Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese metalworking technique which means “wood-grain metal”. The process involves layering thin sheets of metal and exposing them to heat and pressure which causes the layers to fuse rather than melt. Forging, twisting, cutting, or otherwise manipulating the layered material can produce many different organic looking patterns. The end result is the unique and distinctive layered pattern in the metal that mimics the grains on wood. Each mokume gane ring features unique patterns, like the banding of a tree.
By incorporating this old Japanese method into our jewelry collections, we can produce truly original pieces. Depending on your personal preferences, we can incorporate different metals to create different hues and patterns that give personality to every piece. From engagement rings and wedding bands to beautiful family heirlooms, mokume gane is always stunning and truly original in appearance.
