Handcrafted Leadwood inlay Ring. Expertly crafted from an individually picked piece of African Leadwood and skilfully inlaid into a premium Stainless Steel Ring core.

Leadwood (Combretum imberbe), also known as Hardekool in Afrikaans, is a captivating species sought-after for its remarkable qualities in the realm of wood craft. This extraordinary wood holds fascinating characteristics that make it a perfect choice for creating exquisite pieces of art.

Because of its hardness and ease of turning, it has found application for knife handles, pipes and canes for walking and billiards queues.

Ranked as the sixth heaviest wood globally, Leadwood boasts an impressive weight of 1,215 KG/M3. Its density contributes to its inherent durability and robustness, ensuring that jewelry and crafts made from Leadwood will stand the test of time.

In South Africa, smaller Leadwood trees are particularly popular as a source of firewood for traditional braai. The wood's exceptional density and slow-burning properties make it ideal for providing long-lasting and intense heat during these outdoor cooking events.

Embrace the allure of Leadwood as it intertwines its fascinating qualities into extraordinary jewelry and crafts. With its exceptional weight, traditional use as firewood, and cultural significance as Hardekool, Leadwood adds an intriguing dimension to every piece. Create timeless works of art that showcase the beauty and resilience of this captivating species, cherished for generations to come.

Thanks to our innovative crafting technique, we have been able to create inlay rings with unmatched quality.

We achieve this by utilizing premium stainless steel as a core, with a solid piece of instrument-grade wood serving as the inlay.

Our technique involves using a solid piece of material to create an inlay that does not have any joins, resulting in a durable and long-lasting product.


Our Stainless Steel Inlay Rings are naturally hard-wearing and made to be worn for years to come. We offer a one-year warranty on all our rings, so you can trust in the quality of our products.

Ring Care

Here are some helpful tips to maintain your ring:

  • Although your ring is water-resistant, it's best to remove it during activities such as bathing or handling water and solvents.
  • Avoid exposing your ring to harsh chemicals, such as antibacterial wipes, cleaners, perfumes, and hair products, as these can discolour or warp the inlay.
  • Keep your ring out of direct sunlight for extended periods, as this can cause fading and cracking.
  • Before engaging in activities that involve heavy lifting or abrasives, remove your ring to prevent scratches or damage.
  • If your ring gets wet, dry it immediately with a soft cloth to prevent water damage.
  • If you find that your ring is too tight, don't force it off. Instead, run your hand under cold water and use soap or cooking oil to gently remove it.
