CNC jewelry services
As a manufacturer of jewelry with almost 30 years of experience, we built a modern machine park, so in addition to the production itself, we also offer other jewelry solutions, such as CNC services, foundry services, galvanization, soldering, production of personalized jewelry and production of advertising jewelry (see the tabs above). In this article we will focus on CNC services including laser cutting jewelry and laser marking jewelry. The CNC comes from the term: Computer Numerical Control – which means automated control of processing metals and other materials. These processes bring production of jewelry components to a higher level – in terms of quality, quantity and speed of orders realization.
Laser cutting jewelry
Metal laser cutting services have broadened the possibilities of making jewelry findings, in the form of attractive and sometimes very complex shapes – even in case of very small elements. A tiny beam of laser radiation facilitates a precise cutting line, and also gives unlimited possibilities of creating shapes and decorations. Advanced laser technology allows us very accurately reproduce projects developed by the use of specialized computer software. In addition to the fact that we create our own, innovative and unique jewellery designs, we also implement individual ideas of our clients based on vector projects. If clients don’t have dedicated projects for computer software, we are also able to make a project of laser-cut jewelry, based on the submitted sketches, photos, and even descriptions of ideas.
Jewelry components are cut on specially designed and automated machines for mass production, therefore we are able to produce very large orders in a quick and effective way. We currently provide laser-cut silver findings in the following thicknesses: 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7 , 0.8, 1.0 and 1.2 mm, and gold findings in 0.3 and 0.5 mm. The minimum quantity for order 1.0 or 1.2 thickness is 1000 grams. Our standard offer of laser cut elements includes a wide selection of round, oval and rectangle pendants of various sizes and thicknesses. Apart from classic shapes, very popular are pendants with meaning, which are very often chosen for a gift. Most common are: hearts, infinity signs, baby’s feet, angels, medallions, crosses, wings, letters, names and zodiac signs. We also supply various forms of stars, moons, plants and animals, as well as engraved dog tags and jewelry end tags. Depending on seasons and occasions, patterns such as snowflake, reindeer, Christmas tree, swallow, tree of life, clover, Easter bunny, shell, seahorse, dolphin, coffee bean, owl or bat, are in favor. The perfect example presenting the precision of cutting are openwork pendants, that require extraordinary accuracy of the cutting line.

Laser cut jewelry – examples
As a jewelry findings supplier we offer over 16,000 semi-finished products made of silver and gold, and many of them are laser cut. The broadest category includes pendants and connectors, but we also use laser-cut shapes to create stud earrings, cufflinks and charms bases, as well as hallmark tags. Laser cut elements offer many possibilities in jewelry making. Pendants and connectors can be combined with each other and with other elements like silver chains and jewelry bails, jump rings or jewelry clasps. They can decorate string bracelets, and be connected with earring wires – resulting as beautiful long earrings.
Laser cut components can also be soldered with silver posts, creating unique earrings, or with cufflinks mechanisms – creating fashionable jewelry for men.
