Our jewelry are made from different gemstones, precious stones and organic stones.

DRAWING

Coming from Erik Schaix Jewelry Collections, the inspiration and the resulting design often borrow codes and aspects of fine jewelry.

PRECIOUS METALS

Everything begins with the transformation of the raw metal. The metal is then worked in various forms (raw, plated..). For certain creations, our craftsmen also use the technique of the lost wax casting.

We create jewels made of yellow, white and red 18 carat gold 750, and sterling silver 925.

JEWELING - SETTING

We use several techniques of jeweling and setting:

• The cabochon: mainly in a claw or in a bezel setting

• Faceted stones: mainly in a claw, grain, bezel or bar setting.

• The tortillon: technique used for bracelets and silver necklaces, made of stones or pearls.

POLISHING - RHODIUM-PLATING

The polishing allows to choose the final effect which we wish to give to the jewel. Several techniques can be used as the brushed effect, the brilliant polishing, the hammered style or the grinding.

Some jewels need to pass by the stage of the rhodium-plating. It is mainly white gold or silver jewels in order to give them a brighter effect.

STAMPING

Before the final polishing, the jewel is punched with the master’s stamp (the acorn) and with the stamp of the State. At the end it is laser-signed by the logo Schaix Paris. The laser allows to engrave very small parts of the jewels with great precision and to make high quality decorations on them.


CASE
