When you met your creative partner, was it love at first portfolio glance? Marketing and advertising professionals develop serious bonds over late-night, coffee-fueled brainstorming sessions. If you’ve found the one, you may be looking for a way to make it official. From the creative minds of Michael Kleinman, Declan Byrnes-Enoch and Ed James come 3D printed rings that say, “I promise to always tell you when your idea is awful and high five you when it’s great.”
The Creative Promises Ring line is part of the James H. Goldberg Deskwear Collection and is marketed to art directors, copywriters and other creative duos. The creators of the rings boast them as way to commit to your partner – “but not that kind of partner.”
The clever jewelry is modeled to look like a nail that has been molded into the form of a ring. In an effort to appeal to partners in every phase of their relationship, the rings come in three different colors to represent the appropriate level.
Intern White is suitable for creative folks still in the honeymoon period of their happily-ever-after. Pitch Black is geared toward a duo that has settled in, while Award Gold is for the well-established pair that occasionally bicker. Conveniently sold in pairs, the rings can be purchased at jameshgoldberg.com.
3D printed jewelry has been gaining popularity over the past months with major jewelers producing engagement rings, necklaces, broaches and more. The trend allows clients to design custom jewelry and have it in their hands, or on their fingers, within just a few days. They can choose from a variety of metals, gemstones and designs to create custom pieces worth just a couple hundred or thousands of dollars. Delving into a coordinated technology, jewelers have even used Google Earth to get the exact measurements of famous landmarks and created 3D printed scale models as charms.
Because it eliminates much of the chance for human error, it is more affordable for both the jeweler and the customer. Like in many industries, labor can be much cheaper overseas for the creators of fine jewelry. The 3D printing technology has made production more cost effective and allowed them to bring many of those jobs back here to the United States.
While the Creative Promises rings are not meant as a serious line, they are seriously funny and available for purchase. They are the first venture into 3D printed products for the James H. Goldberg Colllection. Other available items include t-shirts, hats and keychains.
Are you considering giving one of these rings to a coworker? Let’s hear your story, and your feedback on this jewelry in the Creative Promises 3D printed ring forum thread on 3DPB.com.
