Titanium-jewelry.com Introduces the Highly Anticipated TIMOKU Collection from Edward Mirell
Ancient Japanese Samurai sword-making technique used create stunning titanium jewelry
(Modesto, Calif.) November 9, 2009 Ė Titanium-Jewelry.com, a trusted online resource and retailer of menís wedding bands, tungsten rings, titanium rings and unique menís jewelry, is pleased to announce the arrival of the EM TIMOKU collection of menís, ladiesí and unisex rings by Edward Mirell.
ďWeíre excited to bring the exotic EM TIMOKU collection to our offering this season,Ē said Ron Yates, founder, Titanium-Jewelry.com. ďThe collection of TIMOKU rings is very special. Thereís really no other designer with a mokume gane ring using titanium as its material. The manufacturing process combines ancient Japanese metalsmithing techniques with contemporary metals and modern technology. The resulting design of each ring is a truly distinctive unique pattern.Ē
TIMOKU derives its name from mokume gane, a Japanese metalworking technique invented in the 17th century and originally employed in the crafting of Samurai swords. Mokume gane translates to ďwood-eye metal,Ē referring to the finished productís resemblance to the patterns of burl wood grain. In this process, multiple layers of metals are permanently fused together by means of intense heat and pressure into a single laminated piece which is then cut, twisted and forged to expose the layers, resulting in highly unique, wood grain-like patterns.
With its TIMOKU collection, Edward Mirell has united the art and science of mokume gane with modern technology and space-age metals. Titanium is completely hypoallergenic and corrosion-resistant, and boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all metals, making it an increasingly sought-after material by jewelry makers and consumers.
Owing to the special process, no two TIMOKU pieces look quite alike. As with woodwork, each ring bears a singular eye-catching grain pattern (which in mokume gane tradition signifies strength and harmony of individual elements). TIMOKU rings are available in a variety of widths and styles. The bands have a textured, organic feel and are comfort fit - easier to remove and offering better all-day comfort than conventional fit rings.
Due to the laborious process of making each ring, the TIMOKU Collection is only available at select retailers. Currently, it is available online only at Titanium-Jewelry.com. Several hundred customers have waited nearly one year for the arrival of the TIMOKU collection. Each ring is individually manufactured per the customerís finger size, after it is ordered.
