This elegant men’s wedding ring features an organic mokume gane pattern that continues all the way around the band and that’s accented by contrasting brushed and hammered finishes. It’s a wonderful piece to use as inspiration when you’re starting to think about the direction you want to take your own custom design, and our experts will help you determine precisely how to modify it to make it your own. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
You can begin this process by reaching out to us online, or by visiting one of our showrooms, which are located in Bellevue, WA and Seattle, WA, in person. We’ll take your ideas and turn them into highly-detailed digital models that we’ll share with you through the online workroom we set up to manage your project. Only once you’re completely satisfied with these models will we turn things over to our expert artisans to begin production.
This ring is made up of a combination of 14k rose gold, 14k palladium white gold and sterling silver, all three of which are mixed together using the special mokume gane technique. This method was developed several hundred years ago in Japan for use in sheaths and handles for samurai swords, and it was later adapted for other uses, including in fine jewelry.
To make a ring like this, our artisans layer thin sheets of the selected metals together and then forge them in a particular way to produce the swirling, organic patterns seen here. Due to the nature of this process, no two mokume gane pieces will ever be exactly the same, although we can use the same technique to create about an 80% pattern match if you find a design you particularly like. Mokume Jewelry
The darkest sections of this ring are made of sterling silver that’s been oxidized to produce the black antique look. This adds definition and contrast to the design, and this effect is amplified by the use of contrasting hammered and brushed finishes on the top of the band. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
The hammered finish is what gives the top of the ring its irregular surface, and this works well with the organic nature of the mokume design to create a consistent feel for the ring. On top of the hammered finish, the ring is also brushed to produce a matte effect.
