Men's Grooved Edge Damascus Steel Ring with Spalted Tamarind Inlay
- Made in USA:
A match made in heaven.
One of our favorite exotic metals meets one of our favorite exotic hardwoods in this epic showcase of the best materials on the market today. The Grooved Edge Steel Ring with Spalted Tamarind Inlay is an exhilarating exploration of what is possible when you bring together incredible metalsmithing and design in a masterpiece that transcends both time and place.
The band is crafted from a high-chromium steel that has been polished to full brilliance to place its unique, striped patterns on proud display. The striations in the metal are further emphasized by the sleek, grooved edges that frame the ring, offering a look that is both contemporary and timeless. The edges are rounded and ground to a comfort fit.
But as much as we love steel, it's the broad inlay of stunning spalted tamarind hardwood running the circumference of the ring that takes center stage. This rare piece of spalted hardwood features contrasting tones and asymmetric patterns. Just like the patterns in the steel, no two inlays will ever be alike. If you're anything like us, you'll soon find that the combination of the steel and spalted tamarind creates a fascinating interaction that you'll love to look at.
We custom build all of our rings from scratch, and we can craft yours in nearly any whole or half size. We can also create 1/4 sizes or make other custom modifications upon request. We can even change out the wood if you want. Trust us, you have options. You can also get personalized engraving on the inner diameter of this ring as an add-on feature.

More about this design:
Modern steel is a variation on an ancient and lost form of pattern welding that once relied on Wootz steel, a high-carbon steel that was developed thousands of years ago in southern India. For centuries, welded steel was regarded as the cutting edge in metalworking, and current methods for producing welded steel retain many of the same properties of this legendary method. Tamarind is a type of hardwood found in tropical locations around the world, but nowhere is it more associated than with the Indian subcontinent. Although much has changed over the millennia, we thought it was appropriate that the major components of this wedding ring are all derived from the same location. Perhaps that why there's just something special about this unique combination.
