Hi I’m Dallin Wright. I am heading up the Triton Design. The traditional jewelry industry is pretty bland and I’m looking to change that. I arrived at the Triton Design after making hundreds of rings of all colors, sizes and shapes because it is so versatile in customization but because it glows bright and is just plain cool.
CALL TO ACTION
Back our Kickstarter to save 65% and help a small business launch! It's a win win. You save money on the coolest new design and you help someone at the same time. Pick a reward to the right and back our project! THANK YOU
About The Triton Design
The Triton Design is unique because it features a wide center band that is ultra bright and heavily concentrated with glow in the dark material. The sides feature two narrow glow stripes to accent the overall design. We use carbon fiber because we can customize the glow colors and designs within the carbon fiber itself and because of it’s unique properties that make it PERFECT for jewelry. This design has been the culmination of years of design and ring making work. This is a design we fell in love with and knew instantly it was a hit.
How Does It Glow?
We have infused photo luminescent material directly into layers within the carbon fiber itself. The photo luminescent material charges in direct sunlight, a bright led light, a UV or black light or even just a really bright light. The glow is brighter and lasts longer the dark the room. Green is the brightest, Blue is second, Purple is third and Red is forth. Red is interesting because it is red during the day and glows an orange red almost like fire embers. Essentially, all you need to do to get it to glow is walk outside in the sun for 30 seconds and walk back inside and turn out the lights.
What is Carbon Fiber?
We selected carbon fiber because of its versatility, hypoallergenic properties, it’s durability, and being lightweight. Carbon fiber allows us the flexibility to layer and infuse various colors and sizes of glow stripes. It is also hypoallergenic to people with traditional metal allergies. Carbon is the single most common element on the planet. Carbon Fiber is extremely strong and durable. There are a lot of silicone and gold rings out there. Silicone rips to shreds over time and gold scratches and dings easily. Carbon is ultra strong but it has a tiny bit of give so it’s very comfortable. It hides scratches amazingly as well which makes it ideal for someone that works with their hands. Carbon fiber is an incredible material. There’s a reason why it’s placed in space ships, luxury super cars, yachts and other products that require ultra strong and lightweight material for their construction.
Here's some helpful links to see how strong it is, how it's made and what makes carbon fiber so special.
Customizable Width, Size and Color.
You can select you ring size, width of the ring and the glow color. We make rings from size 5-15 tho we can make them larger or smaller upon request without an extra fee.
You can select a full size Triton ring. It is 1/2” or 12.5mm wide. A medium width ring which is roughly 3/8” or 9mm wide and it features the wide center stripe. Or you can select the narrow version that is 1/4” or 6mm wide. We essentially just cut down the ring to the width you’d like.
We offer 4 colors. Blue, Green, Red and Purple. We have plans to offer more but it depends on how this Kickstarter goes.
GREEN TRITON - The Brightest Glow
BLUE TRITON - The Most Popular Choice
RED TRITON - Red During the Day and Glows Red/Orange in the Dark
PURPLE TRITON - Historically a color for royalty
Is It Safe?
The materials we use are perfectly safe. Carbon fiber is a hypoallergenic material found in phone cases, wallets, watches, cuff links, rings and other wearable products. The lume or glow in the dark material we use is strontium aluminate that is cast in the same resin that is used to bond our carbon fiber layers together. It is the same type of glow that is found in watches, ceiling stars and other photo luminescent products. Ie, it may look nuclear, but it's not :).
We have several reward tiers and you may select which reward you'd like.
You will be able to select 1 ring of your color, width and size choice. Select this reward if you only want the one ring.
You will be able to select 2 rings of any combination of colors, width or size. For example, one green wide ring in a size 10 and another purple ring in a size 7 in a narrow width. Select this reward if you'd like two rings
You will be able to select any combination of 3 rings that you'd like much like the example in the 2 Ring reward tier, but you'll have an extra choice.
Get all 4 ring colors in whatever width or size you'd like.
Full Collection for 2
Get two sets of all 4 ring color ways in whatever size and width you'd like.
AFTER 30 SECONDS IN THE SUN
- March - April - Prototyping, testing and pre sales. We did a thorough prototyping process and even sold a few pre sale rings to allow customers to try it out.
- May - Kickstarter preparation and Launch. We've been filming, photographing, making, designing and negotiating to make this a reality.
- June - Complete our Kickstarter and send out rewards
- July - Order materials, order packaging, upgrade machines, and prepare for production
- August - Have all rings shipped by the end of August if things go well.
About The Maker
I'm Dallin, born and raised in the hot desert we call Arizona. I am an aspiring aerospace engineer and entrepreneur. I've been working with carbon fiber for several years now and I have crafted literally thousand of carbon fiber rings. My love for rockets and jets led me to my obsession for composite materials such as carbon fiber.
While attending school for astronautical engineering at ASU I started Anilo Carbon and have been running it ever since. I need your help to grow and scale this business to make more innovative designs and to develop more materials.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge so far has been getting our name out there and getting customers after the Kickstarter ends. We plan to use our funds from this Kickstarter to increase and change our advertising strategy.
Most Kickstarters have issues with fulfillment. We however, have already successfully fulfilled one project and have helped out several other campaigns by other ring makers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
