I'm curious if some folks do this.

Do many folks here go with domains like xyzcompany-jewelry.com and things like that for their different sites? Is this good, bad, or indifferent as far as SE's go?

Or do people think it's better to use subdomains like jewelry.xyzcompany.com?

It would definitely be easier to do than thinking up clever .com names that aren't already taken and it seems like it would be a great way to brand your company name if that's what your goal is.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
