Service Description

Custom Design – At HTG Design Jewelers, our major work is custom design. As you browse through our galleries, the individuality and innovation of each piece is immediately evident. There are three techniques that might be used in the creative design process. Matrix Cad: At HTG Design Jewelers, we use the MatrixGold Cad program software, one of the most advanced computer aided design programs available. In this process the jewelry is first designed on the computer. The design process is shared with the customer through computer rendered images which can be viewed from numerous angles and even rotated 360° to see all surfaces. Once the design is approved, a 3D model is produced through milling or 3D printing. The model is then cast, cleaned, polished and the stones set. Here are pictures of the computer rendering and the finished piece of jewelry: Hand Fabrication: For this process the jewelry is created, start to finish, at the jewelers bench. Precious metals and various findings are formed and fabricated, then soldered together. Diamonds and gemstones are set and the end result is something that might look like this: Hand Carved Wax Models: In this process, a design is agreed upon, and the goldsmith carves it from wax. When the wax model is complete, the customer comes in for a viewing. On approval, the wax is cast through a process called ‘lost wax casting’. The cast metal is then cleaned and polished, stones are set and the entire piece is given a final polish. Your end result would look like this:
