Traditional crafts, modern tools​

When manufacturing jewelry, a multitude of different materials is used nowadays, in particular precious metals and alloys. Traditionally, the industry has always worked with a lot of engravings (but ones produced mechanically) or with methods such as etching. While in the past an important reason to produce gold inlay engravings on expensive pieces was to personalize them or to add a meaningful inscription, nowadays creative designs of jewelry pieces, also in the area of fashion jewelry, have become ever more important. With laser technology, precious metals such as gold can be lasered as well as all other metals can be laser-engraved.
