Fancy men’s jewelry, but what about rough men’s jewelry?


Jewelry for Gentleman book

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.

    I’ve been itching to make my own eyeglass frames. I want my glasses to be more rough.
    Very handmade. Like, twisting a bunch of wire. I don’t know where i’d get the lenses from. I should be getting a pair every year from warby parker. I believe, with my insurance, they end up costing only like $10. So maybe I should get the lenses from Warby Parker.

    I hadn’t seen this book yet; thanks for posting about it. Yes, share your objects on a string collection!
