< I’m considering Quality Casting for my next model. Any advice
I use them for platinum only. They are quick and good. They are
a factory and won’t care as much about your peice as you do. For
example this week I got a platinum/cobalt casting back, a bezel
setting for a 2.5ct diamond on a fancy, wide band,it had to be
exactly 6.5 mm wide. It was pretty thick (customer request) and I
was concerned about pitting, so I asked them to make a mold of
the wax ($25.00) to be sure of good results. When I got it back
they had cast the wax from the mold not the original (they
returned the original), it was slightly more narrow than the
original. I was a little irritated because it may end up slightly
less than the required 6.5mm. I don’t have time to return. We
usually have no problems.
My point is if you want it done right, do it yourself. If thats
not possible, try to idiot proof it.
