How It Works

Step 1: Search

Ever&Ever kit

Working alongside customers in your store, guide them through the latest collection of over 120 ring prototypes – from timeless styles to the freshest bridal looks. These low-cost, high quality style samples help focus your customer quickly on designs they like. All of these styles can be ordered as is from Stuller. Many can be viewed and ordered from with customized gem sizes and materials. You can also search over a thousand styles in the expanded collections inside CounterSketch® Studio.

Step 2: Customize

What if your customer wants to further personalize the design with a wider shank, more diamonds, less diamonds, or something else? That’s when Gemvision’s award-winning CounterSketch® Studio software allows you to work with your customer to customize the design right on screen in full 3D. You can make subtle changes or even add completely new elements and build from scratch in Freehand mode. Transform the sample on their hand from a design they like into a design they love.

Step 3: Order

At any point in the design process, you can quickly pull up diamond and gemstone details, as well as an estimate of the jewelry based on total metal weight. You can even show your customer the difference in metal quality prices in real time by simply selecting a different metal type and letting the software calculators update the price automatically. Once you and your customer are ready, you can order and transmit the finished 3D model to Stuller for manufacturing right from within the software.

Projet® 1200 3D Printer

When your customers need even more than beautiful images and your expert advice, we make it easy for them to say “I love it” with scaled and accurate physical model of their exact design. About the size of a coffee maker, and just as easy to operate, the PROJET® 1200 brings the excitement of 3D printing right into your store with affordable 3D printed models produced in less than two hours.
