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.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
