Electroforming process for jewellery industry
Nutec and 14-18-21 karat gold electroforming
Electroforming process for the jewellery industry: 24 carat gold is beautiful, of course, and can be beaten into sheets or drawn out as wire, but it is too soft to be used for most of the other purposes in the jewellery industry. You cannot set a diamond in it for instance; it is not strong enough to hold a stone. It also cannot retain its shape in any complicated or intricate design.
Even a simple ring would be likely to bend or break. That is why most jewellers use lower carat gold, most commonly 9, 18 or 22. Modern technology has changed all this though and found a way of harnessing the beauty of 24 carat gold without being hampered by its fragility and impracticability. This is the electroforming process for the jewellery industry. Electroforming must not be confused with electroplating. It is not just one layer coating a base metal. It is more complicated.

AUROFORM MONOLITH: electroforming process for the jewellery industry
In the method known as electroforming, the finished item is created using layers of precious and non-precious metals followed by a final protective coating. You start with a form of the piece you intend to create.
Base metal is applied first to a fusible alloy mandrel which then has a layer of gold applied, and finally a protective coating. The alloy mandrel then has to be melted out. The resulting jewellery pieces are hollow and light and can be wonderfully intricate as a result of this process. In 14-18-21 karat gold electroforming the malleable gold is the central layer. The whole process creates hard and strengthened pieces of jewellery. Anything is possible.
