60 Ideas for Items to Use in Custom Wood Rings

Creative Ideas for Wood Items to Use in Rings

Custom wood rings are the perfect canvas for creating a unique, sentimental jewelry gift. We can take nearly any piece of your supplied wood and incorporate it into a custom wood wedding band, custom wood engagement ring, or even a custom his and hers wood ring set.

The first step in the design process is brainstorming possible wood items to use in your ring(s). There are so many creative ideas that have come from our customers, including a groom’s ring made from a piece of wood from his family cabin. One of our other favorites is a wedding band inlay made from a crushed Jenga game piece. There are size requirements for the creation of a full ring vs. a partial inlay. Learn more about how to send us your own wood for a custom ring.

If you have sentimental wood items that are old, worn, or just too big to keep around, but hard to let go of, you might consider re-purposing part of them into a keepsake ring. Here are some images to get you thinking about what might work for you.
