Because wooden rings need to be worn with care and following our care guidelines, this warranty does not cover chips, dents, breakage, cracks or faster wear of the acrylic finish than what is considered average.

None of the woods we use are listed in the CITES appendices as being threatened or endangered. Macassar Ebony is listed on the IUCN Red List as being vulnerable due to a decline in it’s natural range. 

We source most of our woods from craftspeople and artisans with pieces too small for their own use. In this way we feel we can create beautiful rings without contributing to their decline.
