Having mastered Mokume Gane after years of study under masters of the art, Jaume Labro had an inspiration. What, he asked himself, would happen if he could devise a process in which only the finest gold alloys combined with platinum were used to create a Mokume-Gane like result?
To achieve this, Labro used sophisticated tools and techniques that would not have been available to the craftsmen of the past. His aim was to replicate nature in much the same way as Mokume Gane does, replacing silver with a metal that requires great skill to work at all: platinum.
The most discerning jewelry connoisseurs invariably seek out the unique. Now, they have access to Jaume Labro’s one-of- a-kind Royal Mokume, the product of a technique that his studio developed, and that no other can emulate.
As with traditional Mokume Gane, no pattern is ever repeated. Nature takes charge, helped along by Jaume Labro’s high-tech methods. Thus, every Royal Mokume piece will fulfill your wish for the unique, and no matter how hard they try, no other goldsmith would ever be able to copy your piece.
The craftsmen of centuries ago would have been willing to sacrifice anything to achieve the incredible combinations and patterns that Jaume Labro has created with his proprietary process. The bold, flowing patterns transform gold, taking it from being the setting for gems to a point where it is even more fabulous than the stones that adorn it.
