About

Where the Unique Combination of Wood & Other Natural Materials have created a "Marriage"

I have created this unique ring shop, which I believe has the strength of a marriage. My combination of unique woods, and inlay materials of the world, form a very unique bond.

I thought long and hard to find a shop name, and then I came across "holz" which is German for wood. I have always admired the quality in German made products, so my shop was created as Holz Ring Shop, with a desire to create a new level of excellence in wood inlay rings, made in the USA! I believe that you will find the items in my shop to be of the highest quality, unique to the types of wood and the design to be of superior craftsmanship.

With the proper reasonable care necessary as noted in my Policies and FAQ's my rings have the potential to last a lifetime. I offer a limited lifetime warranty on all my rings, and please read my shop policies for complete details.

No two rings are alike. Each ring is created to be as unique and special as the individual who wears it. If you have a preferred wood, ring style, or inlay that you do not see listed in the shop, please contact me. And you may add any preferences in the "notes to seller" with your, and if possible I will do my best to accommodate them!

All our rings listed can be customized to your preferences, any of the materials seen in my listings can be re-arranged, combined, or interchanged in a different ring style or band material to meet your desires. So please contact us for availability, and pricing for a custom ordered ring "Just for You". Our email is always on, your comments and ideas have helped me to create some of my most cherished items!

Thank you for viewing Holz Ring Shop, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Welcome valued customer,

I started this shop thinking that I would be making about 60 or so rings a month. I never dreamed I would have such a wonderful response to my work. Then with several unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, I have had to adjust my lead time without notice to accommodate all of my orders in as timely a manner as possible!

Please contact me first to be sure I can deliver by your necessary date, many customers will purchase a "stand in" until their handmade artisan ring(s) arrives!

Please take the time to read my shop policies below! And if you have any questions, my policies have not answered, please "ask a question" on the listing you are interested in for more information!

I enter my orders in my queue for processing from the VERIFICATION date, and by priority of necessary delivery dates! When I receive your order, you will receive a verification email to verify your ring(s) details and your exact sizing that you are ordering. Only AFTER I receive your confirmation, will I enter your order in my queue for processing and with delivery from that date in accordance with my current lead time. And if I have any unexpected circumstances beyond my control, I adjust my order que accordingly for those with specified dates first, so for some it may cause their lead time to be extended to accommodate as many as possible in a timely manner!

While taking care of you and your special day is of the utmost priority, I cannot guarantee that your ring will arrive within your specified time, especially if it is too close to your scheduled date. I do now offer a Rush Order Upgrade but contact me first before adding to cart with your order for availability in accordance with my current lead time!


Thank you for choosing Holz Ring Shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you have any concerns, questions, or special requests, please contact me. I am committed to making your purchase a positive experience.

EXCHANGE POLICY:

I guarantee I will send you the size ring you order, and I triple check each ring, when your blank is made, before I inlay it, and right before I ship it, to insure you get the exact size you ordered! If I make a mistake (send you a different sized ring than what you ordered), I will resolve the issue by expediting (making) a replacement at no charge. Once you have returned the item(s).

If you order the wrong ring size, see my remake policy below.

REMAKE POLICY:

Because my rings cannot be re-sized, any wrong sized rings ordered will require that I make a new ring for you. I do not accept returns, exchanges, or consider any remakes for the wrong size being ordered. It will require you to order and pay for another ring, and will be subject to my current lead time! Therefore I Must Emphasize how important it is to Verify your Size before completing your order.

I go the extra mile to send a verification email after I receive each order to verify the details for your ring, and that your correct sizing has been determined by going to at least 2 reputable jewelry stores, who generally will use thin standard fit ( flat interior) ring sizers on a larger ring in 1/2 sizes to get your exact size and preferred fit(snug or loose). And then you need to try on a comfort fit band in the same size and width you plan to order, and make any size adjustments accordingly before you verify your order! All of my rings can be made in quarter sizing for those who may prefer a more precise fit! And please remember the correct sizing and fit is strictly up to you to decide, and this shop cannot or will not be able to make any sizing determinations for you! I will not enter your order in my queue for processing, and your order will be placed on hold until, I receive your verification!

