After your wax model is meticulously created it is then attached to a sprue tree. The sprue tree may contain more than one of our rings, if the same alloy is being utilised for multiple designs.
The sprue tree with your beautiful wax model is then placed into a flask, which is filled with a plaster-like substance called investment. The flask is then vacuum treated to ensure that no air pockets compromise the quality of the cast. The flask is then placed in a kiln and baked at 1000 degrees, melting the wax. All that is left is a hollow impression of your dream ring.
This is referred to as the lost wax process. We then pour your chosen molten metal into the flask. Once cooled, the sprue is removed from the flask and we can begin the de-spruing process. Significant quality control checks are performed throughout the entirety of the casting process.
We begin by tidying and pre-polishing your ring from the extensive casting process. We then begin the meticulous stone setting process. Each moissanite or cultured diamond is seated in place and secured with prongs and requires the utmost care and precision.
After the stone setting has been completed, we complete the final polishing of your ring. From here we perform extensive final quality control checks.
Your beautiful ring leaves our hands, and is ready to become forever yours.
