Inspired by the duality of both the simplicity and the complexity of mathematical wireframes the Rhombi pendant is a mathematical marvel to the eye. A classic shape reinvented, the pendant embodies timeless elegance and is a refined mix of industrial minimalism and sophisticated feminism. As simple as a shape can be, its wireframe plays tricks on the eye, making it either complex or simple when viewed from different angles. The pendant can be worn on the chest or as a ‘choker’, depending on your mood, style or the event.
The Rhombi pendant is modelled after a Rhombicosidodecahedron, a so-called Archimedean solid. It has 20 regular triangular faces, 30 square faces, 12 pentagonal faces, 60 vertices and 120 edges. In geometry, an Archimedean solid is one of the 13 solids first described by the world-famous scientist Archimedes. Its complicated structure fills 94.33 percent of a sphere.
Each pendant is made through a process where the oldest and newest techniques of gold smithing meet. The pendants are made using the ‘lost wax casting process’. A 3D printed positive model in wax is covered in a ceramic coating, which is then heated to melt the wax, leaving a hollow mould to be filled with a molten metal of your choice. After cooling, the pendants are hand polished, plated with a metal of your choice and hand polished again.
All pendants are available in gold plated, rose gold plated and Sterling silver and come with a numbered certificate of authenticity, guaranteeing the quality and exclusivity of every object. They also come with a wide variety of coloured cords, making it the perfect gift for any occasion.
