The eagle is a mythological animal, used since the time of the Egyptians to symbolize the power of the gods or mysticism.

Chosen by the Romans, the Byzantines, Napoleon, the Russians empire or even the Nazis as an emblem to symbolize the power of their empire, the eagle, like the lion, is used in heraldry for family seals.

Even today, the eagle is used by the USA, Poland, and Mexico as an emblem of their nation.

Here you will find a detailed explanation of the symbolism of the heraldic eagle.

The men signet rings presented here are custom made in gold or silver for our clients following their requirement. Their creation is being described hereafter.

Eagle signet ring using a family emblem

This is a ring we had the opportunity to make both in white and yellow 18k gold, as you can see.

For this project, we started from the emblem drawing of our client to make a 3D modeling of his eagle design on the plateau of the signet ring.

The reduction in size makes that one loses details of the drawing. To give an order of idea, the letters of the text will ultimately only a millimeter in height.

We also retouched the ends of the banner where the text is written to simplify the design which was not very visible once embossed.

We thus obtain a virtual sketch that allows us to have a good idea of the final rendering of our project.

Following this first phase, synthesizing the needs of the customer and what we can do in terms of details, the design is frozen to go into manufacturing workshop.

First, we print a wax master of the future ring which will then be used to make the mold in which the gold will be poured. We can see here drafts of the plate of the signet ring and realize the rendering of the engraving in relief of the drawing.

You may notice that the engraved text remains readable despite the smallness of the letters.

Then we go to the actual manufacturing, we use our master to make a plaster mold in which is cast our molten gold.

This ring is much bigger, much heavier and set with 84 small diamonds and 1 main princess cut diamond on the top.

This ring is from our gold signet ring collection so we will not detail the design, just the making process, quite a time consuming, of this ring.

Made of gold

Like the precedent ring, this one is design with CAD software and the 4 parts of the ring are the 3D printed before making each part in 18k gold.

This ring is made in yellow gold for the eagle and inner ring and in white gold for the external body of the ring and the plate under the eagle.

Here you can see those part rough from the casting process.

Although the assembling process of the ring is quite long, the main task for this ring lies in setting the numerous diamonds on it.

These are 84 small diamonds coming in 4 different sizes that are set in place and the main princess cut diamond at the end.

With computerized rending tools, we have a better idea of the finish aspect of this ring once made in silver.

We 3D printed this model in wax for making this ring in sterling silver using the lost wax casting process to obtain the rough silver part visible here.
