Custom Designed Jewelry

Jul 11, 2008
Today, custom designed jewelry has become very popular. The most famous among all custom designed jewelry is the 3D-CAD design. It is Computer Aided Design, which has changed the whole facet and landscape of custom designed jewelry. Earlier, people could not comprehend or even see renditions of these kinds of designs. However, now with the help of CAD, people are able to create designs of much higher quality and of greater flexibility. Here we will talk about this new phenomenon but, before learning more about the CAD designs, we must learn and fully understand the custom jewelry design process.

A process called lost wax casting is used to make most custom made jewelry. A jeweler or an artisan carves a prototype of the jewelry out of the wax with the help of small knives and scalpels. Then he pours plaster all around the wax prototype, also known as the model. Once the plaster hardens, it forms an exact impression of the given model in the flask. After that, the wax model is burnt out of the flask, and it leaves a cavity of the jewelry design. Then, molten metal is slowly injected into the flask with the help of centrifugal or vacuum casting. When the metal cools down, it also hardens. Then the investment stands ready and reveals the jewelry casting. Finally, the casting is polished and filed, and if needed, any gems can be set into the jewelry. The custom jewelry can be an engagement ring, an anniversary ring, or virtually any other item.

Custom CAD design involves a different process of creating a jewelry item. It is a sophisticated modeling process with the help of advanced software. It enables the user to plot detailed coordinates for the mechanical drawing. 3D-CAD software has countless kinds of designs, which can easily outdo traditional tools and methods. One of the most important benefits is that the 3D-CAD jewelry design enables you to see the computer rendering before the completion of the jewelry. In the traditional methods, the jewelers would make crude sketches of your own concept, and leave the rest to your own imagination. However, in 3D-CAD, you can see the realistic images of the different designs that help the designer and ultimately you, make a final decision.

It is paramount to find a qualified jeweler to assist you with making your custom jewelry design come to life. Like different kinds of occupations and trades, there are also different kinds of skillful jewelers. If you want to buy a piece of custom jewelry, then you must pre-screen the jeweler to know whether he or she is capable of making custom designed jewelry. Try to look at their different designs, and determine their competence, design skills, and craftsmanship. You must be sure whether they are capable of making the exact design that you want. Once the jewelry is made, it is extremely difficult to make changes. The jeweler will not remake it without charging extra service fees. Custom designed jewelry is the best choice, if you can get it made by an authorized and qualified jeweler. Find one such jeweler, and your dream custom designed jewelry dreams will be fulfilled.
