Thanks bro - I’m hoping the roundels fit on the mini buddy?

Imagining this out in my head and as you mentioned, you’ll definitely need a bail on the quarter. Any competent jeweler can do it easily and it shouldnt be too expensive. Otherwise it will sit perpendicularly to the BLB and be uncomfortable.

Just my opinion but I like the way the two pieces look on the ball chain, I’d maybe just sub it out for a #3 and try that first. The only problem I see with the pendants and 3 rondels is scale. I think the look might be off with the Rondels which are somewhat chunky combined with a more traditionally sized pendant. I’ve never owned a mini BLB so I cant comment how secure they would be with two pieces that have a lot of sentimental value.

Have you thought about a #3 with a clip like the PL Clip to hold your bailed medals and rondels stacked around the clip? Would be secure and at least TO ME better scaled.




My PL Clip is one of the smaller ones but I imagine a larger model would fit the bill really well. Also the Clip 7 or Big Eye would be great. I want the latter next. It’s so damn beautiful!

Thanks for sharing!! You are probably right.. I’m thinking I’ll just get the pieces I want, and the. Figure out the situation that works.

Is your Ball chain a #3 or a #10?

I really would like to add the sun glass loop to my collection, but would prefer to do so with a thin curb chain in the future as I feel the two work really well together.

Love that clip Anesthetist, and you are right, it would definitely be more secure!

Thanks for the input @Cutlasshound and @Anesthetist - I skipped the mini-buddy for the time being, but got the #3 with a mini roundel to "separate" my Pope Pius pendant and Birth year Quarter and keep a similar aesthetic as I have now.

But for good measure, I also grabbed some other GAH I had been eyeing, and since @Giles said the #10 ball chain is really what I need for the sunglass holder (On the holiday wish list!), I did snag the bracelet to give it a shot, and a full size roundel to spice that up.

Excited, as this will be my first GAH gear outside of my 3 year old brass BLB. I really go appreciate everyone's ideas and experiences!

Apologies I did not send pic old chap!

The glasses holder is killer. Have seen and handled Giles’ one on the #10 ball chain and it is a lovely bit of kit. So much so that I don’t even wear fucking glasses and I have been close to getting one on a number of occasions!

@Cutlasshound - bro, all good!

G and I chatted, and a bit later down the road, I'll mimic his kit, as I agree it's perfection!

I think I already know the answer to this question, but does the mini BLB fit onto a #10 ball chain? Or only the #3?
