One of the noblest of metals, platinum has a wear characteristic that outlasts gold 10x to 1x. And because these two bands are formed from the same ingot of platinum, you will feel warmed by the knowledge that the symbols of your devotion to one another were created from the same source!
Dan hammers the center of the bands in our "waterfall" hammering style, with an effect tending toward a ripple of light rather than the multi-directional scatter of light created by hammering in typical bands. The textured bevel creates sparkle in other directions for added dimension.
The larger band pictured is made from hand-milled stock that is 6mm wide and 2mm thick. The stock of the smaller band is 3mm wide and 2mm thick. Both bands are finished in the comfort fit style, where the inner edges of the band “taper” or “roll” to the outer edge.
Platinum has an extremely high melting point (3236 degrees F), so working with raw platinum requires a big torch, dark glasses, and lots of fire. The final four pictures show Dan melting platinum into an ingot, which he then handmills into ring stock prior to forging it into shape.
We use an alloy of 95% platinum and 5% ruthenium in our platinum jewelry.
The price of this listing reflects a discount from the cost of two individual bands and covers up to size 7 for the smaller band and up to size 10 for the larger band. Size 7.25 or size 10.25 and above, or for different dimensions or choice of metal, please contact us for pricing.
