Recent jewelry news, info and Carreras Events.
Canadian designer Noam Carver has been making jewelry has entire adult life. At 18, he apprenticed with a master jeweler in Montreal. That experience laid the foundation for his career as one of the top custom jeweler makers in the world.
Carreras is now an authorized Noam Carver dealer. The company will carry a bridal ring series. Customers can experience the rings online or in the store. His rings are lasting treasures that she will love forever.
Carver says his design process involves imagination, translation and implementation. He begins by thinking and dreaming about the piece. He then uses drawings and 3D printing to bring the design to life. Finally, the piece is assembled with some of the finest metals and stones in the world.
“With computer design and 3D printing, I harness the latest technological advances to expand my art, creating with a level of precision and excellence higher than ever thought possible,” Carver says.
Carver pays an inordinate amount of attention to detail. He wants his rings to be flawless and makes sure every aspect of a piece of jewelry is perfect.
That effort has won him numerous awards. They include: MJSA, Canadian Jeweler, National Jeweler, National Jeweler “Best Of”, and the 2017 Centurian Designer Award for an “Edwardian-inspired enameled engagement ring with a contemporary twist.”
