Mokume Gane

Poetry in precious metals

Mokume is translated from Japanese as “wood-eye” and gane, “metal.” This refers to the unique pattern created in the finished pieces that resembles the grain of wood.

Mokume gane was originally developed in 17th century Japan by Denbei Shoami. The process was developed to adorn the sword handles and sheaths of samurai swords.

At Elkin Studio Jewelers we hand fabricate mokume gane in several styles and patterning. We use the finest available precious metals; 14k palladium white gold, .950 palladium, 18k & 14k gold and .925 and .999 silver combinations.
