A History of Innovation

In 1974 Dr. Harry Ferrari lost a tennis match due to inferior synthetic gut strings. Ferrari, a nuclear engineer and avid tennis player, became determined to develop a better tennis string. Dr. Ferrari’s experiments radically improved the strings’ performance, and ultimately led to the creation of the patented GAMMA irradiation process. With that, GAMMA Gut was born, a string technology that provided players with greater power, feel and control. In 1977 the United States Racquet Stringer’s Association rated GAMMA Gut the #1 string where it would remain unbroken for the next 23 years. Even 40 years later, our patented processes, superior design and string technology are still giving players a distinct edge over the competition.

As technology advanced, jewelry became more intricate and was often made from precious metals such as gold and silver, as well as precious gems such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. In the Middle Ages, jewelry was often used to display wealth and status, with the most elaborate pieces reserved for royalty and the nobility.

Rings are often used to symbolize love and commitment, with engagement rings and wedding bands being the most well-known examples.
