Anatomy Of A Mokume Ring

Mokume Gane is the world where artistry and craftsmanship collide to create stunning engagement rings and wedding bands. The captivating anatomy of these remarkable pieces consists of two essential components: the mesmerizing mokume gane and the alluring precious metal liner. Prepare yourself for a delightful exploration of colors, materials, and design possibilities!

Liner Metal Colors
Our mokume is inlaid in the precious metal liner of your choosing. The liner encompasses that area of the ring touching the finger, the sides (rails), and, if you are creating an engagement ring, the setting itself. With many of our mokume engagement rings, the setting can be crafted in a different metal from the band, adding an extra touch of allure. Since the mokume is the main attraction, a liner may either compliment or contrast the mokume, allowing you to create a harmonious symphony of colors.

Finish & Etch

Matte Finish Wedding Ring
Our matte finish is accomplished by masking all the surfaces of the ring except for the mokume, and bead blasting the mokume with fine glass beads. This treatment results in a satin finish that absorbs light and helps the different colors of the mokume become apparent. It is recommended to accentuate mokume pattern. As with any finish, the bead blasted surface is extremely superficial and will show signs of wear. The ring will eventually take on a uniformly worn look.

High Polish

High Polish Wedding Band
A high polish finish is a highly reflective mirror like surface that reflects the light. Because the mokume is bouncing the light back at you, the individual colors in the mokume are less apparent, and the mokume tends to appear uniform in color. In different lights, the individual colors may become more visible to the wearer. As with any finish, a high polish finish is extremely superficial and will show signs of wear. The ring will eventually take on a uniformly worn look, at which time the different colors will become more apparent. The high polish finish is easy to refresh with a polishing cloth or cream.
