This stylish men’s wedding ring features a mokume gane inlay running around the middle of an unplated white gold band, with diamond, sapphire, tourmaline and aquamarine accents on the ring fronts. It was created for a client from West Linn, OR, who initially visited our Bellevue, WA showroom personally to view some inspiration pieces. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
He found several rings that he wanted to borrow from in creating a unique design, and we used these as a basis for the CAD models we put together. He was happy with the images we shared online, and after confirming all the details, gave his approval for us to move into production.
Mokume Gane Inlay
The middle section of this ring is dominated by a mokume gane inlay that runs all the way around the band. It’s made of 14k palladium white gold and sterling silver, and it’s based on the pattern in a mokume piece the client found in our showcase. Mokume Jewelry
The technique used to create the elegant and organic patterns seen in mokume pieces was developed several hundred years ago in Japan. It involves layering thin sheets of the different metals together and then fusing them in a particular way. Due to the nature of this process, no two mokume pieces will ever be exactly the same, but we can use the same technique to generate about an 80% pattern match to an inspiration piece.

Band Design and Diamond Accents
Unplated white gold rails frame the mokume section, and their soft champagne color helps to draw out the warm tones of the white gold in the mokume. To make the separation between the rails and inlay more clear, however, we also applied contrasting finishes, with the center sandblasted and the rails polished.
The overall shape of the band is square, with the round inner surface domed to create a comfort fit. On one ring front, round diamonds are flush set in each corner, and on the other, an aquamarine, a diamond, a pink tourmaline, and a blue sapphire are flush set in the same positions. Our original design had diamonds on both sides, but the client wanted to add a more personal touch, and so the second side includes his birthstone as well as those of his wife and two children.
