The Humble Mens Ring

Far from just an indicator that you’re off the market, rings can be mixed and matched to suit a series of different spring/summer get-ups. While plain gold, rose gold and silver cuffs work well, rings in the same metals tend to look too much like wedding bands. Instead, try opting for designs cast from oxidised silver, brushed brass and zinc, or go for styles in gold, rose gold and silver that are engraved, feature cut-out/lattice effects or have plaited inserts so as to shake off the matrimonial connotations. Layer up, and eclectically, for a casual, rock-inflected look with a bohemian edge, or stick to one or two sleek pieces (silver and matte black finishes work well) for combining with tailoring and spring/summer evening attire.
