You may be taking your style cues from Harry Styles’ fistful of gemstones and signet rings, or perhaps it’s A$AP Rocky’s pearls and diamonds that have caught your eye - either way, rings are very much an accessory that every man should be adorning their fingers with right now.
Once packed with symbolism, whether it was a representation of power, a seal of personal identification, or even a protection against illnesses, they have since become a fashion choice that’s been adopted by everyone from Elvis, the king of bling, to Liberace, who gives us the ostentatious ring-spiration we’re all here for.
An easy to wear everyday accessory, there are countless designs to suit every taste - whether it’s a Swarovski cocktail design that gives Liberace’s crystal-encrusted piano ring a run for its money, or a timeless signet which is the perfect entry-level-ring, ready to slide on to the pinky of anyone out there whose fingers aren’t yet used to decoration.
Then there’s the age old question… are you a gold or silver kind of guy? Well, the decision is down to you. If you’re partial to the warm, nostalgic undertones of gold, then your jewellery box will be brimming with vintage 80s appeal. If you prefer the sparkling, iridescent appearance of silver, you can opt for rings that feature the added durability of palladium or the hypoallergenic properties of palladium. And don’t be scared to mix and match for an eclectic aesthetic.
So, it’s time to take a look at the best you can buy now that will have your hands sparkling in no time.
