The world of Jewelry Manufacturing is right now entering a phase of evolution, the old arts of sketching, modeling, reviewing and restarting that long time consuming process until satisfaction are disappearing.
For years already the designers of most of our jewelry have called upon the power of CAD based computer systems to quickly sketch 3d models of new classic and modern designs. This takes place before the time and budget consuming process of 3d modeling to see how it would look in reality. At that point an approval can be secured and the item can go into full jewelry production.
Today the world of technology has taken strides in the development of 3D Printing for Jewelry Manufacturing. Companies such as Object Geometries have produced a desktop 3D printer solution that offers an exclusive combination of high-quality, finely detailed models in a compact, office friendly system.
Based on proven technologies and compounds, the PolyJet™ Photopolymer Jetting technology, creates true-to life parts of any kind with extreme accuracy in a matter of minutes. No need to send CAD sketches away and wait weeks for a 3d model to be returned (at great expense). Now 3d Print Modeling is as easy as paper printing!

You’re reading this if you’ve just bought, been given or simply suspect that a diamond you own may not be real. The problem with diamonds (and their high value) is that it takes a trained eye to spot a fake, but only devious mind to sell one.
So we’re outlining some quick and easy tips so you can check your stone is real. You can also apply these tips before you buy to safe guard your essential purchase. Today, there are some diamonds that are created in a a lab-created or synthetic (including cubic zircona) these stones are “real” but are not real “diamonds”. These stones will cost you much less than that of a true diamond. They are often stunning, sharing many of the same characteristics as real diamonds. They may be chemically the same as “true” diamonds.
