Tungsten Rings Answer The Call Of The Wild!
March 25, 2012
If you are looking for a whole lot of flair, and want to grab some attention wearing your tungsten rings, then I’ve found just the look for you. Mens tungsten wedding bands designer, Jewelry Innovations has created more than one bold look, using the centuries old technique, Mokume Gane to dress up their styles.
Mokume Gane was originally used in fashioning and individualizing the swords of the Samurai. In a highly abbreviated nutshell, it’s created by choosing the desired metals, often gold, copper, or silver, then heating these metals just enough that they do not completely mix together. Once that happens, the metals are pressed and folded repeatedly until they create one solid piece, yet still maintaining the color and brilliance of each individual metal. I have no doubt that any skilled artisan of this difficult craft would roll over in their grave at my simplistic and incomplete description of this fabulous process, but for the sake of time and the laymen among us, that is my synopsis. If you want to know more details, definitely google it, and see the fabulous pieces that masters of the trade have forged using this technique.
The combination of tungsten rings with the Mokume Gane inlay is absolutely genius. The strength and modern appeal of tungsten, side by side with a metal as rich in tradition and heritage as Mokume Gane is simply the perfect collaboration of past and present. Some of these tungsten bands feature an in your face, impossible to ignore, type of boldness for the man who will never settle for being one of the crowd. Others have a subtle strength that will be gently pleasing for the strong yet silent type. Which type are you?
