This Startup Turns Illegal Guns Into Jewelry

In a community alert dated Wednesday, the LAPD said investigators were "searching for any pieces that may have been purchased or sold by hairstyles for kids pawn shops." The flier described Gatto's jewelry as "ornate" and said the pieces often included his signature. "Mr. Gatto engraved many of his pieces with his initials and name 'J A Gatto' along with a circular design," the flier read. Police asked anyone with "any pieces or information about them" to contact detectives at (213) 486-6890. Gatto's killing rattled the Silver Lake community he had long called home, marking the neighborhood's first homicide since May 2012.

The Jewelry Exchange says it plans to expedite the full launch, which was originally planned for Valentine's Day, due to the promising customer reaction to the partial launch in November. Ashkan Tahvildaran, the head of Design and Production, says, "We were inspired to design the Infinity collection because we liked the connection between the diamonds, which symbolize eternity, and infinity. We are very proud of the product's success, as well as other recent additions to our product line up." Some of the other top sellers in November were the Certified 1ct. Solitaires for $1990, the best value in the marketplace, and the new, classically-styled, 18k gold diamond rings. The Jewelry Exchange has been in the business of selling quality diamond jewelry for over 35 years.

It's an area Thum is very familiar with. In 2009, he started Fonderie 47, which collects AK 47 assault rifles from conflict zones in Africa and uses the metal to make jewelry and other accessories. Each sale helps fund the destruction of assault rifles in Africa, said Thum. He estimated that 34,000 weapons have been destroyed in Congo and Burundi as a result of Fonderie 47.
