Jewellery designs and techniques have evolved at an alarming rate because the jewellery designing and manufacturing industry is gradually adapting to technological advancements. Professional jewellery makers combine their skills in using 3D printing, computer-aided design (CAD) and augmented reality, with traditional Jewellery making skills, and this revolutionising the jewellery industry as much as any other industry.

Much of the exclusive jewelry available commercially is now designed using CAD software. Using a pen and paper to design by hand isn’t as easy as using CAD, which enables specialists to create variations in designs. Using CAD on a secure system with

every detail required for the design of even the smallest areas of a piece of jewellery can be scaled and scanned easily. This process may require several hours if done the traditional way.

At the CAD design stage, all necessary modifications can be made, and CAD can be used to enhance the creative process by making reviews and allowing you to undo anything that will not give the piece it’s best look. Goldsmiths centre are beginning to use 3D printers to produce jewelry too. They create designs that are printed in wax and then cast in precious metal. Customers can also choose what materials they want for their item, be it gold, silver or sapphire, before they can be molded.

These processes reduces labor and make production quicker for designers and producers, as well as shoppers. These technologies are among the biggest step taken by the industry to cross over every boundary in jewellery production. Now, clients can completely change a piece to be exactly what they want , and still be able to try out the finished products including rings, bracelets and necklaces virtually. People can decide to recreate a treasured family heirloom, or create something from their imagination. Either way, designs made on CAD can always be re-used to repeat the same kind of piece.
