ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS (OEM)
PRAQIA is a dynamic and forward-thinking OEM company.
Our purpose designed, in-house facilities, which had massive internal investment in 2019, allow us to produce your jewellery from design and development to end product. This ensures that the intellectual properties remain intact and that the designs are safe and secure.
Experienced production management ensures that your expectations and standards are met whether we are manufacturing on a supply basis or manufacturing under licence. We ensure that all products produced at PRAQIA are value add products consistent with client requirements for production, lead times and quality.
PRAQIA consistently explores new technologies. Technology is used to diversify options, decrease production times and to ensure the highest levels of continued quality.
Our innovative approach to problem solving has been one of the strengths that has given us the ability to grow as a company.
We galvanise our products and give our silver jewellery an extra coating of pure silver or rhodium dependant on the wishes of the client or based on our recommendation. In our alloys we do not use Cadmium, Lead, Nickel or any prohibited and harmful materials. Therefore, our jewellery is safe and suitable for children as well.
Our production staff are experts in the addition of textured finishes through specialised engraving techniques. Should you require a textured surface, our team can help to choose the best solution for the you as well as discussing the available options..
We also work with synthetic stones, predominantly with crystals from Swarovski®. If required, we can produce your jewellery product embellished with crystals from Swarovski®. They can provide lustre and can be faceted like any gemstone. A unique alternative for fashion. All PRAQIA stones are sourced from trusted partners.
Also called „resin“ or „cold enamels“ this is an easy way to addition colours to a metal surface. This differs from the original “fire enamels” which were originally made by melting glass which required the use of high temperature ovens in order to obtain a workable enamel. Now the use of „cold enamels“ means that there is no need for melting.
