    So as far as I can tell there isn't a topic for discussing jewelry here. I don't know how many here are wearing it, but I figure there's at least a handful so it would be cool to have a place to put discussion. I recently ordered this bracelet that I'm looking forward to wearing: [​IMG] SCHORL x Sympathy of Soul -- Â¥19,000 I'm still considering the matching necklace (if I could find it anywhere, anyway): [​IMG] SCHORL x Sympathy of Soul -- Â¥39,000 I'm still looking for a bracelet for my other hand, and these are the ones I've liked so far: [​IMG] Sympathy of Soul -- Â¥30,000 [​IMG] Animal Worship -- Â¥28,000 [​IMG] Diet Butcher Slim Skin x Garden of Eden -- Â¥15,000 I really like the DBSS one but I think it might look weird to have a leather bracelet on each wrist ... Finally, another DBSS one, which is pretty old and cannot be found anywhere. If you know where I can get it, please tell me! [​IMG] Anyway, comments on any of this is welcome, and I look forward to seeing your own jewelry haves and wants [​IMG]

    'Â¥'?
    Now is that ¥ Yen(Japan) or ¥ Yuan RMB(China)?

    There have been many attempts at jewelry topics and i think it has boiled down to

    - Wear a watch
    - Wear some bead bracelets with your watch if you want
    - Wear your wedding band

    Your pictures aren't showing but I went ahead and googled a couple of them and all I saw were glorified versions of random cheap dragon/skull jewelry. I bought a necklace of a shield with a dragon on it because I thought it looked cool, but I was 10 years old.

    I like some of the Vim Beget pieces: http://blackbirdballard.com/Vim_Beget_Mens.html

    I have one of the bracelets, and will probably get the signet ring and id bracelet eventually (the later will need to be special ordered, the one at Blackbird is a tad too small for me).

    Self Edge has some great jewelry pieces as well from various brands. Other favorites of mine: Rogues Gallery, Black Sheep and Prodigal Sons, MMM, Giles and Brother, and Schosha.

    If you're thrifty, etsy can sometimes be a good resource - however you have to search through lots of crap to find the few good things and even then they often won't be as nice as a more professionally finished piece.

    Hate to say but those look like they came from a Renaissance Fair.

    Ridukkuluss dude. The year starts with a 2 now, you can wear jewelry if you want. Fuck it.

    I have a sterling chain necklace with a (non-christian-icon) fish on it that my girlfriend got me for Christmas, wear it on occasion. Also had a pair of stainless studs but I lost one so now I'm doing one stud and one small ring.

    I've seen traditional Indian jewelrey with a chain that went from a nose ring to an earring, does anyone know what that's called? I'd love to see that on the runway.

    Also, Omar Joseph Nasser-Khoury has some cool jewelry and jewelry styling:

    This is amazing. Does he have his own jewelry line though? All of the things that I've read about him only mention his latest exhibition.

    Yen. Uncontrol seems to prefer Japanese designers.

    I like Vim Beget. I wish that they'd use larger chain links for their bracelets.

    Is anyone else having problems seeing the pictures?

    I don't see what the point of bringing such a conservative view into a clearly anti-conservative thread is. Fashion is supposed to be fun.

    Another piece I'd like, 100% ridiculous:

    No problem here.

    I currently have a St. Benedict medallion I will wear (more sentimental than religious at this point in my life), and I'll break out the college ring if the occasion calls for it. I'm open to getting jewelry, but I haven't looked enough yet to know what I want.

    I wear a watch and my wedding ring, but have considered picking up a Miansai rope bracelet.

    I've pondered the idea. Good-looking men's jewelry is hard to find though, men's bracelets especially. Most metal bracelets look like they belong on Jersey Shore roid-heads. Most Rope/hemp/wood/etc. bracelets look like they belong on filthy hippies.

    Thinking of picking up a leather bracelet, but will probably just make my own
