Against The Grain, 5mm band.

$930.00

Cast from salvaged driftwood, these rings are cut, shaped, and carved into these classic bands with an earthen twist.

Keeping all the natural grain of the wood, the edges are sanded smooth for a clean and modern look, with the subtle but ungoverned texture of the grain ruling the surface.

The interior of every ring is sculpted out and buffed to a fine comfort fit finish for easy wearing. 

Go against the grain. Do you.

Handmade to order. Every piece made in NYC. This ring is available in 18kt Rose Gold, 18kt Yellow Gold, and Platinum, and a variety of widths, from 4-8mm.

No outsourcing. No Exploitation. Human or Animal.

18k Royal Yellow -

Our 18k Royal Yellow is the perfect blend of yellow Gold’s with a warmer hue - less green than some - which is extremely beautiful - rich and refined - on all skin tones.

18k Rose Gold - 

Our 18k Rose Gold is the result of an infusion of copper and a touch of silver into our Gold, giving it that warm, rich, earthy quality that makes Rose Gold such a beautiful metal. The silver paling it from the otherwise ‘red gold’, the copper adding a blush. The result is what we call our “dusty rose”. Indeed this just might be our all-time favourite metal blend.

Our Signature 10k Gold -

Our signature 10k Yellow Gold is an unsung hero. An underestimated Gold, this is a beautiful, very strong, pale and creamy gold that shines  brilliantly and pops against all skin tones - being naturally less yellow and brassy than the typical 18-24kt Golds.

As the flashy "Kardashian culture" evolved, the higher karat golds became more coveted, but time and time again it's my 10 karat pieces that people notice and fall in love with. It's a beautiful fine metal, strong, classy and unpretentious. We're bringing it back!

Platinum -

Platinum is a white metal, but unlike gold it is much stronger, and therefore used in jewelry in almost a pure form (approximately 95% pure).
Platinum is extremely long wearing and is less grey than the mislabeled white gold, so it does not need to be Rhodium plated like white gold does.
Platinum is very dense (heavy), so a platinum ring will feel heavier than an 18kt gold ring.

White Gold -

We do do white gold on occasion, but are less fickle about the karat. White gold is actually a grey metal, and is almost always Rhodium plated to appear more white. For this reason, we tend to use 14kt White Gold as it is strong and durable.

Ring size is very specific to each individual, so I highly recommend you print out our Ring Sizer for guidance - it is VITAL that you print it out at 100% scale on your printer. Some printers automatically adjust the scale settings, so please be diligent when checking.

The thicker the band, the more snuggly it will fit, so I recommend you size up half a size for anything north of a 5mm wide band.
