Obi Ring by Alvaro Coronado,
jewelry designer and martial artist

A beautifully crafted piece of martial arts jewelry; a shining symbol and visual tribute of your discipline, dedication and desire to master your own personal martial arts style recorded in centuries of history, rich in time-honored tradition, and forever rooted in culture and customs.

The Obi Ring is uniquely designed by Shotokan martial artist and jewelry designer, Alvaro Coronado. Alvaro's provisionally-patented design allows a martial arts student or master, of any style, to create a beautiful, lasting symbol that marks his/her own personal journey from white belt to black belt and beyond.

Through Coronado's ingenious design of interchangeable obi gemstones, the martial artist enhances the Coronado Obi Ring with hand-picked Obi Stones, rich in color and deep in meaning. The obi stones are offered in an array of colors to match your martial arts belt (obi) and acknowledge your rank.

Simply choose your Obi Stones to measure your past, present and future progress as a martial artist. The Obi Ring and its Obi Stones create a piece of martial art jewelry worthy of your dedication. The Obi Ring is a beautiful piece of martial arts jewelry to be admired by others, but to the martial artist, it secretly and privately signifies a much deeper meaning of pride and honor.
