Cooksongold, the UK’s biggest supplier of jewelry-making equipment, has teamed up with Italian jeweler B.M.C. for a jewelry 3D printing partnership. B.M.C. will use Cooksongold’s Precious M 080 3D printer to offer a “complete 3D precious metal service.”

We’ve been talking about 3D printed jewelry more or less since our website began, but the last few weeks have seen some especially glistening examples of both additive ornaments and the machines used to make them.

That’s partly because we just witnessed the JCK Las Vegas jewelry trade show, the world’s largest event for the jewelry industry. A number of jewelry 3D printing specialists brought their wares to the Nevada showcase, including XYZprinting with its new Nobel Superfine DLP 3D printer, and EnvisionTEC, which was debuting a new 3D printer material tray for its desktop 3D printers.

The dust has barely settled from JCK Las Vegas, but the 3D printed jewelry news keeps coming thick and fast. Today, UK jewelry supplier Cooksongold has announced a partnership with Italian jeweler B.M.C. that will see the latter use the former’s Precious M 080 3D printer (built by EOS) to offer a “complete 3D precious metal service.”

B.M.C. says its use of the Precious M 080 will enhance its Specialised Services and Products operations, while honoring the company’s traditional “values.” The 3D printer was the first “Direct Precious Metal 3D Printing system” designed exclusively for the jewelry, watch, and precious metals industries.

“We are always looking to incorporate the latest technology and production possibilities,” said Carlo Massavelli, CEO and Chairman of B.M.C. “Direct Precious Metal 3D printing with the M 080 system provides us with another tool and production method which will ensure we can continue to push the boundaries of jewel and watch creation.”

Cooksongold, for its part, says it is excited to see the M 080 used at the “elite level” of jewelry making. Valenza-based B.M.C. purportedly fits that bill, as it claims to offer “specialized services and products from creation to final design encompassing innovative and cutting-edge production techniques remaining at the forefront of jewel creation.”

“We are delighted to be working with B.M.C. for the development of precious metal 3D printing to fully exploit its capabilities and production application in the high-end jewelry supply chain,” said Cooksongold’s Managing Director Martin Bach.

Cooksongold has been at the forefront of several 3D printed jewelry innovations. Last year, the company released a platinum 3D printing powder for its jewelry-making 3D printers. It has also made strides with 3D printed gold.
