If you are considering platinum casting, here are a few things to keep in mind about the process:
- The process begins with a wax model and casting preparation – If you are looking to have a piece of platinum jewelry designed, the first step will be to create a wax model to show you what the finished piece will look like.
- Prior to platinum being poured into the mold, a few things need to happen – Once we have the wax model, we pour an investment material into the mold that will be the platinum when all is said and done. This is a very important step, as the investment material we use must replicate platinum and withstand the high heat at which platinum can melt.
- The investment material will serve as the mold – Before we can pour the platinum into the mold, the original wax model must be ‘burned out’. During this step we melt all the wax out, leaving the investment material to serve as the final mold.
- Finally, the casting – Working with platinum requires specialized training and a specific technique. We must control the flow of metal into the final mold, which requires various tools and methods in order to ensure nothing goes wrong with the casting.
Platinum casting requires specialized knowledge and the right equipment, both of which Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting has. Platinum is a beautiful metal, but it can also be quite difficult to work with. Here at Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting, we have access to cutting-edge technology and the tools necessary to create beautiful pieces of platinum jewelry.
Gold casting is another service provided by Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting and our talented team of designers and developers. Gold casting gives our team the opportunity to take a design, create a mold, and end up with a finished product that is an exact replica of the initial sketch. The process for gold casting is quite similar to platinum casting, with a few small differences. The main difference comes during the melting phase. Depending on the type of gold you are using (white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold) the melting temperature will range from 1,617 degrees Fahrenheit to 2,006 degrees Fahrenheit. This is just one reason why it is important to use an experienced casting company like Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting, as we will ensure your gold is melted at the right temperature for the alloy.
