Big Wave Challenge 2014

Mahalo Nui Loa to all of the participants and spectators that came out for Gerry Lopez's Big Wave Challenge at Mt. Bachelor last weekend. Many of the winning contestants walked away with pieces of wood inlaid jewelry provided by Koa Wood Rings. A special thanks to pro-surfers Shane Dorian, Ian Walsh and DK Walsh for making the trek from Hawaii for the event. They were joined by Joe Curren and Chris Christenson competing in the "Pro-Surfer" Division with Ian Walsh taking first. Fun to see these guys surfing frozen waves. Come out and see it for yourself next year! Aloha

Ancient Kauri Bangle - Rose Gold

The product absolutely not the same as the website photo

Sorry to hear you are unhappy with the bangle. Please reach out to us via email as we’re happy to help. If unhappy with the wood inlay, we use real wood which will vary slightly in grain, pattern and color in each piece.

Beautiful price

My partner was stocked with his chain and the beautiful piece of wood from his home country. Before telling him what it was , he asked me with excitement.

Great addition to a Pandora bracelet

My wife was born in Hawaii, and loves wearing some Koa on her Pandora bracelet. Arrived quickly and looks fantastic. Great product, great service.

Love this

My wife and I splashed out and refreshed our wedding rings. Living in the US, I loved the idea of wearing some NZ Kauri on my finger to remind me of home. The ring arrived quickly and looks great. Love it!
