Product Story

The ring is constructed through a technique known as lost wax casting. Lost wax casting is a process of creating forms using wax through different types of treatments. This particular design is created by carving and filing wax away until the desired shape and design is reached. Once that happens the ring is then put into a steel canister surrounded by a plaster type of substance called investment. Once the investment has cured, it is then place into a kiln and heated to a high temperature which results in the wax melting and evaporating. This leaves behind a hollow shape within the investment. Next the silver is weighed out and placed into a crucible, heated until molten (resembles the look of mercury), then the steel canister in the bent arm centrifuge, all while still heating the silver to keep it in a liquid form. Once the steel canister is placed in the centrifuge behind the crucible, the arm is dropped and causes the canister to spin and force the molten silver into the hollow form. Once the steel canister cools a bit, it is dunked in water and the investment dissolves leaving behind the ring design. The sterling silver ring form is then cleaned up and polished to a shiny finish. This hollow form is only able to be used once as it dissolved in the water. Each ring made through this process is a one of a kind.
