This is the coolest ring I have ever seen! My wife got me one. The one I have is inlayed with rose gold makume shakudo (rose gold and copper Damascus). The ring is remarkably light, harder than even natural diamond, and beautiful. It is so light that it feels cheap and unsubstantial, but it is made of real man made diamond. I checked it with an ice cube and it did melt the ice just like a real diamond. The edges are a little sharp, and there is no amount of customization since it is so hard. Mine is supposed to be a size 10, but seems closer to a 9.5 since my old ring is 9.75 and this one is smaller. The polished finish looks good, and it you forget about the ring almost immediately due to the incredible light feeling. It is a little thick for a man's ring, I believe this is because the material it is made of, so you may feel it with your middle and pinky fingers. These rings will not bend so you don't have to worry about it smashing your finger, they will simply shatter. They don't absorb smells so you don't have to worry about that. They don't conduct electricity well, but since these have inlays of gold you do have to worry about that. They are harder than tungsten carbide, and lighter than titanium. The best material you can make a ring from. If you can afford it, this is the best ring for a man.

The smoky black color of the Elysium ring pairs very nicely with the rich 14K rose gold mokume gane inlay. It's gorgeous!
What is Elysium?
It is diamond! The ring is made up of thousands of laboratory-grown diamond crystals, ground up and held together with a binder, then formed into your wedding band. Diamond as you know is incredibly hard! So nothing will scratch it! (Your Elysium will scratch other materials, so be careful.) Most Elysium rings will weigh around 25 carats! That's more than the diamond weight in her ring!
The ring is 8mm wide and has a beveled edge. In the center is an inlay of 14K rose gold mokume gane. This mokume gane is an ancient form of metal working that layers different materials together to achieve a beautiful pattern. In this case it is 14k rose gold and copper twisted together and then an acid finish brings out the pattern.
Each ring is made as it is ordered and takes about 3 weeks.
*Elysium is a soft black color, not jet black.*
