Lost wax technique String ring
When you represent over 40 Australian based jewellers, designers and artisans there is bound to be a diverse range of wedding rings available for grooms who all have different tastes. One of our favourite designers is Melbourne based jeweller Ali Alexander. She specialises in the lost wax technique whereby each and every one of her wedding rings are first hand formed in wax, sent out to be cast and finally finished by hand to give them their unique look and polish. It’s called the lost wax technique as in the casting process the original wax ring is replaced by the metal version. Thus the wax is lost forever. This String ring in 9ct white gold is extra special as Ali still uses the lost wax technique but with the added twist that a piece of string is dipped in molten wax to form the original ring when wrapped around her jewellers mandrel.
