18k Hexagonal Ring

Aurum Speak Jewelry


Have you ever wondered why honeycombs are hexagonal? That's because hexagonal structures demand the least amount of material to build the biggest structures. It is light but strong. And it does not end there. You can see it a lot in the natural world. It's there in a snowflake, in a quartz crystal, and surprisingly, bubbles.

Greek mythology narrates that the first man-made mimicry of nature's hexagon is said to have been built by Daedalus, father of Icarus, from gold by lost wax casting more than 3000 years ago. Ever since then, humanity has continuously looked at nature to build the supernatural. We adopted this structure in aerospace, automotive, and nanotechnology. In fact, the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to the scientists who created graphene—also a hexagonal structure.

We celebrate the advancement of humanity because of this shape, and we pay our homage to Daedalus by molding the same shape in the same material he first used. This is Daedalus's ring.
