This is a blue dyed Tennessee whiskey barrel ring - made and cut to order from an authentic used whiskey barrel sourced from the Jack Daniels distillery. The barrel is sent directly to us from the distillery, where we break it down into individual staves that are cut and hand turned to make rings. This ring is impregnated with acrylic resin, which provides extra strength and resiliency to the ring, as well as imparting a blue color. Each ring is unique because no two pieces of whiskey barrel wood are the same. Wood patterns and colors will vary somewhat from ring to ring. Listing photos are made outdoors - indoor lighting may affect how the color of a ring is perceived.
For other rings made from bourbon, whiskey, or wine barrels in a variety of patterns and colors, please check out the other options available in my shop: https://hawkinshandicrafts.com/shop/19248734/whiskey-barrel-rings
Ring Size: 5-13. Larger or smaller sizes may be available by request.

Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information which you authorized Etsy to provide to me, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information, if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

If you have a preferred wood or combination of woods, but don't see it listed, please contact me - I am happy to create something custom for you.
Engravings are made with hand wood burning techniques, and have a rustic appearance that matches the ring. Engravings can be added to your order using the personalization option on the listing page. Not all woods are suitable for wood burned engravings, and we do not offer that option on rings that we don't feel would work for engravings.
Sizes are in standard US ring sizes. The first exchange for sizing is free for US buyers. Non-US buyers must pay additional shipping charges for exchanges due to sizing.
If you are unsure of your ring size, it is recommended to have your finger sized by a jeweler, or to try an online ring sizing guide such as findmyringsize.com
Care for your ring is generally simple, and only differs from the care required for a metal ring in a few ways:
While it's always better to take any ring off around water, hand washing and showering with the ring on are generally okay. We do recommend removing it before using a pool or hot tub due to the potential for chemical interactions with the finish. Strong chemicals and cleaners should be avoided while wearing the ring.
If your ring becomes significantly scratched, or the finish begins to wear over time or from chemical exposure, simply brush a small amount of superglue over the surface of the ring, and allow it to dry (we recommend superglue bottles with built-in brush applicators). If you have questions - please ask!
Rings are placed inside of a small AMAC (transparent plastic) jewelry box. First Class are sent with a receipt-style packing slip using 100% recycled paper inside of a brown cushioned mailing envelope made from recycled newspaper. We do not offer additional gift wrapping at this time.
Contact must be made with me prior to returns to ensure any issues are handled prior to shipping and to alert me to look for a package. Returned rings should be placed inside their original jewelry box and then placed into a cushioned mailing envelope (available in the shipping supplies at your local post office). Shipping may be done via USPS First Class for locations within the US to provide a cheap option that still provides tracking information. Canada residents are strongly encouraged to utilize shipping with tracking and insurance for your protection in the case of a lost or stolen package.
Please contact me immediately if you suspect a package has been lost or misdelivered. Make certain that you've checked with family members and neighbors, and looked in likely spots where a package may have been left. Call your local post office in the case of a misdelivery so that they can track down your package and correct the delivery.
If your item has been damaged during shipping, you must keep both the damaged item and packaging, be willing to take photos of the damage, and fill out forms from our insurer in order to process your replacement/refund in a timely manner.

The ring is perfect! Exactly as pictured in color! We got the wrong size, but they have a great policy and we will be returning this and getting a half size. Up hopefully it fits! Can't wait to see my hubby wearing this beautiful ring everyday! Update: We ordered the incorrect size not once but twice (our own incorrect thought on his ring size), and the shop was fantastic with communicating with us and making sure we knew it was not a big deal. The return policy is easy to understand and easy to get a new size shipped back once the old had been received! All we had to cover was the shipping which we were happy to do! Finally picked the right size for him and he still loves it! Can't thank them enough for making an awesome reasonably priced beautiful ring with amazing customer service!

Love this ring! My husband picked it out as his wedding ring. It broke due to him being a basketball coach and a player hitting it with the ball. We ordered a new one and the seller was kind enough to offer to repair the original ring if we wished. I am very happy with this purchase and would gladly buy again. Thank you.

The ring I received looked like it came from a completely different listing. I understand that all the rings are uniquely made, but I was expecting it to look somewhat similar to the picture. Mine didn’t. It was completely blue, and I ordered this for the “rustic” look. So it was just kind of disappointing. The owner was very polite when I voiced my concerns, which I appreciate. I was planning on returning the ring, But the shipping, for some reason, wasn’t working, so I just gave the ring to my dad as an extra for him to have. He liked it, so that counts. If anyone decides to purchase this ring, I would suggest getting a picture of the one being sent to you, before he ships it out, to be sure it’s what you’re wanting.
