This is a beautiful, handcrafted Artisan ring made in my small shop in Ottawa, Ontario, in Canada. Fiddleback Kotibe is a beautiful exotic wood that offers a cinnamon colouration and a striking wavy pattern and figuring. Each ring is sealed and finished to a high polish. This ring is offered on a 6mm and 8mm polished white ceramic ring cores, but please ask about custom core options. US full and half ring sizes from 6 - 13 are available. If you require a custom order at a different size, please send me a message and I will do my best to accommodate. These rings are made using the Bentwood technique. This method of wrapping several layers of stabilised wood veneer around the core results in a stronger, more beautiful ring than those simply cut from blocks.
Shown in 8mm comfort fit width.
The wood is well stabilised, but it is advised to avoid prolonged submersion in water, such as for bathing, swimming, or doing dishes. The ring will last many years if cared for properly. An occasional light buffing with wood appropriate polish will keep your handmade ring looking great. Please avoid harsh abrasives.
IMPORTANT - RING SIZING:
Please be certain to have your ring size checked professionally by a jeweler (usually a complimentary service) to ensure that you will have an accurate fit. To avoid any issues with the sizing, it is strongly advised not to use unreliable methods such as an online printable ring sizer or measuring by wrapping a string around your finger. My bentwood rings are sized per the US standard ring sizing specifications and will be double-checked prior to shipping. If the wrong size is ordered by mistake, there will be fees to build a replacement ring. I will work with the customer to find a solution, but accurate sizing is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Exchange fees due to incorrect sizing will be a flat rate of 40%** of the regular (non-sale) price of the ring, plus separate shipping (typically $15 to Canada and the USA). Higher shipping costs will apply to international destinations. In addition, the original ring must be returned in "as new" condition. Please note as well that wider cores (e.g. 9mm-10 mm) will typically fit a little more snugly than narrower widths, such as 6 mm. Please consider going up a half size for this wider option.
**Note that dual bentwood designs (bentwood wood outer and inner cores) will incur fees of 50% of the original price of the ring, plus the shipping charges stated above.
Please note that I now sell plastic ring sizers at cost that work quite well.
INCLUDED WITH ORDER:
1. A made-for-you bentwood ring in your choice of several exotic wood options, sizes, and widths.
