The more I think on this PMC wedding ring issue, the more I think
that making a prototype and having it sent out to be cast in
something more durable is best after all. I’ve looked into all the
options for making it myself and they all seem to have issues,
usually the “too soft” thing.
My problem seems to be in finding a jewelry casting service that
will handle individual orders. Most of them seem to be aimed at
customers with large orders, who are orderign more than one of the
same thing. I’ve emailed three or four companies about the ring, but
no one has replied to me so far. So I put the question here.
~ Does anyone here do metal casting for small orders - namely, a
~ If so, will you be able to make a mold from the prototype, if I
send it to you?
~ Also, do you offer gemstone-setting services, or can you allow
for a gypsy or flush-mount setting for five stones so I can have
them mounted here?
~ What white metals do you offer that do NOT contain any nickel?
~ Can you provide a quote for the services, from wax to cast to
gem setting (if applicable) and the costs for the materials? I
know he would prefer silver, but if you offer white metals that
are nickel-free and more durable, I’d like prices for those
metals as well.
If anyone can heme out with this, or at least provide a viable
company for me to look into, I would REALLY appreciate it.
