Wedding Bands for Him & Her:

  1. If you're interested in wedding bands with some warmth, why not opt for an eco and budget-friendly wood band?

    Touch Wood Rings are made from the wood of blown down and bug-killed trees on the artist's 50 acre property. Each ring is an original custom design that is individually crafted to your specifications and finished to perfection.

    Your touch wood ring will last for many years. It might even last generations depending on how much it's worn and how it's treated.
