YOUR ANTLER OPTIONS FOR OUR JEWELRY

For nature-lovers and hunters, our naturally beautiful antler rings and accessories are a top choice. Opt for a one of our naturally shed specimens, each one-of-a-kind, or send us your own antler to use in your favorite accessory, wedding band or engagement ring design.

Read on to learn more about antler characteristics, design inspiration and more information on how to send us your own specimen to use in a piece of custom jewelry.


DEER ANTLER COLOR & PATTERN VARIATIONS

It is important to note that the color and pattern of the antler can vary greatly from ring to ring. Effects on color and pattern include what the buck rubbed their antlers on, the geography they lived in, diet, genetics, and even age. Because of this, you can be sure that your custom deer antler ring will be one of a kind. This also means that the color of the antler in our photos may not be the same as the color in the item you receive. The good news, when ordering just let us know if you have a preference and we will do our best to use your preferred color and pattern of antler in your item.

The antler on the inner sleeve of this sandblasted titanium design is primarily white with contrasting specs of black.

The antler inlay on this design has a mix of beautiful colors and a more pronounced, grainy pattern.

The light brown antler on this ring perfectly complements the dark brown wood also featured in this wedding band design.

Adding a bit of dye to antler has a gorgeous, colorful result. We have a variety of hues available, including blue, red and green.


YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR ANTLER FROM OUR STOCK

If you are partial to a certain antler pattern and/or color, please let us know. We will do our best to use one of our naturally-shed specimens that we believe will result in the final look you desire. If you are here for an in-person consult, you can see our specimens up close and make your selection. Otherwise, we will email you high-quality, scanned images to choose from like these. Each is numbered and you simply tell us the specimen number you prefer!
