Based in the United Kingdom, The Precious Project makes custom 3D-printed jewelry. With support from innovation agency Innovate UK, the company has a goal of "increasing the competitiveness of UK jewelry manufacturing by offering a viable alternative to suppliers at the middle/high end of the bespoke and personalized jewelry market."
The collaborative effort brings together five different partners including British designers, suppliers of precious metals and software developers. The Precious Project's experimental approach to digital manufacturing results in affordable custom 3D-printed jewelry made out of 18 karat gold. This also demonstrates how jewelry designers outside of the UK can experiment with precious metal additive manufacturing at any part of the process, from design to retail.
