Design Accents

Filigree design elements on a ring.

Filigree

This is a technique where very tiny curls of metal are formed out of wire and then soldered into place, usually in an open panel.

Pave

Also known as micro-pave, pave a way of setting tiny diamonds side-by-side or in clusters to give a piece of jewelry a sparkly textured look. This sparkle is partly the diamonds, but it is also from the way the metal is cut away around the stones that adds to the shine. These diamonds are ethically sourced from Canada or re-purposed from estate jewelry.

design-accents--engraving

Engraving

Usually this is the final embellishment that is added to a piece of jewelry. This is a process involves cutting away metal with extremely sharp tools to traditionally form scroll or leaf patterns. This is the best way to achieve a picture or a pattern in the metal.

Letter Engraving

This is the perfect technique if you are looking to add a message to the inside of your ring or the back of a pendant. All of our letter engraving, also known as "inside engraving" is done by hand in a script font style.

Texture is one of our design considerations.

Texture

Texture happens by making repeated markings on the surface of the metal and shouldn't be confused with final finish. Finish is a surface treatment that gives the metal a polished or matte look. Texture on the other hand is more permanent in its mark. There are so many to choose from and many more to discover.
