I finally bit the bullet and ordered a Secret Wood ring. As I previously wrote, I love the Secret Wood website and have lusted after one of their rings for ages. The issue was that I couldn’t decide which one. My choice was narrowed down to these three.
Each ring is one of a kind and made to order (which takes 3 – 4 weeks), so you don’t know what you will be getting until they send you a photograph of your ring for approval.
However, there is a lovely new addition to the site – Secret Inventory – where you can find ready-made rings. Each one of these is also one of a kind, you see the photograph of your exact ring, and they ship immediately! The plus side of this is that it is quick AND you can immediately see what you are getting.
I found this one and fell in love immediately! Isn’t that waterfall just perfect? It is actually the very one they feature on their front page at the moment (to the right below).
It is also featured on the Secret Wood Instagram page
And here it is!
These rings come in gorgeous tiny wooden boxes filled with real greenery (I think it is moss) which smells so so so good!
The ring itself is absolutely gorgeous and fits like a dream. My photographs really don’t do it justice. It is truly a work of art. It is beautifully made, the wooden shank base is perfectly rounded and uniform. It is light and comfortable. There is a different waterfall on the front and back. And the ‘water’ glows in the dark!
I would say if one leaps out at you on the website, pounce, because each one is different. I fell in love with this one when I first saw it featured on the front page of the Secret Wood site. I never imagined the actual ring would be for sale – in my size!
I couldn’t get it into focus but I wanted to show it against the backdrop of the forest which is my back garden.
I have mentioned in my previous articles how I love the design and layout of the Secret Wood site. I can now add that the customer service is amazing. They sent me photographs for my blog and also were quick to respond when DHL briefly lost track of the parcel in Germany. DHL themselves were stellar in finding where it was and making sure it was quickly delivered. I am mentioning this because you can tell a lot about a company when there are glitches and Secret Wood handled it brilliantly. I was thrilled with this whole transaction!
I will keep you updated on how it wears. I won’t be doing anything special apart from avoiding getting it wet for extended periods and taking it off when I am doing anything heavy, like I do with my other rings.
