Step Four

Wax Model Consultation

Once the design & stone are approved we move forward with Wax Modelling. Your wax may be 3D Printed or hand carved, depending on the design, and will be ready within 2-4 weeks.

The wax model will be used to cast your finished piece of jewellery and provides a chance to evaluate whether changes are required. We allow for one minor adjustment and reprint at no additional cost. Once the model is approved we send your wax for casting!

*Additional wax models: $200 to $800 + tax each , depending on complexity
