This stunning engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond bezel set atop a mokume gane shank, accented with contrasting polished and brushed finishes. It was created for a couple from Duvall, WA, and we made a matching men’s band for them at the same time. The clients provided the diamonds for each ring, and they finalized the details of the rings through the online workroom we set up to manage their project. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
There is only one gemstone in this ring, making it a solitaire design. That’s a traditional choice for an engagement ring, but this piece is certainly unique as well, while still keeping with that classic style. Solitaire Engagement Rings
The stone is a round brilliant cut diamond that the clients provided, along with a slightly larger diamond for use in the matching men’s ring. The diamond is bezel set in 14k rose gold, and this nicely complements the mokume section, as it includes some rose gold as well. Matching Wedding Sets
The band itself is made from a lovely mokume gane, with a combination of 14k palladium white gold, 14k rose gold, and sterling silver. The elegant organic patterns you see swirling across the band are the result of the way the metals were forged together, and the technique used was developed in Japan several hundred years ago. Mokume Jewelry
Both the men’s and women’s rings in this set were made from the same kind of mokume, but because of the nature of the forging process, no two mokume pieces will ever be exactly the same. They do have very similar patterns, though, adding a beautiful connection between the two pieces without making them the same.
The mokume in this ring was oxidized to darken the silver sections, and then brushed for a nice matte finish. The bezel setting, however, received a high polish finish, adding another subtle layer of contrast to the design.
You can certainly use this combination if you like, or you could experiment with some alternative finishes as well. Sandblasting is another way to create a slightly different matte surface, and polishing the entire ring is an excellent option as well.
