Haiku — diamond mokume gane ring
Typical production timing for our jewelry is between 4 and 6 weeks. But also don't forget that some pieces we have in stock.
Yes, you can order a copy of a certain piece with other details (metal, gem, size). Please contact us first, so that we could discuss your order.
Yes! However, not every piece can be engraved, so each case should be discussed with one of our managers. The engraving can be made for jewelry pieces that are made on order. The price for engraving is listed below:
- 1 Letter — $15
- 1 Word / Date — $30
- 1 Phrase — $45
- 1 Symbol — $60
Each jewelry piece is made by us from the very beginning to the end. This approach allows us to control the manufacturing process and maintain high-quality products. Design, casting, creating jewelry, processing with decorative coatings, and fixing gems — all are done in one workshop.
Most of our made-to-order models are not resizable, but in certain cases, we can resize a ring or make a new ring as a replacement for a nominal fee.
If a ring that you purchased from stock doesn’t fit the finger, we are able to offer free of charge replacement of the same model in the size you need. This can be made if the required gem is in stock and the model can be remade.
Yes, we would be happy to see you in our showroom. We are located at 37 Broad St, Red Bank, NJ 07701
Upon delivery, a signature confirmation by a person of 21+ years is required for all Kochut.org orders above $1000. You acknowledge that any person taking delivery of the products at the designated address shall be deemed to have done so with your authorization.
All shipments carry insurance from a third party vendor during the transportation process.
We would like to admit that we very often feel as if we are actually writing poetry when we are creating jewellery.
Instead of words, rhymes and metaphors, we use tools, precious metals and stones. However, what we seek to convey with their help are real lines of poetry that touch our hearts, stanzas which we are inspired to share with the world.
Elegy, sonnet, ruba’i, poem, madrigal, ode, gazelle, ballad, free verse...without missing a single syllable, we do our best to instil the wonder of the written word into each piece with the help of jewels, gold and silver. Thus, two alchemical processes are constantly in motion at our workshop. The first is the materialization of poetry in our pieces.
As far as the mokume gane technique goes, we naturally regard it as a unique reflection of haiku, or Japanese lyrical poetry.
Both in the haiku and in the mokume, precious multi-layered interpretations and depth of images are hidden behind the apparent conciseness and simplicity of the form.
The concepts and themes that are typically attributed to haiku are large-scale canvases, broad cross-sections of reality. At the same time, they subtly convey an elusive moment, an intimate experience, a unique moment — the ‘now’.
One hundred landscapes
in an instant. In the heat.
Drawing the high clouds
Our mokume rings evoke similar feelings. Haiku. You can certainly catch on to their special rhythm, melody and poetry by listening to even just a few. By looking on at the alternating ‘rows’ of gold and silver, you will feel the nuances in meaning of each hidden layer of metal, each image embedded in them. Their manifestation and form are elegantly simple and immensely complex (philosophically, artistically and technically) all at once.
Inimitable, like every moment of life. Our mokume Haiku rings are poetry embodied in precious metals.
