Then the work is carefully formed, or forged
and checked for correct form lines. Any
soldering is completed and the work is ready
for hand-polishing. Most gold jewellery is
made by the rubber mould casting process,
machine die-striking, or electro-forming.
There are many multiples made at once.
Casting produces jewellery with a less
dense, more porous consistency than
hand-rolled gold or pulled gold wire. The
die-struck pieces are usually punched out
of very thin stock, while electro-formed jewellery is basically hollow, and subject to denting. These kinds of jewellery are often tumbled in mass quantities for the final finish. This is why, in comparison, our hand-made pieces are durable and unique! Feel free to e-mail us with any questions about our work.
