What We Do
Traditional Design Sketch
Whether it be one of our original designs or a custom design, the importance of a traditional sketch is key for fleshing out ideas, and priming a design for the 3D modeling process.
3D Design & Rendering
Our team then builds up a 3D model to exact specifications. This includes a customer's ring size, all the setting details, and prototypal stones put in place to ensure proper fit during the stone setting process. In the case of custom design, a client may request revisions to perfect the desired outcome.
3D Printing & Casting
Designs are 3D printed to create prototypes made of a castable resin. A mold of the 3D printed prototype is made (with prototype kept in place), and eventually filled with molten gold which melts away the resin and fills in the mold's negative space. The end result once the gold has been set and cleaned out is a solid gold setting that requires trimming, smoothing, and detailed polishing before stones can be set.
In-House Setting & Finishing
Last but not least, stones are carefully selected and set by hand. Increased magnification and specialized tools are required for this level of detail. Once all stones are properly set, final detailing, cleaning, and polishing are done before the piece is sent to it's new forever home.
