craftsmanship

At Waldemar Jewellers, craftsmanship is extremely important to us and no piece will leave our studio unless we are 100% happy with the final piece created.

The are two ways we craft our rings and fine jewellery: (1) completely handmade and (2) CAD designed then hand-finished.

Handmade

This method is the traditional way jewellery has been crafted through the generations. Unfortunately, with the advancements in technology, it is now a dying art form.

Our master jewellers will start with stock gauge pieces of metal and forge the metal to the specific design. This involved very precise milling of the metals, manipulating the form and shape through bending, hammering, filling and cutting with a saw frame. The connecting of individual parts is done by soldering with blow touches.

Please watch our video example of this methodology.

CAD – Hand finished

With the advance technology that we have nowadays, it is possible to design pieces of jewellery through 3D CAD programs such as the likes of Matrix and Rhino.

This process adds value to the client because it allows the client to see a realistic 3D drawing of the piece before we start to craft the item.

At Waldemar Jewellers, we start by breaking down a jewellery into multiple components to allow our jewellers and craftsmen to fully clean up each part before the assembly. This way, you are assured of a high-quality and polished finish.

These components are printed in wax using rapid prototyping. It is a technique used to fabricate a physical part or assembly using 3D CAD data.

The wax pieces are then cast in gold/ platinum using lost-wax casting process. Lost–wax process is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model.

Once we have the metal components, they are sent to our master jewellers for clean-up and assembly.

Setting

After clean up and assembly, the item is then sent to our setter. Setting requires a specific and specialised skill to enable a setter to cut into the diamonds/gemstones and secure them into the setting of the gemstone. The setting of gemstones utilizes basic categories of styles and techniques like prong setting, bezel setting, channel setting and bead setting.

Some jewellers may complete the piece all by themselves; however, we believe in only using the most qualified craftsman at each step of the process to ensure that each jewellery is finished with only the highest quality you deserve.

Polishing

Once the piece has been created, assembled and set, it needs to be professionally polished. This involves using different grades of mops on a polishing motor resulting in a highly polished finish.

When the jewelry polishing is complete and all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, a jeweler can apply any chemical finishes needed such as rhodium plating, or antique patinas. It is the artistic skills of the jewelry polishing team that brings out the shine and lustrous finish to your jewellery.

What our customers say

See for yourself what some of our very happy customers say about Waldemar Jewellers.

"I highly recommend Waldemar Jewellers to anyone who is looking to buy a custom jewellery. I am grateful that Mark was able to make me feel at ease despite the enormity of shopping for an engagement ring. He was very patient with me and did not rush me into buying. My fiancee was over the moon with her ring to this day. Thanks so much, Mark!"

David Jackson

We've loved working with Mark to create my engagement ring and our wedding bands. We couldn't be happier with the service. My engagement ring design is Mark's signature design and it is absolutely stunning! Thanks so much Mark!

Kat and Chris

“My partner and I had not heard of Waldemar Jewellers before. We were a bit worried going through someone we had never heard of, but Waldemar Jewellers delivered to absolute perfection. So many people stop to admire their fabulous work. You will be in great hands if you choose these guys!”

Estelle

"Great service! Mark was great at guiding me through the process of getting my fiancée an engagement ring. There was no pressure to buy. I looked elsewhere to get other opinions and when I decided to work with them, they were even happy I did because they were assured that I'm all in. All the stones they offered me were GIA-certified — not 2nd hand or local resellers. Thanks, Mark!"

Gino

“I really appreciated the effort to really understand what we wanted, to take my personality and style into consideration and to find us a diamond which was outstanding within the budget we had outlined. The craftsmanship on the final design was perfect and we couldn’t be happier. So pleased to have found a family jeweller we can trust and have such confidence in. Thank you!”
