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.

As I prepped for my trip to Toronto, I put word out that I wanted to meet the movers and shakers of the city; the designers, bloggers and generally cool creatives who make the city tick. Time and again, the name Biko came up. I did a little research, discovered it was a jewellery label and I instantly said a little prayer for my bank balance as I rapidly fell in love with damn near everything in the collection. I made a point to meet up with the designer Corrine Anestopoulos while in town to hear the story behind Biko and her plans for world domination.
