    Hi, last year I made a ring for myself in a jewelry class that I love and wear everyday. However, the intro class only gave students access to certain metals, so my ring is made of nickel. I would like to remake it with a different metal. Is it possible to scan and copy the ring exactly? Sorry if this is a stupid/obvious question.

    Hello, yes there are scanning processes that allow you to copy objects. There is a company here in portland that I know who's doing this. He scans down to 50 microns or less I think. I can put you in touch with him if you like.

    Post a few pictures of the ring in different angles, if the scanning is expensive, maybe some of us can model it from the pictures, dimensions and ring size.

    Yes of course we could also do a reconstruction on your ring to match. You can contact us directly at our website.
