While one of the most substantial and important benefits derived from 3D printing technology today is the level of customization offered, we often tend to put the greater focus on how this will affect areas like the medical industry, as patients are able to experience a better quality of life due to personalized healthcare—but this applies to industrial, business, and personal applications very much as well.
3D printers and a wide variety of new products being rolled out on a continual basis by global manufacturers indeed are expanding the world in so many ways, but ultimately everything that is happening is due to creativity, resourcefulness, and the ability to choose from so many options and make changes easily—no matter the application.
AuGrav (Au from the symbol for gold on the periodic table and Grav from the art of engraving) is a jewelry manufacturer headquartered in Coimbatore, India that embraces the art of refinement allowed through technology—leading them after some time to a new platform that itself makes personalization a priority for those interested in fine jewelry, with an emphasis on 3D printing and gold and silver casting.
The inception of the company was inspired as founder Vivek Krishna searched for the perfect wedding gift for his sister. Looking for something completely unique, Krishna searched high and low for the perfect piece of jewelry, to no avail.
“My search went on for days and I visited every store in town, went to other cities on a hunt and also did an online search but did not stumble upon anything that impressed me,” said Krishna. “Finally I decided to design a piece of jewelery with my sister’s face sculpted and I also merged it with her sun sign. This gift was one with meaning and the joy on her face when she unwrapped it made the effort worth it. This experience sowed the seed in my mind to create augrav.com.”
With the motto that they make ‘Everything You into Jewelry,’ a wide range is offered for their clientele, to include:
- A wide range of rings
- Fun jewelry for kids
- Engraved coins
- Frames, toys, and more
They also empower you to design your own items, as you type in basic details for a desired item. AuGrav supplies suggestions, and then one of their team members gets in touch with you to discuss exact specifications.
“Now with the advent of 3D printers, we are making amazing products in gold,” Bharathidasan Moorthi of AuGrav told 3DPrint.com. “We have created tools (patent pending) to automate the entire design process, hence reducing time to manufacture and thus we’re able to ship most of our products in less than ten days all over the world.”
The team will help you choose any kind of jewelry which can be carved or engraved—and you too can even sculpt your loved one’s name or face into a product. AuGrav specializes in specialty engravings to include names, fingerprints, and even barcodes or voice wave forms.
Moorthi explains that as a newer startup, they have been working on their platform and over time have refined their business model—but really ‘nailed it’ over the last year, and soon will closing their first successful round of investment funding.
“The market is very huge, and we have made close to 200 happy customers,” Moorthi told 3DPrint.com, sharing that most of their clientele are interested in shopping for engagements, weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions.
They invite you to run wild in thinking of wonderful creations for your loved ones that will make an even bigger impact due to the special thought and personalization put into their gifts.
“The havoc created to buy the best gift is a thing of the past as we have arrived with the best option. Choose us and relax and be sure that you are creating history in your own way,” says the AuGrav team.
