Jewellery is a great way to elevate your outfit, to add a little bit of personality and really distinguish it from others. This said, it’s easy to go over the top with bling, so take it step by step and get comfortable with what works for your look. We’re starting with rings; easily visible all the time, rings need to be done right. There’s a lot to consider when buying a ring: what colour? Black rings, gold rings, silver rings? What material? Gold, ruthenium? There are so many questions, so we’ve rounded up three of our favourite jewellery brands who specialise in gold and silver men’s rings, and if you like that, then check them out for wider ranges of men’s jewellery including bracelets, necklaces and cufflinks.
Miansai specialises in understated men’s jewellery. Founder Michael Saiger gains inspiration from his own life: childhood memories of adventures on New England beaches, New York’s energy, even things found in retro shops. Miansai is an ideal place to begin for first time jewellery buyers thanks to its reserved aesthetic, high quality and low price point. Our recommended ring from the current collection is the Miansai 3MM Matte Silver Ring.
When husband and wife duo, Alice and Ed Walsh, were unable to find the right cufflinks for their wedding, they drew up Alice Made This. The brand specialises in clean, geometrically and architecturally-inspired men's jewellery. With such an understated aesthetic, Alice Made This is a perfect place to start if you're new to jewellery. We suggest going for the Alice Made This Silver Ring P4 Bancroft Polished Silver Ring.
Phira only designs unisex jewellery, which – when you consider the different ways men and women wear their jewellery – is quite a feat. All jewellery is designed and handmade in London. More ‘out-there’ than Miansai or Alex Orso, we think Phira specialise in stones. That’s why we recommend the Phira London Green Bloodstone Gold Jamestown Ring, each deep green stone is cut specifically for a ring, so each ring is unique and has personality. We love the contrast between 18k gold plating and green bloodstone.
