Why A Man Might Choose A Wedding Ring With A Wooden Inlay

by Tammy May

If you're a man who is looking at different wedding ring designs with your soon-to-be spouse, it can be fun to look at options that are not traditional. While there's nothing wrong with a simple band, the reality is that jewelry stores have so many eye-catching ring designs today, you may wish to wear something that stands out a little more. One creative ring style that may appeal to you is a wedding band that has a wooden inlay in it. Such rings come in many different designs and feature different types of wood. Here are some reasons that you might lean toward this style of ring.

You Make Your Living Working With Wood

A wedding band that features a wooden inlay can make sense if you're someone who makes his living working with wood. For example, if you're a carpenter or some other type of builder — or perhaps even a woodworker who sells custom products to people online — wood obviously has a close connection with you. It can be appropriate for your wedding ring design to be representative of you as a person, and choosing a ring with a wooden inlay can make sense in this situation.

You're Passionate About The Outdoors

You might also lean toward getting a wedding ring with a wooden inlay because you're passionate about the outdoors. Wood is obviously an element that is common in rural areas, and these spaces may be where you most enjoy visiting. For example, perhaps you find comfort in going hiking or camping and being surrounded by trees. Choosing a wedding ring with a small piece of wood inlaid in it can remind you of the joy and comfort that you get from nature — and, hopefully, encourage you to get out into it as often as possible.

You Like To Be Different

It's possible that you could have a deep reason for choosing a wedding ring with a wooden inlay — but it's also possible that you might simply like the look of the ring because it's not a standard design. There are plenty of men who like to be different in one way or another, and you might fit this description. For example, perhaps you've frequently looked for different clothing than your friends wear, or are happy taking different types of vacations than most people take. If you're someone who strives to be unique, the unique design of this wedding band can be a good choice.

Metal Sensitivity: Advice From a Jewelry Lover

Ever since I was a child, I've loved the look of fashion earrings. However, I soon discovered that my ears are sensitive to metal-coated earrings. Rather than spend a small fortune for custom made jewelry, I've found retailers that sell hypoallergenic earrings. These earrings are made for individuals such as myself with sensitivity to metals. Check your high-end department stores or local jeweler. You'll find hypoallergenic earrings in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold, and platinum. The main thing is to never choose jewelry containing nickle, as this is commonly the culprit. A good alternative to metals listed above is titanium jewelry, as this is considered to be hypoallergenic. Also, avoid using harsh detergents or chemicals to clean your earrings and jewelry, as this may cause further irritation. Mild dish soap may work well, but be sure to rinse your jewelry thoroughly.
