Historically, sculptures composed of precious metals were crafted using the traditional hot casting process. 25 years ago, the artisans at renowned metal art company D’Argenta introduced an advanced new metalworking technique that changed the way precious metals are sculpted. D’Argenta’s new method combined cold casting and electroforming to create intricate, finely detailed sculptures. The pieces are initially plated with a .015 inch (400 micra) thick layer of copper, then plated with silver or (24K) gold at a thickness of .001 inch (24 micra). Each sculpture's interior is composed of a polyester fiberglass core that strengthens sleek metal plating. After being formed, each piece is coated with a protective lacquer to prevents tarnishing and maintain luster. This final step ensures that all D'Argenta sculptures, though crafted with fine silver, do not require polish or any type of metal cleaner and can be simply dusted with a dry cloth as needed.
Exported around the world and now available in over 25 countries, D'ARGENTA's products have won international acclaim because of their innovative construction and exquisite beauty. In 1981, D'Argenta was recognized with the Bulgarian Government Gold Medal award. In 1992, a D'Argenta sculpture was gifted to His Royal Highness Prince Naruhito of Japan on a visit to Mexico. A nod to the company's exclusive prestige, D'Argenta sculptures have been gifted to an increasingly long list of dignitaries, including Pope John Paul II, Prince Phillip of England, and his Majesty King Harald of Norway.
