One of my discoveries during Pure London show was a fantastic brand called The Rogue + the Wolf. I am a ring lover – some days I have one on almost every finger!
The designs are different and unusual; I was absolutely mesmerised by their quirky and a little bit bad-ass jewellery – which is, at the same time, rather adorable; there are some really cute designs too!
Needless to say, I fell in love with the amazing designs from Eloise H. R. + Michael W. Seriously, Eloise is such a darling! The designing duo love experimenting and prototyping and from there came the idea of 3-D printing Eloise’s illustrations. The forward-thinking and innovation the brand prides itself for is clearly expressed on the designs – a range of captivating items that feel like part of your hand when worn.
In all honesty, if I could, I’d buy all the rings, in every material. They 3D print in polyamide, steel (bronze infused), sterling silver, gold-plated bronze-infused steel and mirror gold-plated brass. And their designs are not just limited to rings – you will find earrings, necklaces and faux-taxidermy (yes, lovely pieces for your house).
I got the “Betray” ring, a middle-knuckle ring with an organic flow and sharp thorns . It fits beautifully and can be worn (I found) in any directions – till looks amazing!
Mine is in black polyamide, – it has an almost “furry” finish to it; the texture is lovely to touch. I thought it was going to break easily but this one is tough! Used a lot and it is still in one pretty piece!
I also got the “Obey” ring, with is also a thorny middle-knuckle ring – but with longer, thicker thorns than “Betray”. This one I got in bronze infused steel. It is silver, but will sit well with gold, because of the bronze infusion. I also found I can use it in any direction – I love the way its round bottom frames either the cuticles (with its round shape) or the knuckle. I am in love.
My sights (and heart) are set on the “Conquer” antler ring. I will get it soon.
Apart from the stunning jewellery, the guys from R+W are absolute lovelies. I mean, so sweet, attentive, helpful, you name it – this made me fall in love with the brand even more.
Prices range from £8 to £530. The ones I got are £10, for “Betray” and £28 for “Obey” in those finishes.
