Your jewel step by step !
1. The design, the origin of the jewelry
The drawing is the very first step in the making of a jewel. Our designers think and draw the sketch of the piece to be made. It is then modeled by computer to see how the model supports the physical constraints. Once the piece is realized, the finishing touches are made.
2. The creation, the wax model
A wax model of the design is then created. This prototype represents the jewel in its exact proportions with the places reserved for the precious or fine stones that have been selected
3. The making of the jewel, the dream comes to life
The validated wax prototype is then sent to our manufacturing facilities to be transformed into jewelry. It is here that our jewelers make the mold from the wax model. The precious alloy is then poured into the mold, then cooled, to shape the body of the jewel. The raw creation will be soldered and filed by our goldsmiths before passing through the hands of a setter.
4. The setting, know-how, mastery and dexterity
The setting is a meticulous work which consists in fixing the gemstone according to various processes, in a small cavity called “the bezel”, before folding back the claws (or others) which surrounds it so that it is maintained.
5. Polishing and rhodium plating, sublimate your jewelry
At this stage, the work of our jewelers consists of eliminating all visible traces left by the previous stages of manufacturing. To do this, the piece will pass through several machines, then be brushed and embalmed with polishing paste. Once the polishing is completed, if the jewel is made of white gold or platinum, it will be immersed in a bath of rhodium for a few minutes, in order to freeze, whiten and reinforce its white shine.
