I am trying to find out if there are any companies that will
produce my charms using the gold filled process?! We currently
plate everything but want to take our charms and have them
produced in 14k gold filled. Is this an option anymore?
Some charms and items can be produced using the gold filled method.
Volume is one of the requirements due to the process of
manufacturing. Gold filled items are made from gold filled sheet.
This is basically Laminated metals through pressure / heat. So, the
processes that you can use to create jewelry items using gold filled
is Stamped, Rolled, formed… To do this requires stamping dies
and trim tools to be produced. We have done that for customers if you
require those services. If your designs can be produced this way, we
can help you… otherwise, we can produce your items using the lost
wax method and Vermeil plate them.
Most of the items we do for our customers are cast in various metals
and some designs are plated to various thickness. We do Vermeil gold
from 20mils to 120 mils in reasonable quantities. We can also plate
for you in various colors such as 14k /18k/ 22k and Rhodium.
Metals we cast through the Lost wax process are Sterling, Deox S88
Sterling, Deox S57 Sterling, Argentium, Pure Silver and Pink
Silver(looks like light copper). Platinum,10K gold to18K gold in
white, yellow, royal, green and red and 22K and 24K. Base metals
such as Bronze, white Bronze, Brass. Through another process using
large round rubber molds we produce various forms of lead free pewter
castings used for volume costume jewelry and figurines. Most costume
jewelry is also plated to various thickness and colors. If you can
use our services, Please contact us through our website.
