These are amazing. They are black jaguar rings handmade in Shakudō (赤銅). I'm honored to offer these rings to you today! These are not available anywhere else online. We made a custom order, using our materials. When I saw his work, I fell in love! I had never seen anything quite like these. Of course I kept one for myself.

The diamonds in the eyes are genuine. Look at that expression on the face, that cannot be done with a machine, that is all done by hand. Shakudō dates back to 710 B.C. in Japan. Our special alloy is 10% gold and 90% copper, with a special patina process to make the surface black.

This is a very limited run, when they're gone, they are GONE!


On care of Shakudo:

Shakudo is a bit softer than gold, so care must be taken when you wear it.

Periodically rum entire ring with bee’s wax.

If the patina gets scraped or scratched or rubbed off some with normal wear, place the item in 1/2 cup of very warm water with 2 teaspoons of dissolved salt and soak for 30 min. With time the patina will develop and evolve.

Some folks have high acidity and even though the insides of the rings are costed with rhodium platinum may leave slight skin coloration, but if the ring is rubbed with a tiny amount of some bee’s wax inside and out, this loss of some patina on the skin stops.

You will see some brown spots in different places of the ring, that is from the patina process. It is part of the handmade allure, and should not be counted as a flaw. As we said, with time the patina will develop and evolve.

The ring is beautiful and was shipped to me very quickly. My mother had this exact wedding band when she married my dad in 1948. I have always loved this ring, now I have a copy of it forever!
