The accessory for the man’s man.

Kudos to Wedgewood Rings in Wisconsin, a one-man shop that had the bright idea to make rings using materials from the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird spy planes that the U.S. Air Force once operated, Gizmodo writes. The article says that the titanium outer bands are made from the ejector nozzle of a Blackbird, which was sourced from a retired Air Force machinist. Additionally, the inner wood of the ring is made from teak that was reclaimed from the deck of the U.S.S. North Carolina. The rings retail between $255-$565 on Wedgewood’s website.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
