3d-printed wedding ring for FOC Talents assignment
I wanted to create a ring which is international and fits to many cultures. That's why I wanted to keep some traditions in it. Like the wedding ring is a world wide symbol of love, so is red color. Wedding ring have been traditionally never-ending circle where's no beginnings and endings. I didn't want to brake this ideology, but just made it more complex. In materials gold and diamonds have been lately the most used. I wanted to keep diamond from these two, representing also as forever lasting material. In other words, 3Diamonds is a symbol of love, endless and forever.
