Mokume Gane Inlay
The top surface of this band is dominated by a mokume gane inlay made from 18k yellow gold, 14k palladium white gold, and sterling silver. These metals were oxidized to produce the darker coloring for the silver that helps clarify the patterns within the inlay, and as part of the custom design process, you can choose a different combination of metals to get exactly the look you’re after.
The process of producing mokume gane involves layering thin sheets of the various metals together and then forging them in a particular way. The result of that is the flowing, organic patterns seen in this piece, and because of the way it’s made, no two mokume pieces will ever be exactly the same. Mokume Jewelry
Zirconium Band Design
The band of this ring is 8.5mm wide and made of blackened zirconium. This is an extremely hard but light metal, and it’s shatter-proof unlike tungsten, which is similar in appearance. The band is squared, with sides that curve out gently, and softly-pointed corners. The inner margin of the ring is smooth and round, however, with a slightly domed surface that produces a comfort fit. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
On the top of the ring, the only zirconium visible is what makes up the step rails that frame the mokume inlay. The inner margin of these lies at the level just above the inlay, and the rails take a step down as they move away from the center. That angular design for the rails works well with the squared shape of the band to produce a modern and masculine look.
