3D-printed rings prove that technology has enabled us to be our own designers; with the help of 3D-printing studio Shapeways, you will now be able to customize your own ring online and have it made and delivered to your house.

Safeways’s sophisticated and easy-to-use 3D-modeling platform brings your imagination to life. Anything you picture in your head can be made via computer and the process is simple. Choose or upload your own black-and-white image file of a 3D ring. Indicate your ring size and the material you’d like the ring to be made from. Shapeways then takes this information to manufacture your ring—and ship it to your doorstep.

Safeways’s products can be customized online, starting at a price as low as $2.30. Depending on the material chosen, the rings go up in cost to $130. With development of 3D-printing technology, there’s no need to visit the pawnshop.
