Jewel of the day: Fonderie 47 Metal and Gold Cuff

Fonderie 47 is a very unique endeavour. Owner Peter Thum gives the metals from destroyed weapons to jewellers such as James de Givenchy, who designed this bracelet, and uses the proceeds to fund the destruction of additional weapons.

Made of steel, 18k rose gold and diamonds, this cuff sells for USD $70,000. Its purchase will destroy 120 assault rifles in Africa.
