SALE HIGHLIGHTS

JEWELLERY FOR THE DAPPER MAN

Men’s adornment of jewellery has been in existence for many centuries, from early monarchs and noblemen wearing extravagantly decorated items that served as symbols of status, power and prominence to the current cultural conversations of today’s well-groomed and sophisticated dapper man. Today, men place particular importance on a groomed physical appearance, pursuing the presence of cool nonchalance. Designers pay homage to this trend by creating recognisably masculine pieces accented with subtle fresh twists, fashioning an elegant blend of contemporary masculinity. When it comes to man jewellery, a couple of tastefully selected pieces that complement each other are all that is necessary to complete a polished look.

DRAGONS
Dragons, with its mythical powers and legendary greatness, represent the highest spiritual power of change and transformation. Its majestic presence makes it one of the most potent symbols for wisdom and good fortune. Considered as the ‘Celestial Stag’, dragons are associated with the yang masculine principles of Sun, fire and dominance, as opposed to yin, the feminine principles of passivity and softness. Symbols of imperial hierarchy, their benevolence signifies grace, honour and magnanimity.
