|William Llewellyn Griffiths.|
Everyone's favourite Melbourne man, Colin, has a look at the AMAZING rings of William Llewellyn Griffiths.
Ring-a-ding-ding. Men's rings. One of the hardest things for a man to pull off but also one of the most rewarding, if done well.
Johnny Depp recently caused quite a stir when he was gadding around town with his new diamond engagement ring. There was a lot of internet heat about his feminine style ring however we all know Johnny Depp can do no wrong. In the picture below we see the interesting juxtaposition, that is actually quite fetching.

William Llewellyn Griffiths (prodigious name, prodigious jeweller) owner and designer in chief is truly exceptional and highly unique in his designs and I wholeheartedly commend his store to you. Which is situated on Gertrude street, in good old Fitzroy (if you pop buy look out for his in store cat!). Just look at this hourglass ring I have my eye on.
|Like sand through an hourglass, so are the days of our lives.|
And the great thing is that many of his rings are stackable so you can mix and match...
He also has a great online catalogue for all the international playboys out there and an extensive range of jewellery for discerning female as well as male.
Coming back to male engagement rings. What would I like best? Something vintage of course! Being a man of pretensions to grandeur and a recherche old world charm. And I think the Gimmal ring is perhaps the best of these. This style of ring was most popular during the enlightenment. This style of ring is more of a series of rings that overlap. They evolved to being two hands covering a heart, being very similar to a the Irish Claddagh ring.
