Mokume Gane Ring Band: Silver and Copper, Rose Gold Banded, Thick Width
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 a mill and hand carved to rearrange the patterning of the alloys. After running the billet through the mill it's polished down revealing the new pattern that has been created from this technique. The result beautifully emulates wood grain. Each ring is one of a kind.
This mokume gane is made with two different metal alloys: silver and copper. The ring is patina-ed to emphasize the the warm browns of the copper. The patina makes the metals pop - it gives it luster.
The inside of the ring is reinforced with a layer of 14K rose gold protecting your finger from discoloration through copper contact.
It is also banded in 14K rose gold. The banding is not flush, there's a small lip. It is high polished.
The banding is 2mm on each side. The inside mokume gane width is 5mm. The total width is 9mm. It's about 2mm thick.
They're a low profile flat band for a comfortable fit. Rounded is also an option.
We make mokume gane rings with different metal combinations. Be sure to give them all a look.
The same goes for the banding. A different metal is always a choice, as well as texture.
These are popular wedding rings. Couple's sets are cut them from the same grain - they go together!
