Cobalt and Tungsten Wood Rings: The Unique Eco-Friendly Wedding Band
Even though saving the planet doesn’t need an added incentive, it never hurts when environmentally-friendly products provide an added benefit over their predecessors. Like energy-saving light bulbs that last longer and hybrid cars saving you some money at the pump, wooden rings are eco-friendly wedding bands with an added benefit: unique style and durability.
Stylish, durable and sustainable; these three words best describe cobalt chrome and tungsten wooden wedding rings. And with a variety of elegant wood inlays to choose from, there’s a variety of style choices for couples seeking exclusive wedding bands.
Choosing your wood wedding ring is a simple two-step process. First, is it going to be tungsten or cobalt? With both alternative metals being well known for their durability, you can’t go wrong with either choice. But cobalt, being a naturally bright metal without needing rhodium plating, is going to have a white hue to it akin to platinum or white gold, whereas tungsten has a deep metallic color classified as gunmetal in color. Both metals are a great platform for a high polish and shine and both are rated near the top of the Mohs Hardness Scale.
So, after you’ve decided whether you’d prefer a lighter metal or darker metal and now it’s on to the wood inlay.
Nature must have a keen eye for fashion because it provided us with great raw materials used as the centerpiece of these wood wedding bands. And there is a little bit of something for everyone in each wood ring.
Each inlay has its own unique patterns and striations and no two rings are exactly the same, making each ring truly one-of-a-kind. Using dense hardwoods traditionally employed in high-end furniture and fixtures, each wooden ring is above and beyond a simple ring, it’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Add in the fact that each ring is hand finished right here in the USA, and you’ve got wedding rings that will not only make the fashionista happy with designer-quality style but also impress those concerned with having form follow function.
