Cult Elements: White Denim Micarta Hybrid Exterior with Tortoiseshell Resin Liner.
The Cult Ring – a model in it’s own league. Made with actual Micarta, this ring had one inspiration behind it – Cult Eyewear. Cult Eyewear is becoming one of today’s leading frame choices that bring back the feel of the 50s and 60s – The James Dean era. Daniel Rosini wanted to bring a model of rings back into time and express that era in something wearable for your finger. A brilliant way to combine that time period and Cult Eyewear into a luxury ring was to use denim and tortoiseshell as a base. No glow behind this ring… No bells and whistles… Just a clean, vintage look to take the stage.
Micarta is another brand name for composites of linen, canvas, paper, fiberglass, carbon fiber or other fabric in a thermosetting plastic. It was originally used in electrical and decorative applications. Micarta was developed by George Westinghouse at least as early as 1910 using phenolic resins. These resins were used to impregnate paper and cotton fabric, which were cured under pressure and high temperature to produce laminates. These laminates are what we consider Micarta today. One can say this material in itself is flushed with history, and this was the main reason behind reaching the effect of that era in a ring.
