Creating a piece of our jewelry
So, how do we make these fantastic pieces of art that we all love to wear? Well, we have to keep track of two processes involved.
First of is processing the gem that will become the crown of the jewelry.
The gem is cut, pre-formed, ground, polished and drilled to become a stunning centerpiece of your necklace or ring.
Forming the jewelry
The jeweler makes a general outline of the jewelry by forming wax into the right shape. The wax template is then used to make the final ring. Today this forming process is mostly done by computers, either by making a drawing for the wax template to be carved by hand or by actually creating the wax template itself.
Wax that melts away, forming fantastic pieces of art
The wax template is then pressed into a plastic film which creates molds for the jewelry. This way you can create a new wax template the next time you want to make a similar jewelry.
The jeweler then uses the following steps to make the perfect jewelry:
- The wax template is placed into calcinated lime to form the jewelry’s shape.
- The calcinated lime is then heated to melt the wax, forming a cavity in the shape of the jewelry in making.
- The jeweler fills up the cavity in the lime with the metal of his or her choice.
- Your new necklace or ring is ready to be finished!
Fitting the gem
If the jewelry contains a stone the jeweler makes a stone-inlay which is embedded in the gemstone on a jewel metal support. The last step is polishing the jewelry to make it all shiny and ready for you to wear!
We then inspect the product and if we decide it’s good enough, it gets prepared to be sent straight to our customer’s door, cutting out all the middle-men and giving you a fantastic price.
