Why Damascus Steel?
In short, Damascus Steel is made from two or more different grades of stainless steel. It feels lightweight and looks really cool as each ring is forged into its own unique pattern.

And now....The Inlays!!
What the heck is....?!?
In short, the one, the only, from the sky kind of thing. It's genuine and really really cool. Geek out with us.
Our meteorite rings are made from either Gibeon or Muonionalusta Meteorite, which was formed in space billions of years ago. The rarity, origin and pattern of each meteorite ring makes it a distinctive piece of art. Meteorite is primarily composed of iron so special care must be taken to prevent oxidation. See care instructions here.
Our dinosaur bone comes from bones too small or broken to be displayed in museums. It's available in three different colors - black, tan and red. No dinosaurs were harmed in the making of these rings - teehee...
Typically used as a coating on the outside of guns, Cerakote is a durable way to add a little color to your ring, either as an inlay or a hidden sleeve inside. Keep it away from chemicals (hand sanitizer, lysol, bleach, etc) to keep your color looking great. For custom rings, we have a wide selection of those colors to choose from.
Are Your Wood/Antler/Dino Bone Rings Waterproof?
Yes and No. Our "In Stock" wood rings are water-resistant but not waterproof. Our jeweler protects and seals the wood in with an epoxy but they are not meant to be worn in the shower and in the hot tub/pool/lake/ocean. They will not fall into pieces after one shower, but please don't make it a habit.**Obvious submerged water damage to your wood ring will void your one year warranty**
