Many people today are more and more interested in being “Eco Friendly” where possible. This willingness to be Eco Friendly is a driving factor behind many people in their everyday lives. Sometimes it is the big things in life, such as electric cars; sometimes it is the small things, such as recycling that plastic bottle. The world we live in today is so different than the world of yesterday, people care a lot about the environment and want to make changes.
There is a growing demand for all things to be more environmentally sound and this is starting to make an impact in the choices people make for that special day, their Wedding.
To help with this Eco Friendly wood rings are becoming more and more popular as Wedding Bands/Rings. Wood is naturally beautiful and crafted correctly; it provides a band of unrivalled beauty and unmistakable quality.
Getting a pair of wood rings shows not only your commitment to each other but also to the environment. Let the wood compliment your beauty on the day.
Selecting the right wood is critical, most popular are Walnut, Ash and Oak, good hardwoods that have a classic timeless beauty. However, if you want a specific wood this usually can be arranged via a custom set of rings. It is generally a good idea to stick with one of the hardwoods, as their longevity is far greater than the softwoods. Each type of wood has its own characteristics and the different grains and colours offer a myriad of choices.
Once you have selected the right wood for you, it is then important that you speak to your vendor and enquire about the source of the wood. Where did it come from? Is it from an ethical managed forest? Is it recycled or repurposed wood? It is important to understand where the materials come to ensure the rings for special day are what you desired an Eco Friendly Wood ring. This is especially important if you are having custom wood rings created, as this is normally done from wood that has to be purchased specially in for you, therefore it is important to ask that question of where is it coming from.
To add that extra bit of magic they say a ring crafted in the ancient hills of Celtic and Viking settlements adds that extra touch of wonder, so it is important to understand where your ring is made as well.
