    The Story Behind the Ring

    Why Buy a 100% Recycled Gold Wedding Band?

    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 design any day.

    Each gold blank used here at Rustic & 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 which holds each business accountable for protecting the human rights of those involved in the jewelry supply chain.

    Guitar String Ring Inlay

    We love how good this acoustic, bronze guitar string looks paired with the titanium and weathered whiskey. If you'd like to supply your own string, we can likely make that happen. We prefer an A string, medium, ideally 0.036 gauge string but can likely make yours work.

    North American Bull Elk Antler Ring Inlay

    We only use naturally shed North American Bull Elk antler that has been harvested from the floors of our nation's forest. So, whether you are an avid hunter with deep respect for animals around you or an animal lover who cherishes the thought of carrying a piece of nature with you wherever you go, you can rest assured no animals were harmed to acquire this beautiful material.

    As with anything found in nature, our Bull Elk antler comes in a variety of colors based on the area where the antlers were found and the behavior of the Bull Elk. We are able to accommodate your preference between the brighter white elk inlay and the darker shade inlay that shows off the delicate veining in the antler. Please add your preference in your order notes and Carolina will ensure your crafter hand-picks the right piece of elk to complement your material choices.

     USS North Carolina Teak Wood Ring Inlay

    When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, they knew they had "awoken a sleeping giant," but they had no idea just how prepared this giant was for war. The USS North Carolina (BB-55) was built in 1940 and commissioned for service in April of 1941. She was the newest and fastest battleship that the US had ever created and would go on to lead every major naval offensive in WWII, earning 15 battle stars. Her wartime complement included 144 officers and 2,195 enlisted men of the finest generation America has ever known.

    After her decommissioning in June of 1947 and subsequent restoration project years later, the teak wood of her original decks was made available to the public in limited supply. We are very excited to offer a limited collection of rings that feature this story-filled wood.

    Note: All teak can vary in color from a brownish-orange to a deep brown.
