For the best customer experience and jewelry manufacturing services in New York City, turn to Frank Billanti Casting Co. They offer high-quality craftsmanship while providing competitive pricing for every piece of jewelry you order. Their jewelers specialize in casting, model making, mold making, jewelry assembly, stone setting, and electroplating.

Here’s what you need to know about jewelry manufacturing:

  • Design Type: Jewelry manufacturing offers a wide range of possibilities. Whether you’re seeking beaded jewelry, assembled (handmade) jewelry, or a ring set with precious stones, start with choosing your design and specifications.

  • Model Making:  The next step is to bring your jewelry design into reality. Experienced wax carvers, CAD designers, or jewelers can create your model with extreme precision.

  • Casting: Once you’ve decided on the design, your manufacturer- Frank Billanti Casting Company- will create a casted replica of the model, and then clean it to make a mold. The mold will be used in the casting process, where the waxes obtained from the mold will become the casted metals of your choice.

  • Finishing Process: The casting will then go through several stages of finishing. Jewelers will first remove the sprue and smooth out the surface with tumbling machines. Next, the hinges and unique closures will be assembled according if necessary, and pre-polishing work is done.

  • jewelry manufacturerStone Setting: At this stage, the jeweler will fit the gemstones of your choice into the finished piece using the appropriate stone setting technique. The jewelry manufacturer may require you to supply your own stones.

  • Polishing Stage: The last stage in production is polishing. Specialist polishers will give your piece of jewelry a smooth finish based on your requirements and desired finish. You may choose from light buff, buff, shiny polished, or matte polished.

  • Digital Technology: Frank Billanti Casting also offers an optional step called electroplating, or the process of coating your design with a precious metal. This brand-new technology can add a layer of gold, rose gold, rhodium, or silver to your piece.
