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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
