Sentinel Incept is ARQ's first ever design. It is non-AI, created and modeled by our (somewhat) human founder Ivan Sun. And thus a it has a very special place in the ARQ pantheon. It was the harbinger for all designs that came after. It is a relic dug up on a distant dead planet - that can connect us to a higher race of beings: the ARQ Sentinels. Channeling their ancient technology, our human hosts have opened a gateway - and can now tap into the limitless power of the void, to create new pieces and evolve jewelry forever.
Dimensions: ~22mm Diameter
ARQ is revolutionizing the jewelry industry by combining cutting-edge technology with ancient human creativity. With embedded NFC chips and high-tech machine learning design techniques, ARQ’s Core collection transforms jewelry into interactive wearable assets.
While technology has altered every aspect of our culture, for thousands of years, jewelry has remained stagnant - until now. ARQ’s Core collection represents the perfect fusion of ancient human arts and a new digital intelligence.
Instead of buying the same regurgitated styles dictated by large luxury corporations, ARQ is returning the agency of aesthetics and design to the hands of the people. ARQ’s Core collection promises to blow minds and change the jewelry industry forever.
We envision a world where jewelry is not just a decorative item, but a useful tool. In fact, many of the earliest forms of jewelry were also tools that played a critical role in early humans’ survival. ARQ is bringing back that utility, enabling Core collection owners to access exclusive perks, rewards, giveaways, and competitions.
Owning an ARQ Core piece means being whitelisted for truly awesome things, like winning the rights to add your own AI designs to the marketplace, including the genesis of that design. Join ARQ in breaking the mold as we usher in a new era of jewelry that is both uniquely beautiful and functional.
When translating 2D AI-generated image concepts into 3D physical jewelry, there is always an amount of artistic interpretation needed. The end result, regardless of how skilled the artisans are, is never an exact replica of the original concept. While the AI art concepts are beautiful, they serve more as an inspired guide than a blueprint, especially when creating jewelry on such a small scale. By purchasing any ARQ jewelry, you are acknowledging this.
