There are hundreds of different options available to you in terms of what material your ring should be made out of. Whether it is a gift, a wedding band, an engagement ring, or an anniversary ring, the substance your ring is made out of is very personal and has to work well with the person wearing it – after all, a ring is a sturdy piece of jewellery and will likely be with its owner for the rest of their life. When choosing a substance to have a ring made out of, consider rosewood for your band. Here are some reasons why rosewood is one of the best choices for a ring material.
Rosewood has a distinct rich red colour to its grain, making it a highly prized and sought-after material to craft with. The hues in rosewood, especially when treated and varnished by an expert, can make many people’s skin look rich and healthy, reflecting the natural, soft shades of red, yellow and brown present in human skin. The colour of red unique to rosewood makes an excellent ring and turns a regular piece of jewellery into a timeless one with the greatest of ease. At Northwood Rings, we use a few different types of rosewood. One type is known as Santos Rosewood, which is a deeper red with dark grains, and Indian Rosewood, which has a very dark (nearly black) purple tone.
Because of its close grained wood, the rosewood tree is used often for luxury items built to last, like furniture, decorative carvings, and prayer beads. People have even made luxury boats from rosewood due to the ingrained trust in its durability.
Meaning and History
Rosewood is believed to have beneficial and healing properties by multiple eastern cultures – specifically, rosewood jewellery is thought to heal an area or irritated skin over which it is worn. When it is cut, it emits a sweet smell, which is both soothing and calming. Wooden musical instruments like violins and cellos are often made out of rosewood for its unique properties in its density.
Having a ring of rosewood will set you apart from every other ring around. Whether you’re looking for style, durability, or simply a point of positivity in your life, a rosewood ring is always a great choice.
