Summer is the season for outdoor rock concerts, and we’ve picked some funky pieces you can wear to the show. You’ll look so rocker chic while dancing in the crowd that you may even acquire a fan base of your own.
A few tips on the look. According to record-producer-turned-gallery-owner Gerard Marti, rock star jewelry sends a message: rebellion. Skulls (probably taken from the pirate flag), Celtic crosses (probably related to druids), and layers of chunky statement pieces are the rage.

Rock & Roll jewelry doesn’t always have to be big, bad, and black. A 1.60 ct princess cut diamond in the center, and 180 round brilliants encircling it, and diamond crosses in the shank gives this ring serious heavy metal cred. Image Courtesy of eragem.com

You don’t have to be in a stadium to wear Rock & Roll jewelry. A nightclub or party are great venues to strut your stuff. So have fun with it – because that’s what it’s all about.
