LASHBROOK - 14kt Gold w/Desert Ironwood Inlay
Our precious metals include white, yellow, and rose gold, as well as palladium and platinum. All classic bands are cut from precious metal tubing made through hot extrusion. Hot extrusion is a complex process that results in a precious metal that is easier to stretch and size, has zero porosity, and is more dense. This type of metal processing creates an unparalleled precious metal ring.
Gold’s ability to be molded, shaped and carved into intricate designs has made it a popular metal for use in jewelry over the centuries. Gold is measured in karats (K). Karats refer to the purity of gold, with 24K being the most pure. Interestingly, pure gold is rarely used in jewelry because it is so soft. Gold is typically mixed with other metals to make it stronger and more durable for everyday wear. We offer 10K, 14K, and 18K gold for precious metal bands.
Desert Ironwood is a very rare tree, only growing in the Sonoran Desert, with a very attractive grain pattern, good contrast and some figuring. It is highly sought after amongst craftsman for small turning projects. This wood is very hard and dense – so dense, in fact, it is among the few species that sink in water.
Each piece of hardwood varies slightly in character, color, and grain pattern, ensuring every wood ring is truly one of a kind. Wood’s raw, organic nature and inherent beauty is both rustic and refined. Its rich origin and exclusive markings speak to its distinctness amongst traditional metal wedding bands.
A hardwood ring begins as a solid block of hardwood. Our skilled artisans cut circles from the solid block and then secure it to the ring. After it’s been secured, the hardwood is sanded, polished and sealed with a medical grade resin.
This layer of resin protects hardwood rings from moisture and water damage, and scratching. It also acts as an insulator to the hardwood, protecting it from cracking in daily wear.
In the case of the resin being scratched, we stand ready to refinish the ring
