When you’re buying a bespoke piece of jewellery, you’ll want to make sure it’s of the highest possible quality, standard, and of course, design. More and more jewellers are starting to advertise CAD services for designing jewellery, but many prospective buyers have very little understanding of what this actually means and involves.
CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design, also know as 3D jewellery design and essentially means that your item will be designed with technology before it is crafted in the real world. CAD allows you to view the design in incredible detail, and make any changes that you want before the manufacturing process begins and your jewellery is actually created. This means that your item is exactly as you want it to be, down to the finest detail.
If you’re not entirely sure what you’re looking for, jewellers who use CAD will also be able to show you lots of different examples in many different formats – allowing you to take aspects of their suggestions and combine them to come up with a design that is completely unique.
Here at Hatton Garden, we have a number of expert jewellers who offer CAD services to enable you to design your perfect piece. Why not come along for a consultation and design your dream diamond ring or perfect pendant today?
Software used in the process of 3D jewellery design are Autocad, Rhino Gold, Zbrush & Sculptris, Matrix, 3Design, Blender, TikerCad.
