Men of Steel

Hot new trend in men's wedding rings: damascus stainless steel. The ring featured here is hand-crafted by damascus-steel artisan Andrew Nyce.

The word "damascus" refers to metal with a visible grain pattern, and this distinct steel was used in middle eastern sword-making from approximately the 12th to the 18th century. What man wouldn't love wearing the same metal used to forge legendary swords of unparalleled sharpness and strength rumored to cut through rock? The technique used to create damascus steel is some what of an ancient art, but Andrew Nyce is a master keeping this rare and beautiful art alive.

On his website, Andrew describes his custom rings as "bold, wide designs...sophisticated, yet distinctly masculine. The intricate patterns are as individual as fingerprints"

The coolest thing about these rings is the wood grain pattern is an unpredictable naturally-occurring design. It can be twisted and rendered by the artisan, but not created. So each ring is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind. Just like your fiance!
