1. Selection of the stone
All our creations are made in a Parisian workshop and meet the criteria of requirement of the Jewelry made in France. The selection of the stones: Whether you are in possession of a stone or you are looking for a unique stone, our first meeting will serve to choose the stone or stones that will be the basis of our work!

2. Drawing and Modeling
Based on our first meeting and according to precise specifications, Julie will submit to you a felt-tip or "gouache" drawing of the necklace, bracelet or unique ring that will be made for you. This will allow you to visualize the jewel at best.
3. Wax model
Whether it is in wax or directly in metal, the model is the basis of your future jewel. Made according to the design of your choice, it includes the dimensions and the locations necessary for the fine and/or precious stones and diamonds that will be added later during the setting stage.
When a piece of jewelry comes out of the casting stage, the metal is in its raw state: its surface is not smooth and has many imperfections that must be corrected before the final result is obtained!
4. Setting your jewelry
To decorate and adorn your jewel with fine or precious stones (diamond, sapphire, ruby, emerald, tourmaline, garnet, Tanzanite, opal.....), it is the craftsman setter who enters the scene. According to your wishes, he will opt for a closed setting, a claw setting, a massé or a paving.

Because your jewel is unique, there are many finishes to be applied just before the last step of polishing: hammering or brushing for a material effect, external or internal engravings for a personalization of the jewel: all finishes are possible.
Finally, the last step of the jewel, polishing, sometimes completed by a white rhodium plating for white gold jewels, will make your jewel shiny.
