Board Rings FAQs

What are Board Rings?

Board Rings are rings hand crafted recycled skateboards. We source our boards from local skate shops and donations from friends. Since these are recycled and usually destroyed boards, each design has a limited quantity available.   The total number of rings we can make from each board depends on the board and how damaged it is.  But this means that only a small number of people will have a ring exactly like yours!

Can I wash my hands or get the ring wet?

Yes!  Board Rings are sealed and unaffected by water.  We have worn ours in the shower, washing hands and even wore them snorkeling in the ocean!  Although we don’t advise this unless you have a tight fit... my son’s slipped off somewhere in Emerald Bay in Catalina. That’s why our first model is named the “Catalina!”

How durable are the rings?

Skateboards are made of surprisingly strong wood.  We shape our rings to be relatively thin for comfort, however we seal them with a special hardener that adds to the rigidity.  They are not as strong as a gold ring of course but they do not require any special care to avoid crushing.

How do I know my ring size?

You can find simple step by step instructions here.  

What if I order the wrong size?

 If you order a size that doesn't fit, send us an email at OCBoardRings@gmail.com and we will do our best to either make an adjustment or swap out your ring for a different size.  Please note that since we make our rings from recycled boards, there is a small possibility that we need to swap for a different style if we have used the entire board. Depending on circumstances, shipping fees may apply for a ring swap or adjustment.

What is your return policy?

We want you to love your new Board Ring and show your friends.  If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason within 60 days, we will refund your purchase or replace your ring if you'd prefer after we receive your returned ring.  Our policy lasts 60 days. If 60 days have past by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.  More information on our returns policy can be found here.

How long will it take to get my ring?

In most cases our rings are hand crafted once the order is received.  This allows us to ensure we get the exact sizes we need out of every board.  With this in mind, please allow 3-5 business days for us to make your ring and prepare it for shipping. 

Why are some rings no longer available?

Board Rings are made from recycled skateboards that we source from skate shops and friends.  Every board has a slightly different variation of layers creating the different colored bands.  Therefore, in most cases, once we've consumed a board, that design will be retired.  This is part of what makes Board Rings so unique!  Some boards are in worse shape than others when we receive them and as a result, we are only able to make a small number of rings.
