Unpolished Casting

 

Casting is a process in which melted metal is poured into a mold and allowed to harden.   After a piece of jewelry is removed from the mold, it is filed, polished and, if need be, set with gemstones.

Some Casting History

Casting is a 6000 year old process. The oldest surviving casting is a copper frog from 3200 BC.
