Three Tone Copper, Silver, Shibuichi Mokume Gane Ring with Silver Birch Banding

Regular price $245.00

This is our Three Tone Copper, Silver, Shibuichi Mokume Gane Ring with Silver Birch Banding.

This ring features mokume gane. 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 rolling mill to rearrange the patterning of the alloys. At this point, polishing down reveals 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, 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.

This ring is banded with silver. The silver banding is textured to resemble the bark of birch trees. This gives the mokume gane an earthy framing that perfectly compliments the wood grain.

The ring is 8mm thick. The mokume gane is 5mm and the birch banding is 1.5 each.

Customize this design with a different version of our mokume gane or texture on the banding. Give our different mokume gane options a look to make sure you're getting the ring that best fits you.

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.
