Three Tone Mokume Gane Men's Ring Band

Regular price $140.00
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 ring is made with three different metal alloys: silver, copper, Shibuichi. The ring is patina-ed to emphasize the black-grey tone of the shibuichi and warm browns of the 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.

Made to order- please give exact ring size!

Each ring is handmade: hand fabricated, sized, soldered, and hand finished in my one-woman home studio shop.

Please note that the patina may change depending on your body chemistry and your environment. This is completely safe and natural.  

All items come gift wrapped in our signature keepsake box.
