding an offset metal inlay. We chose copper for this ring, but these rings look great with any metal you choose.

      Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina

      It's our 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. Each ring purchased represents a tangible piece of American history and keeps the stories of heroism and honor alive and well.
