Detroit Steel Bangles with One Diamond are made using the serial number from illegal guns and metal from shell casings either seized by the Detroit Police Department as premise guns or turned over during gun buyback and amnesty programs in Detroit, MI. % of the net proceeds from each purchase are donated back to Detroit to get more illegal guns off the streets.
There is powerful double meaning behind the name The Caliber Collection®. The first is the caliber of a gun. The second is how the caliber of a city is raised when illegal guns are taken off its streets. As a continuation of their devoted and comprehensive efforts to eradicate illegal gun violence from the streets of their city, the Detroit Police Department and Rock Ventures have collaborated with Caliber Collection to create a virtuous cycle using the serial numbers from premise weapons and metal from shell casings. The result is Caliber Detroit. The oval shape of the bangle 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. Each series carries a serial number that corresponds with one of the premise guns that were seized at crime scenes by the Detroit Police Department. The side of the cuff 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.
