Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – or so the saying goes. However, this may not be the case for much longer. A new idea in the making could truly broaden the horizons of those who are choosing the perfect something sparkly to coordinate with their attire. Neclumi, an art collective based in Warsaw, is designing something new: light-generated jewelry.
The name might make one think that it is jewelry that becomes brighter and more vibrant when exposed to light. However, this is not the case at all. Light-generated jewelry means exactly that. This jewelry is not made of silver, bronze or gold. It is made of nothing but light.
Like many of the latest creations in technology, it all starts as an app on a smartphone. With the help of a tiny projector that clips to the collar of the wearer, the app creates a variety of different moving patterns on the skin. This gives the wearer the appearance of having a brightly lit, constantly moving, uniquely-designed necklace.
There is no denying this is a very modern look that many will enjoy wearing. The creator of this artistic form of jewelry still has a few kinks to work out before it can be released on the market, but, chances are good that it will be quite popular when released. Some may even prefer to “wear” this jewelry in combination with their actual jewelry.
Time will tell if this new technology earns the success that is predicted. While it is unlikely a light-generated engagement ring will ever take the place of traditional gold and diamonds, this may turn out to be a great way for people to add some pizzazz to their look.
