Great news for all our Australian customers, Edward Mirell have recommenced production of their world famous, one of a kind Timoku products.
There is no other product like Edward Mirell Timoku anywhere in the world. Reason being that Edward Mirell are the only makers of true Black Titanium, owning the patent on this product.
The Timoku pattern comes from combining Black and Grey Titanium, joining them together , then twisting and hammering the two metals. A Ring blank is then cut, whereupon the final product can be made.
Many of our customers have enjoyed the incredible Timoku ring – most often for a wedding ring, although we have supplied the occasional Timoku for a fashion ring.
My personal favourite is the incredible Bevelled ring. Having seen it a number of times it really is quite incredible, with amazing pattern of the Timoku framed by the Grey Titanium bevelled edge. Every customer that has bought it has always commented on how incredible it looks.
If you are in the market for a unique titanium ring, and you like something a bit unusual, check out the Edward Mirell Timoku range, we can guarantee they’ll get noticed!!
Hidetoshi Nakata was dubbed by some as the David Beckham of Asia due to his well groomed appearance and his love of all things fashion. The Japanese sensation was never far out of the spotlight often featuring in many of the worlds largest publications.
Now Hideyoshi has ventured into the world of Jewellery and has a collaborative line with Italian designer Damiani, which is known as “Metropolitan Dream”. Metropolitan Dream is aimed at the Metropolitan man – but it is supposed to be overwhelmingly a unisex line.
Leather, gold and pink gold are common themes with these pendants and bracelets, which, Hidetoshi is hopeful will be a hit with the younger market.
Part proceeds of each sale will go towards helping a clean water project in Africa, which is something that is most dear to his heart. “Actually, one of the conditions for me to agree to do this project was that I would get a chance to go to Africa to see this Clean Water Project for myself. Giorgio said okay and next year, we’re going there. If he had said no, then I probably would not have signed on.”
Although the ability to anodise steel has been around for many decades, its application in jewellery has been mainly associated with female lines, in particular rings and necklaces. Anodising creates remarkable colours by a process which involves electrically charged particles.

Recently however, Edward Mirell have given the anodisation process something of a renaissance! Mens titanium bands are now seeing a splash of colour through them which has not previously been seen in any of the Edward Mirell lines in the past.
The blue anodised effect is more subtle with black titanium
One of the key features to note with the anodised rings is the slight recessed channels where the colour is situated. This has the effect of protecting the colour and greatly increasing its life because it is not surface facing and therefore has a considerably reduced risk of being scratched.
Although Edward Mirell have had the ability to create these designs for many years, these are quite new lines so they have only released a select few bands. The theme is predominantly blue mens rings although other designs are said to be following soon. The products are currently limited to both black titanium and grey titanium. There are no plans to have anodised Cobalt bands at this stage.
So come and check them out, they’ve proven to be quite popular so far, particularly the grey titanium variety as the contrast between the blue and grey is quite remarkable.
