The first step is to determine the metals that will be used in the creation of the Mokume ring. In this case the design calls for 14 karat palladium white gold and Platinum enhanced silver. The 14 karat white gold is made with 58.5% pure gold and 41.5% palladium, and yields a nice greyish white alloy. The platinum enhanced silver is 92.5% Pure silver, 5% platinum and 2.5% copper. This alloy gives a beautiful bright white color and exceptional ductility, malleability and tarnish resistance.
