    @jude7186: My Fiance 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!

    @jude7186:  Just wondering how the wood inlay ring is holding up. My Fiance 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 Darling Husband works on air planes so he takes it off for work also!
