The cross is a symbol both religious and secular.

Symbol for the Catholic Church, it's also used by the Knights Templar, Maltese, Celts and regions such as Occitania or Lorraine with the cross Occitan and the Cross of Lorraine.

In the case of this project, it's a signet ring for men (fr) of the American type with an Occitan cross at the top and side decorations inlaid with the initials of the recipient.

Making the ring design 

The project begins with 3D modeling in the form of a digital model of the design desired by the sponsor.

This step allows us to play on all the details of the personalized engraving and to present the rendering in a realistic way to our sponsor even before the launch in manufacturing, thus avoiding any error of communication on its expectations.

Manufacture of the silver ring

The transition from the digital mock-up to the silver ring is done using the modern tools of the jewelry workshop, namely the 3D printing and the millenary process of casting with lost wax.

Creation of the wax master

Once the design of the digital mock-up has been validated, the master of the ring can be made by 3D printing, this process allowing us to faithfully reproduce the design of the digital model.

The lost wax casting process

The ring is made by the lost wax casting process, from the wax model printed in 3D beforehand.

A refractory plaster mold is prepared with our wax model. Then once dry, it is heated to destroy the wax model that leaves an empty space in the mold.

This empty space takes exactly the form and details of our cross ring project.

The molten silver is then poured into the mold, the metal thus filling the cavity and taking the form of our signet ring.

Our wax mold allows us to obtain the casting rod visible below.

This video presents you quickly the steps of realization of such a mold and the casting of molten metal in the latter :

 

We can then go to the finishing, detailing and polishing of the ring to obtain this result.
