MATERIALS & PROCESS
Fine 18ct yellow gold granules are melted in our organised specific crucibles than poured into a bar moulds where the gold is then quenched in our special solution that cleans and prepares the precious metal for the "drawing down" down process. The gold is heated, quenched and taken through jewellery specific mills that bring the gold closer to the desired shape. As the correct thickness becomes closer the gold is measured and marked in the appropriate place to bend and solder into place.
Once marked the piece is folded up and soldered where it is then filed and given a rough polish. Finishing file to bring shape, then, the fine 18ct yellow gold is tempered and strengthened in it's place. Then we accentuate with deep black ruthenium. Highly polished and made sure it is perfectly balanced.
Then given it's final quality check, packaged and sent to you.
