about our Products & Services >>
Because of the high cost of jewelry design and
the high level of technical expertise required to
reliably produce perfect parts, the trend is to
use specialized third-party service bureaus.
We offer reduced time and cost for jewelry designers
and their clients with state-of-the-art technology.
Our machines build wax models from computer files
using thermoplastics that are perfect components
for investment casting. See
some of the machinery here >>
In the past jewelry design was greatly hindered
by difficult communication between the customer
and the jeweler. The only option for executing a
jewelry design was looking through a stock jewelry
design catalogue. Whenever the customer had a vision
or idea which was not realized in the finished piece
of jewelry the sale became
With the aid of computer aided design (cad) model
making has taken a wonderful new direction. With
us jewelry stores and jewelry customers can actually
see their idea before the creation stage. Other
important benefits to cad is accuracy and affordability.
Your model can now be manufactured with incredible
symmetry because the wax
model is created using our in house rapid prototyping
Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by translating
CAD Designs into hard copy 3D models. These models
are so accurate that designers can go beyond concept
modeling to produce tooling grade patterns ready
for casting or mold-making.
Jointly CAD/CAM allows the using of a computer (CAD)
and creates an exact hard copy model of a piece
using a computer controlled manufacturing device
(CAM). Our technicians utilize all file types compatible
with any CAM device, which allows us to quickly
generate a precise wax
model ready for casting.
Stereo lithography and these other hard model technologies
are the future of the jewelry industry. Leading
jewelers effectively use CAM
"service bureaus" that specialize in prototype
Jewelry design is the art or profession of creating,
crafting, fabricating, or rendering designs for
jewelry. This is an ancient practice of the goldsmith
or metalworker that evolved to a billion-dollar
industry with the odyssey from ancient cultures
into the machine age. Jewelleryfalls under the category
of what is commonly known as "functional art",
being art that can be worn or used.
History of the designing:
Before an article of jewelry is created, it is
typically rendered by a jewelry designer, a professional
who is trained in the architectural and functional
knowledge of not only metallurgy but also design
elements such as composition and wearability.
Once the article is rendered, the design is then
constructed using the necessary materials for proper
adaptation to the function of the object. For example,
24K Gold was used in ancient jewelry design because
it was more accessible than silver as source material.
Before the 1st century many civilizations also incorporated
beads into jewelry. Once the discovery of gemstones
and gem cutting became more readily available, 2.
the art of jewelry ornamentation and design shifted.
The earliest documented gemstone cut was done by
Theophilus Presbyter (c.1070 - 1125). who practiced
and developed many applied arts and was a known
goldsmith. Later, during the 14th Century, medieval
lapidary technology evolved to include cabochons
Early commissions were often constituted by nobility
or the church to honor an event or as wearable ornamentation.
Within the structure of early methods, enameling
and repoussé became standard methods for
creating ornamental wares to demonstrate wealth,
position, or power. These early techniques created
a specific complex design element that later would
forge the baroque movement in jewelry design.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
the jewelry manufacturing process from start to
finish, we deliver quality.
