The final stage of the production process includes adding texture and detailing if requested.
There are many types of surface finishes used on jewelry, ranging from a high polish to a coarse hammered background. We use bead blasting equipment, emery cloths, files, hammers and numerous specialty tools to apply a wide variety of finishes and surface treatments.
Antiquing, or blackening of the background area, and enameling can be used to create specialized effects. Before quality marking, we double and triple check all details of the design to ensure all instructions have been meticulously followed, the design is well executed and your piece is perfect as it can be!
All of our designs are then quality marked (signed) giving our assurance of the fineness of the metal. Karat or fineness is the ratio of precious metal and other alloys used.
