George Sawyer's designs are an art form, bringing together design, originality, and technical virtuosity.  George Sawyer creates unique engagement rings using a technique called mokume gane.  The origin of mokume gane started in the early 1600s with Japanese swords, and is carried forward to the beauty of engagement rings.   Each piece is like a fingerprint, no two are exactly alike. If ordered at the same time, mirrored patterns can be created across a ring and the matching band.

"In my work I try to achieve a harmony between form, surface pattern and color. The exploration of the graphic and painterly qualities of color-patterned metal, and the technical challenges of producing sculptural objects from this material, continue to fascinate me. I am interested in using color and pattern in a more abstract way to create a form of art jewelry that rewards the observer with new discoveries, and more pleasure, the longer and closer they look."
