I am Jun Ikeda, the second generation owner of the
handmade jewelry store, Jewelry Kouki.
We make and sell high quality and unique rings with our
Japanese traditional hand crafted skill.
-We produce both rings out of one piece of platinum
adding sentimental value as you both share rings from the
same original piece of metal.
We place special emphasis on the ‘Kaji’ process, a type of
metal smithing which requires heating and hammering the
metal repeatedly to create strength in the metal itself. This
method removes tiny amounts of air out of the metal and
also rearranges the metal particles to shape and refine the
metal. This is a traditional Japanese method.
A lot of jewelry is made by simply pouring the molten metal
into shapes. We produce our rings by hand with our
traditional skills. We don’t form our jewelry in this
conventional way so we are confident with our product as
we refine the material through the traditional method.
Our products have a unique comfortable feeling when
worn which you won’t find with a lot of rings out there.
Enjoy premium Japanese handmade rings that we create
out of our passion for the traditional methods.
All our products are hand made out of our shop in Niigata,
Jewelry Kouki was founded in 1987. We make high quality
and unique rings with our Japanese traditional hand
crafted skill. We have our own shop in Niigata, Japan. You
