Dakota in Turquoise and Red Alder
When you arrive at the beach and your eyes first land on the bright blue of the waves lapping against the warm, welcoming sand, you get a feeling of being both at peace and alive. Our Dakota Yellow Gold & Wood with Turquoise Inlay ring evokes the same emotions.
With a vibrant blue line of crushed turquoise balanced perfectly on either side by coastal red alder and gleaming yellow gold inlays, this 6mm-wide Dakota ring captures the essence of the coast. Its three equally spaced inlays reflect the tranquil beauty of the seaside. The red alder wood, with its warm, honey-toned character, exudes a beachy charm, creating a sense of harmony and balance. This natural grace effortlessly complements the vivid blue crushed turquoise inlay, a captivating representation of the ocean's splendor.
Experience the essence of enduring craftsmanship and the timeless charm of wood and turquoise with this extraordinary ring—a captivating representation of the serene and vibrant elements found at the heart of every beach experience.

Can I Customize This?
Absolutely! We love to work with our customers to make their jewelry truly their own.
Reach out to us and we can work together to make exactly what you've been searching for.
Can I send my own wood/materials?
Most of the time, yes! Some woods work better than others, but you can likely find a good candidate close by. Fruit trees and hardwoods like oak and maple work best.
You could also consider other natural materials like rock, sand, or shells.
It's best to reach out to us with your ideas and we can work with you individually on the material you have.
How well does the wood hold up?
By placing our bentwood inlays inside of our gold rings, we've created the strongest version of a wood ring.
While a wood inlay still needs some care, you'll be able to wear this ring daily for most normal activities. We recommend you take it off when using harsh chemicals, or doing activities that are hard on your hands as you can scratch the gold and the wood portions.
Can it get wet?
Absolutely! Our rings are designed for normal daily wear. Our owner swims daily in a saltwater/chlorine mix pool without issue. The acrylic coating we add over the wood protects the inlay.
If you notice any gouges/scratches or chipping in this finish you may need to have it refinished before resuming wearing it while in water.
What kind of care does it need?
We recommend taking your ring off when using harsh chemicals (such as nail polish remover, harsh cleaning products, or medicated creams), and when you do activities that are hard on your hands such as working with power tools or rock climbing.
Aside from that, we say where your ring for most other daily activities. If you notice any dull spots on the wood, cracking of the acrylic finish or other issues you can send it back to us for free refinishing. You just need to pay the shipping.
Can you rush my order?
We always try our best to help our customers meet their goals, but some things can't be rushed.
Since all of our pieces are handmade to order there is a certain time constraint we have to work within.
It's best to reach out to us with your deadline before ordering if you are on a tight schedule.
