We started the tungsten Koa wood ring trend that is now copied throughout the islands and we still make the best wood rings. It all comes down to the koa wood. Sure you can find cheap "koa" rings with questionable wood, but we hand pick and finish our "curly" grained Koa from the Big Island of Hawaii. Why does this matter? Only the tightest (and therefore most rare and expensive) curly Koa will undulate in the light...the wood looks like it's moving. Pictures simply can't do it justice.
I created the tungsten and Koa rings out of necessity. I destroyed a wood and titanium ring that I purchased for my wedding and wanted something that would stand up to my renovation jobs and stay looking brand new. After months of trial and error, I finally figured out how to bend (try bending a toothpick around your finger) the wood properly and was off and running.
The Koa tree is truly the king of the Hawaiian woods and has lent itself to create everything that is wonderful about the Hawaiian Islands and its culture. From the ancient Hawaiian outrigger canoes to the spawning of the first surfboards, Koa deserves its place at the heart of the Hawaiian culture. Because of its amazing beauty, it adorns the palace walls and is one of the most expensive woods on the planet. Koa literally means "warrior" in the Hawaiian language and has come to symbolize strength, fearlessness, bravery, bold action, and the warrior spirit.
Gorgeous ring, now if only COVID would let us get to Kona for the wedding! I originally ordered the wrong size. Brett sent me a few options so we could get the right size and send the others back. Saved a ton on shipping things back and forth to get the right size. Thank you!!!
I should probably start this off by saying that my husband was born in Hawaii and lived there for about 25 years. He left Hawaii and moved to Virginia, and has since become the biggest critic of “Hawaiian” type things. His biggest pet peeve is when something is called Hawaiian just because it has pineapple in it or on it. After almost 10 years together, we got married. Long story short.. found out he’s diabetic. Changed our diet. He lost weight, his wedding ring didn’t fit anymore. Because of what it’s made out of, I was told his ring couldn’t be resized, so I set out to find another that met his “not to flashy” criteria. I happened upon this shop and hit the jackpot. Because I wanted it to be a surprise, I guessed a ring size I hoped would fit and when it arrived I gave it to him. Although it was the wrong size, he absolutely loved it! After 2 more ring size changes, which were super easy, we finally have one that fits and he is so happy with it. I guess it’s common for people in Hawaii to move, usually to California or someplace on the west coast. He went a bit further when he came to Virginia and says it’s nice to now have a “true” piece of home with him. Thank you so much!
What a great price for a Koa wood ring! It is beautiful. It is very comfortable too. I am definitely happy with it. I would order a replacement in a heartbeat if I ever lost it!
When I got married earlier this year I knew I didn't want a traditional gold band. So I started to research all the alternatives. There are a lot of cool rings out there, more than I realized! But when I saw this ring I knew it was the right one! I'm so happy with it.
It's a comfortable fit, looks great, I haven't had it long enough to determine its' durability, but I'm not worried either way because of the lifetime guarantee. They should be charging way more for these rings.
