Three years ago with a help of Kickstarter we brought our carbon fiber rings to life, it was really great beginning for us. Since then many people who tried them have realized that carbon fiber can be a great alternative to the rings made from ordinary materials like silver or gold which are so unsurprising nowadays and often too pricey.
The growing interest in this type of jewelry and our own belief in greatness and beauty of carbon fiber kept us busy these past few years: we were searching for new shapes, patterns and combinations. With a lot of thorough work, patience and eagerness we finally came out with a new rings collection, but to make it available for all of you, we need your support. Our main goal of this campaign is to purchase/ improve all the tooling we need to work with Titanium and Carbon fiber. In this way we will be able to reduce manufacturing cost and make those rings available in the market.
We are happy to introduce and invite you to explore our new Royalty Rings collection.
This collection represents the best of our discoveries so far. It’s a combination of elegance and strength, roughness and tenderness, all put together and seasoned with a pinch of mystery.
Most popular jewelry manufacturers are spending more money on branding and advertising than on a product itself and a customers end up paying for this.
We offer you another kind of luxury: our full attention to you and your needs. You not only get a ring for the best price but also a direct connection with a manufacturing process and a craftsman himself. Not to mention, every ring is handmade and unique – you will never find the same ring no matter how hard you try.
Royalty rings are designed with impeccable taste, high quality and precision. They look handsome, rugged and always refined making them a perfect choice for anyone regardless who you are: a lawyer, an engineer or anyone in between. You deserve it! Choose a style that fits you best and get your Royalty Ring in any shape, color and size you want.
Over past five years we have tried most of materials and alloys out there just to find out that some of them are too soft, other cause various allergies ant the rest are just simply too expensive. All these experiments finally led us to a conclusion that titanium is our metal of choice! It meets all the criteria we set: it’s incredibly light, strong, hypoallergenic and can be color plated in a unique way using oxide layer.
Other big player here is carbon fiber. We like to use it everywhere, so we can safely say that it became like a trademark for us. We love carbon fiber for its look and its physical properties. It won’t take long to fall in love with its marbled or waved pattern that catches light and reveals its deep, various look.
We combined these two materials into two designs: Crystal and Minimalist.
Crystal design is a real trend setter. It is shaped like a natural crystal to create an eye catching edgy surface. Linear carbon fiber that is used here has an interesting visual properties, that makes its pattern sparkle under the different lighting and a crystal shaping makes it look like a gemstone. Crystal Royalty ring is like a four dimensional piece of art!
Minimalist design is made for those of you, who like to keep it simple in shape, but special within. Rings surface is covered in random carbon fiber weave, beautiful marbled pattern that catches light and reveals its deep, various look.
In both designs, we can oxidize titanium in color you want! More about it below.
The color that you see on our titanium rings is not a regular paint, plate or pigment, it is an oxide layer. The oxidation is achieved by an electrochemical process that causes titanium to grow a thin layer of oxide.
The titanium oxidation process is not coloring titanium through the entire depth of the metal, it's just a very thin titanium oxide layer that tend to fade out over time after active usage. Colored titanium rings are meant to be worn every day and will develop an antique finish, tarnish or fade over time. Titanium can be recolored unlimited times and we will offer this service after campaign is over for a fraction of price (mainly just to cover handling fees).
Titanium provides several unique qualities that make it an ideal metal for jewelry rings. It is very strong, more dent, bend and scratch resistant than gold, silver or platinum. It is lightweight and as importantly offers an exotic array of colors that no other material can do.
Most other metal rings including silver and gold are heavy and will fade very soon making the ring look dull. Titanium (uncolored) rings can last years, keeping their fresh polished look.
Titanium has another very important feature – it is 100% hypoallergenic. It is safe to wear for anyone as it will not react to your skin and will not dye it as brass, sterling silver or white gold will. That’s the reason why we use commercially pure titanium.
And finally – carbon fiber! A beautiful material that can offer several fine patterns depending on technology used to make it. It’s like a gemstone that reveals various reflections in different angles of view. No wonder carbon fiber can be found in many luxurious gadgets and accesories these days.
Carbon fiber is characterized by its weight and strength ratio. It is extremely strong and light, even lighter than titanium, heat and corrosion resistant and has a multi layered construction creating its unique look.
In this ring collection we offer two different carbon fiber patterns depending on rings design: Milkyway in Crystal design and Stardust in Minimalist.
It is complicated to work with titanium and carbon fiber separately and even more when combining them together. It took us many years of practice and learning to achieve this. But now we feel confident to use them in jewelry where every detail matters.
Variety of available sizes guarantee that ring will fit perfectly on your finger like it already was there forever.
Risks and challenges
Every campaign may face various problems, delays, and learning curves. As with most projects like this, the main challenge is managing fulfillment, because each ring is made and finished by hand, a significant amount of time and care is put into every one, which could take longer than our estimated timeframe for a large quantity of rings.
We believe that our previous experience will help us to fullfill and complete this campagn at highest level.
We promise to keep our customers and backers updated if we run into any production delays, and any other difficulties along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
