3D Printing

VE AND VILE believes in making your beautiful and sustainable jewelry perfect every time

Through 3D printing VE AND VILE can make your unique jewelry without wasting the worlds water supply and using only the material needed in the exact correct place to make your jewelry peice last a lifetime.

Why We 3D Print Your Jewelry

3D printing generates less waste in creating products by only using exactly the material needed at every point in your peice. Mass produced jewelry accumulate in warehouses across the globe only to later be melted down without ever have been worn. By only making unqiue items on order we promote your unique self instead of mass production and mass consumption. Additionally water is wasted using traditional methods, while 3D printing eliminates the need for plaster, thereby removing the need for water to disolve it post-production.
Primarily we are happy to guarantee the lifetime and quality of your jewelry by using 3D printing we always get the same end result every time. This means that we know the exact strength of the prongs holding onto your precious diamond irrelevant of the weather that day or the human factor.

3D Printing Process

A digital file that is made through a CAD software or scanned data is transferred into a STL file. The original 3D data is then transformed into 2D layers for printing.
We use an Additive Manufacturing process for our 3D technology. In the 3D printer, a coat of precious metal powder is laid out. The powder is then solidified using lasers into a layer of the jewelry model. This process repeats continuously, melting and solidifying your jewelry, layer by layer, with the use of laser beams.
3D printing works around the clock to finish creating your custom jewelry. Using this form of technology allows jewelry to be produced within a few hours, rather than taking weeks for a traditional smith to make.
At the end stage of 3D printing, the loose powder is carefully brushed away for later use and your sparkling jewelry is ready for polishing!
