A buddy of mine and his wife have the same thing for their wedding band.Or swear. Or wear dungarees outside of gardening tasks. This is why they keep me in the back room like a gimp. But yeah, it's visible here:
I like cuffs in principle, but find myself constantly trying to tighten them. So right now I am in the process of figuring out a heavy cuff (something like 150 g of silver what will close with a leather strap. I've fiddled so much with some that I'm come close to snapping a pretty good cuff otherwise. I know that it sounds wierd to most people, but I inadvertently unbent, with one hand, a brass nail cuff. So I don't generally get any jewelry that isn't closed. like, even a small ring in a soft metal like 18K gold - you are going to need Hulk level strength to pull it apart. But if the ends are not joined, pulling things apart only takes one hand, even on a pretty thick piece of metal. The exception are like, things like actual curb chains in hardened steel meant to stop bike thieves and whatever. You can obviously still break them, but you are not going to do it by mistake and with bare hands.
In the grand scheme of jewelry Good Art is quite inexpensive. Walk into any Dover Street Market, Barney's, Fred Segal, etc.. and look at the prices of the jewelry, then looking at Good Art's prices and you'll realize that it's actually very well priced.I wanna start with a simple, solid chain bracelet. Who would y'all recommend, if I don't want to drop Good Art money?
Also, is Good Art stuff especially well-made or just especially well-marketed? It looks gorgeous but I still don't know the first thing about jewelry.
Email [email protected] and our Good Art specialist will try to get any comparisons you need if the items are in stock or used to be in stock at one point.speaking of good art, i've interested in the model 18 ring in medium, but i cant seem to find any photos of anyone wearing it. by chance, does anyone here happen to own it?
i love the frida ring but it's way too big on my finger, and the model medium 18 ring seems (sort of) like a smaller profile version of the frida
Honestly, the next thing that I would go for is a Good Art 10A or 10B bracelet. I liked the 10C, but it is $2600 or so, and the 10B is a grand cheaper, and frankly, what you want unless you want something super chunky.I got a Good Art Belt Buddy to start. Not really jewelry per se, but it definitely is a cool and hugely practical piece. Better than the keys-in-pocket solution I've been using for years. Looks great, too.
Looking around a bit more, I figure with the exception of that Iron Heart bracelet I might as well just save up for Good Art. Anything else would be the wrong sort of compromise. The rosette motif is just too darn good. Might work a Peanuts piece in there.
Gives me a good reason to stop buying other stuff I don't need.
