Item of the Day

So you weren’t among the 46 on Team USA who earned a gold medal in the just-ended London Olympics? Or one of the 29 silver medalists? Or even the 29 bronze medalists?

No need to fret, the folks at Tokyobay invite you to be part of the Tokyobay Athletic Club, a new collection of pendants and key clips based upon authentic pre-World War II sports medals.

Dory Isaacs, the company’s designer, found the original medals in Great Britain and recast them with pewter and brass finishes which really made the relief imagery of cyclists, swimmers, boxers, bowlers, etc. stand out. Each medallion is available on a choice of black leather cord, silver or brass plated chain mixed with Japanese “obi” woven cord (for that East-meet-West aesthetic so typical of Tokyobay).

Wear them singly, or layered with one of Tokyobay’s Argent line of watch fob necklaces. Or wear all of them at once a la Michael Phelps-style for a real championship statement.

Retails: $55 to $65; Call: 415-808-4880;
