Starting with a vertex-weighted pointed graph [Formula: see text], we form the free loop algebra [Formula: see text] defined in Hartglass–Penneys’ article on canonical [Formula: see text]-algebras associated to a planar algebra. Under mild conditions, [Formula: see text] is a non-nuclear simple [Formula: see text]-algebra with unique tracial state. There is a canonical polynomial subalgebra [Formula: see text] together with a Dirac number operator [Formula: see text] such that [Formula: see text] is a spectral triple. We prove the Haagerup-type bound of Ozawa–Rieffel to verify [Formula: see text] yields a compact quantum metric space in the sense of Rieffel.

We give a weighted analog of Benjamini–Schramm convergence for vertex-weighted pointed graphs. As our [Formula: see text]-algebras are non-nuclear, we adjust the Lip-norm coming from [Formula: see text] to utilize the finite dimensional filtration of [Formula: see text]. We then prove that convergence of vertex-weighted pointed graphs leads to quantum Gromov–Hausdorff convergence of the associated adjusted compact quantum metric spaces.

As an application, we apply our construction to the Guionnet–Jones–Shyakhtenko (GJS) [Formula: see text]-algebra associated to a planar algebra. We conclude that the compact quantum metric spaces coming from the GJS [Formula: see text]-algebras of many infinite families of planar algebras converge in quantum Gromov–Hausdorff distance.
