It is possible to recreate lost or damaged items of jewellery either working from a photograph or as in this case using the remaining one of a pair of earrings. A CAD model was made and cast in 18ct white gold.
This shows the work in progress on the replacement earring, the casting has been prepared and the diamonds have begun to be set.
The finished result shows how accurately CAD can be utilised to match traditional techniques.
This customer wanted a sentimentally valuable but low cost, base metal ring to be reproduced in white gold with real sapphire and diamonds.
The ring was cast entirely in one piece.
