Typically, we are willing to wait quite a long time for items that are custom made, because they are unique, often one of a kind. But what if designers didn’t have to wait that long for a custom piece of 3D printed jewelry? Customization and speedier production frequently come together in 3D printed jewelry, as you can order custom pieces designed from a specific date or even a sound wave. Now in response to high demand, Brooklyn-headquartered RIVA Precision Manufacturing, which offers designer-driven manufacturing solutions for the fine jewelry industry, has developed a comprehensive 3D printed jewelry department.
“RIVA has been manufacturing fine jewelry for thirty years, and 3D printing for the past fifteen. Our experience means that we know what high quality 3D printing should look like,” said Ted Doudak, RIVA’s CEO. “With the end in mind, we work diligently to ensure integrity, from customer service to the final product. We launched RIVA Print to offer our expertise and services to the trade, across the United States.”
RIVA has now launched its expedited 3D printing services to the jewelry industry. The company uses resin to 3D print high resolution pieces with high surface output, which ensures that the surface quality of the jewelry is impeccable. In addition, RIVA is also integrating cross technologies to accompany what is being 3D printed.
The major focus is on quality customer service, with an additional emphasis on utilizing the latest technological advances, such as 3D printing.
“I am very excited to launch our printing services to the industry. It is only natural for RIVA, as an integrated manufacturer, to open the doors of 3D Printing wide to the industry, making it easily accessible,” said Jerry Taylor, Director of Product Development for RIVA. “Now, customers have one place to get printing, casting, chain assembly, setting, and finishing done for their custom jewelry and small-scale jewelry collections. Full integration with production, speed, and high-quality workmanship is a hallmark of the business.”
Depending on which type of 3D printer is used, the price point, and the size of the piece, customers can receive the jewelry they order anywhere from the same day the order is placed to three weeks later.
“The technology we have purchased will help us run an effective printing service bureau. Ultimately, smooth surface technology through RIVA Print offers exceptional production,” said Jennifer Theokary, the Manager of RIVA’s new 3D Print Department. “The new department has been created with customer service in mind, working backwards to ensure all touchstones are covered along the way. We guarantee satisfaction, alongside the exceptional quality our manufacturing has always been known for.”
If you are interested in using the 3D print department’s new B2B service, you can automatically upload your 3D model (up to ten at a time), which the department director will access. Then, the website will generate a real-time quote for the piece; if you want to edit your jewelry, or the 3D printing process used to manufacture it, you just need to pay a one-time flat fee. Once the final file has been approved by RIVA, you can choose if you’d prefer to pick up your 3D printed jewelry or have it delivered. You will then receive an email confirmation, your receipt, and a time estimate for the piece.
