Highest quality materials

Mokume Australia uses only the finest non-allergenic materials and specially alloyed precious metals in our mokume-gane rings. Optimised for strong colour, durability and nickle-free composition, we can also match cutting edge materials such as titanium and zirconium with our mokume-gane designs, making lasting jewellery that is durable, light weight, dent and corrosion resistant.

What is mokume-gane?

Mokume-gane is a Japanese metalworking technique that results in a mixed-metal laminate, that when worked, carved and formed creates intricate swirling patterns that are as unique as your fingerprints.

Every ring made by Mokume Australia using this time honoured technique is an individual.

We use a searing hot furnace, cutting edge tools and traditional Japanese metalworking techniques that have stood the test of centuries to create our bespoke rings. Each is handcrafted and made to your desires — whether that be our classic 18ct gold and silver mokume-gane inlayed into titanium, two rings using mokume metal created from the same piece of mokume-gane, or even a custom designed personal piece.

The history of mokume-gane

From the late 1600s to mid-1800s Japanese swords were a symbol of wealth and power, often associated with ancient warriors in battle. It was during this period the mokume-gane technique originated to create the decorative handles and sheaths of these distinguished swords.

What is titanium?

Titanium is a durable, light weight, dent and corrosion resistant, and attractive metal used in modern times for a variety of purposes. From hip replacements to aeroplanes, tennis racquets and even in cutting-edge NASA space missions, titanium happens to be a striking addition to our custom made jewellery, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after choices in our wedding bands.

Named for the Titans of Greek mythology, this hard and tough metal is heat, deformation and scratch resistant making it an extremely difficult and laborious metal to work with. But by using expert metalworking techniques, we work with these natural qualities to produce high end, lasting fine jewellery that carries all the rare qualities that make it a remarkable material to wear.

A warrior’s might, coupled with stylish finesse. Like James Bond with a Samurai sword.
