This simple and slender ring will be hand forged from scratch, starting with molten platinum. First, Dan will pour an ingot, which looks a bit like a lumpy baby carrot. He then rolls this ingot into a square form with his rolling mill, down and down, until it is small enough to pull through circular "doors" on his gauge. The final photos show Dan "pulling wire" for a spool ring, which will have very delicate wire wound around the base of the ring. Difficult to see in the photo, the wire becomes thinner and thinner as Dan pulls it through progressively smaller doors. The concept is the same for full round rings made in larger dimensions.
These days, it is very easy to buy pre-formed full round stock and simply solder it together, but Dan always prefers to forge his own stock. When metal is cold worked, it is stronger and more durable.
We use an alloy of 95% platinum and 5% ruthenium for our platinum jewelry.
