Being a Bourbon, Scotch and overall whiskey fan, as soon as I saw the Alder I knew that was the wedding band I *needed* to replace my boring tungsten ring.
What really made me realize I made the right decision was a support discussion. As this ring contains wood from actual Jack Daniels casks/barrel staves, I was concerned about water from washing dishes, showering, etc. The care guide inferred that normal showering and washing dishes, etc should be OK but I wanted to know if I could use a good Beeswax to condition the wood on my new ring. I decided to reach-out to Manly Bands Customer Support.
Within an hour, I received a response that she would forward my question to the "Made to Order" team. The next day, the Made to Order team responded that they were reaching out to the actual crafters of the ring and would get back to me as soon as they got an answer.
Within an hour of that email, sure enough - the ring crafters agreed with my choice of Beeswax as a means of conditioning and protecting the wood on my ring!
Thanks so much for a great "Manly Band" and great customer experience overall!
