Solaris - Enrich Your Atmosphere

£33,215

Enrich the atmosphere around you with Solaris, the celestial bracelet you can infuse with your favourite fragrance.

The latest innovation set to join the Lockstone range. Modelled on the planets around us, Solaris puts you at the centre of the Solar System.

The Heavens Brought Down To Earth

The planets. Our home and our neighbours. From the scorched surface of Mercury to the icy reaches of Neptune, the rocky deserts of Mars to the great gas giants of Jupiter and Saturn, our solar system is a rich, diverse collection of worlds, each unique, but each part of our celestial identity here on Earth.

So esteemed by the human race, the planets were named for gods and deities beyond imagining, yet they remain so far away, mere flickers of light to the naked eye, if even that.

Bringing the massive down to the microscopic scale, we’ve taken the planets and our home as inspiration for Solaris, paying homage to the greatest jewels we can see, giving them a home close to us and those around us in the form of discreet, minimal jewellery.

Solaris uses our unique Lockstone material, so whatever your scent, Lockstone captures it, needing only a few sprays that will last up to seven times longer than wearing your fragrance without it, so you will have the fresh scent of your fragrance with you throughout the day.

Whatever your scent, Solaris captures it, needing only a single spray that will bring your unique element to any atmosphere.

Your Favourite Fragrance All Day Long

The specific science that we draw upon is capillary action – where water molecules are drawn deep into the material, to migrate slowly back up to the surface through osmosis. It is then that the water evaporates, releasing the fragrance: slow, sustained scent release.

Our patent pending material draws fragrance in, slowly releasing the scent over a long duration. For you this means longer lasting and better performing fragrances, where expensive designer scents enjoy a longer life and through which an aroma can be sustained far beyond a single day’s wear.

Our signature minimalism makes Solaris a piece that can be teamed with any style - as suited to men as they are to women, and as wearable for the formal occasion as they are for the every day.

 

Our collection of celestial bracelets, harnessing the unique qualities of our Lockstone material.

Solaris Black - Agate stone, born at the beginning of the Solar System and found in volcanic rock, this naturally occurring deep black stone sets Solaris in the darkness of space.

Solaris Meteor - Lava stone is formed of vesicular basalt, a key component of the earth’s oceanic crust and which helped inspire our entire Lockstone range. In Solaris it represents our meteoric voyage through the galaxy.

Solaris Nebula - Stellaria was discovered by Venetian monks in the 17th century in pursuit of creating gold, it features bright metallic crystals suspended in a semi-transparent glass matrix of manganese. For Solaris, it represents the sparking nebulas of the Solar System.

Solaris IO - Obsidian, formed in the chaotic seconds after a volcanic eruption by the rapid cooling of viscous lava, obsidian represents the perpetual chaos of our solar system.

Solaris Aurora - An ancient and rare material, Lapis lazuli has been used to create precious sculptures since the 3rd millennium BC. Solaris uses highly polished lapis lazuli stones with sparkling pyrite veins, emulating the mysterious nebulas beyond our solar system.

From discovery to exploration Solaris was developed from our highly popular Lockstone bracelet as a step beyond the known and looking to the cosmos for inspiration.  

The concept of incorporating the planets into jewellery struck us as the next step and we took off developing Solaris as the next phase of Vanacci’s voyage. Adding shape and variety to the established bracelet was the next challenge. We couldn’t just stick some orbs in that resembled the solar system. We individually modelled each planet according to its size and assembled them as a system to be worn on the wrist.

 

A simple breakdown of each of our Solaris bracelets to help you choose your style.

 

As with the original Lockstone range, this naturally formed material has been under the microscope within our labs, where we’ve been able to harness micro-porous structures to create a revolutionary use of matter.

A simplistic three step process:

  • Place Solaris on a surface that can't be damaged by your fragrance and spray with your favorite fragrance; watch as the liquid saturates and is then gradually absorbed. 
  • Leave for a few minutes – allowing the fragrance to be fully infused into the Lockstones of Solaris. 
  • Your fragrance will then be locked within the stone and through its micro absorbent structure your scent will be gradually released through contact with the skin.

 

 

Risks and challenges

After four highly successful Kickstarter campaigns, we're very much accustomed to the running and fulfilment processes that come with crowdfunding.

We have arrangements in place with Royal Mail as our shipping partner to distribute worldwide, with shipments currently occurring every working day.

As we now produce Lockstone items daily, we are set up to create the Solaris range. While running our previous three campaigns, we still operated our regular day to day business, distributing large numbers of parcels daily. With our new partnership with Royal Mail, we can now generate our own postage labels, cutting down considerably on time and allowing us to fulfil even quicker than before.
