i hope everyone had a stunning bank holiday (In The uk anyway). We’ve had some crazy sunny weather and it’s been lovely.
just a quick post to say that the first idea of the one off collection is....*drum roll* Signet rings.
Signet rings are very fashionable nowadays, always have been and always will be. The style of ring has been around for literally thousands of years and was usually possessed by people of stature and had significant wealth. They was used as a means to empart for example, their family crest onto things like letters, invoices and other important documents. The style we know has developed over the years but in general is not too dissimilar to what they used to be like except nowadays a vast majority of signet rings are pre-made using hydraulic presses with steel dies and they can be punched out or simply cast in large qualities. Needless to say, they are awesome, stylish, classic for ladies and gents and I can’t see them going anywhere anytime soon.
I don’t want to give away too much of what it is I’m going to be doing but the signet rings won’t be in the style of the image above...that is all I’m saying 😂
There will will only be one of each ring and there will never be another! The rings will be marked/engraved with “1 of 1” on the inside as well as saying “Rusty” and the date the ring was made. I’m super excited by this theme for the first collection as the signet ring was what spawned the idea for this whole one of collection thing in the first place! This first collection will first be on show at Top Drawer London on September 9th/11th.
i will be posting all of the process for the collection on my instagram so head over there to stay tuned to see how the collection is coming along. I may put rings up and available for pre order, what do you think?
Thanks for reading!
Peace and Love,
