Can the wood inlay rings be worn in water?

Yes, you can wear all of our wood inlaid jewellery in water. We recommend wearing your wood inlay piece at all times as then the wood can adjust to your lifestyle. It may be best to take your wood inlaid jewellery off if you frequently swim in chlorinated swimming pools. This is because the chemicals in the water there can dry out the wood excessively. Therefore, we don’t recommend choosing a wood inlay ring if you have a job in a hospital or kitchen, or where frequent hand washing is required. Otherwise, normal frequencies of handwashing and wear in the shower or the sea will be no problem.

The natural oils in your skin should keep the wood hydrated. If it’s looking a little dry you can dab it with a bit of teak oil to refresh it. Please see our Sizing and Care page for more information or the Sundries page to purchase extra teak oil or a care pack.
