Shakedown Jewelry Founder Kevin Begola The Story of Shakedown Jewelry:

The shakedown: in motorsports it's the time when you learn what the capabilities of a new engine really are. It's the trial that leads to some of the best innovations and is the place where time-tested quality is born.

Shakedown Jewelry is a family owned and operated company with its roots in the muscle car culture of eastern Michigan. Founded by lifelong Detroit area native Kevin Begola, Shakedown Jewelry specializes in men's Carbon Fiber Rings, Tire Tread Rings, Black Zirconium Carbon Fiber Rings, and inventive alternative designs inspired by the streets of the Motor City.

Kevin, who grew up around the car business, got his start in the jewelry industry back in 2005 while shopping for a wedding ring. Intrigued by the possibilities of different materials like titanium, carbon fiber, and black zirconium, Kevin used his natural eye for quality and started selling a selection of cutting edge men's rings. Influenced by his love of motorsports, Kevin began working on his own designs and soon found himself at the forefront of the most in-your-face jewelry being offered anywhere. Six years later, Kevin forged Shakedown Jewelry from a vision of bringing his fans the loudest, fastest, and hardest hitting rings on the market. True to our heritage, our company is located just outside of Detroit and is committed to selling only the coolest stuff that's meant to shake up your lifestyle. If it's not going to generate a buzz with our fanbase, we're not going to carry it.
We have the same passion for value that we have for super-charged engines and unique styles, which is why every ring we offer has been hand picked by Kevin for its perfect blend of quality, affordability, and a look that captures the energy of Detroit Rock City. These are styles that no one else has; designed by gearheads for gearheads.

We take a hands-on approach to customer service because our customers are the people that let us do what we love. We want to deal with you one-on-one, and if you have a question, we'll get you an answer.
