This collection is based on ith's wish that the wedding rings filled with the story of two of you
should connect the both of you firmly forever.

Encounters between Handicraft and Industrial Technology

The soft handiwork of ith and the cutting and forging techniques of Fujimori, a Tokyo-based metal jewellery studio, have come across to create a new type of craftsmanship.
The stronger and with more warmth forged collection has been born.

Being Stronger

The forging techniques are also applied to the processing of aircraft parts.
The techniques which underpin Japanese industrial products are also used in the production of jewellery.
In the jewellery industry, the products made with these techniques which their strength and precision can be demonstrated.

With More Warmth

The craftsmanship of artisans infuses a delicate, organic warmth into rings that have been given strength by cutting and forging techniques.

The pioneering industrial technology and the craftsmanship that has been passed on from generation to another.
These two different kinds of methods are united.
This is ith's forged ring collection.

Production Process Encounter of Handcrafting and Industrial Technology

Studio Fujimori has a history of over 50 years
in Sangenjaya, Tokyo. Since its establishment,
the careful craftsmanship of each product,
which is handmade one by one,
resonates with ith's spirits.

Always Considering About You

The days of continuously creating rings
while thinking about the stories of yours are the days that we cherish the most .

The Old Fashioned Techniques

The use of laser machines has become mainstream in jewellery production.
However, at Fujimori, we insist on the traditional methods of making jewellery.

Crafting Wholeheartedly

We create each ring by interacting with the metals
with the thoughts of each one of you in our minds.

Exploring the Technology

It is an artisan's quest for
technology that masters the machine, without relying on a machine.

What is Forging Techniuqe

The soft craftsmanship that ith values and the high-quality industrial technology of cutting and forging that Fujimori, a Tokyo-based workshop, is proud of. The forged collection was created by combining the best of both techniques.

The forging technique has been used in Japan since ancient times by sword smiths, and is also applied to the processing of parts for aircraft due to its reliability in strength. In addition to the delicate casting technique that ith has created in the past, wedding and engagement rings with the strength and refinement of the forging technique are now available. Based on the method of your choice, the craftsmen at our workshop will create a special ring with the warmth of ith by adding surface texture and stone setting.

Forging and Cutting Techniques

Forging is the technique of forging metal to increase its strength and put on the finishing touches to jewellery. When the metal is forged by applying pressure with a special roller or hammer, the air and gas contained in the metal are released, and the metal elements become more closely connected to each other, increasing the strength. It is said to be two to four times stronger than ones made with casting technique.

Cutting is the technique of shaving the width and thickness of a ring evenly using a lathe machine for jewellery, and it is not the performance of the machine itself that makes it possible to adjust the shaving in 0.1mm increments, but the skill and sense of the artisan who uses the machine. The cutting method gives the simple form a sharpness that is different from the warm handwork.

The Forged Design of ith

ith, a small atelier started by a female artisan in Kichijoji, Tokyo. We have been creating wedding and engagement rings with a focus on design, using a feminine unique sensibility to create smooth curves, forms that show off the beauty to the finger, and playful textures on the ring's surface.

The forging and cutting techniques are new forms of manufacturing that combine precision machining with the warmth of the craftsmanship. By pursuing not only the design but also the manufacturing technique and quality, we are creating rings that will live with you for your lifetime.

  1. Extend the Metal

    The round wire of metal that is the ring's base metal is extended using a tool called a rolling mill. This process is unique to the forging technique.

  2. Brazing

    After extended metal wire and it is shaped into a round circle, they are heated to a temperature close to the melting point of it, and the filler metal called "flux" poured into the joint to create strong permanent bonds to close the circle.

  3. Adjusting the Size

    The ring, which has been formed into a closed circle by brazing, is hammered to bring it to the final size. Hitting the ring with a hammer pushes out the air and gas inside the metal increasing the strength of the metal.

  4. Cutting Technique

    This is the process of shaving the width and thickness to the specified dimensions. Using a lathe machine specially designed for jewellery, we cut the sides and then the thickness of the ring in that order.

  5. Buffing Process

    Once the ring is the specified size, width, and thickness, the final finishing is done. This is the process of polishing the surface of the ring with abrasives to give it a mirror finish.
