African Blackwood and Reclaimed Balkan Oak Wine Barrel Wood Ring
"Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of Chambertin." - Napoleon
This is a unique statement piece with a lot of character and history! Made of two layers of African Blackwood bracing a band of oak reclaimed from barrel staves from Balkan wine casks, this ring is positively stunning. Wine is stored and aged in oak casks placed in caves in the Balkans, a region well known for excellent wine production. The dried wood from these old casks has absorbed some of the natural colour and character of the wine, and actually smells like grapes when it is worked! The contrast with the Blackwood lends this unique ring a rich, classy appearance that is sure to get a lot of attention. A great gift for the wine lover in your life... or for yourself!
This ring is handmade for you according to your size and specifications and ready to deliver in 1-2 weeks. These rings could be used as wedding bands, couples rings for engagements, groomsmen gifts or bridesmaid gifts, or just for every day wear. You are sure to turn heads and get compliments!
