My FI is thinking of getting a wood inlay ring for his wedding band. I love the look of it but I just can’t help but worry about how long it’ll last.
I know wood & water don’t really mix well. For example… placing a cold glass of water on wooden furniture = damage!
Does anyone have a wood inlay ring and have you seen it get damaged over time?
Here’s what it looks like…

@jude7186: My FI got a carbon fiber inlay on his. I think it really depends on the type of metal mainly. Pick something good. Tungsten might shatter, etc.

Is the wood protected by anything?
Came across a website with similar styled rings and loved the look of the wooden inset. I was thinking the same as you, but if you look carefully, you can see that while the wood is inset, it doesn’t reach to the same height as the metal. Instead, it’s covered by some kind of protector so it wouldn’t actually be affected by the elements. That would probably make it less likely to be damaged by water and similar things.
I can’t be a hundred per cent sure, as I’ve only ever seen them online and not in person, but you could always contact customer service and find out!

Well… He kept having his heart set on it! We bought one this week and we paid a little more to include waterproofing. I hope he likes it when it arrives! Now we have to wait 4-5 weeks.

@jude7186: Just wondering how the wood inlay ring is holding up. My FI has his heart set on one and I wanted to know how it’s doing!

Here is ours, we ordered them from Etsy Rings by Johan they were custom made beacuse he dosen’t show any rings smaller then 4mm in his shop. He has a coating that makes the water proof ect. Mine in 2mm with .3mm 18k gold and his is 4mm with 2mm titanium. We have had them about a month.

It seems with the coating they should last, but I do take mine off when I clean ect. My DH works on air planes so he takes it off for work also!
