i want some werkstatt munchen rings but i don't know how much wear they'd actually get because i find jewelry a hassle to wear like 75% of the time. :\ should i?


That's the thing. I don't really like bulky stuff (I don't even particularly like wearing a watch), but I definitely would like some rings and maybe a slim bracelet or two. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, but I always dig Takahiro Miyashita's jewelry steeze - definitely more than the bling-goth WM and CH stuff. Stuff like nonnative, maybe - finer, but still masculine.



Maybe look into Cody Sanderson, he worked with Miyashita on the thesoloist jewelry

Navajo stuff basically

Also not a fan of CH. It's on the same level as ed hardy. WM has some niece pieces, but some of them veer into the clunky macho style.
Here are a few that I think are nice.

Chin Teo
Amy Glen
Tobias Wistessen
Todd Reed
Kimberly Deterne

Ann Demeulemeester always puts out nice jewelry, IMHO.

WM stuff is hit or miss for me. I want like 4-5 rings and one necklace to hold the rings I'm not wearing that day and then just mess with permutations of amount of rings I wear on my hands.

Will probably cost upwards of $800

I have a zissou leather bracelet and wear it all the time. I also really like mmm jewelry but only own one piece since the prices are insane.

You can get ok rings for $15 at the mall. Go for brass.

Necro bumping this thread cause I'm hoping we can get another forum discussion about jewelry. I've been hunting for more pieces, but find it's often easier to shop for this stuff in person, rather than online, but Im hoping to change that. Anyone wearing anything nowadays?

Some stuff I've been wearing:

tumblr_inline_p9vn5zya2J1qfex1b_500.jpg


Native American bracelets from Self Edge and Len Wood's Indian Territory Gallery. The leather bracelet is from Hermes. Ring is from Jeff Neff (sold at Self Edge). Necklaces are a mix of vintage pendants, a Native American piece (again Self Edge), and some things from Article 22, which is a company that recycles metal sourced from de-activated landmines scattered throughout Southeast Asia after the war. Some of the proceeds from those sales help demine the area.

Recently bought some rings from Chin Teo. And hunting for more Native American stuff.

Also kind of into Kei Shigenaga, a Japanese jewelry maker. Stuff is kind of dark artisanal, but seems like it could be worn with workwear and more contemporary stuff.

This necklace looks nice. Supposedly inspired by Kei seeing two Japanese carps swimming together. I can see it going well in some Visvim-y outfits.

I'm mostly interested in the rings. They have this nice contrast between being polished and feeling organic, like half finished and somewhat imperfect. The top one was one of Kei's first pieces and created through freehand carving. The second is inspired by Kintsugi, where Japanese people fix broken pottery by rejoining the broken pieces with gold. (Self Edge has some terrific eyewear right now with the same sensibility, but for some reason, they can only advertise it in-store and not online).

On the Rei ring, the gold here is just poured into the cracks, the silver isn't actually rejoined.



A bit about kintsugi:



Fallow and some other places online has Kei's stuff, but while the prices aren't unreasonable, they're also not cheap. Rings are about $600-ish. Main thing is that, I think, all the pieces are made upon order and take four weeks for delivery, which I assume means there's no returns. And while sizing probably isn't an issue, buying jewelry final sale like that kind of makes me anxious. Would be cool if there was a US stockist that could offer returns though.

Anyone have other stores or brands they're liking right now?

Last pic: a Native American jewelry box. I've always wanted one of these things, but good ones are stomach-churning expensive. The one below is from Shiprock.

Wearing a suit daily in a business environment precludes extraneous jewelry. I stick to GSE Elevator’s (a colossal dickhead by the way) advice for work wear.
  • “Wedding rings, watches, and cufflinks are the only acceptable form of jewelry for a man. Unless the Dalai Lama gave you that bracelet, leave it at home.”
https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-dress-the-part-on-wall-street-2013-8

That said I like bracelets or a necklace and such while on vacation. I always wear a rope bracelet(s) and something similar when diving/snorkeling/on the beach. Fits the vibe, sun, water and Dark and Stormy cocktails by the bucket. My wife and I were married on St John, USVI and think their famous petroglyph is pretty cool. 1500 year old symbol carved in the rocks. Naturally there are plenty of versions available.
