Men's Grooved Edge Acid Finish Damascus Steel Ring
- Made in USA:
Back to the future.
A tradition lost for centuries gets an edgy reboot and returns with a vengeance in the hypnotic style of this Grooved Edge Ring.
The center of this ring features a conventional dome profile, but either side is flattened down to create two crisp, grooved edges. The completed piece is then submersed in an acid bath to finish the ring. The result? An interesting shape that highlights the contrasting differences between the fused steels. This is jewelry for the 21st century: uncompromising, relentless, thought-provoking, and stylish.
We are firm believers that the ring should fit the wearer, and never the other way around, and it all starts when you choose a size for your ring. All standard sizes are available, and we can also produce this ring in 1/4 sizes or with other custom modifications upon request. Optional personalized engraving is available on the inside diameter of the band as an add-on feature. Purchase of this item includes free ground shipping to anywhere in the USA.
Please note: The acid finish shown here appears darker in this image. The actual color of this ring may vary slightly, with more of a dark, flat gray against lighter contrasts.
More about this design:
Welding steel is a method of metalworking that once produced some of the finest and most sought-after blades and weapons in the world. Using a blend of steels that were shipped primarily from southern India, bladesmiths in Syria were able to create bars of two or more steels that had been pattern welded together. These bars could then be carved into objects with fantastic rippling patterns, just like those seen on this ring.
Over the centuries, the secret to producing the Wootz steel used in welded items was lost, and without the right steel no blacksmith could produce jewelry or weapons on par with what had been made before. The process, itself a closely guarded secret, died out with these ancient metalsmiths. Recently, researchers and engineers have discovered how to recreate the properties of Wootz steel and welded-style pieces are once again on the market.
