THE BARREL BAND PROCESS
It took over 18 months and nearly two dozen prototypes to complete the design the Barrel Band. We tried different widths, thicknesses, finishes, and fits. It even took implementing a completely new procedure to size the rings and not compromise the integrity of the shotgun barrel. This procedure is something that has never been done before in the jewelry industry.
Each band is machine cut directly from the shotgun barrel to ensure quality and precision. The band is then cut again by the hands of experienced jewelers to the proper finger size. The 14kt gold insert is then added and a "tack-weld" is used to secure the insert in place. The band then goes through over 6 different polish stages before reaching its final state. Lastly, the ring goes through a thorough inspection to ensure the highest quality product possible.
THE RING BOX PROCESS
When deciding what type of packaging to use, we wanted to take the same approach as we did with the Barrel Band. High quality materials and production, and also manufactured in the United States.
