Most jewelry is designed to be easy on the eye, classic and timeless, so that it appeals to a wide audience of customers. That makes a lot of sense from a business standpoint. Plenty of jewelry companies you’ll find online make those plain gold wedding bands, which are inconspicuous, unchallenging, unassuming and (let’s face it) ordinary. And, of course, we, too, welcome anyone looking for that type of ring. We carry lots of them for all you guys who like ‘ordinary’ and are into timeless clothes and classic jewelry. There’s nothing wrong with being traditional.
You are different, dude.
We subscribe to the theory that jewelry is a way for you to communicate your own sense of individuality. If you don’t want to look like the crowd, don’t wear the kind of jewelry everyone else wears. You are someone who looks for unique jewelry that tells a story about who you are. You are different. Perhaps you are into punk fashion, or tattoos, biker style, rock, religious or totemic culture. Whatever your thing is, let us help you find the jewelry to express your uniqueness.
Welcome to the dark side.
Punk is the exact opposite of ordinary. Punk is skulls. Punk is gothic. Punk is dark, themed pieces. Punk is snakeheads. Punk is crossbones. Punk is an eye ring. Punk is protest.
Punk is totally badass. Punk is for all you rebellious guys out there.
The word punk is actually derived from prison slang, and it is an aggressive type of rock music movement that started in the 1970s. It was loud, hostile, violent and anarchistic. Think The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads and you’ll get the idea. Anything went at that time, and still does for many punk fans today – brightly colored mohawks, skintight leather, men’s makeup, nail polish, anything to set yourself apart.
Punk is about anything and everything freestyle. It is rebellious and non-conformist, to say the least. Punk represented a feeling in the 70s amongst the youth that was rooted in a sense of frustration and anger, even, at the prevailing conformities in music, morality and sexuality of the day. Punk artists and their fans picked up their style from other subcultures such as greasers, skinheads, rude boys, rockers and mods. They were all rebelling against authority and the popular music of the day, in one way or another.
In the world of women’s fashion, the punk and biker look continue to play an extremely important role. It has taken off yet again. High end punk pieces have been shown on the runway for several years now at Vivienne Westwood (the so-called Queen of Punk) Miu, Gucci, Versace and more. They include jewelry with razor blade, safety pins, sharp spike stud earrings and more. She’ll look awesome in punk too, by the way.
Punk lives on in our line of men’s rings.
There’s plenty of room in punk for self-expression in men’s clothing and in punk or biker tats - but you must have the appropriate finger bling to go along with the punk look. Our rings are specially engraved into several types of durable metal including titanium, stainless steel, plated gold and silver. Punk rings can be monochromatic or have colored stones. Just like the punk rockers of the 70s, our rings don’t fit any type of classic mold. Our designs are edgy and iconic, and yet our prices are reasonable enough to allow anyone to afford our rings - and get the look for less.
How and where should you wear punk rings? There’s no textbook answer to that. Far be it from us to tell you what to do. We suggest, however, that you wear them on multiple fingers and on both hands, especially if you have finger tats. You can also make a statement with one or two powerful rings if you don’t want the look to be over the top. If you have an office job, you might want to go this route and tone it down slightly, especially if your boss is the buttoned-up type. If you are in the fashion, design or music business - the sky’s the limit. Wear whatever jewelry says who you are.
We’re excited to show you what we have.
Punk it up, man.
