SUNSRI has a product development department dedicated to client design development; Our in-house team of highly skilled designers, artisans, and technicians will help customer to embody their design ideas and concepts into a beautiful piece of jewelry. We use computer-aided technology to create the design illustration which then presented with a visual prototype of the piece. It will give customer a clear idea of what the product will look like. Every progress will be updated so customer are able to review and witness how your idea brought to life.
The first step of the jewelry-making process is creating the prototype. There are several prototype-making methods, wax carving is one of them. SUNSRI in-house team of talented and highly skilled wax carver artisans will help customer to embody their design ideas and concepts into a wax prototype.
The wax prototype can be cast using the lost wax casting method, the casting then cleaned up, if it’s a one-off piece it will proceed to the assembly and finishing process. if it’s for mass production, it will have a mold made.
3D Printing Machine
3D Print Product
SUNSRI provides 3d printing services, so customers are able to prototyping complex items with great precision. 3D Printing allows us to make designs with complex shapes with hollows, voids, and small details. It also allows us to estimate the weight of the final product, review and evaluate the design before proceeding for further process. 3D printing has become an essential tool for many jewelry designers because of the precision it gives for the development of new products.
Sample Making Process
QC and Measuring
Sample making is a very important role in the jewelry business. We advise customers to make samples before producing larger quantities. By making a sample, we can experience and try the product firsthand. It also allows us to review and evaluate all aspect of the product, so the product can hit a great success in the market.
The mold allows us to produce a uniform product in a faster time. SUNSRI provides two types of molding, Rubber and Silicone Molding. We use rubber to mold metal masters such as silver, copper, or brass, but we have to use silicone to mold masters with a softer material like wax, clay, or resin. Our molding technician will ensure the molds are strong, flexible and reusable, so it’s able to produce identical models time after time.
Lost-wax casting, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. With a proper procedure, lost-wax casting is able to produce a large amount of intricate design jewelry with a smooth surface in a shorter time. SUNSRI team always strives to ensure the casting process runs in a proper procedure in order to produce high-quality casting pieces.

The electroplating method allows corrosion inhibiting, increasing solderability, improving wearability, reinforcing paint adhesion, reducing frictions, improving conductivity, and, in our case, decorating and embellishing the jewelry.
Anti Tarnish Coating and E-Coating
Anti Tarnish Coating is a medium based on nano-technology for protecting silver against tarnishing. Special nanopolymers absorb on the silver surface and cross-link to form a protective layer of a few nanometers thickness. The invisible layer protects the base material from oxidation and discoloration.
The e-coating is infused with nano-ceramic particles which are undetectable by the human eye. These particles make the coating more abrasion-resistant than traditional coatings and they provide a metallic sensation to the touch. The metal underneath will remain perceivable and bring the advantages of antitarnish, Biologically safe, skin-friendly, and hypoallergenic.
SUNSRI offers both Anti Tarnish Coating and E-Coating services at a decent price.
