Mokume Gane Inlay
The middle third of this band is made up of a combination of 14k palladium white gold, 14k rose gold, and sterling silver. In order to create the gorgeous, organic patterns you see here, these three metals were layered together in thin sheets and then forged using a particular technique that was originally developed in Japan long ago. Mokume Jewelry
The method for creating these mokume gane pieces is especially difficult to master, and our expert artisans have perfected it, as you can see from this piece. The flowing, organic patterns typical of mokume gane are never identical from one piece to the next, although if you find a design you like, we can use the same process to make yours, and you can expect about an 80% pattern match.
Finish and Metal Options
Bordering the mokume gane section on either side are wide palladium rails that fill out the remainder of the 7mm wide band. These slope down gently towards the edges, giving the ring a softer, slightly rounded look.
Both the mokume gane section and the palladium rails feature a brushed finish as well, and the matte surface this creates helps bring out the warmth and complex tones of the metals. If you wanted to make a clearer distinction between the two different sections, you might consider using contrasting finishes on the mokume and the rails.
You could also choose a different metal for the rails, with white or rose gold both offering a link to the mokume section along with some more classical overtones. The width of the band is another element you may want to adjust to move this piece more inline with your personal tastes. Men’s wedding rings generally run between 6mm and 9mm wide, and the best way to determine exactly what you prefer is to go try on some different pieces, either in our showroom or at your local jeweler.
