Nina&Noah Ring

The secret project that Noah suggested to collaborate on became an exciting adventure into the world of computer modelling, 3d-printing and jewelry making on the crossing of mathematical and organic – quite similar to Nina’s work in tissue engineering. The easy decision on the design direction, based on cardiac muscle tissue, was followed by the process of 3d-modelling in search of the best shapes to securely wrap the 2 carat lab-grown diamond. Wax model was printed and ring was cast in platinum… She said yes.
