Love can grow stronger with every passing year. Like a great tree, its roots push deeper, its arms reach wider, and it grows strong enough to weather any storm. You can carry that symbolism with you alway with this earthy, faux bois titanium wedding band.
This handcrafted wedding ring from metal artist Tavia Brown has a core of sterling silver, wrapped in a band of titanium. The titanium band has a rippling texture that evokes the organic texture of tree bark. The artist then uses a torch to give the titanium a rich, bronze-like "heat patina."
Brown loves to embrace contradictions in her work. Titanium is an extraordinarily durable metal, highly resistant to corrosion, but it can also be delicate—it is extremely lightweight, and nonallergenic with human skin. It takes great care and craftsmanship to sculpt these metals, and yet the wood grain evokes the simplicity and innocence of the natural world. And while you may not be able to carve your initials into this wood, by wearing it you show token that someone's initials are engraved deeply on your heart. Handmade in Charlottesville, Virginia.
