For those who want a more understated look, I created this version of my "bark" band without the stones. While a great choice for guys, this ring was designed to be mixed and matched to your preference and suitable for either gender. Each line is carved by hand, making each piece unique to you.
This ring is made to coordinate with other bands and to complement various engagement ring styles in my collection which you can find here: http://www.lolide.com/category/weddingandengagement

A NOTE ABOUT METALS:
Also referred to as sterling palladium, this is .925 sterling silver, with 3% palladium added. All sterling silver is 92.5% silver with other metals added to give strength and other characteristics. In this case 3% valuable palladium is added conferring some of its benefits, such as durability and tarnish resistance, which creates a superior sterling silver alloy to traditional sterling. However, this alloy is still sterling silver which is the softest of the precious metals and should not be confused with the 950 palladium alloy which is 95% pure palladium and is superior in strength, durability and tarnish resistance, as is gold and platinum.
950 palladium: this is 95% palladium, a strong durable metal comparable to white gold. Palladium is greyer and cooler in tone that white gold. It is virtually hypo - allergenic and does not tarnish
white gold: there are many options with white gold. 14K white is made with nickel which some people, though not many, have a reaction to. Palladium white gold is a nickel-free white gold option. White gold is greyer than silver but lighter than palladium and has a warmer tone to it. White gold is a very hard durable metal as well, and the different karats refer to purity. 14K is 58% gold, 18K is 75% gold, etc.
Yellow gold and red/rose gold are also options, but folks are usually more familiar with these alloys. They mainly differ just in color. Higher karats are a little softer but also richer and deeper in color, so 18K rose or yellow gold has a richer, deeper hue than 14K and 14K more than 10K, etc.
Platinum: This is the densest and most valuable of the metals. It has a whiter finish than white gold or palladium, is hypo-allergenic, and very durable and scratch resistant. It's density if a large part of why it is more expensive as metals are sold by weight.
Please note that this listing is for the single band. However, it can also be ordered as a set or as his/hers, hers/hers, and his/his.
