Our TRI collection has quickly become a signature CMD style, and we’re often asked how we achieve the tri-toned effect within a single piece. We love taking you behind-the-scenes in the studio, so read on to learn about the process that brings TRI to life.

We begin with a piece of gold, either yellow or rose, and solder it to a piece of silver. Once the metals are fused, we oxidize the entire silver section (meaning that portion of the pendant will have a black finish). We then strip the oxidization off part of the silver, leaving the matte black finish on a small sliver of the piece for a unique juxtaposition.

What are your favorite TRI pieces? We’d love to hear how you wear the collection!
