The designer has found a unique way to ensure her customers get what they what, especially when it comes to finding the right size.

As per a news report, the jeweler 3D prints designs using Selective Laser Printing (SLS) — a process where she melts the powder into shape with lasers, printing them in a wax that can be cast from silver.

The process, notes the report, gives unique textures to the final product, enhancing its look.

Lace has been using 3D printing to create nylon versions of popular jewelry designs that are available for as less as $3.

The samples can be ordered in any size, and customers can keep them whether they purchase the original item or not. This gives potential buyers a chance to try out the pieces before committing — helpful as the store notes in the report that some of the most returned items are rings.

The samples, per the report, are made using the Fuse 1 SLS 3D printed manufactured by Formlabs.
