Valentine's Day is a perfect opportunity to woo a loved one with customized, 3D printed jewelry. A new platform called Dyo – short for "design your own" – makes this easy. The service is offered by Matter.io, a startup in Cambridge, Massachusetts founded by a team of engineers from Cornell and MIT. Dyo allows you to design your own 3D jewelry in your browser, like these personalized jewelry below.

With dyo, products are designed by and for you; they are 3D printed by Shapeways and delivered to your door. The service is a good example of how the popularity of 3D printing is leading to expanded applications and services for consumers. Although 3D printing services like Shapeways make it easy to get 3D-printed items made from digital designs, creating such unique designs in the first place remains difficult for many people. Dyo.co wants consumers become the creators. The consumer-oriented platform of dyo makes it easier for anyone with an internet connection to create their own 3D-printed objects using accessible design tools.

Dyo is starting with jewelry for Valentine's Day. "Skip the waxy chocolates and generic gifts and give something different this Valentine's Day - designed by you and made just for them." says Dyo. Every product on Dyo is customizable and made to order. Customers are able to add unique messages on jewelry and they can also see realistic previews of their design. Each piece uses personal data to create one of a kind jewelry you can order in plastic, metal or sterling silver, and prices range from $30 to $140.

Dylan Reid, chief executive of Matter.io, says, "At Matter.io, we're passionate about enabling people to make things. We want to bring design to EVERYONE with an Internet connection, not only those looking for an easy, modular way of making 3D models."
