Men's Black Zirconium Ring with Acid Finish Damascus Steel Inlay
Take a shot in the dark.
Here's a secret: We love it when things get a little crazy and you end up with a ring that combines multiple metals and styles into a single, indomitable masterpiece. This sleek, classic ring takes two of our favorite materials and some of our favorite finishing techniques to create a finished product that is dark, dangerous, and dashing.
Let's begin with the base of the band. We started with a 9mm-wide piece of material, which gives the ring an overall inky darkness that is as intense as it is cool. Then, we dropped down the center of the ring to accommodate a broad, 5mm-wide inlay of steel. The steel shows off a gorgeous grain pattern while serving as a nice counterpoint to the smooth darkness of the base. We also acid-etched the steel to enhance the grain and to give the ring a bit of a ragged, high-energy edge.
Keep in mind that everything about this ring is custom. We can create yours in almost any whole or half size and we can make tons of modifications upon request. Want a different width for the ring or the inlay? Want to talk about different materials? No problem. Tell us what you had in mind, and we'll work with you to make it happen. Optional personalized engraving is available on the inside of the band as an add-on feature. Purchase of this ring includes free ground shipping to anywhere in the USA, so be sure to take advantage of it.
More about this design:
There are two forces at work in this piece: The first is the material, which began its life as a flat, silvery-gray metal that sort of looks like dulled titanium. How did we get it dark? We superheated the metal to create the dark surface coating you see here. The surface is incredibly durable and has a consistency similar to hard ceramic.
The second force, of course, is the high quality steel. Our steel is the product of a welding process that combines two high-quality steels into a single incredibly strong piece. The grain structure visible in the inlay represents where the two steels were folded together during welding. The patterns in these inlays will never repeat, and each ring is totally unique. First developed in the Middle East and Asia centuries ago, welded steel is one of the most enduring metalworking traditions in history.
Please note: The acid finish shown here appears darker in this image than it will look under most lighting conditions. The actual color of this ring may vary slightly, with more of a dark, flat gray against lighter contrasts. Due to the quality of the materials used in this ring, there will be a fee for rings sized 13 and higher. This will be shown at checkout.
