Men’s Fine Jewellery
Adding a delicate touch of luxury to any look, men’s fine jewellery has now become a permanent fixture in the modern man’s wardrobe. Showcasing that diamonds are not solely reserved for the female form, the Browns collection of fine jewellery for men ranges from the classic to the experimental.
Revolutionising fine jewellery, Bleue Burnham’s foundations start with environmental sustainability, using recycled precious metals and lab-grown sapphires to create unique treasures. Metal and gem mining can involve the destruction of natural environments, a process that Bleue has removed, reusing sterling silver and 9K gold to make his collection of fine jewellery pieces. Based in East London, Bleue Burnham produces king worthy bejewelled creations that play with texture and form, adorned with a variety of lab-grown stones in a myriad of bold colours. Inspired by nature and committed to preserving it, Bleue Burnham’s jewellery is designed to enrich life with a conscious understanding, allowing the wearer to appreciate beauty in all its forms.
Described as ‘wearable artworks’, Joy Bonfield-Colombara creates sculptural jewellery that manifest as a collection of new age artifacts. Using a mix of silver, 18K gold and various precious stones, JOY BC’s pieces appear as though they have been transported from an ancient time. Inspired by Neoclassicism, each item has its own narrative, taking the form of mythical gods and goddesses. An RCA graduate, Joy hand carves each piece in her London based studio, creating unique jewellery with timeless appeal that are available exclusively at Browns.
Fusing both the feminine and masculine, young designer Chanyaporn ‘O’ Thongthai launched her eponymous jewellery line in 2014. After finding it difficult to source jewellery that she liked, she decided to go ahead and create her own, a venture that has resulted in numerous collaborations including, Nike, Denim Tears and Casablanca. Her signature-signet ring has gained somewhat of a famous following with her designs appearing on the likes of A$AP Rocky and Skepta. Born and raised in Thailand, her pieces take on a mix of inspiration that includes the rebellious youth culture of her native Bangkok. Blending rare and precious gemstones, O Thongthai rings and pendants vary in opulence, from the classic Sterling Silver Onyx Ring to a crystal drenched 9K Gold Sapphire and Tourmaline Ring.
The Rolex aesthetic is unmistakable but that is about to change with the unorthodox and unique MAD Paris watches. Founded by a watch collector in 2007, MAD Paris challenged themselves with the task of customising iconic, luxury watches without losing their quality and traditions. The classic collection of Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Richard Mille watches features timepieces such as the Daytona, Royal Oak and Nautilus that stay true to the original design but take on a coating of DLC – diamond-like carbon. This matt finish adds a contemporary twist to a time-honoured silhouette that breaks convention whilst respecting the spirit of the model. MAD Paris allows the wearer to express their personality by investing in a rare chronometer that embraces the modern culture.

With an ethical ethos at its heart, LAUD jewellery prides itself on sourcing conflict-free gold and silver from Ghana. The metal taken helps support local communities in Ghana that have previously been affected by illegal mining and are designed using traditional methods of casting. Influenced by the natural rock formations that make up the Ghanaian landscape, LAUD chains, bracelets and rings feature a hammered metal surface that gives them a uniquely raw aesthetic. Each piece is presented in a bespoke concrete based box that reflects the organic process undertaken to create each item.
