As a 23-year-old male, I’m allowed to like rings, right? I mean not collect them, make them or even wear them, but surely I’m allowed to think their nice? Maybe blog about them even? Just the once?
Xerces are an English jewellery firm who make some of the coolest rings I have ever seen. Granted, I have a bit of a thing for terrariums and that appears to be their main focus, but their work and their pieces are genuinely delightful.
Mainly based around miniature foliage or steampunk influenced, Xerces‘ designs are all elegant and detailed and fascinate me in the same way a Bonsai would, or a Subbuteo player …. or even a miniature screwdriver. (A small attempt to regain some masculinity with tools and sport there)
Their jewellery is available through the Hipster paradise that is Etsy and I can vouch for the product quality, customer service and transaction ease after purchasing one for a certain special someone. Which wasn’t me. I promise.
