How To Care For Your Wood Wedding Band 

Wood wedding bands are unique and a perfect homage to the natural world. They’re an excellent choice for just about anyone, but if you’re the type of guy who is looking to marry your love of the environment with your new piece of jewelry, a wedding band with wood inlay is the way to go. While grooms can get away with a gentle polish from a micro-fiber cloth on occasion, to ensure your ring remains clean and lasts for a lifetime, follow these brief guidelines.


You Can Get Wood Wedding Bands Wet (But Not Too Wet)

Wood rings and inlays are finished with a resin waterproof coating, so it is okay to get them wet. However, to ensure the longevity of the wood, the ring should be removed when engaging in activities that will expose the wood to water for extended periods of time. This includes baths, showers, and doing dishes. If you work out often and tend to sweat a lot, it would be we wise to remove your wood wedding band when exercising.


Keep Wooden Wedding Bands Away From Solvents (Including Hair Products)

Remove your wedding band if you’re going to be working with or around chemicals and solvents. If you’re working with anything abrasive, you’ll run the risk of scratching it. Put it in your pocket if you’re going to be doing anything that will knock it around too much. If you put gel or other products in your hair or use shaving cream, place your ring in a safe place so it doesn’t get filmy.


For The Active Man

While your wood wedding band matches your natural surroundings when scaling boulders or mountain faces on your next rock-climbing adventure, it’s probably best if left in the car and not on your finger. You don’t want your wood ring getting knocked around. Same goes for guys that pump iron at the gym!


Things To Consider When Buying A Wood Ring

Wood rings come in any size, but once it’s made, it cannot be resized. While fingers can fluctuate in size over the course of your lifetime, your wood ring can’t be taken back and refitted to your new body. That’s okay though, because men’s wood wedding bands are very affordable, so you can always get a new one if the old ring is no longer fitting right. For men who have sensitive skin, wood rings are hypo-allergenic and can be worn by just about anyone.


Wood Inlay Wedding Bands

When a strip of wood is laid within a host material, it is considered a wood inlay. Hitched carries wood wedding bands inlaid in ceramic and tungsten, making them extremely durable and attractive. These rings are more tough than bentwood rings which are made almost entirely of wood. The inlay makes the ring classy yet modern and natural. Our selection of wood wedding bands includes walnut and Koa and comes in 6mm and 8mm widths and in a variety of cuts. The wood inlay is varied and we also offer them complimented with antler or meteorite inlays. Browse our selection of wood wedding bands to find one that fits your style and personality.
