About The Genuine Birthstones (See Guide Below For The Stone We Use For Your Month)

From Raw Gold To Finished Products
From Raw gold to finished products, our birthstones are made in our family-run jewelry factory. The method we use is called Lost Wax Casting which goes back thousands of years. We begin the process by making a wax mold for each ring. The wax is placed into a flask and then into an oven and burned out at 1300 degrees. The wax melts away leaving a cavity which we then pour gold into. After a variety of grinding and sanding steps, the ring is now ready for stone setting. This is where the ring really comes to life. The stones are handset and then we polish the ring to a fine finish and another Amy & Andy creation is born.
