Step 1: Start with High-Quality Damascus Steel
We source our Woodgrain Damascus steel from a small forges that specializes in custom patterns. The material is made in the USA.
Step 2: Cut Exterior Shell
We cut the ring's shell on a lathe.
Step 3: Buff to a Mirror Finish
Giving the ring a mirror finish before the acid bath ensures the pattern's texture will be consistent.
Step 4: Acid Bath
Each ring's unique pattern is the result of how two steels were twisted and compressed as they were forged together. As the acid eats away at one steel faster than the other, the pattern is revealed.
Step 5: Have the Gold Cast
Our gold pieces are cast in New York City's legendary jewelry district.
Step 6: Assemble the Ring
The parts are cleaned and adhered together. We then let the piece cure for about 24 hours.
Step 7: Polish to Perfection
Once the ring has fully etched, we neutralize the acid, clean it, and carefully hand polish.
