Our statement cuff is made from the metal of a Range Rover Autobiography painted a custom Lamborghini color, arancio argos/pearl orange. We handcrafted a sterling silver setting to encase a large triangular-shaped piece of Fordite. "Fordite," or "Detroit Agate," is a stone made from layers upon layers of cured auto-paint. The layers of dried car paint eventually build up into a chunk of "rough," which is then cut and polished into cabochons filled with swirling kaleidoscopes of color. This setting is riveted onto two slender strips of stainless steel cut from the wheel surround of a Mercedes G550. We refer to this as a 'floating' setting because the setting itself isn't actually riveted onto the Range Rover orange metal. This ensures that the Fordite 'stone' will stay snugly in place when the cuff is flexed.
Taking car metal and turning it into beautiful jewelry is no easy task. Our artists spend a lot of time ensuring that each CRASH item meets our high standards for quality and design.
We engraved the name of the car it came from inside the cuff, as well as the date it was created. All CRASH jewelry is one-of-a-kind and handmade in our studio based in a body shop in Los Angeles. Your order will arrive in custom CRASH packaging with a certificate of authenticity. 1.25" wide, 6.25" long, aluminum. Setting approx. 2" x 3/8" at the widest part of the triangle.
One of a kind!
