Description

Bright mirror finish shibuichi ring - a plain, simple band. Cast in a mould rather than formed from sheet or wire, there are no solder joins in this piece. Perfect as a wedding or engagement ring that's a bit different, or just for everyday wear.

Shibuichi is an alloy of copper and silver, which can occur naturally but in this instance was made in my workshop. Equal weights of copper and silver are melted together and cast into a ring. The process is time-consuming and difficult with a relatively high failure rate, but the results are a beautiful metal which is somewhere between the soft sheen of fine silver and the gentle glow of copper. This ring will definitely draw comments and admiration, shibuichi is very rare in jewellery!

Due to the composition of the alloy, this ring will tarnish slightly with time, picking up a soft grey colouration. This adds another dimension and character to the piece, although it can easily be polished off using a mild abrasive such as Brasso or even a dab of household toothpaste if you prefer.

Made to order, just let me know your size when you place an order.
