The Story

Tide pools collect beauty and sustain life on a schedule influenced by the moon. Water flows in and out of the pools, nurturing the strong creatures which call them home.

Wear a ring from the Tidepools Collection as a reminder of your strength, your daily mindset, and your abundant gratitude for the ebbs and flows of life.

Celebrate your journey, milestones, and your connections by celebrating yourself, because in a WEND Tidepools ring, you become the tide pool the moment you slip one on.

Thin Tidepools Ring Details

Tidepools MEDIUM rings are approximately five millimeters wide, and are available in:

14K Yellow, 14K White, or 14K Red *Eco-Gold.

*Eco-Gold is 100% SCS Certified Recycled Gold.  

What is an Heirloom Gem?

If you have inherited a meaningful gemstone, WEND can set your gem into one of our collection rings. Our rings are made to order, so this new ring will take between 6-10 weeks to complete. But, bear with us because you will have something more meaningful in the end!

How This Works

You choose a ring from our BYOG collection, and bring in or send us the piece of jewelry you'd like us to pull the gem from. We will pull the stone from its setting, measure it, clean it, and get to work carving a wax ring to fit your gemstone. Once the ring is made, we will set your gemstone in it!

What gemstones work? Essentially any! If a stone is meaningful to you, it is meaningful enough to place in one of our rings. In the rare circumstance your gem will not work, we will help find a suitable replacement.

In our WEND collections, we focus on round gems. We admit to having a preference for round if you are choosing between several gemstones. But, we are happy to set other shapes as well for an additional $100 fee.

If you'd like additional stones in your ring, the setting fee for each is $40.

Can We Use the Gold?

Usually, we can. If we pull your gemstone from a piece of jewelry which is stamped with a gold karat stamp, we can likely add this metal into your new ring. Heirloom gem and heirloom gold ? Win/win/win!

If you have enough gold to cover the entirety of the new ring, we will extend a 20% discount to the listed price.

BYOG Assumption of Risk:

We LOVE reusing gems and always use the best practices to protect them. However, you need to know that gems may still crack while unsetting or setting them.

If we use your heirloom gem, you agree to assume the risk that it may be damaged or destroyed. If this happens, WEND will do our best to make plan b work for you.

Ring Size:

WEND rings are hand-crafted with texture all around the band. For that reason, they are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to re-size.

Some designs are more easily re-sized than others, but it is best for everyone if we are certain of your size before we make your ring.

For this reason, in many cases we cannot offer re-sizing of your ring.

 How do we find your size?

  1. If you are in the Seattle area, we will size your finger together at our studio.
  1. For $5, we will mail you a sizing grid for you to test out at home.
  1. Visit two jewelry stores and ask for a complimentary sizing (happens all the time). If both stores size you the same, we can probably trust that outcome. If the two stores size you differently (hopefully they are close), go to a third store as a tiebreaker.

Necklace Size:

The necklaces in the WEND collection come in different lengths, which are noted in the descriptions. Necklaces 24" or longer do not have a clasp.

Why? Because they slide over your head. Clasps serve an important purpose, but if they are not needed, WEND doesn't use them.

Clasps can get caught in hair, they can come undone, and they can visually distract from the necklace.
