A gold ring infused with heroism and history.

From the gold rush that flooded California with forty-niners, to the golden age of Hollywood, there isn't a place in the continental US we could associate more with this beautiful metal. 

Since we're Rustic & Main, we had to literally inlay some history into this golden band, so we chose a wide inlay of USS California Teak to pull together this ring design.

  • SCS certified 100% recycled gold ring base
  • Authentic teak wood ring inlay from the decks of the USS California
  • Handcrafted to order in the USA
  • Available in: 10K, 14K & 18K White, Yellow & Rose Gold
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • *Free size-from-home kit available

The Story Behind the Ring


 USS California Teak Wood Ring Inlay

Known for its sturdiness and water resistance, Teak wood was a mainstay in shipbuilding in the 18th and 19th centuries. The US Navy used this South East Asia grown wood on the decks of many of the battleships that they built, including the USS California.

The USS California was commissioned in 1921 and was awaiting inspection when the Japanese forces attacked Pearl Harbor. The seamen were not able to secure the ship after Japan torpedoed it which resulted in lost lives and the USS California sinking to the bottom of the Harbor.

The great American spirit would not be deterred and the USS California was resurrected from the depths of the harbor and sent into battle in WWII. Not only is this wood a symbol of our grit and love for life here in America, it is beautiful wood with tight straight grain accented by the rich brown and golden colored hues in it. These colors make it a perfect fit to pair with Solid Yellow Gold.

Solid Gold Men's Wedding Band: Responsibly Sourced Gold

Our 100% recycled gold wedding bands use a sustainable form of refined gold that is just as pure and valuable as standard gold but eliminates the negative environmental and social impacts caused by gold mining. This gold wedding band is the perfect way to symbolize your unique love and unity while passing on that love and care to our people, our planet, and future generations.

Whether you choose White Gold for its cool tones, Rose Gold for its rosy hue, or Yellow Gold for its classic look, your one of a kind gold ring will outshine the average big box jewelry store plain design any day.

Each gold blank used here at Rustic and Main is sourced from Stuller, a brand established in 1970. We are proud to work with a like minded business that believes in an Earth First Commitment and that every business should operate with social responsibility in mind. Stuller is certified through the Responsible Jewellery Council that holds each business accountable for protecting the human rights of those involved in the jewelry supply chain.

Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina

We are happy to play a 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 is a tangible piece of history and a reminder of the heroism and honor of our nation.
