Guide to Buying Gifts for Men

Let’s be honest, finding gifts for men – ones they’ll really love and appreciate – can be a challenge, so I have decided to share our top 5 choices and men they are most likely to strike a chord with.

Pay attention to:

  • His style as well as his daily routine/job: does he work a lot with his hands (operating machinery or fixing things)? Could a ring get caught on something while he’s working? Then maybe a better choice would be a neck chain or a cuff bracelet. Does he work in the corporate world and If so, could he use a pair of cufflinks or a lanyard for his glasses? Is he a teacher? Would he enjoy a personalized quote on his gift?
  • Does he wear a lot of jewelry already? What would complement or enhance his collection?


Made just for men, they are substantial and masculine. Hand forged in sterling silver, we offer them in several finishes, including polished, oxidized and gold gilded, so you are sure to find one that he’ll love. Add his favorite quote, or yours, words of encouragement or a significant date and you have a sure winner! Suitable for all men in your life, our past customers equally bought these for significant others, fathers and friends of all age groups.


Super popular timeless style, these are a great gift because you don’t even have to worry about the size! They come in multiple finishes, so there sure is a style that will fit his! Perfect as you can buy only one or a set of three, so it is totally customizable!


We have created these with modern men in mind. Minimalist and multipurpose, some can be personalized and all can double as glass lanyard, for an added layer of function! Perfect for all ages and styles, from young professional to a retired avid reader!


Great for an approaching anniversary or just because, chunky, battered, smooth or with gold, we have them all.

Did you know that wood is a traditional 5th anniversary gift? Or that linen 4th? We have you covered! Many more in store, so go ahead, explore them all!


Does he like boats or nautical themes? Or does he wear stacks of mixed bracelets? If either is yes, than this one will be a winner!


To go alone or with his favorite pendant, or even layer, we offer a few for your consideration:


Personalized with initials, these are perfect for those who like high style and sense of status, but also make a great wedding gift for fathers, fathers in law, brothers, best man, groom etc.


Everybody needs one! Why not give an elegant, high quality sterling one that you can also personalize to your heart’s content?

Keep It Fun!

Being a bespoke label, we do all of our marketing in-house. And, sometimes, you just gotta have some fun with it!

There is a growing trend in layering and “stacking” everything from food to jewelry! We’ve tapped into the trend with our IG post featuring these little guys, who are really great at forming stacks 😂.

How it’s made… racer rings

Recently, we’ve moved half way across the planet (you can read about that in previous blog posts) with nothing more than a few suitcases… in other words, not enough space to pack any of the tools we usually use in jewelry making. So, we decided to buy some tools we’ve always wanted to have but could never really justify the expense… enters the mini lathe!

This wonderful piece of equipment enables us to precisely carve many of our racer rings, the gorgeous 2mm thick beauties you can see in our men’s section here.

The beauty of it is that Michel still carves each one by hand, as the cutting tool is hand operated, but the sizing of the rings is accurate to a fraction of a mm!

The other awesome thing is just watching the process, so we are sharing it with you! 😁

Once the waxes are carved, they have to be polished and cast in silver using lost wax technique. Each ring is made to order – we do not use moulds of any sort – so each ring is made from start to finish for a specific person.

Once cast, the sprues, used to inject silver into the mould need to be filed off and the whole ring usually ends up again on the lathe for the final filing and polishing. The whole process takes more than 8 hours to complete!

A Long Way Back Home…

…or where the inspiration comes from…

We’ve been living in Europe over the past 4 years, but it was time to “sail” back to Canada… we’ve taken the scenic route, with a stop in Iceland. A short digression here just to add that Iceland was on my bucket list ever since I took a random flight from Amsterdam to Boston back in 2003. I took the flight just because it was the cheapest option I could find – I was a student at the time – but boy, was I in for a surprise! As we approached the airport, I simply couldn’t believe the scenery, the moonlike paysage, the utter uniqueness of the place. Unfortunately, I had a really short layover so I was unable to go out and explore, but I knew I wanted to go back ever since. Back in the day, Iceland was not all the craze it is now, so I was a pioneer, lol.

Fast forward 16 years… We arrived in late November, when the days are super short and the Sun seems to graze the horizon for a mere few hours a day. The vegetation is all but nonexistent and the bare, black earth is crackled and adorned with frost glittering in the Sun. Some of the crevices are so narrow and deep, with big, black egg-shaped pebbles nesting inside. One cannot help but imagine that they were dragon eggs, laid there a millennia ago.

This world, so different than anything I have seen in my life, lends itself beautifully to explorations in silver… the imagery has occupied my mind and imagination even since and so, I have been drawing and making one of a kind pieces inspired by .

Fun at Work

It is said that artists always have fun working or was it that when you love your work it seems more like having fun? I probably got both sayings completely wrong, but hey, both apply in our case!

Nowadays, everyone is into satisfying videos, even kids refer to them as such! So, this post is about those satisfying moments we get to enjoy every day.

Can you guess what this is?
