I think my progression on jewelry has followed my progression on clothes and fragrances. When you first get into this stuff, you care a lot about the classics, the rules, and what's considered "technically" good. You think a lot about quality because this stuff is all very expensive and you don't want to be taken for a sucker.Bump because I'm suddenly interested in jewelry but I'm a nincompoop when it comes to what is "valuable."
Looking at a couple of SLP stuff and it's probably overpriced but is something like 100% brass ring/bracelet worth north of $400? I get stylistic elements and brand cache adds up to the price but I'm more than happy with finding a different brand if the costs of making it is extremely low.
Likewise I'm gonna swing by Self Edge sometime and check out some of the Good Art wares and in house stuff.

Looking for some kind of simplish gold pendant necklace - nothing in particular, really - but I'm having a hard time finding much other than crosses and saints, astrological symbols, and kind of in your face stupid stuff like replica sardine tins and weed grinders.

The black is not a bad choice......don’t know about the bronze though. I would recommend a 79220N if going black bay.Tudor Black Bay Bronze?
I like that a lot, but have found that servicing can be... spotty. If you live in NYC or SF or some place where servicing and repairs are easily accessible, then vintage is awesome. But otherwise, it can be a pain. I still have a watch requiring repair (it's running incredibly fast), that is still sitting in a drawer because it needs to be packed up and sent rather than just requiring me to bring it into a shop.The black is not a bad choice......don’t know about the bronze though.

My first thought when seeing that bracelet was this guy......pure vintage goodness