REFUNDS:

I do not offer a refund for returns. I take my pictures in high resolution with photo lighting to portray the very high quality finished product, and minute extra details that I believe represent my work. So your ring may look different in normal varying light during the day! The wood and the other inlay materials in each ring will vary in details and coloration from the rings pictured to my current stock, and may also be affected by any changes you make in the blank material colors, (titanium to carbon fiber or visa versa) or fill color (clear or black), so please take those into account before you make your purchase!
Payment
I prefer payments through Etsy checkout or PayPal. Other methods may be accepted, but please contact me first.

Tessa will send a sizing and delivery date confirmation after we receive each order. You must look for this email in your "spam" folder if you have not "white listed" our email. We will begin processing your ring asap after receiving your verification for your order or 2 weeks after receiving your order. We do feel this is necessary due to some sizing discrepancies in the past. It also gives you the opportunity to get the correct sizing.
Shipping
LEAD TIME:

Lead time on my orders is adjusted accordingly since my sales are very seasonable! And could be subject to change without notice, even if you do have a specified delivery date, and if I have any unexpected circumstances beyond my control(equipment breakdowns, severe weather problems like my flooding this year, tree storm damage,etc.). If your wedding is under my current posted lead time, please be prepared to get a "stand in" for your ceremony! That being said, we will work diligently so that you can have your unique artisan ring in time for your special day if you provide us with the date.

I enter my orders in my queue for processing from the date you verify the sizing not the date that you order the ring(s), and by priority of necessary delivery dates, with weddings being my highest priority! This means that if you have placed your order prior to understanding these policies, contact me, I will be happy to refund your purchase!

Due to the number of orders I am receiving, I arrange my queue by priority, and may cause some lead times to exceed the stated lead time to allow others to be processed by their specified delivery dates. And if I have unexpected circumstances beyond my control, I may have to adjust my lead time accordingly without notice, since I do not have a way to bulk email everyone who has placed an order from me thru Etsy. So this is why I mention for you to check back with me for updates close to your approx delivery date sent after you verify your order. This is to say, if you are not needing your ring(s) within my current posted lead time you may not receive it (them) until closer to your specified date. This will allow you to place you order and be assured that it will arrive on time for your special day.

If you are not sure, please contact me first to be sure I can deliver by your necessary date, and feel free to contact me for an update.

SHIPPING:

WITHIN THE US:

Standard shipping method on all domestic orders is Fed Ex Express 2 day, which provides me with delivery confirmation and tracking with normally 1-2 day service depending on your location within the Continental US. And Fed EX requires a physical address to ship to and does not deliver to PO boxes!

OUTSIDE THE US:

Standard shipping method on all international orders is FedEx International Priority, because it provides tracking and Delivery Confirmation with insurance for me the shipper, and it shows 3-5 day delivery to most countries. But with any local customs restrictions and delays, this may add to your expected delivery date. If you are requesting shipment outside the US, there may be restrictions and prohibitions on the import of jewelry into some countries, and that import taxes may apply within your country. Please inquire about these issues within your country, prior to making the purchase. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient. I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be? And Fed EX requires a physical address to ship to and does not deliver to PO boxes!

Additional policies and FAQs
LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY:

This warranty will cover repair of any defects in the finish, which are not caused from abuse, or misuse beyond my control. I ask that you use reasonable care to prolong the life of your ring, and we will probably never need to use this warranty coverage. I will determine on an individual basis upon receiving your ring, if it is warranty coverage or its a repair from other influences. If it is a warranty repair, I will gladly absorb the cost of the return shipping as well. See my repair policies below for non- warranty repairs.

REPAIRS:

I offer refinishing to make your ring look like new again, or a restoration for damage from other influences, fees are based on repairs needed. Please contact me, I will be glad to give you an estimate, and hopefully with reasonable care noted on my Ring Design page on my website, you will never need this!

