@bnamrs4evr:  Casting basically means that he’ll make the final product. Approving the wax model is the final step before it’s made

Casting means he will pour molten metal (gold, silver, etc) to replicate the wax version of the ring.  Depending on the metal used, he may include a flux such as borax to prevent impurities (oxides) from forming on the metal during the smelting process.  He’ll then file and polish this cast to remove any surface imperfections, and will (if it will have stones) set stone(s) in it.
