Gems in Motion

If all goes as planned, newly engaged women everywhere will no longer have to awkwardly poise their hands to catch the proper light when showing off their diamond rings.

The Louisiana-based Re’Volve recently launched a jewels-in-motion gemstone-rotating device at the Basel fair and The JCK Show ~ Las Vegas. The technology allows the beauty of a stone to be maximized because its motion allows constant light reflection.

Re’Volve was formed in 1998, bringing together a group representing academics, jewelry manufacturers, business professionals, and engineers. By researching, exploring feasibility, and taking advantage of advances in microtechnology, the company developed a system that subtly rotates a stone within a piece of jewelry.
