    Hello there. I have a friend who works at a jewelry store, and I have an idea for a pendant or necklace.
    Would any of you, your GF's, wives, wear a necklace featuring the Matrix of Leadership?
    It would be about 30mm in length, platinum, gold, and blue sapphire. What do you think? What would it be worth and will it sell?

    I remember seeing a picture of Galvatron wearing a cheap toy necklace of the Matrix of Leadership, but have not seen a real piece of jewelry made of one.

    Would it be a collectors item?

    If it was actual jewellery, probably not, as it would be beyond the means of most fans and probably cant be made in significant enough numbers by a single jeweler to count as more than a custom object.

    There's already a... diecast I think matrix of leadership pendant that looks like the one in the 86 movie available, though its been more than a few years since it came out.

    I will say I know of someone whose wife is currently wearing a matrix-styled ring, however.

    My girlfriend would kill me if I bought her that.

    I wouldn't mind one styled for men though.

    It's just an idea I had and was wondering if it was worth venturing into.
    My thought was it would be for either women or men and most likely men would wear it because of what it is.
    Question is, how would you stylize it to be for men as apposed for women?

    In general, Id say you could make it out of steel or pewtered silver rather than a really shiny sterling or gold, maybe use a smaller or less brilliantly cut gem, possibly a zirconia or even glass instead of diamond, etc. Basically to make it for "men" as opposed to "women", youd make it more subtle, and use a larger chain, I would think. Personal tastes vary widely though.

    given the materials you listed it would be rather expensive, but if made from cheaper materials and styled for guys or either or it would sell better

    As a girl I would say it would depend on the size of the charm and the cost of course but this is me saying this

    I'd wear it. If the gold and jewels were real. Fake gold and diamonds are so tacky.

    True story, my ex bought me a heart pendant that was fake, I don't care how much it cost him I threw that piece of junk out. So if you expect girls to wear it, make it real.

    I don't like fake jewelry either no matter how much more affordable it is.
    I've e-mailed my friend "jewelry maker" about it and see what he thinks.
    For guy's, maybe sterling silver for the handles, gold for the center, and so on.
    Ladies, maybe white gold for the handles? Yellow gold for center, and so on? I wonder how white gold compares to platinum in terms of finish, and cost.

    Platinum is more expensive than gold or was before Gold prices went sky high I have no clue on the current prices of precious metals.

    Larger/thicker chain.

    Even just as an idea though, I'd say drop the Platinum. Shit's expensive. Go with Silver or even White Gold.



    Edit: Asked my girlfriend for the hell of it, she goes "maybe if it was a belt buckle." And I agree with her awesomeness.

    I'd actually love a pendant for a guy's chain necklace. Something like onyx in the middle would be pretty cool, or some dark blue gem in the middle. I'd wear it for sure, and it'd replace my saxophone pendant.

    This was custom made for me by my friends at Good Wood NYC. It was a gift but apparently would cost about $350. It's hand painted one of a kind
