Many talented artists carve one-of-a-kind gems for individual goldsmiths. But for manufacturers who produce jewelry in volume, contemporary carved gems have been hard to obtain. Ultrasonic carving technology gives manufacturers the ability to design and create high-quality, modern gem carvings suitable to their specific line of jewelry.
