Big Hero 6 Inspired Jewelry Part 1
Posted on March 24 2015
When navigating a jewelry site and a wide selection like we have, one great way to help you decide what to get when you’re shopping is to pick something that is meaningful to you. It can represent virtually anything, but today we’re going to talk about picking jewelry that reminds you of a favorite film or fandom and to that end, we’ll be talking about Disney’s Big Hero 6.
The film, personally speaking, was one of my favorite films of 2014 and was relatively well balanced. My family enjoyed it as well and we stood in line at Disneyland toward the beginning of the year to even meet Baymax — especially my grandma. (We found out later she thinks Baymax is the Happy Buddha. It’s kind of hilarious.)
So yeah, when fandom makes such a big impact on your life, it can be particularly meaningful to you and provide extra significance to the jewelry you select to be part of your collection or represent you, a loved one, or a favorite character. So without further ado, here’s part 1 of a list of jewelry we carry that remind me of some of the characters of Big Hero 6.
Baymax – BMLA-2242
This men’s ring I think for obvious reasons reminds me of Baymax. It’s a design we’ve carried for awhile, but people have been finding that iconic Baymax face in all kinds of things online, so seeing it in a ring isn’t a huge stretch. I would probably look into getting black diamonds and a carbon fiber inlay into it as well, but if the big fluffy mascot of Big Hero 6 is your jam, then this is a ring that speaks to you.
Hiro – Garnet/Rhodolite Garnet
For Hiro and the rest of the human cast, I chose things based on gemstones since a lot of the elements of the Big Hero 6 team revolves around color coding that is not unlike the colored team uniforms of Power Rangers or Super Sentai. Hiro’s gemstone though, I decided should be garnet because we carry two varieties — garnet and rhodolite garnet. Being one of the main characters of the story, one of the colors predominantly associated with Hiro is red making garnet a lovely choice for its deep red color. However, his suit and the matching suit he creates for Baymax also incorporates purplilsh hues, which is why I was thinking rhodolite garnet was also plausible and that the garnet stone in general best works for Hiro since his outfits are a play on those colors. The garnet’s deep color also makes it a stone of hope in dark times because a bright red glow appears to emanate from deep within. Given the tragedy that Hiro experiences and his eventual ability to pull through, I felt like that story element was reflected through the garnet gemstone.
Tadashi – Ruby
As Hiro’s brother, I really felt it was appropriate for Tadashi to also have a red stone. Rubies are also closely associated with fire and passion, and for the passionate part, Tadashi was a lot more initially open to being productive with his talents in comparison to Hiro who didn’t initially imagine applying himself to academics. In that sense, the more visible red of a ruby seems like a logical choice. Then, there’s also the fire….WATCH THE MOVIE. Also, rumors abound about him becoming Sunfire.
Wasabi – Blue Topaz
Wasabi’s trademark invention was his laser induced plasma which he employs as electric blue blades with cutting accuracy. As such the blue lightning sort of color of blue topaz seemed like an appropriate match. Wasabi, in comparison, to the other characters on the team is also pretty calm and chill in that he’s more level-headed and grounded in common sense than the rest despite the deadly fierceness of his weapons. Blue topaz is also a stone that is said to dispel cowardice, which is a trait that Wasabi does need help with as well.
These are just the first four of our jewelry/gemstone picks for the characters of this film. Next time for Part 2, I’ll talk about the gemstone picks I’ve made for Honey Lemon, Go Go, Fred, and even Yokai. We hope that looking through lists like this help to inspire you in different ways to make your jewelry special and meaningful.
