Galvanique is an innovative American manufacturer of objects in sterling silver and other precious metals. Our Providence, RI facility is conveniently located in proximity to a wide variety of talented artists, designers and specialty sub-contractors who contribute to our creative process. Founded in 2000 by Alexandr Belykh, Galvanique is the culmination of a career spent perfecting the art of electroforming. Alex holds a Masters degree in electro-mechanical engineering from the Kharkov Polytechnic Institute in the Ukraine. Shortly after immigrating to the US, he joined Ultralite Jewelry and was quickly promoted to General Manager. During Alex’s tenure, Ultralite became the world’s largest producer of electroformed jewelry in 8kt, 9kt, 10kt, 14kt, 18kt gold, and sterling silver. Alex designed Ultralite’s mass production facility to electroform copper onto plastic and significant capacity to deposit gold and rhodium onto copper-plated plastic jewelry. In 1997, Alex joined Jacmel Jewelry (New York) where he was hired to set up and run a high-output 14kt and 18kt gold electroforming line. Alex also set up the Jacmel facility to chemically etch millions of bimetal tubular earrings, modernized their waste water and precious metals recovery room and establish a state-of-the-art chemical lab equipped with atomic absorption spectrophotometer and fire assay lab. Belykh’s work as a product development and finishing consultant includes projects in the Dominican Republic, Bolivia and the US. Alex has adopted various practices refined with years of experience to set up a highly efficient electroforming facility. With its constant upkeep, Galvanique’s factory is a closed-loop plating facility releasing no harmful chemicals or heavy metals into the environment. Whether clients provide concept sketches or working models, Galvanique and our network of highly efficient sub-contractors are prepared to deliver prototypes, pre-production or full production quantities quickly and at the right price. Since 2000, Galvanique has collaborated with many of the most recognized brand names in the jewelry, silverware, tableware, toy, decorative arts and retail industries. We have consistently developed new techniques and methods to form and finish metal products. Common to all Galvanique projects are three core beliefs:
Products of beauty and value can be competitively manufactured in the United States.
One need not cheapen a product to make it efficiently.
Integrity in our business practices is our most important service.
Galvanique – Forming precious relationships.
