This ring has been handcrafted using sterling silver for the band and shibuichi for the disc. Shibuichi is a Japanese alloy traditionally used in the making of katana (Japanese swords).
The sterling silver band is 6 mm wide and 1 mm thick. The shibuichi disc is 2 cm in diameter and 1 mm thick. It has been treated with a flame torch to reticulate the shibuichi and provide texture. Subtle rose pink and silver tones interplay on the disc. The shibuichi has been treated with a protective coating to reduce oxidation and ensure it keeps looking as good as the day it was made.
