gender neutral wedding ring

Your wedding band is a daily reminder of your love and commitment – a practically designed ring built to withstand all the bumps, scrapes, and stress of daily wear.  Your wedding band should be unique to your preferences, your style, and should reflect your aesthetic preferences regardless of trends or traditions set in place before you.

Rings are beautiful, unique and highly symbolic objects that speak volumes – a ring can have any representation or meaning that you prescribe it yourself.  This meaning is deeply personal and has nothing to do with what styles traditionally belong to which gender.

Here are some of our favourite wedding bands that would look excellent on whatever finger was wearing them.


INDIAN ROSEWOOD WITH 14K YELLOW GOLD LINER AND CORAL SAND INLAY

For a look that is charming, natural, and very unique, look no further than this ring.  With the textured, tactile nature of the inlaid coral sand, this ring is reminiscent of the strength, wildness, and beauty of the sea.  The smooth lining of yellow gold makes sure this handsome ring glides along your finger and stays put without straying.  Its gorgeous colour paired with the rich rosewood of the band makes for a ring as strong, beautiful, long lasting, and as unique as you are.

AMERICAN WALNUT WITH CLADDAGH


For hundreds of years, the Claddagh ring has represented love, loyalty, and friendship.  This ring takes a traditional ring symbol and brings it back to its roots, so to speak, by rendering it in strong, durable American walnut wood.  The design is carved into the side of the band with laser-cutting techniques that ensures the image will endure with you through thick and thin.  Have a new take on a classic jewellery design with this natural, enduring ring fit for anyone loyal, loving, and true.

 EBONY WITH INTERSECTING MALACHITE INLAYS


Dark and mysterious, this ring has two encircling lines along the band that intersect with each other, always fated to come back to one another eventually.  The deep green of the malachite against the singular and unique hue of the ebony make for stunning yet simplistic ring worthy of any person with a hint of mystery to them.  This ring also has the option of having a white gold or yellow gold lining placed on the inside of the band, as wells as multiple options for colours of stone to inlay around the band.  All these details add that extra secret punctuation to the strength and elegance of your ring.

NATURAL BIRD’S EYE BIRCH

Simple yet undeniably stylish, this understated ring shines out with a refined dignity.  It is expertly smoothed and lacquered by professional wood working jewellers in such a way that is comfortable while still maintaining the subliminal wildness of nature in the look of the ring.  This ring can achieve remarkable versatility through its simplicity by being able to coordinate and match with any skin tone, outfit, or any other ring it may be paired with.

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.
