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.

Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
