“Jewelry for Gentlemen” is a book recently published by Thames & Hudson. “A dazzling overview of the overlooked art of male jewelry, an increasingly popular requisite of the well-dressed man.”
This book features some bad-ass jewelry. A skull with a snack crawling in and out of the eye sockets. A leopard on an orb. Some Japanese warrior mask ring.
Looks pretty cool! But then there’s some more dainty items like a Lily of the Valley brooch.
Perhaps there could be a follow-up book that shows gentlemen jewelry that is more on the rough side. Might we start with my clothespin necklace, circa 1994?
I have a bunch of other necklaces from college. I should make a blog post about them some day. All of them are little random things attached to a string.
Hat-tip to the Andersen Library in Whitewater, Wisconsin for blogging about this book.
