This stage consists in transforming a piece of raw material into a unique form, specific to a LE GRAMME design.
A laser is used to engrave the material and mark the weight of each piece.
The dexterity and careful movements of the craftsman bring out the finish of each object, whether polished, brushed or mat.
As the pieces are hand crafted, they require a process of standardisation to ensure that they conform to a specific weight as well as the specific elements of each object.
The application of polish is a delicate operation, done with a fine brush, which darkens the engraved lines showing the weight of each article.
Attesting to the quality and originality of LE GRAMME objects, each stamp has a specific meaning: - the maker’s mark, guaranteeing that the object was produced in a French workshop - the national hallmark certifying the quality of the precious metal - the LE GRAMME stamp attesting to the originality of our pieces.
A fine film, of only a nano-thickness, is applied to the metal, which will enable it to retain its colour longer.
After passivation, the objects are placed on a drying rack.
