Casting, refining and polishing for one ring

Once you’ve carved your ring from the wax blank, pop it in the reply-paid envelope provided and send it back to us for casting, refining and polishing. If you choose gold plated as your ring finish, plating will also be included.

Casted ring sent back to you

In your pack you'll find a postage-paid envelope to send your ring back for casting. Once it's casted, refined and polished, we'll send the finished ring back to you and cover all shipping costs.

Video tutorials

If written instructions just aren't for you, you'll also get access to video tutorials that describe each step of the process in extra detail.

NOTE: For customers outside of Australia

We do ship our packs internationally. However, if you are outside of Australia you will need to send us your ring using your own shipping method. Unfortunately we can't organise reply-paid postage from other countries.

How it works

1.

You design a ring and carve it from jewellers' wax using the tools provided. You then send it to us for casting, refining and polishing.

2.

We make a mold using the ring you've sent us. (pictured is several rings ready to be cast)

3.

We cast the ring by pouring molten metal into the mold. The metal replaces the wax and the result is a perfect replica of the wax ring you created.

4.

When your ring is released, we remove the sprue (the small attachment left over from casting) and refine it.

5.

We also machine polish your ring so that it is ready to wear! (You can also do this yourself if you prefer, we have video tutorials.)
