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.

computer-aided design

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.

To explore the possibilities of designing your own jewelry via CAD/CAM with us, visit Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

At Eiseman Jewels, we travel the world to bring you the very best in jewelry and timepieces. And every summer, our travels take us to the luxurious Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, where the Couture show hosts the who’s who in the luxury jewelry and timepiece industry. This is the only venue in the United States to present a curated collection of more than 200 preeminent designers and brands, and more than 4,000 buyers from the world’s most distinguished retailers attend the show each year.

Here are some of the strongest jewelry trends we spotted at this year’s Couture show.

1. Tassels

Our collective fascination with tassels showed no signs of stopping at Couture. They continue to lend effortless flair to earrings, necklaces and bracelets — especially those with an Art Deco influence.

2. Pearls

The recent resurgence of pearls has gone a long way toward shedding this jewelry staple’s prim-and-proper reputation. There are a ton of artful designs that bring this classic into the modern age.

3. Pastels

A palette of soft, delicate hues such as light blues, greens and pinks was everywhere at the show. Even if you’re not big into pastels, you can rock this trend with a big pink cocktail ring.

4. Fan-Shaped Earrings

SJE2555W (L)

Fan-shaped jewelry, like these from Sutra Jewels, was another huge trend we saw at the show. Earrings make a natural fit for fan shapes, which can be quite dramatic when strands of stones hang from them.

5. Engagement Ring Trends

The Solitaire

The epitome of simplicity and sophistication, the classic solitaire continues to be a popular choice, regardless of the shape of the center diamond. Instead of spending a majority of the budget on the ring itself, many brides are opting to place all of the emphasis on the star of the show: the center diamond.

The Three-Stone Ring

A three-stone engagement ring features a (usually larger) center diamond framed by two perfectly matched side diamonds. The most classic three-stone engagement rings feature round brilliant diamonds, but this durable, long-wearing style looks beautiful with any diamond shape, metal or setting.

alternative engagement rings

While many women dream of their perfect diamond engagement ring, others desire something more unconventionally eye-catching. Brides who wish to stand out from the crowd have a variety of options to consider when choosing an alternative engagement ring. Here are three of our favorite options for couples who choose to forgo the traditional diamond ring.

Vintage Rings

alternative engagement rings

Technically speaking, any diamond ring over 50 years old is considered vintage. This means that the vintage engagement ring category encompasses a wide range of styles to fit any bride’s personality. Not only do vintage pieces offer unique designs and inherent charm, but they are often made with exceptional craftsmanship and tend to be more affordable than their modern counterparts.

Furthermore, vintage engagement rings make instant heirlooms that can be passed down to future generations. They often appeal to couples who don’t have an heirloom ring in their families, but who wish to start their own family tradition.

Stackable Rings

alternative engagement rings

Stackable rings allow for a new level of personalization in bridal jewelry, as well as more options for wear. Stackables are completely customizable — perfect for women who like to regularly change up their look. These styles allow the wearer to mix and match different stackable ring styles depending on her mood or outfit. They’re supremely stylish and fashion-forward — take it from designer Diane von Furstenberg, who wears 26 diamond bands that her finacé surprised her with to represent the 26 years he knew her before they were married.

One thing that sets stackable rings apart from other styles is that you can continue to add rings to mark important milestones in your life. While this stacked wedding ring look is fairly new to the U.S., it has been popular in other parts of the world for a while. In Scandinavia, for instance, it’s common for women to wear three rings: one for engagement, one for marriage and one for motherhood.

Gemstone Rings

The words “diamond” and “engagement ring” have been nearly synonymous for almost a century. These days, however, many brides-to-be wish to stand out with an alternative stone in their engagement ring. But some gemstones are better suited than others for the task.

While diamonds are the hardest and most durable gemstones, sapphires and rubies are a close second, making them a logical choice for the daily wear of an engagement ring. They are the most resistant to scratches and chips and, with proper care, will retain their luster the longest.

Sapphires

alternative engagement rings

At 9 on the Mohs Scale, sapphires are the second-hardest mineral and about a third of the price of diamonds. Sapphire engagement rings have recently skyrocketed in popularity, perhaps due to Kate Middleton‘s stunning blue sapphire engagement ring, which was previously worn by Prince William’s mother, the late Princess Diana.

While sapphires are typically blue precious stones, they also come in other colors, such as peach, pink, yellow, green and white. In fact, Princess Eugenie of York (daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York) recently became engaged to longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank with a gold ring featuring a halo of diamonds surrounding a coral pink padparadscha sapphire from Sri Lanka.

