Newark Steel Bangles 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 Newark, NJ. % of the net proceeds from each purchase are donated to the Caliber Foundation.
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. 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. Each series carries a serial number that corresponds with one of the guns that were taken off the streets of Newark by the Police Department. 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.
