(item # 103985)
This striking men’s wedding ring features a mokume gane pattern that continues all the way around the squared band, and that’s accented with a brushed finish. It was created for a client from Renton, WA, who visited our Bellevue, WA showroom initially to begin the custom design process.
On this visit, he found a ring that he liked, and so we worked with him to find the best combination of materials to achieve the perfect look. He communicated with our team through the online workroom we set up to manage his project throughout the process, and we only turned things over to our expert artisans to begin production once we’d received his explicit approval to do so. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
The main feature of this ring is the organic pattern of the mokume gane that forms the body of the piece. These patterns are the result of the particular way the mokume gane is made, and that involves layering thin sheets of the chosen metals together and then forging them in a specific way. The mokume in this ring is made from a combination of palladium white gold and sterling silver.
This technique was developed in Japan several hundred years ago, and it was originally used to make decorative hilts and sheaths for samurai swords. Its recent expansion into the world of fine custom jewelry, however, provides you with many options for how to integrate it into your piece, and due to the nature of the forging process, no two mokume gane pieces will ever exhibit exactly the same pattern.

Square Band Design and Customization Options
The band itself is 8mm wide, and it’s squared, with four corners and sides that curve out very slightly. This produces a more masculine and substantial look, and one way to customize the piece would be to adjust the width of the band to whatever’s most comfortable for you. You could also experiment with different combinations of metals for the mokume, and you may find you prefer a polished or sandblasted finish in place of the brushed used here.
