Death is ugly, but our memories and love for the one we lost is not. This stunningly beautiful handmade ring features solid Maple wood (not stickers like many rings you will find online), actual Turquoise stones, and ashes or cemetery soil you send us. We start with a tungsten insert, and build this ring just for you with the memory and energy of the one you lost.
How the ashes are placed in a ring is a personal decision we ask each customer to make. If you want to see the ashes, there will be grey throughout the ring as pictured in this listing. If you do not want the ashes visible in the ring you must note the ordering stating you Do Not Want to see the ashes.
The Maple wood is naturally sourced from a fallen tree on our Tennessee farm.
We use a Tungsten insert; either 6mm or 8mm. Black Zirconium inserts are also available in the same widths.
The Tungsten insert ensures this ring will be durable and comfortable. In terms of durability, tungsten carbide rings are top notch. Tungsten is roughly 10 times stronger than gold and 4 times stronger than titanium. It is a 9 out of 10 on the MOHS Scale of hardness.
Please see the page titled "Instructions for sending Ashes" for complete details regarding the process of shipping the ashes to us.
The color of the inlay is dependent on the color of your loved one's ashes. Cremated ashes range in color from light gray, pale white, dark gray, gray-brown or even grey with black and brown hues. The color of your loved one's ashes are as individual as they are/were.
We will send you a free ring sizer gauge if you are not 100% sure of your size. This ring cannot be resized.