Rubies

alternative engagement rings

Rubies are also an extremely popular choice for engagement rings due to their rich, romantic red hue. Like sapphires, they rank 9 on the Mohs Scale, but unlike sapphires, rubies often cost more than their diamond counterparts. Sarah Ferguson, mother of Princess Eugenie, once sported her own pink ruby engagement ring from Prince Andrew, who chose the stone to match his bride’s red hair.

gemstone watches

At Eiseman Jewels, we know that choosing the highest quality materials possible is an essential link in the long chain of processes that go into manufacturing an exceptional product. That’s why we sell timepieces set with only the finest gems.

Through their unique brilliance and the extreme care taken in their setting, these high-quality precious stones give the following gem-set timepieces unparalleled prestige and style.

Tank Anglaise

tank anglaise

The Tank story takes an unexpected turn with the Tank Anglaise. This variation’s streamlined design reinterprets the original model and adds a new dimension. The 18-karat rhodiumized white gold bracelet is set with 658 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 5.22 carats. The 18-karat rhodiumized white gold case is set with 109 brilliant-cut diamonds, and the nine-sided crown is set with a brilliant-cut diamond totaling 0.88 carats. It features a lacquered silvered flinqué dial, blued-steel sword-shaped hands and a Sapphire crystal, and it’s water-resistant up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Tank Américaine

tank americane

A watch for true connoisseurs, the Tank Américaine features an elongated case with a pronounced curve. It playfully alternates between round edges and angles. The 18-karat rhodiumized white gold case is set with 142 brilliant-cut diamonds, and the faceted crown is set with a brilliant-cut diamond totaling 1.37 carats. It features a silvered flinqué dial, blued-steel sword-shaped hands, a mineral crystal and an 18-karat rhodiumized white gold bracelet. It is water-resistant up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Ballon Bleu De Cartier Watch

ballon bleu

Between the convex curves of the case, the guilloché dial and the satin-finish bracelet links of the bracelet, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch is a true work of art. Its 18-karat rhodiumized white gold case and dial are set with 123 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 1.21 carats and 466 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 1.62 carats, respectively. The fluted crown is set with a sapphire cabochon, and Roman numerals are guided on their path by a deep blue winding mechanism. It also features blued-steel sword-shaped hands, a Sapphire crystal and an 18-karat rhodiumized white gold bracelet. It is water-resistant up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Rolex Pearlmaster 39

pearlmaster

The Rolex Pearlmaster 39 is Rolex’s consummate jewelry watch. Featuring the softly curved lines of the Pearlmaster design, it is characterized by a uniquely rich dial and exquisite gem settings of diamonds in 18-karat Everose gold — an exclusive 18-karat pink gold alloy patented by Rolex and cast in its own foundry. The Aubergine dial — designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection —features diamond-set hour markers that shine brightly. Both sensual and sophisticated, the solid gold Pearlmaster bracelet is always fitted with a concealed Crownclasp.

Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the Pearlmaster’s new generation 3235 movement is a certified Swiss chronometer. And of course, we can’t forget one of the most distinctive and recognizable Rolex features: the Cyclops lens. It enhances the date aperture, magnifying the date display for easy reading.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 II

yacht master

Rolex set its Yacht Master 40 II in iconic gemstones for the first time ever. A crown of multicolored jewels graces the rotating bezel — 32 sapphires, eight tsavorites and one diamond, to be exact. It also features an 18-karat Everose gold case, a glossy black dial with oversized white lume plots, and Everose surrounds. The multicolored bezel pops against the black Oysterflex rubber strap and 18-karat Everose Oysterlock clasp. Though gems have graced Rolex’s Yacht-Master bezels before, they’ve never been on the 40 mm model, and they’ve never been this vibrant. Water resistant up to 330 feet, this is the perfect summer watch for the Rolex connoisseur.

setting styles

When it comes to designing jewelry, choosing the right setting is just as important as choosing the perfect metal or gemstone. In jewelry making, a “setting” refers to the metal base that holds a stone in place. Each type of setting is designed to enhance a particular stone’s beauty and appearance.

With what seems like an infinite amount of choices when it comes to stone and setting combinations, the setting you choose says a lot about your taste and personality. The descriptions below will help you select the perfect setting type that speaks to you.

Pavé

setting styles

In this elegant setting type, diamonds or gemstones are set low and very close together, and are fixed with small prongs that look like beads. This setting allows light to reflect off the diamond’s many facets, making the surface of the ring appear to be encrusted with brilliant stones.

Channel

setting styles

In channel settings, diamonds are suspended between two rails of metal called channels. The stones are nestled side-by-side with no metal in between, creating a sleek, contemporary look. Channel settings work best with princess cut diamonds (or other straight-edged cuts) that create a continuous line of stones across the band without any space in between.

Prong

setting styles

In this classic setting, two or more prongs wrap around the crown of a stone to secure it in place. This mounting style highlights a stone by minimizing the amount of metal used and allowing more light to pass through, which amplifies the brilliance of the jewelry. This prong setting is suitable for almost all diamond shapes, making it one of the most popular setting types.

