These wedding rings are created by splitting one ring to produce two hand-made rings. This process leaves a small trace, which is turned into a part of the ring's design and strengthens the couple's bond through the memory of common experience. They can also share this happy memory with their family and friends by including it in the wedding ceremony. The rings are made using the 400-year-old Japanese metalsmithing skill of “Mokume Gane”, which employs beautiful wood grain patterns to produce a very unique ring. The wedding rings' shared origin is a perfect symbol of the deep bond between two people in love.
