Hi Keefkid! This is very cool stuff and fine craftsmanship. There are a few I like, but one in particular. The skull mask bracelet only I'd like to have him do something similar, a little smaller and a little more feminine. I'm going to commission him to do just that for me. I know someone who would die over this stuff. Thanks.

Hi Keefkid,

Yeah, Tony is a friend of mine, I met through Blondie last tour. He made me a one of a kind skull ring this tour. I hope to get a picture of it up on my web page and on my space soon. I've been advertising his jewelry for him since Nov. on my page. He makes some very unique and cool stuff.

I don't recall a skull ring being sold during Voodoo Lounge (but perhaps there was one), but they did sell an exact replica of Keith's ring during Bridges to Babylon. It came in a men's and smaller women's version and sold out immediately. They never offered it officially again to my knowledge. Several jewelers around the world have taken that ring that was sold in '97 and made replicas of it. Tonycreed.com does not make exact replicas of Keith's stuff, he makes his own creative skull stuff and customizes it for his clients. I finally got a photo taken of the ring he made me this tour:

Hi,

do you know a jeweler that makes exact copies of keiths?

I got several skull rings, but no exact copy.

Thanks

The guy who's jeweler used to make exact replicas no longer does so, he was a guy in the Netherlands. There is another guy from the Netherlands on Ebay that advertises replicas and also sells the handcuff bracelet replica, but I don't know anything about him, so buy at your own risk.



The other place that used to sell replicas of both was in Japan-a Stones store called Gimme Shelter, which is where I got my handcuff bracelet back in '97.

Hi i'm BettoStone from Italy. Why at official rolling stones web site store, they don't put a skull ring replica?

Bye bye.

I got one of the rings from RS.com during the Bridges to Babylon tour. I think they are sterling silver as there is a maker's mark inside. It looks almost like the one displayed in the picture above, although the teeth are not quite as good. It's now 9 years old and it has dulled a little, but I suspect some ring cleaning would cure that. It's an adjustable ring, with claws on the inside that you can make adjust to your finger size.

All in all a very nice ring!

Bluelena, I love your website! You are a true Stones fan and from what I understand a very nice woman. That is a killer ring you have there. Mine is just a similar replica, but cool still the same. LONG LIVE KEITH RICHARDS!

Ron091,

Yes, that is the one. I have the women's version and until Tony made me the one above it was the only ring I have worn. It is silver, so it had lasted well. True it is adjustable. I am surprised that for as many people who want them, and for as quickly as they told in '97 that RS.COM hasn't made them available.

Thanks to everyone who has visited my page.

I think the reason they don't put replicas of Keith's skull ring and handcuffs bracelet is because these two objects have a special menaing to him.
I wouldn't like people being able to buy replicas of something so dear to me just out of emulation of just because they are fans, no matter how devoted they may be.

NICELY written...these are icons of Keith...no point in trying to copy him...get your own identity...

Late 70s/early 80s.
Guess the skull ring is a present of Anita's. The endcuffs are a design of Keith's.
