shine
 n.— «They dressed in hip-hop “gangsta” style, and the Rosarios took pride in flashing jewelry (or “shine” as they called it).…Angel Rosario told his wife he’d told one member to sell his “shines” to help raise money for his wife’s bail. “Baby, when I met you I had no shine so if I have to lose all my shines just to see you one last time baby I will do it because I love you so much baby,” Angel wrote.» —“Group struggles to stay united” by Andrew Wolfe Nashua Telegraph (N.H.) Oct. 19, 2005.
