The Pharaoh ‘Dark Night’ features a frame in hand-carved sterling silver with gold skull by Lee Downey, inlaid with carbon fiber. The clip is machined and blast-polished from tempered stainless steel, with a beautiful engraving bright cut against the matte-finished background. Pharaoh money clip - inspired by the designs of ancient Egypt - draws on the elegant vessel forms of antiquity to create a simple yet striking range of possibilities, rendered in a variety of our hallmark materials and techniques. An elegant form with an enduring legacy.
Carved Silver is done by hand with chisels and rotary tools. William Henry works with the finest silversmiths to create elaborate (and durable) carvings in sterling silver. In many cases, we use colored sapphires and other precious stones, set in 18K gold bezels, to further decorate these masterful carvings.
Carbon fiber is a material consisting of microscopic fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio. Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
Carbon fiber's properties, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, competition sports. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.
