Two Tone Mokume Gane His and Her Band
Mokume Gane is Japanese for wood grain metal. It's made by fusing many sheets of your metal choices with heat to form a billet, the combined alloys. The billet is then reshaped with force to rearrange the patterning of the alloys. After applying force the billet is polished down revealing the new pattern that has been created from this technique. The result beautifully emulates wood grain.
This mokume gane is made with two different metal alloys: silver and copper. The ring is patina-ed to deepen the warm browns of copper. The inside of the ring is reinforced with a layer of silver that we plate with a platinum to prevent tarnishing, protecting your finger from discoloration through copper contact.
These rings are cut from the same grain. The patterns line up - they're meant to be together. The width of his ring is 7mm. The width of her ring is 4mm. Customize the the width and gold finish.
Each ring is handmade: hand fabricated, sized, soldered, and hand finished in my one-woman home studio shop.
Made to order- please give exact ring size!
Please note that the patina may change depending on your body chemistry and your environment. The copper's color may vary like that of a penny, from deep brown to bright orange. This is completely safe and natural.
