At the heart of Mokume Gane lies a profound respect for the natural beauty of metals. This ancient art form originated in 17th-century Japan and was primarily used to adorn the revered Katana swords of samurais.

It takes a tremendous amount of time to learn this artisanal skill, and what sets VIORO apart is that we are the only brand worldwide doing this entirely and purely in18kt gold only!
Mokume Gane, which translates to “wood grain metal”, is a fusion of metals meticulously forged and layered to form intricate patterns that mimic the organic patterns found in wood grain. The technique involves carefully bonding different layers of gold, which are then twisted, carved, and shaped to reveal astonishing patterns reminiscent of nature’s artistry.
Each piece of Mokume Gane jewelry is a testament to the remarkable skills of the artisans who breathe life into these wearable works of art. The process demands unwavering precision, patience and a deep understanding of the precious metal’s behavior during forging.
