I would make my own like he said, but you can also try the Buy/Sell/Trade forum. I'm sure there's some people who have put engraved jewels on their Halo boxes and have the black ones to sell.

I personally don't think they'll look as good as a painted stock jewel, but it's hard to tell since they don't have any actual pictures. They're just made by some third party company, so they won't look exactly like the xbox one.

They're not domed like the stock jewel, and they have the company name printed in small letters at the bottom. It's got a piece of foam tape on the back for mounting.

I ended up clearing and painting a stock jewel black, so incidentally, I have the gameconsoleskins jewel available for sale if someone wants one.

Ugh, I posted that from work. I just got home, dug out the jewel, and had forgotten how ugly it was.

The edges are sharp, the font is wrong, and the silver lettering is patterned, not solid.

I tried to capture the "non-domeness" of the jewel.

It might look fine from a distance. rolleyes.gif

yeah just sand yours nice and clear then cover the front with masking tape then repaint the back black. i've done a black one and a white and they both look so nice. they look like they came stock that way.
