Glimpse the fourth dimension with these hyperoctahedron earrings from our 4D Collection. Just as the octahedron is created by placing a pair of points above and below a square and connecting them to all the square’s corners, the hyperoctahedron is created by placing a pair of points “above” and “below” the octahedron in the fourth dimension and connecting them to all the octahedron’s corners.
In these three-dimensional earrings, those two points appear inside the octahedron. These earrings were designed in a computer using mathematical software and then brought to life using 3D printing technology.
Pairs well with a hypersimplex or hypercube necklace.
Our Metal jewelry is created through a lost-wax casting process. A mold of the object is 3D printed in high-resolution wax, a plaster mold is created around the wax, and the wax is replaced by molten metal. Brass and Bronze jewelry will patina over time.
Silver and Rhodium Plated Earrings feature stirling silver earwire. Brass and Gold Plated Earrings feature gold-filled earwire. Rose Gold Plated Earrings feature rose gold-filled earwire.
