At San Diego-Comic Con today, aspiring Titans were given a preview of the power they could wield with the new collaboration Marvel and East Continental Gems. Six actual precious stones are being made available representing each of the Infinity Stones from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With more than 150 carats of drip, the total estimated value of the full set is more than $25 million.
The unprecedented collection was curated by East Continental Gems and was unveiled at the Marvel Booth at San Diego Comic Con earlier today.
The Infinity Collection of Gemstones consists of the Six Infinity Stones from the Marvel Universe. Each of the Infinity Stones are remnants of singularities that predated the Universe. Darren Romanelli aka DRx, a Los Angeles-based creative, served as the collection’s Creative Director.
