Ever wonder what gives our rings their unique marbled look? The answer is Forged Carbon Fiber. Incredibly light and extremely strong, we make the high-performance material in-house at our Brooklyn shop. Here’s a step-by-step look at the process:
Step 1: Shred
We start with American-sourced sheets of woven carbon fiber, then shred them to allow us to form the fibers into three-dimensional shapes.
Step 2: Press
We then heat the material and use a 20-ton press and custom-made tooling to form it into cylindrical logs. It’s this combination of heat and pressure that gives it the name “forged.”
Step 3: Heat
Once formed, the logs have to be cooked precisely in a kiln. If heated for too long, the carbon fiber will become brittle. If not heated for long enough, it won’t harden, so precision is critical.
The Result: Forged Carbon Fiber
Stronger than steel with the look of honed marble, Forged Carbon allows us to make high-performance rings that offer a modern take on the classic band.
