This stylish men’s wedding ring features a palladium base with step edge rails that frame a mokume gane center band. It was originally created for a couple from Seattle, WA, who established the basic design they wanted during their initial consultation in our Bellevue, WA showroom. We then communicated with them online to finalize the details of the type of metals and pattern they wanted for the mokume section of the piece.
The center band of this ring is made with a combination of 14k palladium white gold and sterling silver. These have been blended and forged using the mokume gane technique and then brushed to achieve a matte finish. The mokume gane method was developed in Japan several hundred years ago, and it requires a great deal of skill and precision to execute correctly.
Fortunately, our artisans have a great deal of experience working with these types of pieces, and they are able to create mokume gane jewelry in all styles and with a wide variety of metal combinations. While this ring only uses two metals in the mokume section, it’s possible to use up to four, and there are quite a few different patterns you can choose from as well.
Step Edge Design
Step edge polished palladium rails run along both sides of the mokume section all the way around the band. The step edge design means that the rails are slightly lower than the mokume, and that helps to clearly mark the division between the two sections. It also gives the ring a nice shape with a bit of complexity to it, and the contrasting finishes in the different areas emphasizes this design element as well.
If you like this general design but want to learn how you can put your personal mark on the piece, our experts are here to help. There are many possibilities for customizing a ring like this, including using different metal combinations in the mokume, adjusting the types of finishes used on the various sections, and using a different type of metal for the base. But no matter what you choose or what style you’re going for, our custom design process is built to ensure the piece we make for you is exactly what you’ve always wanted.
