Mokume Gane Inlay
The middle section of this ring is made up of a combination of 14k rose gold, 14k palladium white gold and sterling silver. These three metals have been forged together using the mokume gane technique, and that’s what led to the creation of the swirling organic patterns they exhibit. The sterling silver has also been oxidized to produce a black antiquing effect that heightens the contrast and helps to highlight the intricate details of the design. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
This ring is 8mm wide, and it’s made of unplated 14k white gold. The mokume gane inlay dominates the top surface, running all the way around the ring and extending nearly to the edges on each side. Narrow white gold rails frame the mokume section, however, and these bring a nice balance and finished feel to the piece, while also adding another level of contrast to the design.
The inlay is separated from the rails by a narrow groove, and the entire surface is brushed to create a matte effect. This helps highlight the contrast relationship between the various metals used in the piece, and it adds to the sleek elegance of the design as well. Mokume Jewelry
If you’re interested in modifying this design, you could experiment with using a combination of finishes to make the separation between the sections more pronounced. For instance, you could keep the brushed finish on the center section while switching to a high polish on the rails, or vice versa. You may also want to choose a different combination of metals for the mokume gane section, and our experts will show you examples of different combinations to help you make the right choices to produce the look you’re after.
