I am no stranger to making jewelry for men. My work was always meant to be worn by all. Myself, a fan of men's garments, I always tried to fill in the fashion gap between genders. Let's be honest, only recently fashion designers started paying attention to "masculine" fashion and creative, innovative, fashion conscious men or men with a strong sense of style do not have to suffer for a lack of wardrobe and accessory choice anymore.
In my experience, men tend to choose less embellished jewelry, pieces that are perceived as simple and understated. By creating men's engagement ring* collection, I portrayed gold and precious stones in a masculine way. The designs (except the ring I custom made for Paul) are focused on the metal itself, its texture, luster, strength, and durability. The gemstones are incorporated to transform a particular ring into a celebratory piece, but without being overly flashy. Rings in this collection are designed and meant to be worn every day, as a powerful representation of commitment and love.
Very truly yours,
* "Men's engagement rings" definition should not be construed narrowly, of course. The rings are made with same-sex couples, straight guys and anyone with a "masculine" style sensibility in mind.
