Mokume Gane Inlay, Mens or Womens Titanium Ring, Wedding Band
This ring has no edges. The Mokume is a combination of Sterling Silver and Copper. A darker patina can be applied (just ask for it).
Mokume-gane is a mixed-metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns. Translating as "wood-grain metal", the name was borrowed from one type of pattern created in the forging of swords and other edged weapons.
The traditional components were relatively soft metallic elements and alloys - gold, copper, silver, shakudo, shibuichi, and kuromido - which would form liquid phase diffusion bonds with one another without completely melting. After the original metal sheets were stacked and carefully heated, the solid billet of simple stripes could be forged and carved to increase the pattern's complexity. To achieve a successful lamination using the traditional process required a highly skilled smith with a great deal of experience.
All rings are custom made to order.
Available Sizes : 4 to 16, including 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes Available Widths: 4mm to 10mm

The nature of wood is such that it will break down with enough exposure to water. It is recommend you avoid getting your wood rings wet. Moisture may cause certain wood types to color your skin and may change the wood color.
Titanium rings inlaid with wood or stone have a joint that is invisible when it is on the finger. The joint is on the inside of the ring. The strength of these rings are never compromised and are as strong as any other ring.
DINOSAUR BONE COLORS
Dinosaur Bone is scarce therefore Dinosaur Bone colors can not be guaranteed as pictured when your ring is made.
RING ARMOR Waterproofing Service
My new RING ARMOR process will WATERPROOF, STRENGTHEN and PROTECT wood and antler from Water, UV rays, Nicks and Scratches. Ring Armor can only be applied to WOOD and ANTLER.
After many requests I have started a new process that will protect your ring. You never have to take them off, not even when you shower, bath, swim, wash hands, work in the garden, etc. With Ring Armor the ring will be tough as nails, very strong and durable.
It is well known than ANY wood ring, made by ANY jeweler, that are NOT waterproofed, will eventually break if it gets wet, it causes the wood to swell up and then it breaks.
Wood knocked or bashed the right way will easily break without Ring Armor.
I can apply my Ring Armor Water Proofing treatment to ANY existing ring, EVEN those made by other jewelers.
The ring needs no maintenance after the Ring Armor treatment. If dirty, wipe it down with a damp soapy cloth. Rinsed the cloth with plain water so all soap has been removed, wipe down the ring and then dry the ring.
It is an expensive product to purchase, the treatment takes about a day and a bit to apply on your ring.
I have done many tests with this treatment before I started using it. It is extremely strong.
Ring Armor is an extra cost UNLESS the listing mentions that the ring is Waterproof then the cost of the Ring Armor has already been added to the final price. The cost of Ring Armor is $75. Let me know during checkout and I will send you a separate PayPal invoice.
The Ring Armor coating can get damaged if it is hit or banged on any object that can crack or weaken the coating, in which case the waterproofing has been breached and will not protect it any longer.
If the Ring Armor gets damaged I will redo it for $15 (touch-up).
Type: Lustrous precious metal, valued for its beauty.
Sterling: .925 sterling silver.
Durability: Pure silver is relatively soft, very malleable, and easily damaged so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The silver we use consists of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of alloy.
Finish: Polish, bright and sparkling.
Meteorites are formed as they travel through space and millions of years later they may land on earth. They are never perfect so please expect that there may be imperfections in the meteorite.
Care must be taken to keep meteorite away from chemicals (chlorine, bleach, swimming pools, etc.) especially anything with an acid in it.
You can use toothpaste at any time to clean the surface of the meteorite. Get yourself some 90% alcohol from the pharmacy and soak it for about 10 minutes in a cup to drive away any moisture when needed. Remove the ring and dispose of the alcohol in an acceptable way. Wipe down the ring with a paper towel and set it down to dry. The alcohol will evaporate.
Meteorite rings can be re-etched at any time. Contact me if you want it done.
