3d crystal is a 3d pattern which can be etched onto any smooth, heat-treated, carbon or ceramic material. The engraving procedure itself uses a laser beam to impregnate a pattern in the desired area, creating a unique design. Different kinds of materials can be used for the 3d engravings; glass, wood, stone, plastic and metal are some of the most commonly used materials. 3d crystal engraving offers many uniquely designed 3d crystal engraving products for various kinds of occasions and events.
However, what makes 3d crystal so different from all the rest? Most engravers use ink pad method to engrave on things; however, 3d crystal makes use of a special laser technology to etch its patterns. The laser, once inserted into the cavities of the piece, provides unique energy which melts the liquid crystal and creates that pattern. The laser engraver carefully plans the areas which require 3d crystal patterns, with the most intricate ones taking almost an hour to complete. After the job is done, the piece is then inspected to ensure that there are no errors and the final product is then completed using an epoxy resin to provide protection.
Most jewelry stores and online shops sell crystal jewelry which comes with engravings in either small fits (the smallest) or medium fits (the largest). Small fits are generally cheaper, but it still requires a great deal of work, since the crystal must be cut into very minute pieces. For instance, a small fit crystal necklace may take several days to craft, while a medium fit necklace can easily take one day or even two days to complete. A medium fit, on the other hand, gives you more options when choosing your crystal necklace. Since there are a number of crystals that can be put into a particular shape, you can choose between shapes such as heart, diamond, oval, round and square.
Most jewelry stores sell jewelry that has engravings in either small fits or medium fits, but the more unique the jewelry is, the higher the cost. If the budget is large enough, however, it is possible to have your crystal jewelry custom-made. Small fits can be achieved with a small amount of money and time, while medium fits can take up to one month to complete. A large fit, on the other hand, can take up to three months to complete. In this case, the cost will more than outweigh the time required for engraving.
You can have your small or large fits custom-made by sending in digital images of your personal designs. Since the engraver works with the photos you send him/her, he/she can then create a digital pattern of your design and see what you have in mind. With these kinds of large fits, it may be possible to have your jewelry appear in only a few dimensions, such as a quarter of an inch, or half an inch, or just a few tiny dimensions. Or, you might want your crystal jewelry to be a solid piece with many intricate facets radiating outward.
As mentioned above, the price for 3d crystals depends on the size of the crystal jewelry piece. For example, while a small ring would require a large crystal, a large bracelet would only need a small crystal. Also, the cost of engraving decreases as the size of the jewelry piece goes up. This means that small crystals are less expensive than they used to be. Prices for larger crystals are also generally more expensive than smaller crystals, however, depending on the type of quality you desire.
