Custom Jewelry with Computer Aided Design CAD/CAM
Custom Jewelry with Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing
For decades, Matthew’s Jewelers has taken great pride in traditional modes of design. For years, we have created award-winning jewelry using hand-carved molds, wax prototypes and gold casts. Today, Matthew’s Jewelers combines the art of traditional design with the extraordinary capabilities of modern technology.
With much enthusiasm, we are pleased to announce the new state-of-the-art “tool in our shed” called Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
With this state-of-the-art technology, Matthew’s Jewelers designs virtual 3D jewelry on-screen and creates photo-realistic images of your custom-created piece. This amazing computer software gives you the opportunity to experience your custom design in 3D and participate in the process like never before. It enables you to view and “visually feel” a finished piece of jewelry before it’s made. It gives us the opportunity to make enhancements or evolve your vision on screen. So you know exactly what your piece will be before it’s actually made.
Of course, there are still many designs that lend themselves better to being done in the traditional ways and there are also many instances when we use both the CAD and hand-made techniques in creating jewelry. We invite you to stop in and take a tour of our factory to experience fine jewelry design in real-time using the new state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology.
