Pikey/Chav inspired Jewels

When I was at school (and I was a chav!) Sovereign/signet rings were all the rage for girls (and those dealing in scrap-metal!!), and you pretty much needed to have one whether it was real gold or not.

For those not familiar, wikipedia can break it down!

"A sovereign ring is a ring which typically has a gold sovereign as a primary decorative feature, with the obverse face as the visible detail. The coin may be either genuine or replica tender, and may be either a sovereign or half sovereign. In theUnited Kingdom it is also common to use custom coinage bearing such motifs as the 'Three Lions', or other similar imagery as Saint George, or a Welsh Dragon."

I am gonna have a re-visit to some Pikey-ish/chav-ish inspired jewellery because yesterday in Primark I bought these beauties!!

They took my back to them School Daze, and so if Primark are on it, everyone will be!
