Read about how we make our rings
USS New Jersey Teak
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!
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.
Natural Maple Wood Liner
Our historic maple comes from Asheville, North Carolina. The board was taken from a barn built in the late 1800's and was likely used to store tobacco, as was so common in the area.
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 White Gold Inlays
We added a touch of class to this ring by adding a dual white gold inlay.
Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina
As a former sailor, I am proud to craft each ring by hand here in the state to which the BB-55 owes its name. 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.
