Silva/Bradshaw: Shift & LevaPosted: November 28, 2011
The elegantly subtle Shift and Leva rings from Silva / Bradshaw are unisex & stackable and cast & polished in New York City where the designers reside. They are plated in Lincoln RI. The rings are also available in a color 3D printed nylon series.
From Silva / Bradshaw: We are particularly proud of our Black DLC finish, which stands for diamond-like-coating. Typically used in metal-cutting tools and micro chips to extend life spans, it consists of a thin layer of pure carbon deposited on top of hardened stainless steel. The carbon is applied in a pressurized gas chamber with high heat, which ensures that the finish is extremely strong and will last for a very long time – a crucial aspect of our design intent since we wanted to distinguish our product from the typical oxidized silver finish that usually wears in just a few weeks. The Gold Vermeil is a thick, nickel-free, 14k plating over tarnish-resistant Sterling Silver.
