computer-aided design

In the early days of jewelry making, designers would sit down with paper and pencil to sketch out a design, drawing and re-drawing until it was perfect. The drawing not only had to capture the beautiful design, but it also had to be completely accurate so it could be used in the process of hand-making the jewelry. If the designer wanted to create a slight variation on their original design, they would have to start the process over and create a new model from scratch.

Today, thanks to cutting-edge design technology, things are very different. CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer aided-manufacturing) are tools that generate traditional technical drawings on a computer and then manufacture the items designed on those computers. CAD creates three-dimensional models that allow designers to examine intricate designs up close from any angle, rotate and manipulate models onscreen just like a physical model, and even “weigh” the item before it’s constructed. CAM uses computer software and machinery to manufacture the products designed by CAD models.

What does all that have to do with jewelry design? A lot, it turns out. Here are some of the key benefits of using CAD/CAM systems in jewelry design.

  • CAD technology helps create designs that are both precise and complex — many of which would be almost impossible to do by hand.
  • With CAD, we can design pieces specifically for certain gem sizes, which helps increase accuracy, decrease errors, reduce production time and minimize the cost and waste of materials. In many cases, it minimizes the time taken up by trial and error and speeds up each step of the process.
  • If you aren’t happy with the way a piece of jewelry is progressing in the design stage, alterations and modifications can easily be made before the design is carried out. In the same vein, CAD allows us to see realistic images of virtual jewelry in its finished state before execution, making sure we get it just right.
  • It also gets you involved in the design process in a much more intimate way, which translates to a higher degree of personal expression in the custom-designed finished piece.
  • If your specially designed piece of jewelry happened to be lost or stolen, it can easily be recreated with your saved CAD file.

timepiece servicing

Luxury timepieces aren’t rendered obsolete when newer models are introduced. High-end watches are meant to be worn and treasured for decades. When they’re well cared for and serviced regularly, today’s watches will become tomorrow’s vintage classics.

Eiseman Jewels offers factory-authorized service either by our on-site watchmaker, our offsite workshop or through the manufacturer’s service centers in the USA or Switzerland.

No matter which of these avenues your watch takes to be serviced, the process is essentially the same. The watchmaker begins servicing your timepiece by disassembling the entire movement, inspecting each component and cleaning each piece thoroughly. Under magnification, each piece is inspected for damage, broken teeth on gears or bent parts, and damaged pieces are replaced as necessary. The case is checked for water resistance through the crystal and crown.

The movement is then reassembled, lubricated and tested for accuracy. While the movement is being tested, the outer parts will be cleaned and prepped for refinishing.

The case and bracelet are taped off to block the polishing wheel if it is not the proper wheel for a particular finish. This takes accuracy, skill and focus to ensure the edges and variations in finishing are just right.

The case is then sealed and water pressure-tested to ensure water resistance. This is carried out while the case is empty without a movement, just in case the resistance fails.

The timepiece is then carefully reassembled, with particular attention being paid to the reattachment of the hands to ensure proper calendar jumping. After full reassembly, the timepiece is rechecked for accuracy and cleaned by hand to remove any fingerprints or oils.

The timepiece is then ready to be returned to the client, beautifully serviced and refinished.

repurposing jewelry

Are you holding on to jewelry that you’ve inherited but which never seems to leave your jewelry box? You don’t wear it because it’s not your style, but you don’t want to get rid of it because of its sentimental value.

We are the Southwest’s most experienced estate jewelry buyers with a combined 100+ years of experience — a trusted name when it comes to your family’s jewelry.

• Return to the store to view the 3D drawings of your design. This is the time to be picky. Ask the designer to make any necessary changes so that the finished piece will match your vision. Don’t be afraid to rethink if something’s not working.

• The designer will make any changes and get your final approval before executing the design. The result will be a meaningful, one-of-a-kind piece that you designed yourself.

Some things to keep in mind as you design your new piece:

• There’s often a story behind a piece of heirloom jewelry or special memories of the family member to whom it once belonged. Sharing these stories with your jewelry designer will help inspire their work.

 

• Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your designer has seen it all when it comes to estate jewelry. They can take your ideas and visualize a finished piece.
