Nerbon-Forged Carbon Fiber Glow rings

CONCEPT 

Nerbon is a composite focused jewelry brand. My goal and passion is offering high technological composite materials into our everyday life in the form of elegant unique jewelry. The main material used is Forged carbon fiber.

WHAT IS FORGED COMPOSITE? 

Forged Carbon fiber is not a specific material, but a technology developed first by Lamborghini for the creation of specific carbon fiber parts for luxury sport cars. The process allows the creation of 3D shaped objects through a molding and curing process. By applying both heat and pressure the carbon fiber is sandwiched between layers of resin. It’s this combination of pressure and heat that gives it the name “forged.” Stronger than steel with the look of polished marble. Forged Carbon fiber allows us to make high-performance rings that offer a sleek and unique modern look.

WHAT MAKES OUR RINGS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CARBON FIBER RINGS  

You need two main components to successfully form carbon fiber: carbon fiber cloth and resin. Only when both are combined and mixed at the proper ratio you are able to form it. We are chemically involved in the process and know exactly what kind of carbon fiber and resin was used and how the chemical process of bonding the materials went. The rings are extremely sensitive to light. Always revealing new marble patterns, even reflecting the surrounding area.

OUR DEVELOPMENT: 

With the knowledge of how to work with carbon fiber and long months that were put into research and testing, we successfully developed our own method of forging carbon fiber under extreme heat and pressure, thus developing a unique marble design that closely resembles sea waves and snake skin, along with keeping the strength, durability and lightness. When catching the light marble patterns reveal deep, beautiful layers. Each ring has its own unique marble look and none will ever look the same.

PROS:  

Carbon fiber offers a beautiful black noticeable look and different unique designs, all depending on how you work with it. But since it is very expensive, hard to work with and time consuming, it is normally not used much as a beauty accessory even though it has astonishing beauty and even more; outstanding mechanical properties.

✔ Unique hand polished marble look ✔ Ultra-light weight ✔ Superior comfort ✔ Incredibly strong and durable ✔ In case of accident does not bend and cut off circulation to your finger ✔ Hypoallergenic material ✔ Unique slim glowing interior ✔ Luminescent line 

Carbon fiber is characterized by its weight and strength ratio. It is extremely strong and light, heat and corrosion resistant and does not cause metal allergies. Used in aerospace, ultra-light bikes, luxury sport cars, boat parts and much more where lightness needs to match strength and durability.

HANDMADE: 

The thing that makes our rings special is the attention to detail, like in comfortability and safety. Many rings bend when under pressure, thus damaging your finger, instead carbon fiber shatters and keeps your finger intact. Since rings are worn a lot they need to be comfortable. Our rings are designed to be exactly that. The outside and inside of the ring has a slim curve which prevents the ring from ever getting stuck on the finger and is also extremely comfortable when in contact with skin. Each ring is handmade and polished for the best comfort and to be pleasant to the touch, just like silk.

To add something unique and different we are combining forged carbon fiber with epoxy based resin mixed with non-toxic strontium based glow powder. The glow leaks out on each side, but it also causes the outer edges of the band to radiate, bringing out the marble patterns even in the darkest of settings.

HOW LONG DO THE RINGS GLOW AND HOW TO CHARGE THEM ? 

The rings glow after being exposed to either a UV light or sunlight. Glow times vary, depending on how long it’s charged, what color it is and how it's charged. When charged for 8-17 seconds with a strong UV flashlight, all rings should glow brightly for several minutes followed by an afterglow that lasts 2-5 hours. The next best option is sunlight, though it takes a little longer to max charge the ring completely.

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW! 

Not all glow colors glow with the same glow intensity! This is very important in order to avoid disappointment. If you want your ring to really glow bright I recommend GREEN and AQUA blue followed by BLUE. Other colors are much weaker and also extinguish much faster. So I recommend focusing on the above colors for max glow satisfaction. The glow is revealed in dark places. Normally when the rings don't glow the glow part is white or the color it glows.

REWARDS:  

Rewards for this Kickstarter will come in two tiers. Glowing and non-glowing Forged carbon fiber rings.  

Choose between 6 glow colors and different types of glow ring

Available glow colors: For the best glow experience we recommend green and aqua blue since these are the strongest. Followed by blue, orange, white, and red which has the weakest glow.

1. REWARD

FIRST PROTOTYPES AND EARLY DEVELOPMENT:

DESIGN:

We settled for a round curved design. The rings are designed for the best comfort with a more pronounced round curve. Thats why the outside and inside of the ring has a slim curve which prevents the ring from ever getting stuck on the finger and is also extremely comfortable when in contact with skin.

THE FIRST ALUMINIUM MOULD 

We had to create a special aluminium mould that could withstand the heat and pressure of the Forged carbon fiber process we had developed. This process allows us to make three-dimensional parts. Through a moulding and curing process. The carbon fiber is sandwiched between layers of resin. The process is still in the early stages of development. It can be improved. Thats why we need your support. 

THE FIRST PROTOTYPES 

The first prototype had tiny holes. The tiny holes are the result of trapped air that does not escape during the process. We have fixed that problem. The rings are extremely sensitive to light. Always revealing new marble patterns, even reflecting the surrounding area.  

STRONTIUM BASED GLOW POWDER 

Strontium aluminate is the material that makes the ring glow in the dark. After many prototypes we aimed for the most intensive glow possible and I am very pleased with the results.

The rings are shaped to their final look once the mixture of the resin and glow powder is added to them. Each ring is handmade and polished for the best comfort using a 3 step polish process. 

SIZING   

The best way to check your ring size is going to a local jewelry and get it checked. There are also many ways to check your ring size online. Many sites provide the knowledge of how to do it at home. Check it out if you are unsure of your size.  

But don’t worry only after the project is funded we will ask for your ring size. If you don’t like your ring or anything happens to it (if it scratches, breaks, or if it’s the wrong size) feel free to send it back and we will take care of it.

WHY KICKSTARTER AND WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.   

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to help purchase the tools needed to create these rings on a larger scale and to make them even more precise and beautiful. The current prototypes were all done by hand. Thank you so much for taking the time to check out this project. Check out the rewards and pledge, whatever you feel most comfortable with. I’m excited to make this project become reality with your support!

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.

I promise to keep each backer updated if I run into any delays, and any other difficulties along the way. But I am extremely positive that I will deliver on time.
