Precious Metals Casting:
We do Precious
Metals Casting Service in 10K, 14K, 18K (yellow,
white, rose, green) gold and sterling silver, platinum.
Al our work has a fast turnaround at competitive
prices. Quality is our main concern. No piece leaves
our service cneter without going through our rigerous
quality control department.
Our services range from a single process to a start to finish solution in private label jewelry manufacturing.
Whether it's a one of a kind, one piece special order or production of thousands of pieces from filigree to buckles, ask for consultation so that we ma privide you with the best castings.
Because of the high cost of rapid
prototyping equipment and the high level of
technical expertise required to reliably produce
perfect parts, the trend is to use specialized third-party
We offer reduced time and cost for jewelry designers
and their clients with state-of-the-art technology.
Our machines build wax models from computer files
using thermoplastics that are perfect components
for investment casting. See

In the past jewelry design was greatly hindered
by difficult communication between the customer
and the jeweler. The only option for executing a
jewelry design was looking through a stock jewelry
design catalogue. Whenever the customer had a vision
or idea which was not realized in the finished piece
of jewelry the sale became very difficult.
With the aid of computer aided design (cad) model
making has taken a wonderful new direction. With
us jewelry stores and jewelry customers can actually
see their idea before the creation stage. Other
important benefits to cad jewelry design is accuracy
and affordability. Your jewelry
design can now be manufactured with incredible
symmetry because the wax model is created using
our in house rapid prototyping (rp) machines.
Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by translating
CAD Designs into hard copy 3D models. These models
are so accurate that designers can go beyond concept
modeling to produce tooling grade patterns ready
for casting or mold-making.
Jointly CAD/CAM allows the design of jewelry using
a computer (CAD) and creates an exact hard copy
model of a jewelry piece using a computer controlled
manufacturing device (CAM). Our technicians utilize
all file types compatible with any CAM device, which
allows us to quickly generate a precise wax model
ready for casting.
Stereolithography and these other hard model technologies
are the future of the jewelry industry. Leading
jewelers effectively use CAM "service bureaus"
that specialize in prototype output.
Our technicians have been in the jewelry business
since 1983, operating in various branches of the
industry. We are some of the finest jewelry manufacturers
and jewelers in the industry and do as well precious
For platinum, gold, and silver jewellery there
are many techniques to create finishes. The most
common are high-polish, satin/matte, brushed, and
hammered. High-polished jewellery is by far the
most common and gives the metal the highly-reflective
and shiny look. Satin, or matte finish reduces the
shine and reflection of the jewellery and is commonly
used to accentuate gemstones such as diamonds. Brushed
finishes give the jewellery a textured look, and
are created by brushing a material (similar to sandpaper)
against the metal, leaving 'brush strokes'. Hammered
finishes are typically created by using a soft,
rounded hammer and hammering the jewellery to give
it a wavy texture.
Some jewellery is plated to give it a shiny, reflective
look or to achieve a desired colour. Sterling silver
jewellery may be plated with a thin layer of .999
fine silver (a process known as flashing) or may
be plated with rhodium or gold. Base metal costume
jewellery may also be plated with silver, gold,
or rhodium for a more attractive finish.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
the jewelry manufacturing process from start to
finish, we deliver quality.
