While bedecking yourself in gold ornaments is a great way to display your value, it significantly increases your chances of being melted down and recast as a tooth filling. Cast yourself in stronger, less scrap-able precious metals with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of custom, handcrafted steel and titanium adornments from Spexton’s downtown location.
Named one of America's Coolest Stores in 2009 by INSTORE magazine, Spexton sculpts its customized, contemporary steel and titanium creations by hand, catering to the imaginations of local customers and notable celebrity clientele. Guests to the cozy, upscale jewelry lounge can peruse a varied selection of hand-hammered and hand-polished baubles made for men and women, or sit down with owners Greg Shelton and Nate McPherson to design a one-of-a-kind, sleek and sturdy treasure before smelting it in the parking lot. Don a dashing brushed Koenig ring ($100), anchor necks with a custom initial tag ($45), and encircle wrists in stylish sheen with a diamond bangle ($350). Since the majority of Spexton's durable designs are made to order, customers should allow up to 10 days, or the length of one space nap, for the crafting of each timeless piece.
