Sharp Holiday Gift Idea: Styx Jewelry!


“Just in time for
shopping season!” Don’t laugh guys – it’ll guarantee you some of that fine MILF
action when the band comes to town. Plus, we’re talking collectors’ items. The
best part, however, is scouring the web to see which otherwise sentient and
sensible music sites are posting this news without any sense of irony… like this one, and this one, and this one. Notice how all of them are published verbatim from the original marketing pitch.

We get press releases at BLURT, and then we get press releases. This one not only speaks
for itself, but it just screams from the page (computer screen), “Circulate me!”


STYX — Tommy
Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd
Sucherman – have teamed up with jewelry designer Diana Warner (
to create the “Diana Warner for Styx” jewelry collection, which was made
available exclusively on the band’s official website (
on November 11, just in time for holiday shopping. 


Each piece
is hand-made in Diana Warner’s New
York City studio, with prices ranging from
$55-$200.  The first items available are eight dog tag necklaces made of
30 inch chains of gunmetal, antique gold or antique silver plate over
brass.  The charms are made of pewter and rose gold, gunmetal, antique
gold or antique silver.  They’ll also be selling guitar pick earrings
available in 4 finishes:  gunmetal, rose gold, antique gold and antique
silver, as well as antique gold and silver charms with one of the band’s
well-recognized lyrics, “Come Sail Away With Me.” 


This is
only the first part of the “Diana Warner for Styx”
collection.  Multiple styles of limited edition charms will be created in
2012, which will be sold in a small number and will be considered collector’s items.  A full line of
“Diana Warner for Styx” jewelry will be made
available in 2012.  This is the first collection Diana has designed for a
band and collaborated on this project with singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw’s wife,
Jeanne Shaw.


“The second
we saw Diana’s pieces, we knew we wanted to work with her,” says Jeanne. 
“We’re so thrilled to be able to offer something very special to STYX’s fans that’s worlds different than anything we’ve
done before.  We hope they love the collection as much as we do.”
