Wood Ring - African Blackwood
Create memories with this beautiful wood ring, hand crafted from a unique piece of African Blackwood, perfectly fitted and joined with a wooden core made from reclaimed Teak wood.
We make our wood rings from two pieces of solid wood, Reclaimed Teak for the core and the preferred hardwood for the outer sleeve.
We then fit the Teak core, perfectly into the Hardwood sleeve. We make sure that the core and the sleeve's grains are at a 90 degree angle in relation to the other to eliminate the weaker short grain of the wood. You then have a laminated solid wood ring that is much stronger than a ring fashioned from a single piece of wood.
About African Blackwood:
African Blackwood is a member of the Dalbergia-genus rosewood species, but in our opinion the densest and most un-rosewood-like of the rosewoods. African Blackwood is a consistent favorite with acoustic guitar luthiers, wood turners, carvers and fine furniture craftsmen. It remains one of the world’s most coveted musical woods. African Blackwood often appears almost completely black, with its grains hardly discernible. (… thus the name) After sanding, a deep, rich, very dark chocolate color emerges.
Given its trees’ very small profile and the fact that they also commonly grow somewhat twisted (rather than straight up), finding long, straight boards of African Blackwood is a daunting task. It is so dark and dense, it’s almost inconceivable that it is a true Dalbergia-genus rosewood. Expect exceptional pieces to command a premium, as prices have increased — while supplies have drastically decreased — over the last several years.
At Earthrings, we value the uniqueness and exclusivity that our bespoke products offer to our customers. We handcraft every wood ring with great care and passion according to the specifications and requirements of the customer.
