Process

During the manufacturing process, every piece passes through an average of 65 pairs of hands. Every item you wear has been lovingly crafted.

1. Creating and developing designs

We begin by identifying current trends, gathering customer feedback, and evaluating local market needs, which help our ideas being transformed into potential prototypes.

2. Rubber Mold Cutting

Our rubber mold is created by pressing several layers of rubber around a Jewellery master with our unique designs and vulcanizing it. The master is then cut away leaving a rubber mold with an identical hollow impression.

3. Wax model and Treeing

The molten wax is injected into the rubber mold, and two metal plates are pressed on either side of the mold to keep the wax from running out, resulting in exact replicas of the original Jewellery master.

4. Burnout Oven

After that, the wax trees are inserted into metal cylinders to make plaster molds. The cylinders are filled with liquid gypsum and heated for several hours in a burnout oven, hardening the gypsum and melting and evaporating the wax.

5. Three C’s- Casting, Cleaning, Cutting

CASTING - After the above process is completed, the plaster molds are poured into a casting machine with our recycled gold alloy. The metal alloy melts into the forms that are exact replicas of the Jewellery master.

6. Grinding

The next step is to remove the metal nub that was left behind when the piece was cut from the tree, allowing the metal to be refined further.

7. Quality Control in real time

Throughout our crafting process, there are numerous quality control checkpoints, the timing of which varies from one crafting facility to the next. This is usually where we do our first check.

8. Assembling soldering & stone setting

Using a variety of crafting techniques, our skilled goldsmiths embellish and detail our jewellery designs. To create the finished masterpieces, various elements are assembled and soldered as needed.
