Two Tone Mokume Gane Yellow Gold Banded Ring

Regular price $225.00

This is our Two Tone Mokume Gane Yellow Gold Banded Ring. 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 emphasize the 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.

For this ring, the mokume gane band is banded. The banding is made from silver and finished in rhodium. The total width of this ring is 9-10 mm.

Customize the the width and gold finish. Be sure to give our other mokume gane options a look. We have ring without the banding, with different metal combinations, including gold.

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. This is completely safe and natural.  

All items come gift wrapped in our signature keepsake box.
