cuttlefish bone casting to create wedding bands

One of the services I offer is cuttlefish bone casting to create wedding bands, I can recycle any ‘family gold’you may have to create your wedding bands, or shanks for engagement or dress rings.
This keeps the sentiment and family connections within the piece and is done by using one of the oldest techniques of ‘cuttlefish bone’ casting.
The Process:-
The bone is cut in two, each half is flattened against the other by rubbing them together,then an impression is made into the bones in the form of a D shape or square groove. A shaped funnel is cut at the top of the bones once both halves are bound together. The molten gold can then be poured into it when casting. The cuttlefish can then be used as a mould for the gold bar required to make the ring.

A funnel shape is carved into the top of the cuttlefish bone for the molten gold to pour in when casting.

In the workshop ready to cast ……….

Anealing the gold

The gold needs to be softened ready for rolling out to shape.

The rolling mill

A rolling mill helps to form the final shape of the gold.


Then once the gold is the right length and shape it can be formed into a circle and soldered, followed by filing to remove any marks or scratches and finally polishing is done to finish the ring……..
