RESOVON High Jewelry Wax Carving

RESOVON Born For High Jewelry



Wax carving is an ancient tradition of jewelry making, with the first recorded wax carvings dating back around 6,000 years.


Wax carving is a good jewelry making technique, which not only improves the quality of jewelry, but also reduces the cost and risk of jewelry making. Because it’s a great way to experiment with affordable materials. RESOVON used this technique into our high jewelry bespoke services.


The entire wax carving process starts with a piece of jewelry wax, which is filed into the shape you need, just like a sculptor would with a stone. Your finished wax piece is then sent to a casting machine to be cast into whatever metal you want through the lost wax casting process.


The reason jewelers choose wax is because it’s really easy to shape, form and carve. You can remove material, as well as add to it, which means that if you make any mistakes, they’re easy to go back and correct.


There are also many types of waxes, so you can use very hard waxes or soft waxes and combine them to create many different shapes, textures and finishes for precious metal jewelry.


Each type of jewelry wax has its pros and cons. Beeswax, for example, was too soft for sculpting and shaping, and it was problematic to use at warm temperatures, so file-a-wax products were developed.


Although Ferris wax comes in four different colors, green and blue are the most commonly used.

  • Green Wax: Very hard and inflexible. Ideal for sharp edges as well as intricate carvings and delicate engravings.
  • Purple wax: more general, hard, with a certain degree of elasticity.
  • Blue Wax: Because it is softer than green or purple waxes, it is more flexible. Suitable for round surfaces and less complex designs. It is a popular choice among jewelers.
  • Turquoise Wax: This wax shows an excellent surface finish, especially in sunken areas. It maintains exceptional strength, toughness and extreme flexibility.


Excellent wax carvers have rich experience, talent in wax carving, proficiency in the characteristics of various waxes, and can add creativity and possibilities to the customization process of high-end jewelry through wax carving techniques.


The wise jewelry craftsmen in history invented the lost wax casting process, which transformed wax sculptures into precious metal pieces, suitable for the high-end jewelry customization process.


The process involves first making your wax piece, then applying a type of anhydrite called investment pattern or special sand over it, and then melting the wax to leave a negative impression of the wax piece.


Then you can turn it upside down and pour whatever gold or silver or whatever metal you’re using into the negative space to make a replica of the wax sculpture out of the metal.


Of course, you may make as many copies of this work as you want.
