There’s no denying that computers and ever-changing technology have altered the landscape across industries – bespoke jewellery design is no exception. Combining the perfect mix of traditional crafting techniques and high-tech advancements can bring the most intricate designs to life. Utilising Computer Aided Design (CAD) and with the production of photographic realistic 2 dimensional images of a model / design we can give complete peace of mind to our customers prior to production. At Blair and Sheridan we can offer in-house 3d CAD jewellery design where a particular item requires it.
Following a face to face design consultation (either in our showroom or remotely if required) with you to discuss ideas, agree budget, diamond/stone size (if applicable):
From line drawing through the process of CAD drawing, view the 3D video simulation here
From here, the making of your design will progress into manufacture, again in-house by our experienced goldsmiths and stone setters.
Being able to design, CAD and craft all bespoke jewellery from our premises is what makes Blair and Sheridan so unique. We don’t rely on the logistics or timings of external suppliers giving us complete autonomy. The result is a truly bespoke and personalised service.
With the use of CAD we can extract the element of doubt offering a crystal clear representation therefore relying less on mental visualisation. Giving the opportunity to tweak the metal /stone / size etc. and see these alterations on screen you will have much better peace of mind prior to creation. From a production side, CAD generates definitive sizes and weights required for materials. This allows us to produce completely accurate quotes and minimise wastage in the production – a saving which we can pass on to the client. Even seemingly simple pieces of jewellery – perhaps an unusual size/shape/breadth – can be quoted precisely using a CAD drawing.
The final stages of CAD drawing are photo- realistic, final design (right), view the CAD video here
With advancements in technology and communication it is possible to go through the entire design process remotely – you can make a virtual appointment with our design team here.
