(item # 102200)
This exquisite women’s wedding band features a lovely mokume gane pattern bordered on either side by a delicate milgrain. It was created as part of a custom wedding set for a client from Waleska, GA that also included the engagement ring, #102199, and the men’s wedding band, #102201. Although they were unable to come visit us in our Bellevue, WA showroom, our use of the latest 3D modeling technology allowed us to create the perfect set of rings for these clients, and they were completely satisfied with the result.
The lovely organic patterns in this ring reminiscent of wood grain are produced by forging a combination of metals using the mokume gane technique. This is a practice that originated in Japan in the 1700s, where it was initially used to make decorative handles and sheaths for samurai swords.
The creation of mokume gane jewelry is a skill that takes a great deal of practice and experience to master, and our artisans have perfected the technique. The mokume in this ring is made from a combination of 14k white gold, palladium, and sterling silver, and different combinations of metals will result in different color combinations.
Because of the way mokume jewelry is made, no two pieces will ever be exactly alike. However, since the same batch of mokume was used to make all of the rings in this wedding set, they display very similar designs and complement each other nicely.
To give a sense of completion to this piece, as well as a touch of vintage flare, we included a delicate milgrain lining both edges of the mokume inlay. This ties in with the milgrain used in the matching engagement ring as well, giving the set a feeling of continuity.
Custom Wedding Sets
Having all of the rings in your wedding set made together at the same time is the best way to ensure their detailing matches exactly. That’s especially true if you want to incorporate something like mokume gane into the designs, as the patterns will match much more closely if each piece is made from the same batch.
