Rings and other jewelry, as you well know, don’t necessarily have to be made from precious metals and cost a fortune. In fact, some of the most eye catching pieces are made from mundane materials. The rings from a company called Secret Wood are made from resin and wood, and we’d pick them over fancy designer jewelry any day. They take a piece of wood, split it, and fold it into a ring shape, then cast the splintered ends into a clear resin. It’s the splintered bits of wood that create the otherworldly landscape, and since each one is hand made and no two pieces of wood split quite in the same way, each ring is unique. It’s a cool idea, and one you’ll have to pay between $90 and $180 to own, but you’ll have quite the conversation piece on your finger for your troubles.
