THE PRODUCTION PROCESS
Balancing innovative technology with traditional techniques of ancient metal casting, Buy A Stone rings require the latest technologies of modern 3D printing to capture the complexity of the lattice designs.
The intersecting lines form enclosures, making the rings impossible to manufacture using common methods of molding. Instead, each metal ring begins as a wax ring that is printed using a high precision 3D printer. Taking hours to print, this unique 3D printer creates layers of two different materials, one material is support, and the other comprises the castable wax ring. After heating, the support material melts away to reveal the delicate wax ring.
The wax ring is then cast using an ancient "lost-wax" casting technique, in which the wax ring is placed in an investment plaster to create a single-use mold. Using a centrifuge, the molten metal is forced into the mold to fill every intricate intersection. Each ring is then finished by hand.
Mark Stone has been in the jewelry industry since 1992. Since then, he has been selling custom jewelry to stores and clients around the United States. He creates unique custom pieces by leveraging the latest in CAD-CAM technology and his process begins when you send him a sketch or photo of the piece you desire. This sketch or photo can be sent via email or delivered in person. Once you've agreed on the vision, a 3D rendering will be sent back to you for any changes. Once Mark has your approval, the wax is grown, the piece is casted, and then the stones are set. Most pieces are completed within two weeks.
