This striking men’s wedding ring features a mokume gane inlay in an unplated, squared white gold band with diamond accents. It was created for a client from Mercer Island, WA, and we also made his fiancee’s bridal set at the same time. He began the custom design process by coming in to our Bellevue, WA showroom personally, and then we finalized the details of his design through our online workroom.
The mokume gane that fills the center section of this ring was made with a mix of 14k rose gold, 14k white gold, and sterling silver. It was also oxidized and etched to get the dramatic color contrasts and definitive lines seen here.
The technique used to make mokume gane jewelry was developed in Japan hundreds of years ago, and it requires a significant amount of experience and still to master. It involves layering several different types of metal together and then forging them in a particular way in order to produce wonderful organic patterns like what you see in this piece.
Because of this special production process, no two mokume pieces will ever be exactly the same, even if they’re made up of the same combination of metals. And you can actually create many different looks and styles by choosing different metals or finishes for your mokume piece.
The client tried on a variety of rings in our showroom and eventually settled on the squared type of shank used here. It gives the ring a decidedly masculine look, as well as adding some contemporary flair, and that’s enhanced by the diamond accents set into all four corners on both fronts of the ring.
If you’re interested in adjusting this design to suit your own personal style, or if you’d like to take some elements from this ring and use them as a base to create a brand new piece, we can help. Our experts will go over all of the options with you in terms of style and materials until we know exactly what you want your ring to look like.
Next, we’ll create highly-detailed CAD proofs of your design so that you can examine and critique it before we send it off for production. We’re committed to making sure you get exactly the piece you’ve always dreamed of, and that means we’ll revise our design as many times as necessary until you tell us it’s perfect in every way.
