When it comes to accessorising any outfit, guys have the easy and safe option of wearing a watch. But anyone can wear one of those. In order to take your style credentials up another notch – and to prove to people you really do know a thing or two about fashion and style – you’ll want to consider adding a ring (or even a few rings if you’re feeling adventurous) to finish off your outfit.
Rings, like any other type of jewellery, come in various styles, such as signet, wedding and even rings for your pinky (little) finger. Naturally, they come in various colours and materials too. The most common you’ll find will be made from either silver or gold, but some high-end brands opt for other precious metals such as white, rose or yellow gold, and even platinum. For us, we’re more fans of silver rings – we don’t fancy looking like a New York City diamond dealer – but there are certain situations when adding a splash of gold will elevate your style game.
Choosing which finger to wear a ring on can be as arduous a task as deciding where to get a tattoo. Some people will tell you there are a certain set of rules to follow when it comes to ring-wearing: your ring finger should be reserved solely for a wedding ring, for example. And signet rings are traditionally worn on the little finger. Pish to rules though, simply measure up your fingers, try a few on and go for whichever finger feels comfortable.
As with any other section within the fashion industry, there are brands you want to know and those you want to avoid. Fortunately for you, we’ve filtered out the wheat from the chaff to provide a definitive list of the coolest men’s ring brands that will have you flashing your fingers.
