Uh-huh-uh-huh-uh-hun-uh-no. Yes I am now actually singing that Beyonce song, and no it has nothing to do with the forever and ever part of it. It’s actually gotta do with literally putting a ring on IT, ‘it’ being one of your fabulous fingers and swaging your swag to wherever it is you’re going. And that’s exactly what I did: on the gloomiest December morning ever, when it was so cold outside you could barely breath, so foggy I couldn’t see my feet, I put a ring on it, took my photographer pal with me, and shot some pics of my Dragon inspired self.
Let me tell you the story. A while ago I teamed up with an amazing talented young jewellery designer Andrey Koshman from – KOSHMAN RINGS brand – and after the most terrifying and beautiful designing and brainstorming process ever we came up with a Men’s RING that has super powers.
Each ring is made to order and you can get yours here – Men’s Rings – by KOSHMAN RINGS
This men’s ring represents all the energy of one of the most powerful and dangerous magical creatures ever: Dragons. They don’t care of what others think about them. They are smart and wise, and powerful enough to do whatever they want. This men’s ring doesn’t make you a dragon, it just reminds that you already are one. – Andrey Koshman
The idea of a Dragon skin ring was simply love at first sight for me, as it embodies everything I adore about both fashion and life: contrasts. It’s strong, polished, it’s got swag, but it’s minimal, it’s got a rocknroll vibe, but it’s also urban hip hop dope, it’s got so much meaning and power to it, and it’s a piece of art at the end of the day, which always leads to you feeling a certain type of empowerment and coolness when you put it on.
Jewellery wise it’s so well created and crafted it feels both heavy and precious on your fingers. I’m wearing it in silver, and although I always go for gold in jewellery, I adored it this way. Something about silver makes it unearthly and incredibly powerful in a very masculine and sharp way. It has that cold steeliness and high polished indifferent beauty to it, a certain kind of magical power that sent me away to some land where ‘Game of Thrones’ characters live side by side with Dragons, and there’s a code of honour, there are love affairs and stories, and passions, and it’s always cold, and fashion always creeps its way in there somehow, in tiny details like rings, and fur, and leather.
THE DRAGON SKIN RING by KOSHMAN RINGS X FashionTag is a men’s ring at the end of the day, a bit too large for my tiny fingers, BUT who cares, I’m wearing it either way and if you’re a woman with a penchant for powerful statements, art, beauty, and fashion you’ll love it as well. I paired it today with a few other silver rings for a full on effect.
If you’re a man… you have to wear it. I love men who aren’t afraid to wear rings. Big, bold rings that always have a hidden meaning behind them, rings that speak about their style, their loves, their worlds, their taste in life, music, fashion.
HOW TO WEAR IT? We wanted to make a ring that is a perfect jewellery choice for men with a strong character and a strong sense of style. The Dragon Skin Ring is the perfect marriage of fashion and art and that makes this piece a very sleek but versatile one. It is precious and powerful enough to work so well into a smart and refined, elegant, and very city professional style. Even slightly retro if you will.
OR if you’re a man seeking and living advetures and have a more eclectic look or even more urban – be it rocknroll, punk, or hiphop I am telling you the ring is the dopest thing ever. It blends and stands out as well.
I LOVE that it’s minimal and sleek, but it’s also very heavy, strong, bold, and edgy with its dragon skin texture and that cold and heavy steeliness. The packaging is fabulous and it’s art in itself. I adore it, and will be wearing it forever and ever, men ring and all.

Thank you Andrey Koshman for this incredible opportunity, for allowing me to express myself and create beyond my comfort zone, for challenging me, and at the end of the day for this incredible outcome, which I’m so proud and humbled to be part of. The Dragon Skin Ring is a project closest to my heart and I love it for what it looks like, but mostly for all it stands. I like to think of myself as a strong but sensitive woman, and for me, that is exactly what the ring represents.
