This couple has signed up for our handmade wedding bands workshop! Under the guidance of our veteran artisan Hiromi-san, let's see what we can achieve in just a few hours!

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.

Reception

Design Consultation

Before getting started, you will be shown some jewelry samples. After deciding on your designs, you're good to get started!

The Making Begins

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.

30 Minutes In

Engraving

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!

1 Hour In

Shaping

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!
