Talsam is style and substance: luxury jewelry with hidden wearable technology.
Our New York based design team spent months exploring different form factors, materials, and styles for the charm. We left no stone unturned in our quest to design something truly stunning, jewelry that looks as special as it feels.
We incorporated a few practical features into the charm's design that add function to its sleek form, including a button, a loop and pin mechanism to keep its USB-C™ connector hidden, and attachment rings at either end that latch onto a range of compatible accessories.
There's no such thing as one-style-fits-all in fashion, so we designed the charm to be worn as a necklace or bracelet. We also produced a variety of compatible accessories to enable you to personalize your charm to suit different styles, outfits, and occasions.
Our inaugural line is highlighted by six semi-precious stones, each boasting unique properties. Every stone is precision cut to fit perfectly in the charm, with six expertly drilled holes in the pattern of the Lyra Constellation.
In Ancient Greek mythology, this constellation represents the lyre of Orpheus, who was considered to be the greatest musician of his time. In Chinese and Japanese mythology, Lyra is associated with a love story between a humble farm boy and a goddess.
We sourced Swarovski® crystals with the exact dimensions to fit in the holes drilled on the stone face of the charm. Each crystal is deftly placed in a hole and secured in place using clear resin to ensure a perfect fit and translucence.
We chose stainless steel for the charm body for its durability and hypoallergenic qualities. Every charm is plated using gold or silver and is then immersed in a PVD coating, which protects the plating and extends its lifespan.
We refined the mechanical design of the charm to offer reasonable resistance to day-to-day exposure from water, with an initial rating of IPX-4. This means it will survive accidental spills and splashes, but we don't suggest you swim or shower with it on.
We employed a rigorous approach to producing the charm, testing and refining each part to ensure optimal fit. Every component is designed down to the millimeter and every accessory is purpose built to carry the charm.
