So who are we?
Ché Garcia -Founder
Originally from Oregon, USA, Ché moved to the Big Island of Hawai'i in 2003 and found work as a carpenter. Within weeks he fell in love with the islands, its native woods and a woman who would later become his wife. It was these three events that inspired the creation of a Hawaiian Koa wood inlaid wedding ring. Being an avid waterman and surf photographer, Ché spent a lot of time in the ocean and wanted a unique ring that was not only comfortable, waterproof and durable but represented his new home, love for woodwork and his Hawaiian born wife. At the time, a durable wood inlaid ring designed for daily wear in an active lifestyle did not exist. Determined to create such a ring, Ché utilized his woodworking skills and developed the rings we offer today.
After many years of business supporting environmental charities in Hawai'i and California, Ché recognized there was potential for his products to help protect native forests everywhere. In 2019, Ché moved his family to South Australia to pursue these opportunities and develop a business model to increase awareness and raise funds for native forest initiatives across the globe.

Not only is the quality of the product outstanding, but the customer service with Woodsman Jewelry is superb - personal, prompt & efficient. We are soon to be third time (& steady) customers!
I bought my ring 8 years ago. I wanted to get it cleaned up. Instead I was given a new one and only had to pay shipping and handling. Of course the ring was gorgeous. The service is impeccable.
I got this ring for my son’s 21st birthday and he loves it. It is beautifully made and looks so stunning
My husband got his on our trip to Oahu a few years ago so I decided to get one for myself and I love it it is very comfortable and I like how it has the islands on the inside of the band
We are so happy with this wedding band for my husband. We got married on Maui, and our daughter was born there, so it was very fitting to have a Hawaiian Koa wood ring.
It’s lightweight, stylish and feels great on (apparently).
We got married in the Redwoods so this ring was a very special find. I had some questions about customizations and the wood, and received replies quickly. Handsome ring, and well made.
The rings look exactly like the pictures on the website and the rings fits perfect. Thank you so much for everything. We can recommend woodsman jewelery to 100%.
My husband loves the forest and I wanted him to have a piece with him for our wedding day. It made the perfect accessory and he is eager to wear it for many days to come.
Me and my husband got eloped in Hawaii and we had found this ring last minute and knew it was the one… he ended up losing it in the lake when we got back home and we really wanted to have the same ring and came upon this site and was able to find the exact same one! And it was nice that we could get it engraved as well this time around. The ring is beautiful and the service was great as well!
My husband loves his wedding band and we especially love the care and attention that this company gives to its customers. Thank you!
This ring is awesome. I bought it to replace my lost wedding band after visiting Hawaii on our 20 the anniversary. Craftsmanship is fantastic.
This company is awesome! My son picked out my Koa ring in Honolulu in 2011. They have repaired some damage and when I felt that the color would change with any further repairs sent me a new one under their Lifetime Guarantee. I will be purchasing a bracelet soon to go with my ring. Mahalo for everything.
Beautiful work, the owner is friendly, and the items make great gifts. Highly recommend!
This is my third ring from Woodsman and the quality and craftsman ship is superb.
