I’ve gotta be honest – the majority of stuff that pops up in my inbox is rarely anything to shout about. Unless a brand is doing something that really catches my eye, a whole lot of stuff winds up in the trash. Then today, this little gem popped up and I thought you guys might like to know about it. Rust & Regret is a new accessories label based in Melbourne, Australia and they’ve done a collaboration with artist Derek Nobbs. The result is a limited edition, sterling silver signet ring. I’m not ordinarily a massive fan of the skull and bone thing, but this is totally something I’d wear.
There are only 40 pieces made worldwide, retailing at AUS$350, so you better move quick if you want one. They’re officially available on January 31st 2013, but pre-orders are happening from now until this Friday (Dec 14th), with custom-sizing available – so it could be a kind of post-Christmas gift, if you’re in the market for some new finger decoration.
More pics after the jump.

Fashion Weeks are loved by many and loathed by some. Let the naysayers yap on about how frivolous and irrelevant it all is, but there’s no denying the influence these shows have on the way we shape our personal style, whether we like to admit it or not. But if you’re someone with an interest in fashion, Fashion Weeks can almost be alienating – how do shows in London, Paris, Milan and New York speak to your experience if you don’t live in any of those cities? Well, the good folks at creative agency Hebe Media in Leeds are putting regional fashion at the forefront this week with the first ever Leeds Digital Fashion Week.
