Tulipwood has a really beautiful range of contrasting colours – from subtle tones of gold and yellow to rich, warm pinks and oranges. It is almost exclusively used for small luxury items and has a high density, making it very durable and can be polished to a very glossy finish.

In the last slides you can see examples of Tulipwood inlaid in a set of 9ct white gold rings and a set of C2B cufflinks.
