In case you are still wondering what the second most Googled denim brand in 2006 is up to, you'll be interested to know Rock & Republic is still using their branding power to sell...not pants. They've just released a new jewelry line, which includes the crown-shaped rings to the right: prepare yourselves for lots of R&R logos along with other edgy things like skulls and spikes. Like the Rock & Republic denim collection, R&R jewelry will be available exclusively at Kohl's. Check it out for nostalgia while you cry over your bedazzled bum of yore. [Kohl's]
