CAD Design Process

Whether designing a new piece of jewelry or replacing a lost item, the design process begins with a phone call or email to your insureds from one of our jewelry specialists. Our graduate gemologist and jewelry specialist will collect inspirational images and specifications from the original appraisal, if applicable, and come up with an initial CAD drawing and estimated price of the new replacement piece.

CAD Final Render

Once the estimate is approved, R&R; Groups jewelry specialist will have a computer-aided design (CAD) rendering created. The CAD drawing will have multiple views of the piece so the client can have a clear picture of the finished product in his or her mind. Changes can be made at this point in the design process. After the rendering reaches an approval, the master jeweler can begin the intricate work of manufacturing the item.

Ring Render Grade Final

The manufacturing process begins with the production of a resin (wax) mold from the original CAD design that is used to cast the design in the desired metal. R&R; Group only uses pure metals combined with the finest Italian Alloys to Karat the fine gold. After the casting is completed, the piece is inspected thoroughly under magnification. Once the item has passed inspection, it undergoes an initial polishing.
