The Caliber Collection is made up of metal from 250 guns and bullet casings seized by the Newark Police Department. The result is a series of pieces that embody the gun’s transformation from a destructive weapon to a powerful symbol of renewal. Jewelry for a Cause proudly donates a portion of the proceeds from each sale to the Gun Buyback Amnesty program in Newark. Each of the guns was carefully processed and released to Jewelry for a Cause by the Police Department of Newark. Their serial numbers were tracked and are an important part of the design in each of the pieces of jewelry. The metal from the guns and bullet casings were shredded by Sims Metal Management in Jersey City.The name Caliber was chosen for its two meanings; the caliber of a gun and how the caliber of a city is raised when illegal guns are taken off its streets.
