wide orchard ring


Capturing the strength and endurance of the heirloom trees in our Sonoma County orchard, this richly-textured band is appropriate for either a woman or a man and makes a gorgeous, modern thumb ring as well. Sold individually in reclaimed 14 or 18 karat rose or yellow gold, sterling silver, palladium or our signature chocolate-brown alloy of gold and copper called shakudo, lined in 18K rose gold. Surprisingly bright-white 19K gold (not rhodium plated) can be made by special order. Coordinating thinner bands also available in different widths.

Dimensions: approx. 7mm wide

Made to order especially for you in 3 - 4 weeks. Please indicate ring size in Notes to Seller upon checkout.

Please note: the shakudo version is temporarily out of stock due to our inability to cast this material in the midst of a studio move. Email me if you'd like to be notified when this option will be available again. Please also be aware that this is a gorgeous option for occasion wear but, similar to a pearl or opal ring, is not intended as a round-the-clock wedding band. The chocolate patina is a surface treatment that is expected to become more softly burnished over time, with a "living finish" that is personalized by the wearer. However, contact with soaps, lotions, perspiration and chemicals will remove the protective lacquer and accelerate wear, and the high copper content makes it more vulnerable to scratches. The gold option is a more care-free alternative for a wedding or engagement ring you'd prefer not to remove.
