Port City Jewelers is one of very few jewelry designers anywhere to use computer modeling in house. Your jewelry is created with a sophisticated 3-D modeling program called Rhino Gold and a lifelike render (image) is created and emailed to you. If you love it, great! We'll proceed. If you want to make some changes, we do that right in the program. When the design is perfect, a precise wax model is printed on our state of the art 3D printer.  The CAD Design is sent to the 3D Printer where it is printed based off all the specifications previously discussed in your final design consultation.

Here is a couple of 3D printed waxes for example:

THE LOST WAX CAST METHOD

To cast your jewelry we first put the 3D printed wax into a cylinder and fill it with a special plaster. It goes into the kiln overnight, melting the wax out of the cylinder and leaving a perfect negative impression of your jewelry. Then we put the cylinder into our casting equipment, light the torch, melt the metal to shoot it into the mold! It's a dramatic and fun process to watch. Next, your jewelry has an initial polishing, gems and diamonds are set, pieces are assembled, and a second polish is given before final inspection. We want it to be perfect! It's quite a process and one that we take very seriously. Every step and detail is so important and we want to give you the perfect piece!

Here is an image of a few rings casted in one batch:
