When they were just a couple of lads, Keef and Mick probably had no idea what a commercial juggernaut The Rolling Stones would become. Since forming in 1962, there have been all manner of ways to cash in on the band, be it the conventional t-shirt or the somewhat unconventional "promo blanket."
But wait! There's more! This July, in honor of the band's 50th anniversary and subsequent Tokyo gala, Universal Music (the Stones' label) will be releasing a book of never-before-seen photographs and a commemorative class ring, which you can see up above. And this isn't just any ring: it's as silver as Charlie Watts' hair, inset with onyx stone (which should be Mick's nickname nowadays). Super-fans can purchase the ring via Universal Music Japan, where it retails for ¥100,000, or $1,260. Super-duper fans are still holding out for the 100th anniversary Rolling Stones Diamond ™.
