Ring inspiration – Tattoo culture
We take inspiration from all sort of likes, dislikes, trends, fashion, tv and whats happening on the catwalks of London, Paris and New York when developing our ranges of jewellery for men. There is no doubt one of the strong trends this year is tattoo culture and the art of Sailor Jerry. This Anchor with Scroll ring by Metal Couture is a perfect example.
Many people seem to be Breaking Bad fans (although I’ve never watched it myself) but why not celebrate the acclaimed series with this BAD oxidised sterling silver ring by Studio Lux. Just to add some intrigue into the mix it also includes the word GOOD on the opposite side of the ring.
The Evil Eye signet ring in sterling silver by Ant Hat can mean many things in different cultures. It’s a curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware.
Whatever way you look at it we thinks its a cool looking signet ring.
Roll pressed Closed Textured wedding rings in various golds by Melanie Ihnen. The texture is ‘pressed’ onto the metal by rolling the textured place and gold through a rolling mill.
When photographing behind the scenes on how silver and gold jewellery is made you get really cool shots like this one by Albert Tse. It shows his gas torch heating the precious metal to turn it into a liquid so he can cast the desired piece of hand forged jewellery.
Silver with gold highlights
When people think of rings they often think of a ring being made from either silver or gold. That is not always the case as some jewellers, like the talented Gavin Macsporran, makes rings from silver (polished or oxidised) with a gold highlight. This stack of rings are a great example of what is possible.
Lost Wax Wedding Rings
We’re pretty pleased with the way that out handcrafted jewellery is wrapped when purchased in-store or online. Each of our vintage books has a hole cut out of the middle which allows us to hide your cufflinks, wedding ring, signet ring, pendant, tie bar or lapel pin in it. It’s become our calling card.
