It’s fun to take photos of jewelry out and about, or “in the wild,” as I like to think of it.
Eryn was worried about her nail polish being chipped, but I thought it gave her a 1990s Courtney Love vibe. Let’s declare that chipped polish is fashionable again, the way New York Times did in 2008.
Here’s another shot. From left: three barbed wire stacking rings (platinum, 18K rose gold, 18K yellow gold); platinum barbed wire full-finger ring; 18K rose gold crab ring; Eryn’s own ring; Siobhan perma-stacked stacking ring; ruby-eyed skull ring, worn as mid-finger ring, and Eryn’s own ring; my gold college class ring (!!) worn as mid-finger ring, and Eryn’s own ring.
I almost melted down my class ring a couple of years ago, when gold prices peaked. I hadn’t worn that ring in decades. But I spared the ring because I like the signet look, and I knew if I kept it around, signet rings would stay in my mind. It worked! When singer/songwriter Skylar Grey asked me to design a “No Class” class ring for her, I thought, “Signets, yes, I’ve been wanting to do that” and hopped to it. I even made a gold one for myself. Then, while looking through some inventory this week, I came across the college ring again and realized it looks good worn on the same hand as my gold No Class ring. Proximity to something funny makes boring things better!
