How are rings made (classic wedding rings)

Joining by welding

The first variant is that of assembly by welding.

The desired material is first prepared in the required proportions in order to then be formed and welded shut. 
This variant is mainly used with platinum. Platinum can be welded completely invisibly and permanently.

Unlike alloys containing palladium, such as champagne or white gold, which can absorb a lot of oxygen due to the palladium, and many small air holes/shrinkage can form.

Punching & turning 

The next variant is that of punching & putting over.

Here the material is also melted and cast in a round mould. It is then rolled and punched out. The surface of this “disk” is turned by turning it over/deep-drawing and the ring is created in its basic form. 

The advantage of this method is that we can produce a ring without welding or soldering. Welding is not a problem with platinum, as described above with alloys containing palladium. 

Finally, the ring is brought into the desired shape using a hammer, file and lathe.

Without welding point/joint


  • No pattern break


  • Much more material is needed.
  • Patterning of the surface is less possible.
  • Higher costs – materials and labour.

With joint/joint


  • more sustainable. The material can be used better and there is less waste that has to be separated again.
  • Lively patterns possible
  • Costs are significantly lower


  • Pattern interruption at the joint.

Torsion is a type of mechanical stress in which a body is rotated about its longitudinal axis by a torque. Torsion is a crucial point in the design of the pattern in Mokume Gane, as it controls the angle and spacing of each face.

Surfaces - Structures

Wedding rings and jewelry can be finished in a variety of ways to create a variety of designs and textures. Some of the most common methods of surfacing wedding rings are:

  1. Polishing: Polishing is a technique of polishing the surface of the ring to a mirror finish. This creates a smooth, shiny surface that makes the ring look elegant and timeless.
  2. Brushing: Brushing involves treating the surface of the ring with a special tool to create a matte or satin finish. This can be done with different brush strengths and directions to create different textures.
  3. Texturing: Different patterns and textures can be created on the surface of the ring by texturing. This can be done with a hammer, file, engraving or etching to create unique and interesting designs.
  4. Sandblasting: Sandblasting involves blasting the surface of the ring with sand or another abrasive material to create a rough, matte finish. This can be done in different thicknesses to create different textures and designs. Unfortunately, this variant is the most short-lived before the ring begins to shine.
  5. Laser Engraving: A laser can be used to create fine, precise patterns and designs on the surface of the ring. This technique makes it possible to create very detailed designs and personal engravings.

laser engravings

Laser engraving is a popular method of personalizing wedding rings. A laser can be used to create a variety of engravings or texts on the surface of metals. The engraving is designed using a computer program and then applied to the surface of the ring using a high-precision laser.

One of the most popular types of laser engraving for wedding rings is to engrave names, initials or dates. These engravings are generally placed on the inside of the rings to add a personal touch that is only visible to the wearer of the ring.

In addition, symbols or patterns can also be laser engraved onto the surface of the ring to make the ring unique and special. For example, this could be a family crest, a specific symbol, or a personal meaning.

Laser engraving offers the advantage that it can be very precise and detailed and therefore also very fine designs can be applied in a small space. In addition, the engraving is very durable.

Laser engravings are included with our wedding rings!

ring size change

There may be times when one will need a ring size change over time, whether due to weight changes, pregnancy or other reasons. This can also be the case with wedding rings. Fortunately, there are several ways to adjust ring size to ensure the ring can be worn comfortably and securely.

Of course, this is also included mokume gane rings is possible.
