Note to paragraph (a): As used herein, “raw materials” include bulk sheet, strip, wire, and similar items that have not been cut, shaped, or formed into jewelry parts, semi-finished parts, or blanks.

  • Most Jewelers today use the same technology crafting jewelry, wax molding and casting.
    The results is the same copy again and again thee metal is heated only once is not hammered at all the results is a weak gold. It will not hold for many years. It is not handmade.
  • Real Handcrafted Jewelry is different from the mass produced jewelries and is used by the high end jewelers who make jewelry that will last generations.
  • In the traditional jewelry handmade crafting the gold is hammered, heated and shaped again and again and again resulting in metal that is very dense and will last for generations passing from mother to daughter.
  • Some of our rings are crafted for women who Inherited a diamond or a colored gemstone and ask us to build a new ring for the stone.
  • To design I use the most advanced 3D technology you will see the model with as many changes you want and after we will craft it by hand to the highest quality.
