As you know, I’ve recently gotten into the world of glowing rings (here and here), primarily from Rune Refinery and Anilo Carbon. Well, they’ve got a new project underway (because CarbonFi is a sister company), for the CarbonFi Aurora.
On one hand, the CarbonFi Aurora rings are rather similar to what I’ve shown you before – it’s layered carbon fiber, alternating luminous and non-luminous materials. For this project, they’re creating rings with narrower stripes than what I’ve previously shown you. Additionally, you’ve got some options involved:
- You can choose the lume color (green, turquoise, red, blue, and purple on tap; more colors as possible stretch goals)
- Width: three different width are showing up on the project page – narrow, medium, or wide
- Finish: matte or glossy
Past that, of course, you’ll need to know your ring size. What width you choose will impact that as well, with the widest ring generally being recommended to go up a 1/2 size. Regardless of the options you’d go with, early bird pricing for the CarbonFi Aurora ring is just $61.
Rings maybe not your thing? Well, then you’ve got another option to get some of that sweet, sweet luminous carbon fiber, in the form of a bead/keychain. Basically, what these are are the center portion of the rings (after they’re cut from the blank), turned into something to help you location your keys, zipper pull, or whatever piece of gear. This is a clever way to keep making use of the material, and at $25, it’s a way for you to check out the glow in person.
As it stands right now, funding for the CarbonFi Aurora project is at about 93%, with things wrapping up on February 15, 2019. I’ve a feeling they’ll hit the mark, and given what I’ve seen from Rune Refinery and Anilo Carbon, I don’t imagine you’ll be disappointed with what you pick up from this campaign. project page / carbonfi.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
