Custom Design Jewellery CAD Services

We use the very latest CAD design software and rapid protyping technology, together with old-world hand made techniques to delivery the best possible styles and quality in our custom jewellery. CAD involves drawing your ring with the latest jewellery design CAD software. We then print in wax your ring and have it cast in the precious metal of your choice. The cast ring is then returned to our factory for hand cleanup, finishing and diamond or gemstone setting. CAD rings are more accurate, symmetrical, detailed and less costly than hand-made jewellery.

The firm Peter Shakes Jeweller Ltd. was highly recommended to me many years ago. Over the years Peter and his team have designed and handcrafted my solitaire engagement ring as well as a sapphire and diamond cluster ring. I have always been impressed with the advice, personal attention to detail, quality of the workmanhip and thrilled with the beautiful rings.

I recently returned to Peter Shakes Jeweller Ltd. to have my jewellery inspected, as it has been worn every day for the past 28 years, giving me great pleasure and has immense sentimental value. Peter personally inspected my jewellery and advised that the rings should be repaired and the clasp on a gold bracelet, worn every day for 10 years, should be built up. I was extremely appreciative of his advice as I would have been devastated to have lost any gemstones from my rings. The advice extended to ensuring that all items of jewellery were correctly specified on my insurance policy together with providing updated valuations for insurance purposes.

I was thrilled when I collected my rings to see them sparkling again, having been repaired and professionally cleaned and knowing that the diamonds are secure within the settings.

The team at Peter Shakes Jeweller Ltd. provide excellent service, are all very friendly, talented, and take great pride in producing high quality, timeless, handcrafted jewellery.
