"Escutcheon" for TPR vent pipe?

Hi. I am replacing wood bevel siding and need to run a 3/4" copper discharge valve from my water heater through the siding (perpendicular to the course). What is the bestway to waterproof the opening? I would prefer not to put caulk around it. Is there some kind of metal fixture I can buy or solder?

Thanks!

No matter what you decide to put on for "pretty", I would still seal the hole with a sealant such as OSI Quad. The plumbing department will have split escutcheons that can be applied after the fact, although they may not weather well unless you can find a plastic one.
