3D-printed products is gaining traction in the fashion industry. Jewelry designers all over the world seem to be benefiting the most from 3D printing's rapid prototyping as a powerful yet accessible alternative to other forms of manufacturing in the creative industry.

Designer Ross Lovegrove has recently designed a collection of 3D Printed rings called Foliates. The series has six rings made out of 18 carat gold, each of which will be produced in an edition of ten.

"These rings and this collection appear is as if the very last virgin leaves of a tree or plant have unfurled from one's hand so that there is a relationship between the finger and the leaf, the gold appearing from the delicate void that I find so feminine and sensual and unattended," said Lovegrove.

To create these intricate surface details Lovegrove uses direct metal laser sintering as well as combining 3D-printing with lost-wax casting for wax-like" patterns.

Foliates 3d Printed rings will be officially launched by Louisa Guinness in Art Basel Miami next week.
