News From The Future: Location Based Jewelry

Just enter the name of your desired location and select the exact section. Within the blink of an eye the place’s distinctive landscape turns into a 3d-preview of the precious custom silver pendant. We cast the personalized jewelry with fascinating detail in 925 silver for you. You can compare the finished silver pendant with the real landscape we send you as a printed satellite image of the selected location.

    @facebook-562449691:disqus we have a comment policy where we try to set a positive tone, the idea of 3d printing and/or using data to create-one-of a kind jewelry is innovative and interesting. i didn’t claim it was related to the singularity :)

    Thanks for the post Phillip! Whilst most users of 3D-Printers want to have layers as thin as possible, we print the jewelry with layers as thick as the wax printer allows. This takes the cost down to a feasible level and increases the effect that resembles elevation lines on a map.
