THEFUTUREOFJEWELRY is powered by its easy-to-use jewelry customization platform-- the ultra-fast, interactive 3D ring design web app combines a user-intuitive interface with a powerful backend customization engine. It works equally well on a phone, tablet, or laptop. No downloads required.

Easily add text in several fonts, upload a logo or custom design, import a 3D file (STL, OBJ, GLTF), sign your name or draw free-hand, select from our library of icons to add to the face or sides of the ring and immediately refashion with different materials/metals and interact with the ring in 3D. Upon checkout, the platform generates a 3D file. Using advanced 3D printers and casting equipment, that 3D file is used to create top quality, ready-to-finish precious metal jewelry pieces from computer-based designs.

THEFUTUREOFJEWELRY Customization Platform empowers anyone to customize signet rings, pendants, and wedding bands in a wide variety of materials 155 different sizes. The mission is to make the process of creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry easier, more affordable, and accessible for all. 

Sisters Casey and Janine Melvin pivoted from law students to startup founders in February 2017 after failing to find affordable, matching signet rings in their respective finger sizes. They were shocked at the lack of options for customizable pieces available for sale online in an affordable price range.
