May 24, 2024 11:00 AM
Hello! This is Risa from the Japan team at MOKUMEGANEYA.
 
 
I feel the weather in Japan is warmer and warmer,
And the summer is coming up very soon!
 
 
Today, I am introducing the engravings that can be made to order on engagement rings and wedding bands.
At MOKUMEGANEYA, you can engrave your names and anniversaries on your engagement rings and wedding bands.
You can choose not only alphabets, but also Hiragana and Kanji.

By adding your names in Kanji, you can feel Japanese atmosphere more.
 
 
We also have many marks available!
Many of our clients choose to have marks related to their memories.

At Mokumeganeya, one of the most popular engravings is “paired marks”!
 
 
You can choose your favorite mark and share it in your wedding bands.
This mark will help you realize that the two of your wedding bands are connected.
 
 
In addition, you can also add hand-drawn illustrations!

You can draw your memorable illustration and engrave it in the ring as is.
 
It must make your wedding bands more special!
 
 
 
Since all of the engagement rings and wedding bands are made to order, the engravings can be personalized to both of you.
If you have any questions, such as “I want to pay special attention to the engraving!” or “I want to put a mark like this…”.

Sakura Engagement ring ~Japanese engagement ring~

March 1, 2024 11:00 AM

Hello, This is the Japanese team!


In Japan, some of the early-flowering species of sakura are in bloom!

We found "Tamanawa Sakura/玉縄桜" in Kamakura and took a picture! Sakura is special to us and lets us know that it is spring!

Speaking of Sakura, we have a diamond which has a sakura cutting, "Sakura Diamond"!

It is a special diamond with "cherry blossoms" floating on it with the world's best cutting technology. 
Sakura diamond is cut by skillful diamond cutters,1.5 more facets compared to round brilliant cut diamonds. 
And this makes the Sakura diamond brilliant finer!

The lovely Sakura diamonds and the Mokume-gane ring made with traditional techniques create a wonderful harmony.

The ring with a Sakura diamond, you give your pertner the flower bloom forever.
That is such a romantic, isn't that? :)

Also, our rings has a motif of Sakura.

Sharing-Ceremony ~Japanese wedding rings~

October 20, 2023 11:00 AM

Hello, This is Shiho!

In Japan, we feel the weather is getting colder in the mornings and evenings.
Also, "金木犀 Kinmokusei" (Osmanthus/Fragrant Olive) are blooming and giving off sweet sense!
image_2023_10_19.png
 
 
Today I would like to introduce the "Sharing Ceremony"!
The ring sharing ceremony is a special process that you can "join" in the ring-making process, and it is only possible in Japan.
 
Ceremony photo.jpg
We can prepare the connected rings and have the sharing ceremony in Japan if you place an order before you come!
 
Tsunagaru-katachi (4 pictures).jpg
We will take pictures as you have the ceremony and we will gift them!
 
Also, we have customers who visit us with their friends or family in memory of visiting Japan.
That would be a very special memory!


The connected rings are middle of the crafting process, so It takes 2-4 weeks to complete the ring after your sharing ceremony.
So, If you can visit our store for the ceremony as soon as possible, we might be able to complete the rings and you can pick them up on the last day of your stay in Japan!

Japanese engagement ring

April 7, 2023 11:00 AM

Hi, This is Shiho.

How are you doing?

It is getting warmer and warmer, spring is almost here in Japan!

 

Have you ever heard "Ohanami"?

It is one of the Japanese cultural, the way to enjoy the Sakura as you eat, drink, and talk with your friends and family under the Sakura tree.

I would say it is like a picnic:)

You should do "Ohanami" if you have opportunity to come visit to Japan in the Sakura season!

 

 

This time, I would like to introduce the Sakura diamond!

As for the centere diamond of the engagementring, we have a Sakura diamond and a Round Brilliant cut diamond.

Sakura diamond.png

State of the art cutting technology allows for this special diamond to house a beautiful Sakura Flower in its center.
Geometric, technological and artistic skill combine to create this wondrous stone!

 

The delicate shapes needed to bring about this beautiful flower require more than 1.5 times the cuts of a traditional round brilliant.

This makes the stones sparkle even more brilliantly.

There are just a few diamond cutters who can create this special diamond.

That would be so romantic if you propose to your partner with this diamond which blooms Sakura forever:)
