Mokume Gane Ring Band: Silver, Copper, Shibuichi, with Hammered Rose Gold Banding

Regular price $385.00

This is our Mokume Gane Ring Band: Silver, Copper, Shibuichi, with Hammered Rose Gold Banding.

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 through the mill to rearrange the patterning of the alloys. It's then 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 three different metal alloys: silver, copper, and 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 for protecting your finger from discoloration through copper contact.

This ring features 14K rose gold banding with a hammered texture.

The banding is 1mm on each side. The total width of the ring is 6.5mm.

Customize the the width or gold banding. Be sure to give our other mokume gane options a look. We have this 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.
