Understanding 3D Printing

While 3D printing technology isn't new, its application in the jewellery making process is more recent and innovative. Big corporations and small enterprises alike are leveraging this technology to make a statement with their unique jewellery pieces, particularly custom lab grown diamond rings.

The process begins with a design or sketch crafted using specialised 3D modelling software. Once saved as a 3D file, a 3D printer utilizing specific materials prints the design. These materials can range from powders and filaments to resins and wax. For jewellers, wax stands as the go-to material for replication, continuing the traditional techniques deployed by goldsmiths.

The Role of 3D Printing in Jewellery Production

As you set out to design your own lab grown diamond ring, 3D printing emerges as the perfect tool to help you seamlessly express your limitless creativity. This avant-garde technology, paired with exclusive European craftsmanship, enables easier and less costly experimentation.

In producing a piece of jewellery, 3D printing plays a pivotal role right from the onset. Through a dedicated software, you first design the custom lab grown diamond ring of your dreams. The 3D printer then brings this design to life, creating a detailed wax model that serves as the blueprint for the jewellery piece.

The Art of Craftsmanship

Following the modelling process, traditional crafting techniques take over. A mould of plaster is made for casting the metal, the wax is burned or melted in high-temperature ovens, and ultimately, the metal forms a stunning piece of jewellery. The incorporation of 3D printing technology has proven to significantly save time and resources, aiding designers in crafting exquisite lab grown diamond jewellery that effortlessly shines bright. This is the art of jewellery creation redefined by Valquère.
