Increasingly popular in men’s fashion, rings are often an overlooked accessory.
But with these three Australian jewellery brands, you won’t be easily overlooked.
There has been a recent emergence of ring makers in Australia, and these brands are producing quality items that deliver a range of different aesthetics. Here are our three favourite Australian independent brands to shop men’s rings right now.
Sue The Boy
Based in Byron Bay, Sue the boy are producing handmade rings in silver and gold that differ from the normal perception of what rings look like. With a wide range of rings from the Tender, a 9k solid yellow gold ring engraved with currency symbols from all around the world to the Snake Charmer, a traditional .925 Sterling Silver signet ring with a snake engraved onto the face. Sue the boys’ rings have a very handmade and authentic look to them, making them a very appealing ring – and well worth adding to your Instagram feed.
Crooked Howlet Designs
Our tip is to look out for their monthly collections. Each month, they create two custom signets: one simple, silver square faced signet with the birthstone of the month, and one designed by Han Shinko, a European tattoo artist. These rings are gorgeous and give people the opportunity to own an exclusive piece based on their birth month (or even if they just like the ring!).
Black De Ville
For a brand pushing the boundaries and creating rings that you’ll never have seen before, we suggest you keep your eye out for Sydney-based Black De Ville. The brand prides itself on brutalist style and creating pieces that are as obscure as possible, whilst still being wearable. Contemporary is a word that describes a lot of the products produced by Black De Ville as these rings are like no other brand and very much of their own style.
These rings are for those who want to move away from the traditional boundaries that often restrains mens jewellery and wear a unique piece of androgynous fashion.
