Hartford Steel Bangles with One Diamond are made using the serial number from illegal guns and metal from shell casings either swept from crime scenes or turned over during gun buyback and amnesty programs in Hartford, CT. % of the net proceeds from each purchase are donated back to Hartford to get more illegal guns off the streets.
The first in this series reads DEFACED because, as frequently happens with illegal guns, the serial number has been scratched out to avoid being identified and having any history traced. The metal shell casings used to create this line were retrieved by the Hartford Police Department. The oval shape of the bracelet mimics the trigger cage of a gun and serves as a reminder of the destruction that is caused when the trigger of a gun is pulled. The side of the bracelet is hand hammered to symbolize the hard work required, not only of the police, but of each individual, in the fight to get illegal guns off the streets of their community. Embedded next to the serial number is a single diamond (approx 0.11cts); strong, precious and rare...like human life. The diamonds used in all pieces of the Caliber Collection® are conflict free diamonds.
