9ct White Gold Mountain Ring, Organic Wedding Ring, 5mm.
This Ring is created by hand carving a sand mould. The carving is inspired by the beauty of a mountain range, hence the name.
After the hot liquid metal has been poured into the sand the ring then undergoes a series of refinement to leave the overall look distinctive and interesting, yet subtle and beautiful.
This piece is very sculptural and also a 5mm band, meaning that it is a traditional size and shape for a classic wedding band.
Even though your ring is hand crafted and uniquely sculpted, the outcome is very consistent so the ring you receive will be very close to the images above.

9ct Mountain Ring 5mm White Gold
Your ring starts life as small recycled pieces known as casting grain.
I will then prepare a former (master) of your ring, the right size and shape but made out of wax or wood.
Then I will prepare a sand mould around the master and shape a pouring point and some air let holes (sprues)
After carefully removing the master, I heat up your chosen metal in a ceramic pot (crucible). When the metal is a glowing liquid, I will then pour it into the mould.
When it has cooled, your ring is then cleaned up (fettled) and refined. At this point depending on what design has been asked for, I may put the ring through another process to shape or size or refine it further.
When I am happy that your ring sits nicely on the finger and feels comfortable I will polish out the middle. The last stage is an ultrasonic cleaning before your ring is on its way to you.
(All gold orders will be sent to London for a metal finnes test and have the UK full standard mark applied)
Made for you, by me.
