If the ring doesn’t fit well. Is there a way to fix it?”
We offer free resizing and free cleaning! Maintenance usually takes about 5 weeks.
All maintenance processes are done in Japan. As for the shipping fee, we kindly ask our customers to be responsible for it.
*For customers living in the USA, we kindly ask you to cover the domestic shipping fee to and from your home and our showroom in California.
We can also receive your rings at our stores (US/Japan).

“If we resize, will this affect the Mokume Gane patterns?”
It will not affect the patterns, however, please note that when resizing to a bigger size, we will need to add a single metal plate at the bottom of the ring, so there will be the trace of the plate.
“If we need to resize in the future, how much does resizing cost approximately?”
Most of our rings can be resized in the future; however, some of the designs are difficult to be resized. We will advise you of this while you are selecting your design. And the cost will be different depending on the county where you live. Please contact us with the costs.
“How many times are we allowed to perform the ring resizing?”
It is possible for us to resize as many as it is needed, however, it is not good for the metal material to have too many times due to durability.
Also, I would like to remind the resizing process, when the ring needs to be resized 1 JP or larger size, we may have to insert a solid material. Usually, one of the colors is from the inner ring, or Mokumegane color is chosen.
“Can you engrave our unique wedding bands in the future?”
