Mokume Gane Center
The swirling, organic pattern that runs down the middle of this piece all the way around the band is the result of the mokume gane forging process. The technique used to make these types of designs was originally developed hundreds of years ago in Japan, and it involves layering thin sheets of two or more different types of metal together and then combining them in a particular way.
The nature of this process also ensures that no two mokume gane pieces will ever be exactly alike, although if you see a pattern that you prefer, we can use the same technique in making your piece with an expected 80% pattern match. The mokume section of this ring is made from a 14k white gold and shakudo, which is an alloy of gold and copper. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
Band Design and Customization Options
Running alongside the mokume inlay are unplated white gold rails, and the inner portion of the ring is made from the same material as well. The slightly domed top of the band is brushed to create a matte surface that complements the soft tones of the metals nicely.
Customizing this ring may involve using a different combination of metals for the mokume gane section, or it might mean changing the width of the band. This piece is 6mm wide, which is on the narrow end of the normal range for a men’s ring. Adjusting this to whatever’s most comfortable for you will necessarily change the overall appearance of the band as well, and you can decide if you’d like to keep the same proportions between the mokume section and the rails or if you’d like to adjust those as well.
