Even though we use cutting-edge technology in processes such as product development and surface coating, jewelry is still made mostly by hand – on average, all our jewelry travels through more than ten pairs of hands on its way from a blank into an actual piece of jewelry. At our factory, the latest modern technological innovations are combined with centuries of traditional Finnish goldsmiths’ craftsmanship. Have you ever wondered how a piece of metal or a handful of metal grains becomes an elaborate piece of jewelry? What kind of methods, tools and equipment are needed? What kind of working processes and skills are required? Read more about the two manufacturing methods, jewelry casting and pressing. The many stages involved in the making of one piece of jewelry may come as a surprise.
