A good piece of jewelry can enhance any outfit. I strongly believe that it’s something worth really investing in, as you end up with a piece that will slot easily into your regular rotation and stay there for the foreseeable future. And even more so than a well-loved denim jacket, jewelry is something you can definitely pass down the generations, without any dodgy AC/DC patches to worry about.
Just like with any other purchase, there are a few things I like to check off of my internal list in order to partially justify parting with more than just pocket change; 1. Is it from a reputable brand? 2. Does it blend high-quality materials with expert craftsmanship? 3. Does it have a cool story/reference behind it?
This take on a traditional Irish Claddagh ring from U.S-based GOOD ART HLYWD ticks all these boxes and then some. Hand-crafted at their foundry in L.A. from .925 Sterling Silver and 22k gold, this ring is the result of a 5-year passion project by the brand’s founder Josh Warner, paying tribute to his Irish heritage.
Offered in the aforementioned silver, 22K gold, or a two-tone finish that blends both materials, the level of detail and intricacy on these is nothing less than you’d expect from GOOD ART.
Priced starting from $595, pre-orders are available now from Iron Heart
