The M1 Garand served as the rifle for the Greatest Generation, and was key part of the allies winning world war 2. This ring has wood from  one of the most epic parts of American history. This ring is made of a comfort-fit scratch resistant High-Tech Ceramic to complement an inlay from a reclaimed wood cut from M1 Garand gun stock. Wood features unique patterns and distress marks from history. Could your M1 wood have been used in a rife at the Normandy Landing at D-Day, or in the battle of the Solomon Islands in the pacific. We can’t be for sure but it’s always a possibility. But we do know the wood has a story to tell. It is sealed to prevent water damage and gives the ring a consistent, smooth finish that matches the texture of the metal. General Patton called it "the greatest battle implement ever devised." Our tungsten rings are extremely scratch-resistant, second only to diamonds. Tungsten rings are comfort fit and scratch resistant. Hand crafted 100% In Utah USA by our skilled jewelers, these beautiful bands can be customized as well. Copy of the original certificate of authenticity is included.

The Next Generation

After the retirement of Charlie, Gene who was Charlie's son took over the company and expanded to multiple locations across Florida. Fun Fact: During the 1980's our top seller was The "Mr.T Gold Chain Starter Kit."

Continuing The Legacy, Four Generations Strong

Derrick, Gene's son continued the expansion by helping his son "Broderick" start two locations "BW James Jewelers" in Tennessee.
