I especially like the delicate design and the sakura motif.

Mr.Roger & Ms.Rie











Q1. Did you have any anxiety about MOKUMEGANEYA’s rings before you chose our rings?

(Rie) I really liked the concept and the design at my first glance, and did not have any anxiety. I especially like the delicate design and the sakura motif.
The only anxiety was that they were all so beautiful and difficult to choose from. Options to make ‘our own rings’ made our (or my…) choice even harder.
Roger ended up getting me two rings (thank you!).
(Roger) For something as meaningful as engagement and wedding rings, it is hard not to be anxious. Nothing is too beautiful for Rie. However, I wanted them to not only be beautiful,
but to reflect who we are and what we mean for each other. They really did both.
Q2. What was the main reason for ordering your rings from MOKUMEGANEYA?
(Rie) I love sakura.
(Roger) Rie is at the same time very modern and elegant, but also very traditional. So, my idea was to search for something traditionally Japanese for her. In that regard, I found Mokumegane very appealing.
Q3. What do you like most about your ring?
(Rie) Our rings are made from the same, one sheet of metal. I feel we are together and make me feel strong.
(Roger) Apart from the fact that they’re extremely beautiful, they have so much meaning for me: 1) the 400 year-old tradition of Mokumegane makes us feel “grounded”; 2) the blending of metals,
which for me symbolized the blending of both of our cultures; 3) the very Japanese simple elegance of the rings; 4) most importantly, the fact that they’re made out of the same sheet
and split in two symbolized our unity.
Q4. How was the reaction of your friends and relatives about your rings?
(Rie) They love them!! 
(Roger) The rings are so unique! Most of them have never seen anything like that. They’re admiration only grows when we explain the meaning behind them. Thank you so much!

Thank you for your courteous reply.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your rings made by Japanese traditional technique.

May you have a very happy married life !

and was cooking.

      After we ate the dinner, he said

      “ I love you very much.

        I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you.

     Will you marry me? ” 

       to me.

       He put the Engagement ring on my finger.

and the diamond is shining  .

      I've watched the Engagement ring

      for a long long time.

Mr. Mark Bolton and Ms. Lisa Gilby


Q1: Why did you choose MOKUMEGANEYA rings?


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpgLisa found the technique of Mokume gane and said that she would like our rings to use this technique.


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpgMark and I met in 2003 and I had a long distance relationship- I lived in Edinburgh and Mark lived in Tokyo! When I moved to Japan in 2005 we decided to

               get married in Japan.Because our relationship

               had been so much about Mark being in Japan we wanted

               Japanese style rings to reflect this.



I was challenged to find somewhere that would be able to make these rings by Googling. I found the

MOKUMEGANEYA website and we booked

               an appointment.


Q2: Please tell us your experience when you came to MOKUMAGANEYA

        the first time to decide the design of your rings


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpgWe visited Mokumeganeya by appointment in their old location and we spent lots of time looking at different designs and thinking about metals and shapes and

               diamonds and mounts.  We really appreciated

                having an English-speaker come in specially to help us.


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpg I wanted a very simple but good quality diamond for the engagement ring and there was a good selection on offer.  Overall, it was a great experience!


Q3: What do you like most on your rings?


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpgFor my ring, I really like the "wood grain" like quality that the precious metals create.  It is much more interesting than a "flat" Gold or platinum ring. I also like the way

               the ring develops over time - I wear my wedding

               ring all the time - 24/7 and 365 days.

               I also like that Lisa's rings - wedding and engagement -

               are the same design and sit well together.


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpgI like the design of the Mokume gane very much I like that the rings are very easy and comfortable to wear.  I like that the setting of the diamond is very strong and very simple -

               it doesn`t get caught on my clothes.


Q4: What did you think when you saw your rings for the first time?


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpgDelighted with the beauty of the rings, I think this was the first time I had commissioned original work and therefore there was an element of pleasure from seeing

               ideas realized in physical form.


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpg We were absolutely delighted with them! I have commissioned jewellery in the past and not always been satisfied - this exceeded all expectations!


Q5: How was the reaction of your friends and relatives about your wedding rings


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpgFriends notice that the rings are different and often ask what they are made from, or where we obtained then. 

 We enjoy telling the story both of our relationship and the

                commissioning of our rings


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpg The response was very positive - people always enjoy the story of them and like the use of traditional techniques - and they love how they look as well!


Q6: Please let us know something of your life


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_3.jpgWe continue to live in Tokyo, and the intention is that we will stay in Japan for the next two or three years.


mokumeganeya_customer_0003_2.jpg When we do leave Japan, we will have our rings as a memory of this time.

In the current financial climate I'm glad to be in Tokyo

               performing an interesting and challenging role

                at work and like the many benefits of living here.
