     Letters and lighting bolts: 14k yellow gold

     Bar: 14k white gold

     Chain: 14k yellow gold


     Eight 1.1mm round brilliant cut natural diamonds (F/G in color Vs clarity) totaling .05ct total weight


     Each diamond is surface set using a single shared prong design.

     The letters and lighting bolts were oven cast using a lost wax process.  The white gold bar was hand fabricated for added durability.

     Assembly was completed using laser welding and hand soldering techniques.

Design and Manufacturing: 

       The design was created in CAD (computer aided design) using Matrix Gold.  Matrix is a parametric based program specifically used for jewelry.  A 3D resin model was printed, and from that a mold was created for casting using a "lost wax process", named for  the fact that the resin model in burned away to create the mold.  This is a one-off piece that will never be recreated except by client request.
