Marriage is the eternal union of two souls—souls who are nonetheless vibrant and alive now on this mortal plane of existence. Engagement and wedding bands often feature precious metals and nigh indestructible diamond, perfectly suited to the symbolism of eternity. But how can one capture the vibrancy and organic growth that characterizes a marriage? Enter mokume gane.
Forged between precious metals compressed upon the very cusp of alloying, mokume gane represents the best of both worlds between the immortal durability of metal and the delicate vitality of nature. Translated literally from Japanese, this “wood-grain metal” is undeniably organic in appearance. Moreover, because every billet is forged and patterned under slightly different conditions, the swirling concentric patterns of mokume are irreplicable and entirely unique. Just like every living being on earth: from mighty oak to delicate wildflower—or two sweethearts who found each other against the odds.
With eight flavors—unique combinations of gold alloys, sterling silver, and platinum—you will have abundant room to choose the precious metal pallet that best suits your sensibility. Moreover, with our overflowing design portfolio—and infinite possibilities afforded by our custom design process—your chosen mokume gane can be incorporated into the exact engagement ring or wedding band that speaks to you. Anything from a simple band of mokume gane lined by precious metal—which allows the mokume to speak for itself—to extravagant and show-stopping luxury rings.
