This not-quite-traditional band has been forged from molten platinum using old world methods of metal smithing. The hint of rustic texturing gives the classic wedding band a subtle, organic twist.

Your ring will be made from scratch: Dan will pour an ingot of platinum, hard roll it, and finish it to your preference. Because the metal is cold worked, hand forged bands like this one are denser and stronger than bands that are cast. Platinum has a wear characteristic that outlasts gold 10x to 1x. We use an alloy that is 95% platinum and 5% ruthenium.

This listing's price covers bands in ring size 7.25-10. For ring sizes outside of this window, please contact us for pricing.

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. In the final pictures, you can see Dan melting platinum, hand milling the stock and finishing the ring.
