Manufacturing

Whether you prefer our master craftsmen to create a unique piece or to become part of the designing process of your own jewellery at our premises, we can offer you the ultimate in design choice.

The Design Process

We have a design department; complete with the ability to produce virtually rendered images of the design prototype (CAD).

We can develop a product using you input. There are two ways to do this:

1. You can provide a physical sample of what you need. We can either make an exact copy of it or we can make certain modifications if necessary.
   
2. You can provide black-and-white drawings or virtual images that will be used to help create your design.

The Manufacturing Process

The basic manufacturing steps are designing, molding, casting, polishing, finishing and plating. Most jewellery is produced by casting machines. After the design is finalized a high technology mold is used to make a wax reproduction of the jewellery. The master mold, with all of the fine details, sets the base for the total manufacturing process. Molding and casting are complex processes that require high levels of skill and experience.

In some cases the item is totally manufactured by hand without the above, increasing the manufacturing price.

Metal

Gold is an ideal raw material for jewellery as it doesn’t corrode, rust or tarnish and, although it is strong, it’s also the most malleable of all metals. Platinum is relatively rare and more valuable than gold. Platinum’s popularity is driven by its durability and attractive silver-white colour.
