A Month of Mick – A study in black and white. (#2) – ‘The Bling’

For our second instalment on “A month of Mick” we are taking a look at Mick’s jewelry. The necklace and the ring he is always wearing. The only times he is without them, are when he is naked in his freezer or shirtless around the house.

For me it creates a very unique identity and feeling around Mick. ♥♥♥

During the series we never get answers about why he wears them and what significance they have in his life. Were there any discussions about it in the old days, when the series was first broadcast? What was the feeling about it?

I had never seen a group of people fall so deeply in love with a character I’d been a part of.

  5. The symbols of Mick’s ring and Pendent is the Symbol of the Royal House of France from which Coraline descends and Mick now is part of that Bloodline. It is the FLEUR DE LIS.

    • Thank you P
      It looks like 4 of them(Fleur de lis’s) forming a cross like “flower”
      Why would Mick chose or wear it, if he did not know the symbolism behind it before Epi 12? Was it just something Coraline would have given him. Was he wearing it as some sort of penance for “killing” her?

        Well, another back story we’ll never know (FU CBS!). Perhaps it was a gift from her, perhaps not. But he saw the fleur-de-lis on her should the night they met–when he unzipped her dress so she (they?) could “get wet” in the pool.

    Mick’s jewelry was always often discussed and adored, especially his ring. Some fans even bought a replica. I remember reading *somewhere* that Alex picked it out himself and had to fight for it. Unless I dreamed that up but I don’t think so lol. 😉

              Alex would NOT be pleased. Much as he loved playing Mick he has SO moved on>The first time we had SOTB one of our girls handed him her DVD of MOONLIGHT for him to sign .He did of course {SWEETHEART} but looked a bit suprised and said “You are here to support my NEW show aren’t you?”

                I enjoyed the jewels for Mick. They were very gothic, very vamp, very Mick. And they called attention to his neck, his chest, and his hands. All lovely parts we would NEVER have noticed without the bling hanging off em, huh? 😉 Bwahahahaha!

                • I remember the fabulous “VAMPED OUT” picture you got back from Alex. You work VERY hard for DONATE LIFE Emerald and you are an Aussie. There is NO Way Alex would have refused you. However he did say the quote to my friend Kim at SOTB. he has also said That he will never play another Vampire. AND WHY ON EARTH SHOULD HE. HE HAS ALREADY PLAYED THE SEXIEST HANDSOMEST VAMPIRE EVER The one we all love so much MICK ST JOHN, A vampire with a heart, soul and conscience

                    Hi. Slightly off subject, but I’m too curious. So what did he smell like at SOTB? Cigars? Suntan lotion? Cologne?

                  • Oh, of course, not saying he didn’t say that to your friend at SOTB, although I’m sure he was saying it in his usual dry wit Aussie way 🙂 And I totally agree, there is only one Mick, I wouldn’t want to see Alex take on a Vampire role just for the sake of it, he’s done that character and now he’s taken on different challenges in his acting career. I don’t even get all that excited when I hear former Moonlight cast members are going to be guest starring on H50, because I think ‘but it’s not like they’ll be the same characters they were back then’. I know a lot of people wanted Sophia Myles or Jason Dohring to guest star on the show, but they’d be playing different characters, not like it’d suddenly be Mick and Beth or Mick and Josef take a trip to Hawaii. LOL

              • I think it is also the differences between men and women. (the whole Venus & Mars thing 😀 ) For us women everything is intertwined. To us Alex is Jack, Steve, Mick, Kevin Stan etc. all at once. For him, he is Steve now, busy promoting Steve and SOTB is about H5-0 and Steve.

          I also have a ‘Mick ring’. It was actually how I discovered Alex. Where I live, they were showing promo’s for ML back in 2008/2009, and I saw the ring and fell in love with it. My hubby suprised me with the ring at Christmas. It was much later that a friend (he’s gay, go figure!) said; Nice ring, but have you seen the man attached to it?? LOL!

  9. First pic is from epi 1 and next two are from epi 4 “Fever” (my personal fave) but it is killing me that I can’t place the last one. Is it from “Fleur de Lis?” He isn’t wet? I can’t say the same for my panties! 😛 I thought I have watched every epi enough times. Anyway, these are such lovely choices for this post! The biting pic gives me chills. Even though she is giving him life saving blood, the romantic connection between them is so evident. He looks at her when she says “I’m not leaving…you’re dying!” almost as if he is surprised that she cares so much for him. Then the sniffing as he holds her arm, just before he bites, is Freakin Hot! I didn’t like it when he vamped all that much, but in this scene, I was weirdly aroused.

  10. What pommienana said makes sense, but yeah, the question still remains of why he would wear it. You’d think he wouldn’t want a reminder of everything Coraline put him through. Yeah, I could see it as some kind of penance like FOYeur said.

    Has anyone ever asked Trevor about any of this since he was involved in the show, even though it wasn’t in the book? Emerald, how about you? Now I want to go pick his brain–and I might. If I remember to, that is. 🙂

    • Coraline would of course have told him all about her Royal Blood{ Pricess of France Sister to King Louis} and in the time of the Monarchies “Courtesan” actually did mean A lady of the Court “COURTIER being the masculine version. It was only much much later that the word became associated with the usually extremely beautiful :Kept ladies and Misstress ‘es of Kings, Princes and very very wealthy man in the late 1800,s to the early 20th Century that it became synonamous with a VERY high class and EXPENSIVE “Lady of the evening ” Sorry for the History lesson but when it comes to the European monarchies and History there is not very much that i have not studied.

              Mick’s ring and necklace those were pieces Alex picked out to inform his character. We sort of thought we might explore the history of the items down the line, but never really came up with anything specific…

    thank you for having a whole month to mick. The role I love alex best at ( next to steve) I never notice the background I was to busy under the spell of mick. Love the black and white pics, and like alex comment. Wow I hope me mean that comment as a good thing because I could say the same for steve. I also think we loved him because I don’t care what anybody says, he was the first vampire back on tv in a long time.

    I know this is supposed to be about the jewellery…it is interesting to read about…but I cannot focus on anything else except those GORGEOUS, LONG, WET EYELASHES…and that DELICIOUS, SEXY CHEST AND ABS!!!

    How I’d LOVE to kiss those beautiful lashes over and over and over again. I’d LOVE even more to use my tongue and my mouth on his nipple…and fingers…and belly button…and…well…you know….other things that are not pictured here…but are very vivid in my mind.

    HOLY HANNAH! 😯 I missed a day, and I come back and WHAMO, that ring, that Chest!! *drools*
    When I first watched, okay, second time, I Google Mick St. John ring and it came up with a bunch of places, I have a link on Ebay Canada for 4 of them, one with a red stone in it (which I am not interested) but the others are nice, going for $165.00 Canadian from Hong Kong.
    I was a Calgary Comic and Expo a couple of months ago, and saw a Lord of the Rings “Aragon” ring going for $700.00. So I think $165.00 is a deal!
    During the Google I found this also, http://moonlightfan.blogspot.ca/2008/02/moonlight-detective-talks-with-alex.html
    It’s an article about AlexO talking about Moonlight and he tells a story about the ring.
