Every Pharaoun Cocktail Ring is designed by me, Sergio Andrés Mendoza, and produced using the lost-wax casting technique in my workshop out of sterling silver and then covered with 22 karat gold. The crystals used are each stone-cut, polished, and set by hand, and represent my favorite natural stones. Each style can also be ordered in 22 karat gold over 18 karat gold, with prices starting at $2950.
I've been lucky to surround myself with true craftsmen who have shared their expertise with me, and I still have a lot to learn. Producing a single ring requires dozens of steps, each completed by an expert who has specialized in a specific technique. Here are some snapshots of a few of the most photogenic steps in the process.
If you too would like to learn more about how each of my pieces are made, just let me know, and I'll take you through the entire process.
