Need some help....turnover chain.

Alright fellas.  I need someone to point me in the right direction because I have no idea where to start on this one.  Anniversary with my wife is coming up on Nov 23rd, celebrating on the 25th. 

So I'm gonna get my wife some jewelry! 

But I don't have a "normal" wife so that dainty diamond bracelet just won't do.  I gave her one last year and I don't think she's ever worn it. 

Her world completely revolves around football!!!
And her team is the Miami Hurricanes.  This woman has been a faithful fan through all the bad times and now that they're winning she deserves something special.  

That's why I'm building her a Turnover Chain! 

I can find the Cuban Link Chain. No problem.  But I've been searching the internet for a big Miami medallion and can't find anything!  

Anyone know where I can find something like this?

    That's the first place I looked.  Everything on there is either plastic, foam, or very crappy.  I'm looking to replicate this thing as close as possible.   Without breaking the bank of course.  I don't need real gems and I'm gonna do a gold plated chain,  but I want it to be sturdy.

    best I could find was a reference to http://www.allcanes.com/ sporting goods store in this article: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/article183766376.html but searching the site couldn't find what they were talking about, maybe a call to them....
    Maybe cut one out of heavy aluminum and paint it?

    You know.... that's something I have access to.  That's not a bad idea!

    @silvermouse. In progress. 

    Having one of the structural mechanics here at my hangar make it out of some thick aluminum. 

    Bought 24k paint for it last night but thinking of having it gold plated.
