50TH ANNIVERSARY SPOCK VULCAN IDIC PROP REPLICA PIN + COA + GIFT BOX. : MATERIAL: 18K GOLD CIRCLE, RHODIUM PYRAMID. This also comes with an optional gold chain.
This is a MUST for Star Trek fans to celebrate the 50th Anniversary Milestone! The IDIC, conceived of by Gene Roddenberry to represent the precept of. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. Is not just a symbol for the cornerstone of Vulcan philosophy; it also represents the philosophy of Star Trek itself. We are thus proud to commemorate the legacy of Star Trek in its 50th year with this intensely accurate reproduction of the IDIC first worn by Spock in the Original Series episode Is There in Truth No Beauty?
This recreation, painstakingly handmade by a traditional jewelry atelier in New England, is the result of a collaboration between Roddenberry Entertainment and a community of Star Trek prop replica enthusiasts, who worked together to ensure that this is the most faithful replica ever produced. Access to original dress uniform braiding and Bill Theiss insignia patterns was obtained and used in concert with sophisticated digital modeling software to ensure that the sizing and shape contours were a perfect recreation of the original. Evoking Star Trek's simultaneous long history and vision towards the future, futuristic fabrication methods such as high-resolution 3D printing and laser micro-welding were combined with ages-old traditional hand florentine finishing techniques to yield a model with the correct contours and texture. Both parts of the IDIC are first cast in jewelry-grade bronze.
Multiple heavy plating and hand finishing steps are then used to ensure a mirror finish on the circle (in 18k gold) and a rough matte finish on the pyramid (in rhodium, one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals). The resulting textural, shape, and material contrast manifests the core philosophical metaphor of the piece, just as the use of a lab-synthesized gem reflects the scientific orientation both of the Spock character and of Star Trek itself. Both of these details were originally specified by Gene himself in designing the IDIC, as described in. The pin is approximately 2.5 in diameter, and the rear includes both a large pin (for wearing as Spock does in the formal dinner scene) and bails for fastening an optional matching 18k gold-plated chain (for wearing as a necklace as Spock does in the final scene of the episode). The optional chain is adjustable from 26" to 30" in length.It is a sparkling homage to Gene's bright vision of the future. Precious metals and jewelry-grade components. Pin is approximately 2.5 in diameter. (1) Star Trek 50th Anniversary Vulcan IDIC Replica Prop Pin + COA + Pin Box.
