"ring sharing ceremony"wedding rings
These “ring sharing ceremony” wedding rings are created by splitting one ring to produce two rings by couples own hands. This process leaves a small trace, which is turned into a part of the ring's design and strengthens the couple's bond through the memory of common experience.
This wedding ring is manufactured by using the 400-year-old Japanese metalsmithing skill of “Mokume Gane”, creating beautiful wood grain patterns by layering many different colour metals and forging them together.
Statement of the jury
An outwardly stunning, unusual and unique approach to wedding rings. The use of ancient Japanese metalworking techniques combined with modern innovation has seemingly produced the perfect wedding rings for a couple. The wood-like grain pattern in the rings flows into each other, presenting a distinctive and recognisable pattern when held together as a pair.
