Combining gold and black requires the use of a unique material we have adopted from the scientific and medical world. It combines the exotic pure element zirconium with a secondary portion of rose, yellow or white gold (9ct rose gold pictured) in a seamless blend of dissimilar metals. It requires calculation, precise manual machining, hand finishing and multiple heat treatment processes.
It is a 6mm wide band, 5mm black zirconium with a 1mm trim of gold which continues on the inside of the ring. The gold is a solid machined ring, there are no solder joints. It’s solid gold, not a plating. The parts are precisely and tightly fitted together.
The outer diameter of the ring has a brushed finish on both the black zirconium and gold sections. The side walls and the interior of the ring are given a high polish.
The end result is an absolutely stunning effect of light and dark that will stand the test of time in terms of durability and design.
Monoblack is our name for oxidised zirconium, a metal that has had its surface converted into an extremely durable black ceramic layer. Read more about Monoblack here.
