Mokume Gane is an art form descended from a time when members of the Samurai class still served the feudal warlords who once ruled Japan. Originally used to make fittings for katana blades and ornamental swords intended for the ruling elite, it's a traditional style of metalworking that requires surpassing skill, control, and timing. For hundreds of years the method was understood by only a few, and it was mastered by even fewer. To create the Shakudo jewelry at Titanium-Buzz, we've employed some of the best artisans in the field to bring the power, elegance, and history of Mokume Gane into the inlays of each of our rings! The style, energy, and history is simply irresistible! Find more pieces by our artists in our full collection of Mokume Gane Rings!
