Gemstone Scanning

March 12, 2018 – By Becca Golliher

Unique-shaped gemstones add a dazzling touch to jewelry pieces, but can be a challenge. The B9 Scan 500 enables jewelers to accommodate every angle, creating a uniform design while cutting down on design and prototyping time by 80%.

Whether a jeweler uses gemstones they cut themselves or a customer brings a precious stone from a family heirloom, designing a piece around that gem must be done with care in order to ensure that it isn’t broken, chipped, or loosely mounted.

Not every gemstone is shaped the same way, and that’s part of what makes them so special and unique.

The B9 Scan 500 allows jewelers to scan these gemstones, directly placing the gemstone on the 3D model. With this in mind, jewelers and CAD software users can guarantee that their final product will fit the gemstone, no matter the symmetry, angles, or contour of the girdle.

Don’t try to make something fit and ruin it from cutting corners using other tactics that do not provide the amount of precision that is available to you. The blame falls on the jeweler, and not only is a beautiful gem put to waste, but is a costly expense for the retail shop to replace.

Instead, get a high-resolution scan in 5 minutes and create a perfect mounting with no imperfections - plus no more guessing if the resin model will need revision or worrying about breaking a stone. Now you can achieve a perfect fit each and every time. Weather scanning precious heirlooms or creating new works of art, this scanner will  bring your vision to life.
