Koa wood was traditionally used for the creation of unique gifts for royalty and encompassed many meanings such as bold, fearless and courageous. At SelectWeddingRings we use only certified responsibly sourced Koa wood for its lustrous shine and depth to create our unique, captivating wedding band collections. Koa wood has become one of the most expensive woods in the world and for this reason it often adorns the walls and halls of palaces. Native to the island of Hawaii the Koa tree is naturally resilient and exceptionally strong under rough conditions and has been greatly treasured in these areas since ancient times. The word symbolizes bravery, strength, bold action, fearlessness and the warrior spirit with the beat of ancient drums.
