Over the last four months, Brave Ads users may have seen ads for Access79, a try-before-you-buy luxury jewelry service that began advertising on the platform in September.

While advertising with Brave, Access79 has been collaborating with our team on two special commemorative wearables for our Community: our galvanizers, explorers, and believers. The BAT Community played an essential role in the product development process, providing feedback through a series of polls from our @BAT_Community Twitter account during the various stages of production.

Today, we are pleased to announce that the demi-fine Limited Edition BAT Signet Ring and the Limited Edition BAT Dog Tag necklace are now available for preorder on Access79’s website!

Visit Access79’s website and reserve your BAT Signet Ring and BAT Dog Tag necklace today: https://access79.com/brave-collaboration
