Adorn yourself with 3D printed jewellery inspired by pure mathematics. The Quark Pendant is based on the structure of subatomic particles.

Perhaps it’s stating the obvious, but the jewellery you wear is a reflection of your personality. Diamond and gold jewellery are typically associated with status and wealth, for example. Skulls and crosses are your typical fare at a heavy metal concert, for another. But if you fancy something altogether more unique, take a gander at this Quark Pendant designed by Virtox.
