Jewelers Make their Own Infinity Gauntlets and the Mad Titan Thanos Visits Gemcamp.




With the much awaited Avengers: Infinity War being released in Philippine theatres today, we thought it might be a fun, light-hearted post to show you what jewelry fans around the world were creating in support of their favorite cosmic gemstones.

It would be an interesting scenario if Thanos brought the infinity gems to our gemologists here at Gemcamp Laboratories. Our director would probably take a good long look at the gauntlet and say something like.. "Okay, the red one's flame fusion ruby, the purple one's hydrothermal amethyst, the green one's quench crackled quartz, and the blue one... that one's just cobalt glass."

Thanos: "These are the most powerful gems in the universe."
Our gemologist: "You were swindled. Sorry."

Then maybe he gets vaporized by the power stone or something, but at least there was honor in the effort.



Mind you, we are kidding. -and most definitely, this is the farthest thing from gemology, but every now and then, it's nice to find yourself immersed in the world of fantasy, heroes and epic stories.

In the movies leading up to Infinity War, the avengers, played by Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner on screen, have been involved with plots to take over the earth, time and time again. Each film circling around an individual infinity stone, with a specific theme and power. The time stone for example, is a green gem called the "Eye of Agamoto" that allows the user to manipulate the fabric of time itself, was last seen around the neck of Dr. Steven Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch who will be joining the Avengers along with Tom Holland as Spiderman and the Guardians of the Galaxy.



In light of the fans' clamoring for more marvel-inspired trinkets, jewelry craftsmen from different parts of the world are gathering up their creative juices to manifest ideas that reflect on the diversity and significance of the movie, especially in superhero culture.

The Bee Hive, a craft store from America, created a custom chain-based infinity gauntlet, woven with multicolored fashion-gems that each symbolize the different infinity stones wielded by Thanos in his universal conquest.



Other interpretations show different rings, portraying each stone in cabochon form, after they undergo transmittance into the gauntlet. Some jewelry pieces, like this Tesseract pendant, directly takes after designs from the movie, tailoring its appeal to the fandom of superhero culture.



A custom chain-mail gauntlet created by The Firefly Path, shows a more feminine, yet mythically eerie take on Thanos' gauntlet, providing us with yet another creative interpretation of the artifact.



Avengers Infinity War hits theatres this Wednesday, and a lot of the staff here at Gemcamp will be watching some of the late night showings.
