Customized Name Necklaces Are Less Expensive Than They Used To Be
As recently as 10 years ago, custom jewelry was only available to the very well to do. Custom Pendants were mainly carved out of wax and then cast. This requires a crazy level of skill and expertise and was very expensive. There were CAD programs back then. However, they were very expensive and not that functional. Then there is the casting and was growing equipment. It was so expensive that only the largest manufacturers could afford it. Consequently, it kept prices very high and out of reach of everyday people.
In the last 5 years all of that has changed. CAD programs have dramatically dropped in price while becoming far better. This has left wax carving as a dying art. Hardly anybody uses that technique anymore. Additionally, casting and wax growing equipment have substantially dropped in price. This has allowed much smaller outfits to be able to get into creating custom jewelry.
As a result, custom jewelry has become available to almost everyone. Looking for custom pendants or customized name necklaces? Contact your local custom jeweler to see what the can do for you!
