We’re Giving Away a PDB Jewelry “Yeah Buddy” Double Finger Ring!
Just a few days ago, I gushed about the innovative spirit and quirky,smart, irresistible aesthetic of PDB Jewelry, noting how the acronym in the brand’s moniker is beyond spot-on (PDB stands for “pure dead brilliant,” a Scottish expression akin to “sicka than average”) . If you missed the post, make sure to check it out here (the London Bus Hoop Earrings alone are bound to make you drool a bit!). If you were lusting after the architectural, design-driven, I’m-a-boss pieces you saw in the story, you’ll be delighted to hear that we’ve joined forces with PDB Jewelry to bring you our biggest, raddest, most exciting giveaway this year!
One lucky Sicka Than Average reader will win the PDB Jewelry Chanja “Yeah Buddy” Double Finger Ring ($220 for 22k gold vermeil piece or $175 for sterling silver piece; both available at PDBjewelry.com). The double finger ring features a simple bar design stamped with the words “Yeah Buddy” in a font that’s reminiscent of typewritten letters, with the uppercase letters arranged so as to create a slightly imperfect alignment that gives the piece a sense of intrigue and an almost vintage-like quality. Nora Logan, the mastermind behind PDB Jewelry, says this figures among her favorite pieces since it was among the first she created and it was inspired by her friends . Though the “Yeah Buddy” phrase has become synonymous with Jersey Shore’s Pauly D , Logan designed this piece many years before the GTL-ers took over MTV. Besides, it’s an expression that’s been used by everyone from the late soul singer Lou Rawls to bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman, the characters on the Jason Lee-helmed sitcom My Name Is Earl, and rappers like Eminem (peep his track “Square Dance”), Dorrough, and OJ Da Juiceman (to name just a few). Bottom line: if you’re hanging with your girls and you’re excited about something, you’re bound to let out a roaring “Yeah Buddy” in excitement, making this piece a way to keep those memories fresh in your mind.
The PDB Jewelry Ring is available in either 22 Carat Gold Vermeil or 925 Sterling Silver, so please specify which you’d prefer per the instructions below. Also, it comes in sizes S, M, and L so make sure to also note your ring size.
