This Ring Is Knotty
Knots have many meanings in different cultures. Celtic knots can remind people of the timelessness, with its indiscernible beginning and end. In Chinese, the word for rope (“sheng”) is a homonym for spirit. The word for knot (“jie”) is a homonym for celebration or unity. Knots can also signify longevity in life or marriage. In other cultures, knots are used to measure distance or time.

Why 3D Printing?
3D printing changes the traditional manufacturing paradigm by making it possible to make products catering to every individual’s unique preferences. Each item is solidified from powder layer by layer, thus eliminating the need for molds.
With 3D printing, we can cut down on product waste, offer more designs, and enable you to personalize products reflecting your imagination and need. And best of all, we will never run out of your size!
The 3D Printing Process
Your personalized Knotty Ring is made just for you with metal 3D printing technology.
A print head filled with binder solidifies the stainless steel powder in a tray layer by layer. Next, the product is carefully removed from its powder bed. Excess powder is recycled in the next print run.
Your product is then infused with bronze in a furnace. This hardens your product and gives it strength. Finally, it’s polished to smooth out the rough edges.
Some products may go through a gold or bronze plating process depending on your personalization choices. If you prefer a stainless steel finish, your product is left un-plated for a silvery steel finish. Every item is made on demand, which is why your item takes a little while to produce.
