Hi All, I have some pictures of a ring from Pakistan that one of the
managers brought back from her last trip. It is made with twisted
gold wire and granulation, and each of the granules has a “V” in the
top of the granule. It makes the ring sparkle and reflects light
almost like diamonds.
http://www.rocksmyth.com/granulation are sample pictures.
I am trying to determine how these “V”'s are made. After looking at
several rings, it would be almost impossible to get each “V” at the
same depth and in the same alignment as the others using a graver.
Is it possible this is done with a tool like a cap burr with a knife
edge in the top?
If anyone has seen these being made or has any ideas or pictures of
this process, I’d love to be enlightened.
thanks Love and God Bless -randy smith
