Galatea NFC-Powered Jewelry Now Compatible With Apple Smartphones
Galatea Jewelry by Artist has announced that its patented Near Field Communication (NFC)-empowered Momento Pearl, Gem and Diamond jewelry now works with Apple's iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X smartphones. Momento jewelry had previously been compatible only with Android-based phones and tablets. The Momento NFC app is now available for download at Apple's App Store.
Momento #NFC jewelry, first introduced by Galatea in 2014, contains an NFC chip that allows a user to play messages, or to view texts or images when a piece of pearl, gemstone or diamond jewelry is tapped against a compatible mobile device. Galatea has applied for seven patents for Momento, four of which have been granted. The Momento Collections currently include more than 75 unique jewelry styles. Apple unlocked the NFC portion of its operating system for app developers in September 2017, at the same time that it introduced its new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X phone models.
In 2005, the company introduced the Galatea Pearl, which is cultured using a colored stone bead. After the pearl's nacre is carved away, the color can be seen below its surface. The company's DavinChi Cut Collection, awarded an International Patent in 2012, introduced a new way of setting a gemstone in jewelry so it could absorb the colors of its surroundings. Galatea's newest Galaxia Collection features a patent-pending bonding process that adheres miniscule lab-grown diamond druzy to precious metals or pearls without a noticeable setting.
