Finishing & Quality Control
The Final stage, polishing. This is done on polishing wheels impregnated with polishing compounds such as jewelers rouge.
We pride ourselves on high levels of polish, with low levels of wastage; which is why this task is skillfully done by hand one piece at a time.
For white gold jewelry we use a Rhodium based solution to electroplate the finished jewelry. Rhodium is a metal ten times as costly as gold. It is not a feasible material to make solid jewelry from because it is too stressed and brittle, but rhodium is fabulous as a plating for jewelry because it is glitteringly, dazzlingly, white and mirror-like.
