HAND CARVING

We offer Hand Carved Waxes as an additional service to our clients. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of a jewelry designers skill, only the most talented artists can master this technique. Hand Carving is a great tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation of jewelry experts. It offers amazing detail and unique design elements that can only be done with the human hand.

FINISHING

The best jewelry has the best finish! We are experts at the final process known as Finishing. We offer all the most popular finishing processes. High polish, brushing, hammering, burnishing, micro blasting, satin. These are the most often used but more are being created every day.

In our state of the art manufacturing and finishing facility, we can produce the perfect finish on your products.

STONE SETTING

Diamond jewelry shines even better with the right stone setting. Choosing the right stone setting should be matched correctly with your design. Each setting creates a different look and has it’s own distinct advantage. To help guide you through the maze of stone setting choices, here is a brief list of the most common settings.

Ballerina / Bar / Channel / Cluster / Flush / Gypsy / Illusion / Invisible / Pave / Prong

PRO MOLD MAKING

Mold making. A mold is made from the original model. The rigid outer molds contain the softer inner mold, which is the exact negative of the original model. Inner molds are usually made of latex, polyurethane rubber or silicone, which is supported by the outer mold. The outer mold can be made from plaster, but can also be made of fiberglass or other materials. Most molds are at least two pieces, and a shim with keys is placed between the two halves during construction so that the mold can be put back together accurately. In case there are long, thin pieces sticking out of the model, these are often cut off of the original and molded separately. Sometimes many molds are needed to recreate the original model, especially large ones.

Once the mold is finished, molten material is poured into it and swished around until an even coating, usually about 1/8 inch or 3 mm thick, covers the inner surface of the mold. This is repeated until the desired thickness is reached. Another method is filling the entire mold with molten wax, and let it cool, until a desired thickness has set on the surface of the mold. After this the rest of the wax is poured out again, the mold is turned upside down and the wax layer is left to cool and harden. With this method it is more difficult to control the overall thickness of the wax layer.

Removal of wax. This hollow copy of the original is removed from the mold. The technician may reuse the mold to make multiple copies, limited only by the durability of the mold.

LASER REPAIR

Laser Welding Jewelry / Jewelry Repair & Design
Jewellery laser welders can be used to fill porosity, re-tip platinum or gold prong settings, repair bezel settings, repair/re-size rings and bracelets without removing stones and correct manufacturing defects. Laser welding reconfigures the molecular structure of either similar or dissimilar metals at the point of welding, allowing the two common alloys to become one.
Manufacturing retail jewelers currently using laser welders are often amazed at the wide range of applications and ability to produce a higher quality product in less time with fewer materials while eliminating excessive heat effects.
One of the key elements in making laser welding applicable to jewelry manufacturing and repair was the development of the “free-moving” concept. In this approach, the laser generates a stationary infrared light pulse which is targeted through the microscope’s cross-hair. The laser pulse can be controlled in size and intensity. Because the heat generated remains localized, operators can handle or fixture items with their fingers, laser welding small areas with pin-point accuracy without causing any harm to the operator’s fingers or hands. This free-moving concept enables users to eliminate costly “fixed” devices and increase the range of jewelry assembly and repair applications.
