Purple Heart Wood Wedding Ring with M1 Garand WWII Rifle Stock and Gold

We created this ring as an ode to our heroes, many of whom have received the Purple Heart medal. Historic M1 Garand rifle stock walnut combined with rich Purpleheart makes an attractive pair. An offset metal inlay adds a touch of class and perfects the rustic look with Main street appeal.


  • Historic walnut from a WWII era M1 Garand
  • Reclaimed South American Purpleheart wood
  • An offset metal inlay (your choice, though we recommend Yellow Gold)

The Story Behind the Ring

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.

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.

M1 Garand Rifle Stock c. WWII

We decided to pair the purple heart interior of the wood ring with dark walnut from WWII era M1 Garand rifle stock wood. The determination of our wounded vets is so inspiring. Regardless of the wounds sustained, so many of them want to get back to the fight and stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow soldiers. The M1 Garand served as the rifle for the Greatest Generation, and is more than a symbol of the fighting spirit that lives on.

Offset Inlay

The Purple Heart medal has a distinctive yellow gold border and we found that pairs well with our ring as well. While yellow gold was used in the original design, you can select a metal option that matches your style and your story.
