Whilst I am not normally a fan of male jewellery, certain pieces, executed subtly, can produce a very striking effect. The sleek, natural design of Maison Martin Margiela’s Casting Brass Ring allows for just this.
Based loosely around a signet ring, the rough-hewn style transports this piece away from the heirs and graces of men’s dynastic jewellery and into the realms of fashion. Inspired by the globetrotting of Maison Martin Margiela’s design team and made from hammered brass, this ring pushes a rustic aesthetic not seen for a number of years, with menswear having taken a turn towards the prim and preppy of late.
However, do not fear the scorn of your sartorially sophisticated peers for looking like you hang on to your jewellery from 2006. Wear it alongside, if anything, deliberately poised outfits in order to create a contrast between the natural, beaten feel of Maison Martin Margeiela’s handiwork and your own chic and refined style (developed with the help of FashionBeans, of course).
While recommending outfits for men’s jewellery seems largely ridiculous due to the regular wearability of it, pairing this ring with burgundy tones would complement the dark brass colour particularly well. Otherwise, keep outfits minimalistic and sophisticated by pairing the ring with monochrome tailoring, creating timeless looks that ooze masculinity.
