This beautiful mokume gane ring features white gold, rose gold, and oxidized sterling silver, layered and formed to look like wood and topped with a matte finish. It was created for a client from Bellevue, WA, who wanted something a little less traditional for his ring.
The clients visited our Bellevue showroom, and after some deliberation, chose to go with mokume gane for the groom's ring. He decided on the metal combination as well as the finish, and we went to work to bring it to life. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
Mokume gane is an ancient metalworking technique. It was used in ancient times to create sword handles and sheaths, and it is meant to look like wood. To create this look, different sheets of metal are first layered together. Then, the jeweler uses this block of metal and works it into the pattern the client wants. It is important to note that every ring pattern is completely unique and can only be created to roughly replicate about 80% of the original design. Mokume Jewelry
Men's Ring Options
There are some important specifications for men's rings, and the first is the width. Most men's bands are between 5-9mm, and this particular ring is right in the middle at 7mm. Men’s Wedding Bands Seattle
Another specification is the finish. Most jewelry you see has a polished finish, but many men's styles can have different finishes if requested and the finish can completely change the look. This ring has a matte finish. Other finishes include brushed, hammered, and sandblasted. To see these differences, you can use the filter option on our men's wedding rings page.
Finally, most men's rings are "comfort fit" on the inside, meaning the inside edges are slightly rounded to give a more comfortable feel since the bands are wider than women's.

To reduce color fading, avoid friction against any surface. Avoid wearing your mokume ring during exercise, construction work, gardening, or other abrasive activities. When owning a mokume gane ring with oxidization, avoid chlorine or other similar chemicals as they eat away the patina.
