True Artistry

While each artist has their own unique vision and techniques, few modern jewelers are able to forge true Mokume Gane. In our studio, artisans are armed with a traditional hammer, chisel, and heat to create true Mokume Gane jewelry. The result? Exceptional, one-of-a-kind pieces that are a testament to the ancient craft.

Unparalleled Technique

Through extreme heat and pressure, layers of precious metals are forged into a solid Mokume Gane billet. In addition to pure copper, silver, and 18K gold, Jaume Labro uses palladium and platinum to deepen and strengthen the final product.
Once the billet is formed, it is hammered, carved, and shaped until the desired Mokume Gane pattern emerges.
