Spectore Plans Designer Titanium Lines

The company also introduces new women's rings tied to Charlie's Angels plot


Spectore Corp. will sponsor several titanium jewelry collections in collaboration with designers. It has signed an exclusive design agreement with jewelry designer Charles Bahringer to design and produce a new collection of men’s and women’s rings, bracelets, pendants and accessories. It’s scheduled for a full-scale launch by this holiday buying season. The pieces will be marketed as the Charles P. Bahringer Collection by Spectore and will be available only through Spectore-authorized retailers.

Charles Bahringer has owned and operated Out of Solitude, a custom design jewelry business in Milwaukee, WI, for 10 years. His customers include celebrities such as Cher, Melissa Etheridge, Tori Amos, Oprah, Ethan Hawke and Steven Tyler of Areosmith. After years of working with traditional precious metals, Bahringer recently began to experiment with titanium.

Kelly Liddicoat, winner of the 2002 World Titanium Council’s International Titanium Jewelry Design Competition, has joined Spectore’s design team. Along with creating her own designs, she serves as production coordinator between the design team and model makers.

In addition to the designer lines, Spectore introduced new women’s styles over the summer in coordination with a plot twist in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, in which the angels search for two titanium rings. The company received many calls about titanium rings after the movie was released, says Larry DeBerry of Spectore.
