Lately I''ve become curious about jewelry-making techniques. Do you know how most rings/settings are manufactured? Are they cast? Die-struck? Hand-forged? A combination?



Do you know which alloys they choose to use and why?

I would be curious to learn more about the big names, e.g, Tiffany, Cartier, as well as brands like Stuller, and also more boutique-y designers like Ritani, Vatche, and the indie designers that are so popular on PS, like Leon Mege, Maytal Hannah, and Mark Morrell.

Please share your knowledge!
