The company devotes much attention to education and learning young designers. When Uroš Hohkravt was invited by Higher Vocational College, to take the place of a regular lecturer for computer-aided design (3D computer graphics), design process and artistic expression through the metal (goldsmith’s trade), he gladly accepted it.

One of the merits of professional school is certainly an emphasis on practical methods of learning and solving concrete problems. By the help of close contact with industry and professional qualifications of lecturers, its students are provided with very specific and targeted knowledge.

The modern way of developing, designing and manufacturing of jewelry consists of a series of technological processes, controlling of which is essential, especially when it comes to the manufacturing of individual jewelry. The same goes for signet ring, which was produced by using modern technologies. We started by modeling and visualization in Rhinoceros 4.0, special emphasis was given to examining the heraldry, which provided the basis for a design of family coat of arms. The next stage in the process is production of 3D print through technology Solidscape. The final product is cast on the basis of wax model.

Material: white gold, coated with Rhodium