 

Bezel

setting styles

With a bezel setting, a metal rim surrounds a diamond by the girdle to secure it in place. Bezels can have straight edges, scalloped edges, or can be molded into any shape to accommodate the stone. The main practical advantage of this type of setting is security. A bezel setting is custom-made for the stone that it will hold, so it is always exactly the right size. This dramatic setting style can also create the illusion of a larger stone.

 

Bead and Bright Cut

setting styles

A bead and bright cut setting is a very popular and versatile setting style that uses a metal engraving technique involving chiseling the metal with a polished tool. The result is a highly reflective surface that makes the stone appear larger.

For more information on different setting types and how you can design your perfect piece of jewelry, visit the experts at Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center.

 

estate blog

Eiseman Jewels is the ultimate destination for jewelry connoisseurs. We are home to some of the world’s most remarkable pieces of estate and heirloom jewelry — jewelry that comes with a sense of deep history and unique character that sets it apart from other pieces. It is often one-of-a-kind and always timeless.

Here are just a few of the legendary jewelry designers and artisans whose creations you can expect to see in the Eiseman Estate Collection.

Henry Dunay

henry dunay estate

Henry Dunay began his career when he started working as a jewelry apprentice in New York City at the age of 14. He worked his way up the ranks to become a master model maker and setter. In 1956, at the age of just 21, he started his own firm and quickly found fame after winning the De Beers Diamond International Award. Known for his bold designs, sensuous curves and signature finishes, Henry Dunay has solidified his position as a leading jewelry designer, artist and trendsetter in the world of fine jewelry.

Jean Mahie

Jean Mahie estate

Father and daughter-in-law design team Jean and Jacline Mazard were among the first artists to create their own work with their own brand name, Jean Mahie, and have it displayed at leading jewelry stores such as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. From the moment they started their company in 1970, Jacline insisted that everything she made should be one-of-a-kind. With design studios in New York and the Bahamas, the company became known for its free-form, primitive designs with hammered finishes and melted metal designs. Pieces such as the ones pictured are becoming increasingly rare, as Jacline is no longer designing.

David Webb

David Webb estate

David Webb was a self-taught jewelry designer who, in his early years, worked for several large design houses such as Tiffany and Harry Winston. He went on to found David Webb, the luxury American jewelry house, in 1948 in New York City. Bold, attention-grabbing designs and vibrant gems in 18-karat yellow gold characterize the David Webb collection.

Julius Cohen

Julius Cohen estate

Julius Cohen began his jewelry career in 1929, at the age of 16. In 1956, he established Julius Cohen Jeweler, Inc., with the belief that creating a special relationship with each customer on a personal basis was the only way to do business. The company is among America’s most celebrated and award-winning jewelry design firms of the 20th century. Julius Cohen’s unique, dedicated marketing style of visiting and servicing customers in their own homes or offices or the company’s Madison Avenue studio in New York remains the cornerstone of the business to this day.

Buccellati

Buccellati estate

Mario Buccellati opened the doors of his first jewelry boutique on Largo Santa Margherita in Milan in 1919. Today, almost 100 years later, a timeless design aesthetic and refined craftsmanship remain at the heart of the Buccellati business. The house’s distinguished Milanese heritage — along with an unyielding desire to create objects of rare beauty — has established its distinct, inimitable style.

Every piece of pre-owned jewelry at Eiseman Jewels has undergone a thorough inspection, lovingly restored to like-new conditions, and comes with a warranty guaranteeing its quality. Peruse our stunning selection of estate designs at Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

sutra

Sutra Jewels was born of a collaboration between Arpita and Divyanshu Navlakha, the husband-and-wife team who founded the brand in 2008. The two had similar upbringings in two different regions of India. Arpita was raised in western India by a family that manufactured commercial jewelry, while Divyanshu’s specialized in traditional Indian jewelry out of northern New Delhi.

Along with her husband’s expertise in fine gem sourcing, Arpita’s limitless design creativity fuses a remarkable use of color with innovative construction. Each piece reflects the couple’s intense personality and chemistry in tangible form.

Eiseman Jewels sat down with Arpita to ask her more about the story of Sutra.

Who was your idol or muse growing up?

Growing up, I submerged myself in my father’s craft and began my obsession with gemstones. I always turned to the beautiful landscape and nature of my home country for inspiration. There was never a particular person — it was more so the world around me.

As Sutra’s sole designer, where do you draw your inspiration from?

sutraI mostly draw inspiration from either nature or architecture. Both have a special space in my heart. I have always been intrigued by flowers, birds and buildings with beautiful points and windows.

What’s one word you’d use to describe the Sutra brand?

