    I think they're quite beautiful. I love the graphic texture that's mimicked on the gold and then on the interior.

    I can only think of one thing to say.

    Gorgeous!!!

    I also love how close in design the Paralympic Medals are to the Olympic ones. They are stunning.

    Well done Sochi and Russian Organizating Commitees!!

    When I looked on my phone I thought the piece in the middle was an actual piece of fabric. I didn't know what to think of that. Glad to see it is not fabric. They are very nice.

    I was afraid of some tragic design but I love them, and those things are HUGE!

    I don't know why but the jagged edges disturb me.

    I don't like that part of the design either. I do like the detailing - is that engraved? And the Paralympic medals are gorgeous.

    I like the cleaner look of the Paralympic medals better than the Olympic ones but they're both really good, IMO.

    I would like the back to be the front and the front to be the back. :lol: They look huge!

    I like them very much -- distincitive but not wacky.

    My personal favourites are still the Vancouver ones, but I am hugely biased ...

    Wow! Love them! Paralympics ones are better designed.

    Best medals ever! A combination of Snow Queen’s cracked mirror, Damiani Jewlery designs, clockworks in the back of Patek Philippe watch, in a framework of post-modernist architecture (which is mostly used for Olympic Park structures in Sochi anyway).
