Mokume Gane Wedding Rings by Michael DanielWhat is Mokume Gane?
Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese jewelry technique that creates beautifully patterned wedding rings and jewelry. Developed in the 17th Century in Japan by Denbei Shoami, it was used to decorate these ancient Japanese swords. Mokume Gane (moh’-coo-may gah’-neh) means ‘wood grain’ in Japanese.
Michael Daniel's proprietary techniques give their wedding bands bold colors and patterns.
How Michael Daniel’s Mokume Gane wedding rings are made:
- 18 karat gold is alloyed, giving a full spectrum of colors
- The metals are repeatedly layered into a stack and fused