Individualistic. It is the perfect word to describe my designs and the type of woman who wears them.

Tell us about your inspiration for your new collection.

sutra

We are focusing on the launches of our feather, butterfly and tassel collections, all of which possess great elements of movement and fluidity. The feather collection was inspired by my fond memories of peacocks wandering around my home country. The silhouette of the feathers demonstrates the ability the peacock has to spread its wings.

The butterfly collection was inspired by my recollections of butterflies fluttering about the Mumbai Gardens of Maharashtra. After the birth of my daughter, I returned with my sketchpad to the same botanical oasis I enjoyed as a child and created the depictions from memory. The majestic creature held a new, deeper meaning after I became a mother.

What is something we may not know about you or Sutra Jewels?

I am actually quite shy. My designs are my alter ego, in a way. They allow me a creative outlet to express myself.

What’s your favorite piece at the moment?

sutraOur incredible sapphire marquise cocktail ring with marquise diamonds surrounding it.

When you’re designing pieces for Sutra, what kind of woman do you envision wearing them?

She is the type of woman who decides and defines her own style. Her preferences are bold and her taste is always exceptional.

Which celebrity or public figure were you most excited to see wearing Sutra’s designs on the red carpet or to an event? Who would you love to see wear Sutra next?sutra

Having Michelle Obama wear our jewelry during her time as First Lady was an extremely high honor. We also had an incomparable fashion moment with Jennifer Lopez on the Met Gala red carpet in 2015. We would love to see Kate Middleton wear Sutra — that would be a dream.

What else can we look forward to seeing from Sutra next?

The new collections explore using multiple gems married into one harmonious, elaborate yet still very wearable piece. We are also incorporating multi-use functions such as converter pieces that maximize wearability. We recently introduced the bracelet-to-choker combination in the line.

schepps

Seaman Schepps burst onto the jewelry scene at the turn of the 20th century with designs that challenged the status quo and defined a new style for the American woman. His clientele included Coco Chanel, Katherine Hepburn, the Duchess of Windsor and members of the Du Pont, Mellon and Rockefeller families, which led him to become known as “America’s Court Jeweler.”

We sat down with Anthony Hopenhajm, owner and designer of Seaman Schepps, for an inside look at this enduring and historic brand.

The Seaman Schepps brand has a very rich history — tell us a little bit about it.

Seaman Schepps himself was born in Manhattan, the child of European immigrants. He started the company in 1904. In his lifetime, he realized the American dream of working hard and building a world-renowned brand from the ground up. He left a legacy for his children, who assumed prominent roles in the worlds of fashion and literature.

How do the current Seaman Schepps designs reflect the brand’s history?

seaman_schepps_featured_collection-3

Fine designs stand the test of time, as is evident in the jewels Seaman Schepps offers today — many of which were first created in the 40s and 50s and continue to be sought out.

Who were some of the notable figures Seaman Schepps worked with?

Seaman Schepps numbered among his clients many American First Families, from the Roosevelts to the Kennedys (including fashion icon Jackie Kennedy), as well as members of the English, Danish, Dutch and Greek royal families.

What is one thing we may not know about Seaman Schepps — the man and the brand?

Although he was originally from New York, Seaman Schepps’ first shops were in California. After experiencing limited success, he moved back to New York and opened his first shop in the 1920s around the corner from the Algonquin Hotel and its famed Round Table, where he attracted a loyal following among the stars of stage and screen.

What makes Seaman Schepps different from other designers?

Our heritage of signed and numbered designs is still in demand today and will continue to be sought out by fashionable women and collectors tomorrow.

What are your favorite pieces in the current collection? 

seaman_schepps

I love our Link Bracelet and Silhouette Earring in various woods and 18-karat gold. And the mix of precious and semi-precious stones that create a fantastic collage of color in the Rio Bracelet, Multi-Baroque Necklaces and Bubble Earrings make them favorites, too.

When you’re designing pieces, who do you envision wearing them? 

Our greatest compliment is when a mother and daughter can step into our shop and each walk out wearing one of our iconic pieces that may have been created several decades earlier.

Other than past designs, what inspires today’s Seaman Schepps pieces?

Rare original stones have been an inspiration throughout the history of the company and continue to be to this day.

What can we look forward to seeing from Seaman Schepps?

seaman_schepps

We’ve long been known as innovators for our daring use of unusual materials and combinations of stones, and we continue to bring cutting-edge original designs to our American and international clientele. This season will feature combinations of precious green Burmese jade with ruby, an ivory substitute in the form of a renewable vegetable nut, and our new home collection of hard stone clocks, frames and bowls in blue lapis lazuli, clear rock crystal and natural banded gray agate.

How would you describe the Seaman Schepps brand in one word?

Original.
