Inlaying process of stainless steel jewelry
The most common "stone" crafts in jewelry are sticky rhinestones and inlaid stones. However, for those who love jewelry but do not understand jewelry, how to distinguish between rhinestones and Hao Shi? Today, the editor will explain to everyone with his meager jewelry knowledge.
1. The difference between rhinestones and Hao Shi
The rhinestone and zircon used are actually different in shape. The bottom of the rhinestone is flat, but the bottom of the zircon is tapered, which is the same as the real rhinestone, and the bottom is also coated with a layer of mercury , So in comparison, zircon has a much better gloss than rhinestones.
Whether it is sticky rhinestones or zircons, as long as it is made into jewelry, the surface looks the same (because different parts are hidden), but the gloss is different, and the fastness is also completely different In the same way, it can be said that the process of inlaying zircon is more complicated, higher grade and cost higher than sticky rhinestone.
2. The process of sticky rhinestone and inlaid stone
When producing stainless steel jewelry, a process is called wax injection. When wax injection, zircon is embedded in the wax, and then the stainless steel is melted into a liquid state, poured into the jewelry mold, and the wax is melted with the liquid In order to replace the wax, it becomes a stainless steel embryo after cooling. After polishing, electroplating and other processes, the zircon inlaid jewelry is ready.
Sticky rhinestones, after the jewelry has been polished and electroplated, are then glued to the jewelry with special glue for rhinestones. The use of sticky rhinestones is mainly alloy jewelry.
