Some of you may interested in how those S925 sterling silver jewelry are made, as the wholesaler and with more than 8 years experience in jewelry export business, here are main process about how sterling silver jewelry are made from our production line.
First of all, there are 2 main ways to make sterling silver jewelry.
- First way is by hand, manually work need for almost all the process, there are lot of studios manually make sterling silver jewelry, and I’d like to call them artisan, they should really love this work.
- The second is most of works are made by machines, since our production line only make sterling silver jewelries by machines, which production capacity is much bigger, and also the cost the much lower, and we only brief you the second way here.
The main process sterling silver jewelry made by machines are:
2) Make the computer drawing and use machines to make the prototype, this prototype normally will be made by zinc alloy, this iron is soft and easy to carving;
3) Use the metal prototype as the mold to make wax mold, the qty of the wax mold will be same with the qty you want to make as bulk;
4) If this item are designed with small cubic zirconia paved, then set the stones in the wax mold;
5) Many pieces of wax models will stick to a centre wax rod by hot-iron, we call this wax tree;
6) Make plaster mold, and the wax tree will be in the mold;
7) Sterling silver casting, pour the silver liquid into the plaster mold, the wax in the mold will be melted by hot silver liquid, and the silver will take place;
8) Get the silver casting out of mold and do the inspection and polish …
9) If this style are designed with several styles connected, then connect it manually, then soldering and polish the gap;
The above photo are for brass jewelry, but same way to make silver one, just for your reference.
10) Fix the big stones if have such design;
11) Send for plating, row color is not shiny, normally for sterling silver jewelry, real gold will be plated on it, that means inside is sterling silver, and the outside is real gold, color will be gold, rose gold, rhodium. And QC after back from plating.
12) Packing; none brand packing, or some customers would like to do their own packing way like the packing cards with their own brand on it.
