(item # 101165)
This stylish men’s wedding ring features a mokume gane pattern that runs all the way around the band, and a sandblasted finish. It was created for a client from Granite Falls, WA, who had been shopping online for mokume gane rings for some time before he found this pattern on our site and fell in love with it.
While we were working on the ring, the client was actually in India planning his wedding, and so we communicated with him primarily online and over the phone. We also worked with his mother, who lives locally and so was able to visit our Bellevue showroom in person. We dealt with all concerns as they came up throughout the design process, and in the end he and his family were very happy with the ring we produced. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
The beautiful swirling patterns in this ring are a result of the mokume gane production process, which involves layering several different types of metals, twisting them, and then forging them together. The technique was developed several hundred years ago in Japan, and it takes significant skill and experience to execute properly.
The metals in this ring are 14k rose gold, palladium, and sterling silver, and it was both the color combination and the swirling pattern that the client liked when he found the model ring on our site. While the nature of the mokume forging process dictates that no two pieces will ever come out exactly the same, we can create a 70%-80% pattern match by combining the metals in the same way in a new piece.

Finish and Metal Options
Of course, if you would like a different color combination, you can select different metals for your ring. For instance, you could work in some yellow or white gold, or you could choose to add an antique oxidizing effect, which turns the silver a much darker color and can really help the patterns stand out.
This ring features a sandblasted finish, but there are other options in this area as well. For instance, you could use a hammered finish to bring a more pronounced texture to the ring, or you could go for the shiny, high polish option.
