    Im sure most of yall know but the gold price spike is because of our boy trumpito! Some are saying as high as $2000/oz but it's prob going to settle around $1500-$1600 after this China/Russia/Iran thing is over. Might sell high and rebuy after trump is arrested. Also found a refiner tht gives 90-95% of your gold value! Just sayin!

    how did you find a refiner that pays you that much? all the places I've found searching online seam to have tricky language about their payouts or say they won't deal with you unless you're a business. honestly if my lungs were in better shape & had better contacts I would actually try the whole aqua regia thing myself.

    i think this question might be best for a jeweler, but i thought i'd ask here.

    for anyone here who made a custom pendant/medallion, how did you show them what you wanted done?

    did you bring a photo, drawing, something digital? i am assuming jewelers are using computers/3D or are jewelers making molds like a tattoo artist just doing it off a photo?

    were you happy with the end result?

    What kind of pendant? A typical iced out pendant or what? I ask because it depends on what you get. A lot of jewelers are doing molds with a cad software on the computer to design the 3d mold.

    I'm actually getting a hand made pendant.

    This jeweler in the bay area (now lives in vegas, but still owns a clothing store in the bay) where im from does custom silver and gold pendants. He does a bunch of styles, but a common and affordable style he does is a solid gold or silver pendants. He basically takes a printing of your logo or he can draw your name and puts the paper on top of a gold or silver sheet. He then saws the pendant out by hand. He was doing a giveaway for a pendant and i won over the weekend. I just sent him my logo yesterday. We will see how this goes, but I'm really excited.

    I'm not sure if this helps you in anyway, but since I'm currently in the process of getting a custom pendant I thought I'd give my input

    Also, heres an example what the jeweler does for these kind of pendants.

    Heres a hand drawn name


    Now heres the final piece


    Heres someones logo which is closer to what I'm getting. This is before the polishing process

    I'll ask when mine is done. I think I'm getting a silver one, but in the future I might want a gold one. I'll see how much that would cost.

    That whole process looks like future disappointment. We far too advanced now days. Use a CAD drawing

    Hes proud to do it by hand. That's what he likes. He doesnt want to take the easy way out unless he has too. Hes done a ton of pieces and they look great. He also does the cad stuff as well for more complex pieces. It's always great to do things by hand if you are good at it. His process is why I actually got into jewelery more. I like the behind the scenes of everything he is doing. He is the jeweler down to the making of the pendants. Most jewelers couldnt do this to save their life. They just sell jewelery and have other people do it. I know what you mean though. It can be done faster and easier.

    agree that the beard/chin on that Christ looks good except for that top stone on the upper part that is set lower than the rest. it would actually be a pretty great looking Jesus if the hair was different, needs moar ice on what is the right side of the picture & needs to be wavier on the other side & of course moar ice never hurts but you can probably get it made with additional diamonds for extra $$$$. Icebox still has a great price on a Jacob looking mold at under 20k for now with SI diamonds, they get up to pretty much 35k with what appears to be bigger stones that are VVS tho (34,938 to be exact). maybe the mold is different in the one that's moar expensive as well seeing as it is 25k with SI but I think it's just bigger stones.

    about CAD & drawings, I Think IF&CO talked a lot about doing pieces from simple drawings on their blog back in the days. not sure if this guy on instagram is still with them, he has good stuff on his page. I think IF&CO is expensive and not all of these are finished product but I think they look good:




    there are a few others on their page but I didn't wanna flood this page with the guy's entire instagram + I wouldn't know if he still works for them (the most recent post on his page is from October 2017). I actually went to that page cause I remembered their Jesus (didn't like it) & I think IF&CO has done a lot of dragons.
