In May we had a new client come in that was referred to us by a good friend. She had a whole pile of old, out of date jewelry that she was either not using or didn’t like the designs. She has developed a very contemporary style and wanted something totally different.
We looked at some ring designs in magazines and catalogues to determine where her tastes lie and then completed a rough sketch. We then removed the diamonds and gemstones from her jewelry, measured them and weighed them and submitted the design to our CAD technician. In a complicated CAD design there is usually an exchange that takes several revisions to complete before we arrive at the final design.
This image shows the process from evaluating existing stones to researching designs that appeal to the clients taste. Then doing a sketch of the layout of the stones, completing the CAD image for approval and then the finished piece. This one was one of our best!
