Jewelry is just another way to prove how comfortable you are with your masculinity. That and how strong your sartorial prowess is – ideally, both at the same time. We’ve already written up a Buyer’s Guide on 10 Leather Bracelets, so we thought we’d follow it up with a guide of the best trinkets available now to grace your digits. After a Buyer’s Guide focusing purely on fine silver rings and necklaces, we wanted to provide you with a little more variety, it being the spice of life and all. So here we have a list of 10 rings from a gothic university ring to one made from the hardened leather soles of shoes.
