It's a message of hope that's been helping men stay true to themselves and be who they really are, even during difficult times.

The Camden Watch Company has announced its move into jewellery

British independent designer, The Camden Watch Company has announced its move into jewellery. The new Memento Mori 925 sterling silver unisex ring is adorned with the company's Memento Mori design.

Memento Mori translates as: 'Remember you must die', a recurring theme in Victorian jewellery and art. Contrary to how that may sound, Memento Moris was intended as a celebration of life, to remind us that life is short and every second counts.

Anneke Short, designer and co-founder of The Camden Watch Company, said: "While watch design has always been a passion, I originally studied jewellery making and decided it was time to pursue this. While I love all the products we make, the Memento Mori seemed most natural, especially with its link to the Victorian era who had a fascination with collecting Memento Mori keepsakes."

Check out the new Editions De Parfums Frédéric Malle fragrance

The Frédéric Malle brand has always been synonymous with chic. While Malle gives total creative freedom to his collaborators, he sees it as his job as a publisher to maintain a certain overarching sensibility, which has historically been highly refined. Yet innovation, reinvention, and interpretation is his raison d'être. Hence his quest for what he describes as "an almost-too-obvious, in-your-face cologne": a scent that plays with the tired codes of masculinity while extracting their telluric force to make something beautiful and irresistible. Uncut Gem walks up to the line of good taste, ties it into a lasso, and casually ropes a bucking bronco.

Maurice Roucel is one of Malle's first collaborators, a good friend, and the author of several of his most iconic scents, including Musc Ravageur. And for years, Malle had been intrigued by Roucel's own signature scent, a unique blend he'd created in the lab for his own use. technically brilliant, and filled with warm charm. After five years of persuasion, Roucel agreed to work with Malle to create the cologne that would become Uncut Gem.
