Behind the Scenes: Two Tone Wedding Band September 21 2016

We recently had the pleasure of making this lovely white gold and rose gold wedding band! The process was a bit difficult, but in the end, it came out perfectly!

The main challenge was getting the two pieces to fit together perfectly so that the solder would flow evenly to join the two pieces of metal with a perfect seam. It may be hard to tell from the photo, but the joining surface is curved, not flat!! We managed this challenge by 3d modelling the two parts and printing them in wax already in ring form. With some very meticulous hand-finishing, this meant that the surfaces would fit together with extreme accuracy. The soldering still took a while, but the result was successful!

After the two pieces were soldered together, we filed and polished them before adding the hammered texture. Another final polish and voilà!!
