Horse Chestnut

Best known for the conkers it drops in the autumn, the horse chestnut tree wood ranges from pale and creamy to light brown, with a smooth, fine texture and grain. Its soft texture makes it ideal for carving, though it is used for little else. Our horse chestnut came from a tree surgeon. It's a very light coloured wood, and as such is best suited to pendants, studs or cufflinks as opposed to rings that get a lot more wear.
