Design and Manufacturing: 

       This ring is a custom, one off design.  The band has a "twisted scalloped" design and is accented with milgrain edging.  The center diamond is held in place with a six prong setting with rounded tips. 

       The design was created in CAD (computer aided design) using Matrix Gold.  Matrix is a parametric based program specifically used for jewelry.  A 3D resin model was printed, and from that a mold was created for casting using a "lost wax process", named for  the fact that the resin model in burned away to create the mold.  This is a one-off piece that will never be recreated except by client request.

Your team:

       Tom Voelker - Designer / wax models / photographer

       Jessica - Casting and metals

       Matt - Finishout jeweler
