Így készülnek az ékszerek:

The making of every piece of jewellery starts with fire: the melting.
At this part, we melt together the gold alloys of adequate colours and amounts preparing the material for further work.

The shine of molten gold is like none other!

After the melting, we proceed with shaping the gold using flattening, so it becomes just right in width and girth, and its structure is perfect. From this state, we hammer it, we bend it, saw it and rasp it – so that sooner or later it can become a ring.

During the cutting the item gains its final proportions.

The different pieces of gold we weld together roughly, which happens at a high temperature –
close to the melting point of gold itself, and it keeps the smaller pieces sturdily together.

Again, the fire: before it is complete, a piece of jewellery needs to be heated up many times.

During the shaping of the item, we use more and more detailed methods, more and more delicate handheld tools to work on the metal, so that its surface can become perfectly smooth – making it possible to wear a perfect item at the end of this whole procedure.

The point and the beautiful outcome always stem from the details.

It is not sufficient enough to look at the items with bare eyes as we are unable to see the details. During the creation we always wear 10x magnifying glasses; but for some tasks, even this is insufficient.

Using microscopes, we can zoom in at the item 50 times better!

Without the microscope, it would be impossible to reach that rich detail a baroque engravimg demands,
or what a tiny gemstone requires to be socketed.

Years of practice, a sure hand and deep concentration is needed to make these details.

Socketing the stones is not done with glue, contrary to popular belief. The place of the stone is being made right into the gold, precisely, and then we use adequate steel tools to work the metal onto the stone, so that they remain in place, sturdily.

Utmost caution is required with these stones. They are delicate and one wrong move can shatter them.

The final and most spectacular part is polishing the item, which happens in multiple steps, too. We use polishing pastes of larger and larger particles, more and more delicate, to ensure all little bits of the item is polished.

After thorough water cleaning that comes right after the polishing, the piece awaits the big moment in its box.

In our workshop crafting happens with great care and concentration, and so, it is a must that we take a break hourly. It is during this break we discuss problems or obstacles present during the current project. But, of course, joking around is not out of the question! :-)

Making the items is always preceded by a gathering and a discussion, all in order to get the best outcome.

 

On the following pages, our dear guests shall take a look into our jewellery workshop with a few thoughts and photographs.

Many were curious about the methods jewellery were made with, what mysterious technical tricks we use behind the scenes. 
In our jewellery workshop, material refining is done with original, traditional handiwork techniques.
We do not neglect the modern technology of our days, either. With the newer equipment and methods, we strive to complete our manufacture’s possibilities, so that our works turn out to be even better than the last ones.

The last 20 years introduced a great deal of changes on every field, including jewellery work in our country. Machines usually used by German and Italian jewellers became much more accessible to us, and so did materials, tools and other useful items.

These newly acquired techniques put such tools into the hands of an experienced jeweller that allowed them to carry out works never even thought of before – also, the known forms and features became much easier to perfect and polish. Naturally, these new things cannot be used without an experienced, thoughtful craftsman, who can expand his or her creativity via all these.

On the pictures above, it is apparent how the century-old work methods are completed by modern smelting equipment, polishing, socketing tools, or the most precise of microscopes.
We hope that we could ignite your interest towards not only our jewellery, but our work too!
