suggestions for organic-looking rings?

I'm looking for a modern, organic-looking e-ring.  Simple and chic, yet relaxed and not so traditional.  I've checked out Clay Pot, Twist and Ylang.  Any other ideas, ladies?  Thanks!

Thanks for the links, Lori.  I LOVE Sarah Perlis!  Here are some more that I like the feel of, but aren't quite THE ring:

FI and I just bought our wedding bands from Etsy. They are a metal/wood mix and a great alternative for brides looking for an organic option.

Thanks all - the wooden rings are beautiful.  Does anyone know how they wear?  We definitely want rings that will last a lifetime.  Maybe it depends on the type of wood used??

Longevity is a good question! Some of our friends got wooden rings and they broke. They are divorced now and the bride said she just knew it as soon as the ring broke... ugh... I do organic weddings "GREEN" weddings as a speciality and this is a good thread for learning some new sources. Thanks for the posting...

yes, longevity is super important!


if you get a wooden ring, please make sure you get it from a well crafted ring maker.


you can buy them from websites where they make many of the same rings  but the those not might not be the strongest ones.


touch wood makes rings to order. you pick everything, they tell you which are the soft woods, the hard ones.


wood of course well brake, if you dont take care of it.


so- think about it - are you guys working with your hands daily, heavy/soft work??


as much as I love my wood rings, I will probably not wear them every single day, just because I want it to last.


good luck in picking the "right" organic ring for you.
