Handmade Wedding Bands Challenge
In the Heart of Sangenjaya
MITUBACI TOKYO is a 1-minute walk from Sangenjaya station (access by train via the Tokyu Den-en-toshi line or the Setagaya line), located on the 4th level of the retro-looking Royal Mansion building.
Before getting started, you will be shown some jewelry samples. After deciding on your designs, you're good to get started!
Lengthening The Metal
Once you have decided on the material and color of your ring, our artisan will prepare a strip of metal—the very material used to make your ring. This metal strip will be lengthened out with the metal roller repeatedly. Applying more pressure to the metal increases its density along with durability, thus ensuring your jewelry to last a lifetime.
Engrave on the back of the metal strip with either metal stamps or hand engraving by machine. You may choose to make your own ring or exchange with your partner!
The metal strip is bent with a wooden hammer around a ring mandrel. Once it takes the shape of a ring, the metal is further compressed with a ring stretcher to increase its durability, which is achievable only through the Tanzō forging method.
The soldering process comes next and closes up the gap in the ring. At this stage, workshop participants will be able to experience handling the torch under close guidance by our veteran artisans.
※ Please note that the soldering of Platinum 950 will be handled by the artisans solely.
Achieving The Perfect Fit
You will be asked to try on the ring during the DIY processes. This ensures you to achieve a better fit than when you purchase ready-made rings!
Filing and Sanding
More tools are used to smoothen the surfaces of your ring.

The finished plain ring is then surface treated. In this case, we selected the hammered surface. By hammering the ring, a hammered pattern appears on the surface.

The pictures were then shared with us, and we could reminisce about our experience even after the workshop! We will cherish our handmade wedding bands!"
