TWISTED WOOD | Palladium and Silver Women's Mokume Band with Tantalum Liner

TWISTED WOOD | Palladium and Silver Women's Mokume Band with Tantalum Liner

from 1,819.00

This TWISTED WOOD band is a modern take on a classic Mokume design.  It features our finest Palladium and Silver woodgrain Mokume Gane with a lining of pure Tantalum.  Tantalum is a favorite of ours not only for its warm, dark color, but also for it's many unique metallurgical qualities.  First, it is 99.95+% pure and the luxurious weight of 18K Gold.  It also happens to be completely inert and is commonly used for medical implants which makes it ideal for anyone with metal sensitivities. Tantalum is as strong as steel, yet as ductile as pure gold. There is no other metal like it for quality and durability, and no metal that offers a greater color contrast to silver, gold, or stainless steel Damascus.

These contemporary TWISTED WOOD bands are available in 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 7mm widths for women and also in all men's sizes and widths. A complimentary sizing band is provided to confirm your correct ring size for each Mokume band ordered. Please allow up to 6 weeks for us to make and ship these special rings.

FREE FedEx Express shipping and insurance included for these rings!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Did you know that Silver is the only, truly, white metal. That is why we use it in combination with a dark gray Palladium alloy and even darker Tantalum. Combined, these metals create a ring with incredible color contrast, enhancing the natural woodgrain look of this design. The flow of the pattern is uninterrupted by solder seams cutting through the grain of the ring, and is a fitting symbol of eternal love and the flow of life.

Tantalum is a very demanding metal.  We have worked with this metal for years trying to unravel the complexities of this unusual element and have pioneered its use for jewelry.  Hot forging of Tantalum must be done in a vacuum or under molten glass.  It is nothing short of nearly impossible to machine.  We think the extra effort is worth it though, and hope you will too.  As technology advances, you'll be hearing more and more about this metal.  Consider being one of the first to wear a ring crafted from this impressive metal.

Wow! Very beautiful and impressive works of art and engineering!
