RhinoJewel is a professional jewelry design software which lets you create 3D models of jewelry and other luxury items easily, precisely and quickly.
It is suitable for both novice users as well as experienced CAD designers and features the most comprehensive range of jewelry-specific tools to help you through every stage of the design process.
Models created with RhinoJewel can be used to generate outstanding photo-realistic renders and are characterized by absolute accuracy of dimensions, a feature which can be replicated in the real world by means of the best Rapid Prototyping solutions currently available.
RhinoJewel adds to Rhino 3D an extensive collection of jewelry-specific tools divided into four main groups: Metal Tools, Gem Tools, Bonus Modeling Tools and tools related to SWAROVSKI GEMS. As always, you also have at your disposal the complete range of classic Rhino Tools, many of which are also found as a Rhinojewel-Enhanced version which boosts and optimizes their application in jewelry.
Rhinojewel Metal Tools
The RhinoJewel Metal Tools focus on those aspects of the modeling and creation process related to making metal parts of jewelry.
Rhinojewel Gem Tools
The RhinoJewel Gem Tools are mainly used when working with a variety of different gem cuts or during those stages of the modeling process when we are required to prepare an item of jewelry for the setting of gems.
SWAROVSKI GEMS Tools
This group contains tools relating to SWAROVSKI GEMS, the new product brand for Swarovski's Genuine Gemstones and Created Stones. RhinoJewel has been the first and is to date the only jewelry design software to incorporate this library of precision-cut gemstones.
Rhinojewel Bonus Modeling Tools
The Bonus Modeling Tools include a range of simple tools that are a modified version of some classic Rhino tools, enhanced to boost their performance and optimize their use for the creation of jewelry.
Classic Rhino Tools
RhinoJewel is built around Rhinoceros. When you use RhinoJewel you also have at your disposal all the classic Rhino tools. We recommend that you install the Rhinojewel Interface to find the classic Rhino Tools re-arranged according to how often they are used in jewelry. In addition, the Rhinojewel Interface allows you to access all Subtoolbars without the need for any clicks, making the modeling process faster and even more productive.

Rhinojewel + V-Ray
Jewelry modeled with RhinoJewel 6.0 can be rendered with V-Ray, a rendering plug-in available for Rhino capable of rendering very accurate reflections of metals and refractions of gems.
Rhinojewel + Maxwell Render
Jewelry modeled with RhinoJewel 6.0 can be rendered with Maxwell Render, a rendering plug-in available for Rhino.
Maxwell Render is suitable for intermediate to advanced users who wish to obtain the highest possible rendering quality. Rendering times vary between approximately one and two hours on a Quad-Core computer.
Educational License Features
Features described above are for the commercial version. Here are the limitations for the RhinoJewelEducational Student Version:
Educational version limitations mainly regard the versatility of the options in Prong Setting Eternity Ring builder, Bezel Setting builder and Prong Setting builder. The commercial version offers the option to use 8+ different stone cuts, while the educational version is limited only to round and square cut in bezel tools and one set of "prong number and position" options in Prong Setting Eternity Ring builder.
Another important limitation of the Educational version is the impossibility to use the important "Collision" feature in Insert Pave & Bead tool which precludes the possibility to produce stone paves faster and easier.
