14kt Palladium white gold, rose gold and silver mokume band. Size 3 3/4, 3.2mm wide. It weighs 2 grams. This mokume band with its warm tones from the rose gold invoke images of the swirling storms of Jupiter for me.
Mokume is a 17th century Japanese technique of layering different metals and then manipulating the resulting metal by carving twisting, drilling etc to produce various patterns in the finished piece. It has similarities to damascus steel in look and process.
