  • Handmade item
  • Materials: copper, silver, shibuichi
  • Band color: Copper

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.

Mat did a fantastic job. His work and communication is wonderful. Unfortunately, I think my fiancee's fingers swelled because the ring was a little tight, but Mat did everything that was requested. Love it! Thank you so much.

While international shipping during the holidays gave both Mat and I serious headaches, this ring finally (!!) showed up! My favorite Junglist could not be more thrilled with his upgrade to his wedding ring :-)

Wow. I have been looking for green gold ring and was disappointed that I was unable to get one from Uk. I finally decided to take the plunge and buy one when Shinium ring appeared. I was delighted, not only was the size perfect, the detailed description from seller very helpful but also the price was good (even for a defect that the seller highlighted but does not detract from beauty of ring.. can barely see it) but also made in Norwich my home city. I am so very very happy with service, speed, honesty and quality. Would definitely buy again from Shinium and recommend highly. Thank you so much

This ring has amazing textures and colours running through the wood and definitely makes an impression. Great value and Mat is very helpful and speedy at answering any queries. He even resized one of the rings for us, for no extra charge. Well recommended! Andy :-)
