Thinking Beyond Silver, Gold and Platinum Rings

There is no doubt that choosing the ideal ring can be an overwhelming task. Chances are you're searching for something unique whatever the occasion or reason for the purchase. Certainly there are many ways to choose a special ring, and why not consider stepping outside the silver, gold, and platinum precious metal options? Mokume Gane Rings are an ideal way to separate your ring from the rest.

Makume-gane has an amazing, unparalleled history, tracing its roots to 17th century Japanese weaponry. Historically used to create elaborate detail on swords, craftsman expanded into jewelry when the demand for ornamental weaponry declined. Mokume Gane can involve a variety of metals including platinum, gold, silver, titanium bronze and brass. The visual effect is rich and textured and unique. The mesmerizing looks results from metals combining without a complete melting.

For something with an appearance slightly more traditional, you should consider the remarkable look of Damascus Rings. A diffusion bonding of 304L and 316L stainless steel creates a unique look that is absolutely corrosion-resistant. A high-quality Damascus ring takes several weeks to create, a labor-intensive process that produces an exceptional piece of craftsmanship. Damascus rings are a great fit for those who want an especially durable ring but are still looking for something special and elegant.

Another unique metal to consider for your ring is meteorite. Meteorite rings are made when skilled artisans form solid pieces of nickel iron meteorite into rings. Meteorite rings contain a large amount of nickle which is what gives it it's very unusual appearance.

Meteorite rings are a fantastic conversation piece. People are always interested to hear about something made from materials "out of this world."r There is something inherently interesting about a precious metal that doesn’t originate on earth.

Choosing the perfect ring can be stressful, but it certainly need not be. By choosing a ring with a unique precious metal, you can give something attractive and distinctive. Look to the special techniques and metals of meteorite, damascus steel and mokume for a ring that will delight and be treasured for years to come.
