Handcrafted African Rosewood inlay Ring. Expertly crafted from an instrument grade piece of African Rosewood and masterfully inlaid into a premium Stainless Steel Ring core.

Bubinga, also known as African Rosewood, is an immensely popular exported African hardwood renowned for its strength, beauty, and quirky name. This remarkable wood holds a special place in the world of jewellery and crafts, captivating enthusiasts with its unique qualities.

With its distinct grain patterns and deep reddish-brown hues, bubinga exudes a natural elegance and visual appeal. Its resemblance to rosewood has earned it the name African Rosewood, although that name is more commonly applied to another Guibourtia species. The wood's rich colours and varied grain patterns add a touch of sophistication and charm to jewellery and crafts, making each piece truly unique.

Not only does bubinga possess remarkable aesthetics, but it also boasts an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Its modulus of rupture (MOR) ranks among the very best in the world, further enhancing its desirability for creating durable and resilient pieces.

However, bubinga's similarity to true rosewoods has resulted in challenges. It has been heavily exploited in the Chinese hongmu (rosewood) market, leading to bans not only on true rosewoods but also on bubinga. Despite these restrictions, bubinga remains highly sought-after for its undeniable beauty and strength.

Explore the allure of Bubinga, appreciate its distinctive qualities, and wear an exceptional piece that stand as a testament to its enduring beauty.

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.
