Video summary: Aus Alt mach Neu: In diesem Video zeigt Katrin, wie aus Altgold ein neuer Ring hergestellt wird. Zu erst schmelzt sie das zerkleinerte Altgold, um es dann mit Hammer und Walze zu einem dicken Draht umzuformen. Anschließend zieht sie das dicke Goldprofil durch ein Zieheisen, um die gewünschte ovale Form herzustellen. Aus dem ovalen Draht formt sie einen Ring und lötet die Enden zusammen. Nach der Beize wird der Ring bis zur gewünschten Ringgröße geschmiedet. Zum Schluss erfolgt der Feinschliff. Fertig ist ein neuer Ring aus altem Gold!

Sizing details

You do not know your ring size and have never worn a ring: please do not just put on a measuring tape and read off the millimetres...

Ring sizes depend not only on the circumference of the finger, but also on the ring model (width, shape etc.). We recommend to have the ring size determined at a goldsmith, at a jeweller or at a jewellery department in a department store. The ring should be easy to turn on the finger, not constrict it and slide over the knuckle with some resistance.

A wide ring displaces more mass, so when measuring the ring size it is important to indicate the desired ring shape, e.g. thin, wide, rounded inside or flat. We need the number engraved on the ring or read off the ring stick.

blackened silver

Blackened silver does not remain permanently black. Since only the uppermost layer of silver can be blackened, the black is rubbed off with wearing, especially on the higher layers, and the silver reappears. However, it is possible to "re-colour" the piece of jewellery again without any problems.

Care instructions

The surface of jewellery changes over time. Glossy polished surfaces get scratches and matt surfaces get rubbed off by wearing and become shiny. This is normal, because the pieces of jewellery live with the wearer.

If the traces of wear disturb you, we can polish, matt, boil white or black the jewellery again. Normal dirt is best removed with soapy water and a soft brush.

If it is very dirty it is best to leave the cleaning to the goldsmith, who knows exactly how to clean jewellery with pearls or delicate stones. This service can be very time consuming and therefore will cost something.

Calour variations

We photograph our jewellery with white balance, but it can still happen that, for example, the colours of the stones "in real" look different than on your monitors - which can also be due to different monitor settings. And gemstones come from nature: hardly any of them look exactly like a second stone, and since all our items are individually handmade, this can also cause small deviations from the items shown.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have any questions about ring sizes, special requests or personalisation (e.g. engravings), please contact us BEFORE buying via the message function or by email to shop@auguste-froschhammer.com

Care of silver jewellery

Silver reacts with the hydrogen sulphide contained in the oxygen, silver sulphide is formed on the surface, this discolours and dark blue to brown-black spots appear.

Basically silver jewellery can be cleaned with a soft brush and a mild soap. And if no organic material, such as pearls, corals, amber, wood, etc. are attached to the piece of jewellery, you can briefly dip the washed piece of jewellery in a silver polishing bath, rinse well and dry with a soft cotton cloth.

Polished jewellery can also be cleaned with a silver cleaning cloth. This in turn is not suitable for matt surfaces.
