Billiard Ball Rings

Billiard Ball Rings

It should come as no surprise to any of you that we're pretty big fans of jewelry here at Cool Material. But we're also not interested in the average, or run-of-the-mill when it comes to our bodily accoutrements. Enter designer Eleanor Salazar. Using used pool balls, she creates ...

Silver Mechanical Ring

Silver Mechanical Ring

Using hardware materials for things other than their intended purpose is nothing new--Galvanized gas pipe shelves, rope lamps made with mason jars, the list goes on and on. Now, rather than just furniture and light fixtures, you can have hardware store jewelry too. The strap on b...

Nut Dice Ring

Nut Dice Ring

Some the biggest decisions in our lives were made with the flip of a coin or the roll of a die. Why do you think we got married? Problem is, sometimes you don't have a quarter in your pocket, and carrying around a pair of dice makes you look like some sort of gambling-addicted st...

Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

We’ve never found a belt that fit exactly right. With holes every inch, they are always a bit too loose or a bit too tight. Mission Belt solved this problem, with a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″. That means a comfortable fit even when your weight fluctuates. There are plenty of styles to choose from but you can also go a la carte and mix and match buckles and straps. We’d be fans of Mission Belt even if that was all that was great about the product and the company, but the fact that a dollar from every Mission Belt sale goes to the “Mission” to fight global hunger and poverty is a huge plus in our book. By partnering with Kiva, Mission Belt has made over 67,000 microloans in more than 70 countries, totaling over $1.6 million in loans. Not a bad little bonus for buying a good-looking belt that will fit perfectly for years to come. And yeah… it’s the belt you saw on Shark Tank.

44 Caliber Pistol Ring

44 Caliber Pistol Ring

Men's jewelry is all the rage these days. From celebrities to average joes, men are strapping on bracelets, sliding on rings and clasping necklaces like never before. It's not that there isn't something cool about what they're trying to say, but if they told you fanny packs were ...

Custom Silver State Coin Rings

Custom Silver State Coin Rings

Jewelry, specifically rings, doesn't make sense all the time. You have to find something unique, something different and something classy. You also can't over do the rings because then you'll end up looking like a goth from high school and no one wants that. These custom double s...

Dog State Design Rings

Dog State Design Rings

If we could, we’d pay to have an extra finger surgically added to one of our hands just so we could rock another ring from Dog State Design.  Every single one of Toshi/T-Dog Junior’s rings is the guy equivalent of a flawless Tiffany’s masterpiece.  Crafted with an eye for...

Titanium Tire Tread Ring

Titanium Tire Tread Ring

Nothing says "Even though I'm in a serious relationship and have a real job, I still think about my bad boy days" quite like a titanium ring shaped like a tire tread. Just because you choose (however begrudgingly) not to attend Jager-bomb Wednesdays does not mean you have to comp...

Bottle Opener Rings

Bottle Opener Rings

A wedding band has long been the only ring that actually accomplishes multiple things.  It both signifies that you’re a married man but it also, by some weird law of nature, attracts more women.  (Single guys, give it a shot.)  Now, you can buy a ring that also serves two pu...

Beat Poet Concrete Rings

Beat Poet Concrete Rings

Wearing concrete used to mean going for a nice, eternal swim with the fishes. Under those conditions, there probably aren't any women in bikinis around either and since those are the only circumstances we swim under, we're not interested. Beat Poet is reclaiming concrete from str...

Toby Jones Bandaid Ring

Toby Jones Bandaid Ring

Along with aspirin and condoms, bandaids are one of modern medicine's most important gifts to men everywhere. There isn't much that can't be fixed with a bandaid and Toby Jones appreciates the fact that, at any given time, a man is probably wearing a bandaid. We understand that t...

J. W. Anderson Circle Rings

J. W. Anderson Circle Rings

On a man, a ring can say a lot about you as a person - even if it's confusing. Yeah, you might have "already ordered," but that doesn't mean you can't look at the menu. She might even find you desirable enough to make you the happy hour special. Getting your name tattooed like ri...

Sterling Hot Rod Rings

Sterling Hot Rod Rings

Sure, jewelry and hot rods don't exactly go hand in hand in the minds of many. They're sort of antithetical actually, and putting them together is a bit like setting up a lunch date between Zac Efron and Sylvester Stallone: it'd just be... weird. Take a gander at Etsy merchant ...

Bottle Opener Ring

Bottle Opener Ring

It's a well documented fact on Cool Material that - much like boobs - adding a bottle opener to anything instantly makes it better. Rings and weapons are no different. A ring that happens to double as brass knuckles and a beer opener is the closest thing to perfection that man ha...

Digby & Iona 2x4 Ring

Digby & Iona 2x4 Ring

2x4s are the most versatile cut of wood known to man - framing walls, building TV stands (we all got creative in college), and in dire circumstance, zombie bludgeon. The 2x4 Ring from Digby & Iona isn't something your going to find at Home Depot, but it's not going to give yo...
