I really wanted something different for mine and FH wedding rings. I found you could get wooden wedding rings, which is right up my street. I wanted our rings to be special and mean something, so I designed a wooden ring with a flower and shell inlay. The flowers and shells were found at my favourite place in the whole world, where FH proposed! I have my heart set on this ring, but I’ve now discovered that these rings are likely to break. With it being over £400 per ring, I can’t afford to replace it when it does break. I work with children, and I’m forever bashing myself into tables, shelves etc. (This is also due to being incredibly clumsy!) so I decided maybe a metal ring would be better for me, but I can’t find any that offer an inlay. I guess it’s due to things reacting to the metal, but the main reason why I went for the wooden ring was to have the flowers and shells within the ring, as it meant so much to us. Can anyone help me with this dilemma? Has anyone got a wooden ring which has lasted? Can you get a stronger ring with an inlay?

what about having a jeweler engrave a metal ring with a design based on the flowers and shells?

My husband’s ring is made from Jack Daniels whiskey barrel and his father’s white gold wedding ring. It’s coated with a thick epoxy, super smooth, that makes it water resistant.
He wears it all the time and hasn’t had any issues. I had it custom made by a seller on Etsy. He loves his ring!

I love the idea of getting a metal ring engraved with shells designs or in a metal ring cast in the shape of a shell. Wood rings are beautiful but I wouldn’t get one unless you’re willing to replace it down the line. If your heart is set on the wood design, insure it so that you don’t have to worry about replacement costs.
