Here is a strong but elegant ring, hand forged in platinum. A thick 2.5mm x 2.5mm full round band, this would make an awesome wedding band for anyone, but particularly a man who wants a more slender band. It is heavy enough to be considered masculine, despite its slender nature.
Dan will make this ring for you from scratch, starting with molten platinum. He will pour an ingot, which looks a bit like a lumpy baby carrot. He then rolls this ingot into a square form with his rolling mill, down and down, until it is small enough to pull through circular "doors" on his gauge.
The final photo shows Dan "pulling wire" for a spool ring, which will have very delicate wire wound around the base of the ring. Difficult to see in the photo, the wire becomes thinner and thinner as Dan pulls it through progressively smaller doors. The concept is the same for full round rings made in larger dimensions.
These days, it is very easy to buy pre-made full round stock and simply solder it together, but Dan always prefers to make his own.
We use an alloy of 95% platinum and 5% ruthenium for our platinum jewelry.
This listing covers up to size 10. Size 10.25 and above, or for different dimensions or choice of metal, please contact us for pricing.
