Here you can download five 3D models that can be used for making necklace pendants, key rings, earrings and the like.

Actually, there were two good reasons for us to decide to model them a while ago - some internet pictures that we saw showing pendants similar to these here, and the fact that we had a trial version of the T-splines software. We admit, we are no experts in jewelry production, but one thing is certain - from these 3D models, some really cute pendants of (not just) metal can be made! The modeling is very easy, so these five 3D models can serve as inspiration for you to model a pendant of similar shape. You have to customize the 3D model dimensions to your needs, i.e., you need to import the 3D model(s) into some 3D CAD software and scale it/them.

 

3D models of pendants for necklaces
3D model category
3D CAD software used for modeling

Rhino 3D + T-splines (Trial version)

Available NURBS and BREP file formats

.stp (Standardized 3D graphic exchange file format) - Solid 3D model

Available polygonal mesh file formats

.obj

Geometry: Mesh - Quads only (Low poly 3D models without texture and materials); Mesh topology supports multiple subdivisions

 

All of them have been created in Rhinoceros 3D CAD software and its T-Splines Plug-in. Mastering the T-Splines Plug-in is very useful when it comes to transformation of polygonal mesh 3D models into NURBS 3D models. The pendants look very interesting, for sure. If you create one or more pieces yourself, we will be very pleased to receive some pics from you to see how they look in reality.
