    I don’t have one, but my fiance’s wedding band is wooden. I let him wear it for one day after it came in the mail and he didn’t want to give it back to me.He can’t wait to wear it and said he loved how light it was.

    Here’s a photo!

    my fiance would laugh at me if I suggested this to him. Not our style. But it is a cool idea 🙂

    I’ve never even heard of this! But what a cool idea.  It’s different.

    I love love love wooden rings.  They’re so pretty.  I wouldn’t want one as my wedding ring, though, because I’m hard on my hands, and I’d destroy it in weeks.  The brittleness is something to keep in mind.  If it’s your style, though, and you either are nice enough to your hands for it to survive or you don’t mind having to replace it every once in a while, go for it!  I will stand over here and be jealous.  🙂

    I like the idea of a wooden ring but love the combination of wood and metal like this one.  I think it would be more durable too!

    My love is an outdoorsman and he wanted something that suited his personality.  We decided on a wooden ring, but we didn’t want one that would break down over time so we found a ring on etsy that is black zirconium with a red oak burl inlay.  We went through jackjewelryinc.  Nicole was great to work with and I would absolutly recomend them.

    I love wood rings! I am seriously considering them as an option for rings for SO and myself.

    My good friend and her husband have wood wedding bands and they love them- however she frequently comments about how often the rings need to be polished before they start looking shabby (and she is a very low maintenance kind of girl, too, so I figure it must be true).

    I defintely think wood rings are very cool.  But, I’d be concerned with durability?  Water? Warping?  I like the idea of them being on some type of silver for the durability, unless there isn’t something that I know?  (very possible, this is the first time I’m ever hearing of this!)

    Still, very cool!

    I think these are very cool. This is the first I’ve seen an all wooden ring! Love the look, but would look into durability/maintenance required. Hate to admit it, but I think my inner princess still prefers gold/platinum 😉

    I love wooden rings! DH and I wanted to get one for each of us while we were in Jamaica but couldn’t find any. We had some friends who bought wooden rings while on their honeymoon and ended up loving them and wearing them instead of the rings they bought originally!

    I love wooden rings!  I think they are so beautiful and ethical.  I absolutely think it could work, but I accidently voted “other.”

    i think they’re beautiful…but my friend once made me a wooden ring and it shattered not too long after i started wearing it. not sure if it’s just that it maybe wasn’t made that well or what, but i’d worry about it’s durability.
