The original does sit a bit low and to the left in the circle and that’s how I designed it.
However, you’re right that this particular one is maybe a little lower than that. Unfortunately the different shrinkage rates of the two cast pieces and the riveting system used to fasten the two parts together means we don’t have precision to that level when it comes to this manufacturing process. Still, I’m going to encourage them to move the rivet holes up by about a millimeter on the production run. If you look at this image, for example, there is a bit of a gap between the pyramid and circle. I’d like to eliminate that.
I think that will help nudge the CZ a bit more in the direction of where it’s supposed to be.
Those crystals are cubic zirconia, by the way. We believe the original was fabulite, which is a beautiful gem, but this is in the same family of lab-grown diamonds and is about twenty times less expensive, so we pretty much don’t have a choice but to go with that. I still think it’s in the the same spirit, however. “…a stone particularly appropriate to an actor in a science fiction show, because it is the product of science”
