With Mokume Gane rings there are differences in quality and price
Are there Mokume Gane imitations?
If you take a closer look at the internet and some shops offering Mokume Gane you will notice that there are many different versions and qualities of this technique. The Japanese name Mokume Gane means nothing else but "wood-structured metal", and says nothing about the exact manufacturing method and quality of the ring or wedding ring.
As we are constantly encountering this uncertainty in our daily work in advising our customers, we would now like to provide all interested parties with a clarifying overview of the characteristics of this technique known to us so far. We have given a name to the previously known designs in order to distinguish them clearly from each other.
We at "Wiesner - Die Goldschmiede" do not want to presume to declare something right or wrong. Everything has its justification when it is offered as what it is. However, it is important to us to call the different qualities by their names in order to solve any confusion among our esteemed interested parties.
