The goal of this paper is to present the methodology for the development of new rings, from the physical prototype built by the designer. We show the problems related to 3D shape digitizing, surface modeling from clouds of points, and the building of the different rings corresponding to the fingers diameters. The role of stereolithography is shown in a first way as a mean for the reproduction of the CAD model, and in a second way, as the link to the industrial molds for gold casting. In the second part of this paper, we propose to give some other examples of case studies to complete the application of our methodologies in the jewelry field.
