41 Fabulous 3D-Printed Accessories

From Alternative Wedding Rings to Customized Earbud Apps

— October 6, 2015 — Unique
3D printing is everywhere, making its way into every realm from medicine to food to alternative wedding jewelry. Its reach is now universal, and it's making every industry more efficient, convenient and creatively liberated.

This series of 3D-printed accessories show how 3D printing has transformed knickknacks into utilitarian devices and opened the door to more innovation in style in the world of jewelry and mobile accessories. For example, Endswell Jewelry used 3D printing to create a line of totally unique alternative wedding bands for couples who want to move away from overly traditional and often ethically questionable diamond rings.

3D printing has produced accessories that store treats or keys, that make music, tell time and are lighter and more intricate than anything produced using traditional jewelry-making techniques.
