Stacking Up

 

For this project we tacked three different bands together and bezel set a diamond in the center band. We first drilled a hole in the plain yellow gold band, image one. Next, we placed the diamond in the white gold bezel and soldered them to the yellow gold band, image two. Lastly, we tacked two white gold diamond bands to each side of the yellow gold band and polished up the ring, image three.

The Perfect Fit

 

In this project we sized this 14kt. gold ring up three sizes. We first needed to cut the ring and insert in a piece of gold. You can see this step in image one. Once the sizing process was complete, image two, we needed to buff out all of the scratches and polish the ring. The final product can be viewed in image three. After we delivered the ring to the customer, he could not even tell where the ring has been sized at.

Putting it All Together

 

The initial break down of the ring can be viewed in image one. In this image you can see the stone that was being mounted, the mounting/head, and the band. The first step of the re-mounting process can be viewed in image two and three. This is where we soldered the mounting/head to the band. The second step, displayed in image four, shows the setting of the stone in the mounting/head. During this step we must groove the prongs of the mounting just right so that the stone will be secure. Lastly, we tightened the prongs around the stone and the ring was ready to go.

Replacing the Bottom Shank

 

Due to normal wear and tear over many years rings can become paper thin in the bottom section. For this customer we needed to replace to bottom section because it was so thin it broke, image one. Above is the step by step process of how we replace the bottom shank of the ring. First, we curve a gold bar in the shape of the original shank, images one, two, and three. Secondly, we cut off the original shank, image four. Finally, we flowed the gold between the original ring and the new shank together to create a seamless new shank, image five.

 

Broken in Two

 

Surprisingly, this ring actually broke in two different locations as seen in images one, two, and three. Breaks like this one can be caused by manufacturing defects. One such defect occurs when an air bubble within the mounting forms as the gold or platinum is being casted. The repair process can be quite extensive, however, the final product is flawless.

Bullet Creations

 

This project was very difficult, yet very unique. We first cut off the ends of two bullets. Since bullets are extremely dense cutting them perfectly straight was a challenge. Once sawed off we epoxied the tie tack pin on to the bullet end and linked a chain to the base of the tie tack. Both images are of the final product.

From a Ring to Pendant

 

For this project we first needed to decide how we would transform the ring into a pendant. We were limited in our designs, in fear of the black onyx cracking while removing it from the mounting. We began by cutting off the bottom of the shank, as viewed in image two. Next, we curved the gold edge to create a bail large enough for a chain to run though. The finals product is displayed in image three.

Antique Remount

 

This project's break down can be viewed in image one. We had three diamonds, a vintage mounting, and a white gold illusion head. Illusion heads are used to help illuminate the diamond and cause it to appear larger. We first soldered the illusion head to the mounting, as viewed in image two. Next, we set the two smaller diamonds on each side of the illusion head, as viewed in image three and four. Lastly we set the largest diamond which was a miners cut, in the illusion head. The finished ring can be seen in image five and six.
