They are put against fire at a very hot temperature, to make them hard, then hand painted with many colors, such as 22 karat gold. Afterwards, they are put under fire again again, sometimes for a few times, until they are perfectly shaped. They are then mounted on a metal hinge and clasp to be finalized.
