We wear two things every day; a watch to keep the time, and a wedding band so that we stay married. We wear them for function not fashion. A wedding band is important, so we wanted something classic, unique, and represented who we are.
We love the outdoors. Love to fish, love to hunt, and love to camp. When trying to decide what to make the ring out of, a shotgun barrel immediately came to mind. At first we thought to melt the barrel down and form a new ring from the steel but at that point, it would be just like any other steel ring. We had to figure out a way to cut the ring directly from the barrel without compromising the integrity of it. This severely limited our options on finger sizes. That is where the “insert” came in. The “insert” gives us the opportunity to make the ring in almost every finger size. It also adds a piece of precious metal to the ring, giving it more overall value.
We wanted to make sure this band was built to last and get better the more you wear it. We made sure to choose the highest quality materials we could find. Each Barrel Band is cut directly from a shotgun barrel. Every insert is either in solid 14kt White Gold, Yellow Gold, Rose Gold or Silver Platinum.
HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA
Most products today are made overseas in order to save money on production costs. We wanted to make it a point to keep everything here in the United States regardless of monetary loss. We are based out of Lakeland, FL, where majority of all the work is done.
Each Barrel Band is meticulously hand crafted by metalsmith who not only boast a combined experience of over 70 years in the industry, but are also known the the quality of craftsmanship they produce. The Barrel Band goes through a thorough process to ensure that every piece, lives up to our high standards.
“Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person.” - Fred Bear