Thank you for choosing Holz Ring Shop!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

It is best to be sized by several professional jewelers who generally will use thin standard ring sizers on a ring, and most of these are in 1/2 sizes to get your exact size and preferred fit (snug or loose). And then you need to try on a comfort fit band in the same size and width you plan to order, and make any size adjustments accordingly before you verify your order! My rings can be made in quarter sizing for those who may prefer a more precise fit! And please remember the correct sizing and fit is strictly up to you to decide, and this shop cannot or will not be able to make any sizing determinations for you!

Reasonable Care:

My rings are very durable for normal everyday wear, and your ring should last a lifetime with reasonable care! But please remember that this is a handmade artisan ring with a wood or alternative inlay, and my design was developed to protect this inlay to the best of my ability on my end, but it is up to you as to how long it will last, with your consideration to the reasonable care! To prolong the life of your ring, you must avoid use of harsh chemicals, solvents, fingernail polish remover, abrasive cleansers, heavy lifting, daily tool usage or contact, very hot & cold temperature changes, complete and prolonged submersion in water or other soapy liquids, shampoo, conditioners, surgical soaps, etc. that will eventually damage the finish!

Care instructions

My artisan inlay rings require some reasonable care in just simply trying to keep them clean, and most any mild liquid dish soap can be used with a damp soft cotton cloth. I recommend Renaissance Wax for use on all of my bands materials except for the carbon fiber, since it is a woven fiber it may absorb some of the dried unbuffed wax. This wax prevents tarnish and corrosion, and is highly moisture-resistant, forming a lustrous, durable, waterproof protective coating, and creates a barrier against fingerprints and lifts away oil and dirt as well! A very small amount rubbed on a lint free dry soft cloth, and left for about 5 -10 minutes until it forms a dull gloss, and then gently buff to bring back the gloss.

Ring Design and Durability

I devoted about a year developing a very water resistant and durable finish to use on the inlays in my rings. I wanted to be able to create the most durable inlaid rings on the market, since most other ring makers use a standard finish that is not really even water resistant and is only semi durable at the least. This unique finish for my wood or alternative inlaid rings is one of the most durable, water resistant, and UV protective finishes developed for use in marine applications. My wood or alternative inlays are protected by the band material on each side, and recessed in the band to allow them to be completely sealed within my multi-layered finish, which magnifies the details after it is buffed to crystal clear finish!

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my rings are shipped in a complimentary brushed satin silver gift ready tin with a suede drawstring pouch(in which colors may vary) with my HRS logo!

Engraving

I do not offer engraving. Most any reputable jeweler can engrave your titanium, stainless steel, or bronze ring as long as they have a way to hold it without damaging the finished inlay area. But my carbon fiber rings cannot be engraved, since it a woven fiber blank and not metal. And the black zirconium is also not engravable since it would damage the heat-treated coating on the ring.

Band Materials

I am currently offering my rings in carbon fiber, titanium, red or yellow bronze, and black zirconium. I do not work with any gold or silver due to the very high cost to have a blank cast for my inlays and their lack of structural strength and durability!

Materials Variations

The rings displayed in my shop are EXAMPLES of rings I have made in the past. As I resupply my stock of woods, and inlay supplies there will be variations in the colors! And if you choose a carbon fiber band instead of a titanium band as pictured, or visa-versa, there will be some variation in the colors of the inlay materials from reflections of the silver band compared to the non-reflective dark band behind with clear fill. The black fill stops these reflections so the colors will be more consistent, but will also vary depending on the inlay material. If the ring pictured has a 10 mm wide band, the materials will have to be sized accordingly to the band width accordingly. So please take this in consideration, when you place your order!

Wood Variations

Most any or all wood darkens some as it ages and as it is exposed to the UVs! And some more than others, like any of the rosewoods have natural oils in the wood that surfaces over time and will darken the wood more than others. Also the african blackwood is so called since it is an alternative to ebony which is the only true natural black wood used in piano keys and a lot of other musical instrument applications, and although it appears very dark brown it will turn almost jet black over time with aging and UV exposure. So take this into consideration if you order a darker wood that it will darken more as it ages, and depending on the amount of UV exposure how long this make take, and how much darker it will get?
