All mokume gane jewelry items are available in any size, width, profile, pattern, metal combination and finish. Select a stone from our inventory, have us find something special or provide your own stone for setting. All rings are made individually from start to finish and so will be completely custom. Please note that all mokume patterns are unique and so will vary slightly from those pictured.Mokume gane is an ancient metalworking technique in which layers of precious metal are alloyed together with heat and pressure then twisted, carved and forged to create beautiful organic patterns. The metals I use include gold, silver, copper, platinum and palladium. Mokume Gane translates from Japanese as "wood eye metal" which reflects the wood grain patterning admired by the Japanese craftsmen. This rare metal lamination process is similar to damascus and was developed and used by Japanese swordsmiths in the 17th century for the adornment of samurai swords.
