The uniqueness of MOKUMEGANEYA lies in creating Mokume-gane pattern by combining unique metals that differ from common jewelry. Our unique Mokume-gane patterns are created by using certain combinations of Platinum, White gold, Pink gold, Yellow gold, Green gold or Silver. Through a process of hammering, twisting, and stretching layers of hand piled metals, each customer is guaranteed a unique pattern of Mokume-gane all of their own.Our craftsmen will give every consideration to your wishes and do their utmost to fulfill them in using all of their skill to create your ring.
Mastering Mokume-gane techniques is very difficult because of the complexity of the process in the details, the vagueness of transmitted oral know-how, and an assumption of basic techniques for hammering and metal engraving. We are guardians of a craft that may seem out of tune with a modern society where priority is given only to efficiency and profits. It is our missions to treasure and pass on to the world this wonderful metal craft which Japan is proud of, and to bring it to life brilliantly within the framework of modern society.
