Aaron Ruff

Aaron Ruff

The son of a craftsman, Aaron Ruff has grown up with a strong sense of artistry and construction. Working as both a carpenter and cabinetmaker, he enrolled at Parsons to study furniture design. But after taking a class in jewelry making, Ruff soon discovered his true craft. While enjoying the familiarity and technique of creating furniture, he found a more intimate connection with constructing objects that people could actually wear and behold. This connection is distinct in each one of his well-crafted pieces.

Ruff now works out of his Brooklyn studio, creating jewelry inspired by everything from history and literature, to the design of nature and tools of necessity. Ruff also draws from his childhood fantasies of exploration, which lends a playful quality to his work.

              I bought this ring a year ago and I love it more today than when it arrived. At first I was worried by the "chunky" appearance, but it adds so much to your everyday look. My only complaint is that the heart and initials have begun to fade as the dark color highlighting these features is wearing off, but this may be due to my poor care of the ring. It is wonderful and unique :)

                  Comments about PERSONALIZED STUMP RING:

                  My husband was KIA in Afghanistan 2 and half years ago. The time has come that I no longer feel the need to wear my wedding rings, but I do not feel right not wearing a ring on my left hand. A personal emblem that I adopted in my widowhood was the Tree of Life. To me, this ring says that our life's Tree was cut off at the base (we were 24 and 25 when my husband passed) but our love is forever carved into that base. And my own tree will continue to grow and endure. This ring is unique, stylish and fun. A subtle yet meaningful reminder of the love of my life.

                    I absolutely love this ring. My husband and I have been married seven years and he got it for me as an anniversary present this year. It is by far my most favorite piece of jewelry. It has a very special meaning for us as when we were dating eleven years ago we carved our names in a tree and took a picture. This ring was the most perfect gift possible. Worth every penny. I wear it every day. I want more jewelry like this! I really enjoy chunky/stylish jewelry and this is just a perfect piece. I love the quality and weight of it. IT'S AMAZING! Best idea ever for a piece of jewelry.
