Emerying & Abrasives
The foundations of the final look are set in this stage. This part of the process is therefore integral to achieve the ideal finish. We begin with de-sprueing and de-burring the piece to of any large rough areas or inconsistencies. We then go over the surface with emery and a series of abrasives to prepare the raw silver for the polish. After the general surface improvement has been made to the ring, we will oxidise the ring in Liver of Sulphur, which will darken the ring and to ultimately enhance design elements in the piece. This is seen in the blackened areas within certain parts of the design.
