If a man can only choose one jewelry, except for the watch, he can do without a bracelet, without a necklace, but not without a ring. Because the position is the most conspicuous, there are many concave shapes, and it can follow the hand movement to appear in the sight of others in various ways.
A ring can save the rustic outfit, today I will talk about the style and wearing of the ring.
In fact, it does not matter which finger it wears, it is nothing more than a tie. Modern people rarely care about this, and the most important thing is to wear good looks and taste. But before you study how to wear it, figure out your style.
The most British gentlemanly style should probably be wearing a seal ring on the little finger. From the European upper class, aristocracy, and the godfathers of Italian gangsters from the last century, they all liked to wear the seal tail ring, which was a symbol of status and power.
If made with expensive and rare jewelry, there are ruby, amethyst, garnet, bloodstone, chalcedony, etc., representing a person’s noble wealth. If it is made of gold, platinum, etc., although the material is not expensive enough, but the badge on it is not available to everyone, it represents a unique status.
Signet Rings, the word Signet comes from the Latin Signum, meaning symbol. The earliest dates back to the Mesopotamian era in 3500 BC. People made a cylindrical seal into a pendant and hung it around the neck, which can be rolled to form a pattern when used to confirm the authenticity of the document.
In ancient Egypt, pharaohs made seals into rings to show their status. In biblical stories, seals symbolize identity and trust.
One tells the story of a prodigal son who returned home in embarrassment after a prodigal father forgave him and gave his son a badge ring symbolizing glory and status. One is that Jesus said to the faithful Zerubbabel around him, “I will reuse you and make you my badge ring, for I have chosen you.” ”
These two stories further establish the importance of the seal ring in the two polar worlds of high society and gangster society.
From the Middle Ages, almost all nobles made rings engraved with the family coat of arms or coat of arms as a family symbol and passed them down from generation to generation. In addition to highlighting the identity and power of the family, it can also be used to seal the opening of the envelope, killing two birds with one stone.
Prince Charles, for example, has been wearing a seal tail ring on his left hand. Built by Welsh Gold, it has a history of 175 years.
Prince Philip, who had just died, also said that according to Western tradition, the left hand showed luck from God, and it was convenient for the right hand to rotate and seal, so their rings were usually worn on the left hand.
In addition to the royal family and aristocracy, some political and business celebrities also like it. Churchill, for example, but he liked to wear the ring on his right hand.
As for why the gangsters like Dai? In addition to status, another reason is to convey trust or indicate affiliation.
This is especially true in the movie “The Irishman”. With the phrase “There are only three fingers in this world who can wear this ring, and only one is Irish”, Philadelphia gang boss Russell gave Frank one of three rings that symbolized trust between partners and represented the power of the mafia family.
The boss of “The Godfather”, Al Pacino, also wears a seal ring on his little finger.
Whether they are celebrities and magnates, or gangsters, they are all suit-wearers. Now, members of some of the old gentlemen’s clubs in Britain generally have their own coat of arms rings. If you are not a nobleman, you can print the monogram of your name on it.
Stamp rings with suits are the most British gentlemanly style of dressing. If it echoes the watch on your wrist, it will be even more disjointed.
After talking about suit culture, let’s take a look at retro culture. Generally speaking, men who like retro style can basically be divided into Japanese and American, and these two styles determine the style of silver jewelry they wear.
Japanese style, more pursuit of simplicity but not simple. Do not seek the most, but seek the best and the most classic. A delicate feather, eagle, and skull ring can highlight the temperament.
If you wear one, you don’t have a problem with which finger you wear it, except for the thumb. If it is not on the other fingers, never wear it on the thumb. If you really want to wear it, you can choose one middle finger and one thumb.
If you wear two, you can wear one on each hand, but it is best to wear it on different fingers. For example, the index finger of the left hand and the middle finger of the right hand; The law of the middle finger of the left hand and the ring finger of the right hand.
Or wear it on the same hand, next to each other or one finger apart.
Of course, it can also be stacked on the same finger, such a wearing method, in addition to looking good, also has a function, that is, if one of the rings does not fit and is easy to fall off, you can use the other to jam it to prevent it from falling off.
However, if you have two rings on top of each finger, it is best to have three or four rings on the entire hand. If not, it seems too abrupt and thin.
As for the American style, in fact, the wearing method is roughly the same as the Japanese style. If I had to say a little different, Americans may like to wear it in more quantities. Wear a few, how to wear it, just master the balance.
The early American pilots liked to wear the whole hand, but they were not for good looks, but to replace the finger tiger banned by the police at that time, so that the fist force was stronger.
The big ring they wear is not our usual American ring, but very large, very rough, can not be said to be fine, can only be said to be good-looking metal products. These rings, called “Mexican biker rings,” are usually made of silver and copper, because at the end of the Mexican Revolution, coins became worthless and were turned into rings. Pine stone was also popular for a time. Graphic elements include Indian heads, Aztec warriors, ship anchors, horseshoes, skeletons, etc.
There is also a kind of layering bias towards fashion and fashion style. For example, Rockstars and Rappers in North America often wear ten fingers. Some designers, like Galeries Lafayette Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, can’t wait to wear dozens.
In general, it is what clothes to wear with what ring. Wear a little Japanese retro, choose some Japanese silver jewelry brands, such as Stop Light, goro’s, etc., biased towards Indian style. Wear American retro, choose American silver jewelry brands, such as Chrome Hearts, Gaboratory, etc., biased towards Harley-style rough style. Of course, this is also a bit of a generalization. There are also American brands that do Indian style, or a blend of both. In short, the style corresponds to the above.
As for the brand, I have introduced a lot of BOJ before. Today, we will introduce some European and American silverware brands.
Hoorsenbuhs is an emerging brand from the United States, founded in 2015 by fashion photographer Robert G. Keith.
Although the brand is young, it is popular and sought after by many celebrities. For example, David Beckham, Fei Dong. The brand’s ateliers are in California, and all silverware is handmade by artisans. The most famous is the horseshoe design, which has become the brand’s identity.
Gaboratory, known by many as the originator of silver jewelry and the king of silver jewelry, is considered by many players to be a truly collectible legendary brand. Founded in 1988 by the owner Gabor Nagy, it has launched many classic styles, in addition to skulls and crowns, there are many animal elements, such as bulldogs, lion’s heads, leopard heads, etc.
Gaboratory’s design and craftsmanship have always been sought after in the European, American and Japanese silver jewellery industry because of the brand’s unique gray-black formula and indescribable roughness. It seems careless, but it is actually deliberate, and the style is retro enough.
Gaboratory also influenced many later well-known brands, all founded after apprenticeship, the most representative and well-known are Chrome Hearts and Bill Wall Leather.
