Biker Jewelry Education

Biker jewelry, heavy metal jewelry, rock and roll jewelry...Whatever people are calling it these days, biker-themed jewelry sets itself apart from other types of jewelry by carrying more weight and substance. Massive biker jewelry bling is not for the weak-of-heart, unless you consider a one-pound silver wallet chain to be a feminine piece of jewelry. The biker jewelry of today has evolved from the classic wallet chain and skull ring into highly-intricate, custom, handcrafted, and beautiful pieces of wearable art made in sterling silver and other precious metals.

In the world of biker jewelry, boldness, designs and motifs matter. Silver aficionados value good silver designs just like tattoo lovers value great ink designs. Patina on silver provides beautiful black and silver contrasts like no other metals. So before you go out and buy yourself expensive, or even cheap, biker jewelry, do some research. Know what choices you have, other than the designer-inspired and mass-produced junk that saturates shopping malls and online auction sites. The choice is yours to say "no" to online designer rip-offs. And if you're looking to score a great deal on eBay, look for the eBay sellers that are offering authentic designer pieces and one-offs.
