Men usually wear fewer rings, but tend to choose big pure gold rings or signet rings (fr).

We present in this article the creation of a large rectangular ring topped with silver initials.

Big rings like this one are quite heavy, so choosing 14-karat gold is a good option to limit the gold weight and the cost of a ring.

Compared to an identical 18-karat gold ring, the choice of 14-karat gold saves almost 5 grams of 24-karat gold.

For a total weight of around 23 grams, the 14-karat gold weight is nearly 20 grams.

This ring has a large flat plate on which are welded two interlaced N silver. It has been made to measure through our online ring creation service.

Project design

This project is inspired by this other design of big silver double ring for men.

Our work begins with the design of the ring.

This CAD modeling step allows us to freeze dimensions, visualize ring volumes and accurately estimate the gold weight of our ring project.

Once the design is validated by the client, we can go to work with gold and silver.

Manufacture of 14-karat gold pieces 

It begins with the manufacture of metal strips to make the walls of the hollow cube receiving the silver letters.

A large 14-karat gold wire is rolled to obtain a gold strip.

This gold band is then cut and folded to form a right angle.

The repeated operation allows us to form a square, base of the cube that will be mounted on the ring ring.

We then laminate a block of gold to obtain a plate, on which we will weld the cube manufactured before.

We then have to cut the excess of the plate.

We then realize the ring of the ring, from another gold band that is bent and welded to obtain a ring of the right dimensions.

Our gold pieces making up the ring are now ready.

The ring of the ring and the cube receiving the letters are manufactured

We can then move on to making silver letters.

Making silver initials

Thanks to the numerical modeling of the ring project, we have already determined the font and the size of the initials. This 3D model is used to print a drawing of letters in size 1: 1.

It is glued on a 925 silver-plated plate for saw cutting.

We now have all the pieces constituting our ring ready to be assembled.

We can then weld our different pieces to each other, first the cube on the ring, then the silver letters on the gold cube.
