Our technical staff are experts in abrasives and metal finishes. This knowledge is passed down to our production and design teams, who have developed a catalog of options based on the textures required. We offer more than 50 surface options from shiny to matte, carved, textured, embed, satin, water blast, semi-finished, aged looking and many others.
Please Note: Our catalog of surface fishes are examples of what we can do in metal finishing. These are real samples that the customer can touch / feel and see. To apply a chosen surface finish to production requires a deep analysis of number of pieces vs final results. Through our experience, some textures require to be embed in a master with consequential difference on final results.
Our team can help to choose the best solution for the customer needs explain and select the best application.
Color, cut, clarity and carat are standards for grading all gemstones. The four criteria carry different weight depending on whether they are applied to colored gemstones or colorless diamonds.
We also work with other materials. Glass and Synthetic stones are valued for their hard properties and are graded. They can provide luster and be faceted like any gemstone. A unique alternative for fashion.
All Felicia Design gemstones are sourced from trusted working partners.
We work with the following:
Gems come in two different styles, faceted and non-faceted gems. Faceted gems are gems with geometrically-shaped, flat polished faces. Non-faceted gems are not geometrically-shaped, flat polished faces.
Style, cut, shape and quality of the rough gemstone directly affects its overall value as the cut determines how well a gem returns its body color back to the eye. Our standard facets are supplied in different sizes +/- 5%.
There are many different styles and elements for brands and designers to choose from for their collections. Different customers have different requirements.
Ring profiles, setting styles, prong counts or design details like whether to engrave or enamel or filigree are all options which have sub-options related to the technical abilities which we can provide for. These options and sub-options can be mixed and matched to create styles and designs which we offer as value additions to a design or brand.
The more intricate the detail, the longer it takes to make.
We are using high standard and European technology.
Our machinery are mainly used in the soldering and engraving process to avoid use harmful product can involve dangerous process before and after the manufacturing standard procedure.
Felicia Design often uses soldering for chains. However we also use soldering where applicable on different phases of jewelry production. We achieve solder-less, seamless welds on all metals with little or no heat, which allows us to work directly or adjacent to heat sensitive stones.
Other specialty metalsmithing techniques include chasing and repoussé, etching and engraving, electroforming and electroplating, raising, reticulation, casting and bezel setting. Finishing techniques such as filing, buffing, polishing are also technically developed by our teams and trade experience.
Also called "resin" or "cold enamels" this technology is the easiest and most practical way to apply vibrant color to a surface. Famous for being effective and having high strength results on many different materials. The best application is always with metals.
In the jewelry industry, the first application was more than 60 years ago. This technique originally developed from a different material, glass. Which was called "fire enamels" because of requirements of high temperatures and specific ovens. Now as "cold enamels" there is no need for melting temperatures.
The ability make combinations of colors like paint, allows this material to match pantone colors. Designers have even more options to inspire creativity.
