Lizard ring

The salamander is a mythological animal, known in antiquity to live in the midst of flames.

This is certainly the case of our engraved ring of a salamander that took shape in a molten silver bath at more than 900 ° C.

This solid silver ring, represents a lizard on the top of the ring, engraved crossing through the ring.

This is a men's ring 10 mm wide and weighting 8 grams.

The story of this jewel begins with the realization last year of a lizard-shaped ring that a customer asked us to do to make his request for engagement.

This time, it was his wife who asked us to take over the design of the salamander to make an engraved ring of the animal for his spouse.

To stay closer to the design, we modeled the ring by CAD and then printed it in 3D.

After the melting operation, we get our solid silver ring in its raw state. Notice how well the shape of the animal is visible. We see the details of the printing layers that are only 30 microns thick.
