HOW DOES TANAOR™'S NANOTECHNOLOGY WORK?
At TANAOR we bring the latest advancements in technology to our jewelry, enabling us to incorporate the entire KJV Bible into each piece in our collections.
By utilizing nanotechnology, we are able to engrave the entire Bible (over 3.1 million characters) into a tiny 1x1 inch silicone slate we call "a Nanochip" onto which we etch the Bible.
The Nanochip is smaller than the tip of a finger, and looks very similar to a gemstone, thanks to it's reflective nature and the special coating we use.
Nanotechnology refers to the use of matter on a molecular scale, and is a technology widely in use today for innovations across a variety of industries, including medicine, electronics, manufacturing, and now - jewelry.
Working with the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Tel Aviv University, we developed and refined the technique for etching the Bible onto a small silicone chip to meet our design standards.
Each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the University. The chips are created in our designated labs, where engineers use advanced tools and technology to engrave the Bible through e-beam lithography onto the silicone Nanochips, allowing us to write the letters on a microscopic scale.
Below you can see TANAOR's Nano Bible Chip inspected using a confocal microscope.
The creation of the chips requires seven distinct steps, including ultraviolet exposure and metallization. The end result is a chip that contains all 1189 chapters of the KJV Bible with more than 3 million letters.
The text can be seen through a powerful confocal microscope with 1000x-10,000x magnification. Such equipment is typically found in universities and research laboratories.
Once the chips leave the lab, they’re incorporated into our beautiful designs crafted by world-class jewelry makers.
We are so incredibly proud and excited to be able to offer this unique blend of innovative technology and stunning design that elegantly fuses meaning into jewelry, so people all over the world can enjoy the timeless wisdom of the Bible with classic style, and carry it with them always.
Fun fact: A Single Nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. That's like comparing the size of an olive to the size of the Earth!
