Evgeniy,,, Thanks so much..

Do you use multiple contractors? , Whoever is doing this,,,does he also do the engraving?, and the investment cast itself?

Yes- use multiple contractors: die cast make one firm and all other is done by another company(2 jewelry masters)

Many years ago I took a very small , local, jewelry making class... It was very short, not very good, but showed me how really hard each step is.. Especially for those who do it start to finish..

Many do the whole process as you do Evgeniy. Find the very best specialist / master for each part.. Great way to do it. Can sometimes be expensive, but the pieces do come out great!!

- Is it possible to show us the investment cast process?

About shipping no problem (just mailings are closed only with Sweden and Australia, as I know - this is their initiative), about payment available only bank transfer
I receive orders and send, people continue to receive my packages

Excellent!! the ultrasonic bath is a good cleaning procedure.. The whole process [cast] is complicated and long start to finish but makes a great copy... Thanks much!

That's a cool video. Are there any known SS rings that had jewels in the eyes?

yes it was, but it was done unofficially, by the owner of the ring, for example rubins

Does anyone know what original skulls looked like on the backside before mounting?

Of course, everything is very simple, just a flat area
A flat platform was made on the ring and the back side of the skull was also
There could not be anything else, and then the skull was soldered

Hi Evgeniy, I just joined yesterday. I just purchased two HRs from Hapur. I’m interested in purchasing a couple from you.
I tried clicking on your profile to send you a PM but for some reason it won’t let me.

I found this forum while doing research on an HR that a co-worker gave me. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a fake, and not a good one at that.
I’ve attached some pics of it.

b2l ,,, Welcome to the forum.. Yes Hapur does make a very nice copy too!. His beliefs are a bit different,, if you check out his website his are made in a period press with a die!

Evgeniy uses the '[lost wax method'] or 'Investment Cast'. And there are many ways to accomplish that. One at a time,,many [on a tree], , centrifugal,, pressure,, vacuum assist!. What ever,, his are also very very nice copys. There is no doubt in my mind that if he was making these as he does now 20 years ao they would all pass for authentic!!

You already have a couple of Hapurs,,sure why not treat yourself to a couple of Evgeniys.... Keep trying , you'll get him ,,try

Received my rings from hapur. The skull is kind of flat and the triangles look to be too close to the skull.

Hi to all!

I’m new here, so let me present to you…

I’m from Italy and 8 years ago I bought the Antonio Scapini book with an Italian made ring copy in 925 silver:

After 8 years of wearing, the ring looks like new but now it’s too small for me, so I ordered another one in bigger size from the same site. What I received it’s uncommentable, ahahahah:

So, I sent the comparison to the vendor asking for a replacement and finally I received a nicer ring, specially made for me:

But after this experience I started to search for a better quality copy and I found Evgeniy, initially I was a bit afraid to order from Russia because the actual situation, in fact the first attempt to send money to him with online bank transfer was a failure, the second attempt going physically to my bank gone fine.

Evgeniy starts to work and later sent me some pics of the finished ring: it’s a beauty!

The first attempt to receive the ring was a failure: the Russian customs sent it back to Evgeniy without any explaination. The second attempt gone fine and this is a comparison with my new Italian made ring and my new Evgeniy ring!

I have a Russian friend, so in the future when he or his parents will go to Russia, I will ask to grab another ring for me without need to order from Italy again…
