Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jony Ive and the industrial designer Marc Newson has designed the construction of a ring made entirely from a diamond.
It will then eventually be sold to an auction with an auction base between $ 150,000 and $ 250,000.
the total revenue will be allocated to Resedarch to combat AIDS.
The ring will be created by the American society, diamond foundry for the non-profit brand (PRODUCT)RED™
that help the research agents the Aids, tuberculosis and malaria through the allocation of money derived from various opacifications to the goblase fund against these diseases.
Creation and characteristics
To create this ring, were used vanguard technologies were used, with various tasks and teams for specific parts of the project.
The ring will be faceted with thousands of facets with some as small as several hundred micrometers.
Moreover, through a micrometric water jet the inner ring will be cylindrical, for desired beauty.
Where and when?
The auction will be held in Miami on December 5, 2018 by Sotheby’s one of the worldwide auction houses, based in the UK.
Maybe this is the future of the digital jewels, the digital rings. Infact, Cupertino has filed the Apple Ring patent in 2015.
The future “Ring” will be (maybe) control by voice and it will have display, microphone, camera, motion sensors and there will the possibility of connect it via Bluetooth or wireless.
The Apple Ring is nothing official or certified but only leaks.
