We recently sat down with Richie and discussed his personal journey will his jewellery style and collection along with tips if you're shopping for your father this upcoming Father's Day which you can read below.

Can you tell us about your personal style and how you incorporate jewellery into your overall look? 

I feel I have my own identity and take pride in my appearance and the pieces of jewellery that I do own complement this.

What are some of your favourite pieces of jewellery that you wear regularly, and why do you like them? 

I have always worn my single stone earrings which reflect my character and personality. They are an essential part of my every day wardrobe. 

How did you develop your interest in gentlemen's jewellery, and what drew you to this particular form of self-expression? 

I have always followed fashion and have a keen eye which has more than likely influenced me when it comes to my taste in jewellery.

Do you have any sentimental or heirloom pieces of jewellery that hold special meaning for you? If so, could you share the story behind them? 

Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that I have never inherited any pieces of jewellery because I would have loved to have told you a good story! However I do have some pieces of my own to pass on. In particular, my yellow gold and diamond buckle men's ring, I love this as it makes a statement and it's unusual.

Have you ever received a piece of jewellery as a gift from your children or partner? How did that make you feel, and what does it mean to you? 

Again, this is a question that unfortunately I cannot be of greater assistance to you, but to be totally honest, I'm a fussy person so my better half wouldn't risk buying me a piece!

How do you choose which jewellery pieces to wear for different occasions or events? Do you have any specific guidelines or preferences when it comes to accessorising? 

Honestly, I have no specific preference and wear my jewellery for all occasions.

Are there any fashion or jewellery trends that you particularly enjoy or follow? How do you incorporate those trends into your personal style? 

I'm not really a follower of jewellery trends, but I am most definitely a follower of fashion which I often receive positive customer comments for my style.

Is there a particular piece of jewellery that you consider your "go-to" or signature piece? If so, what makes it special to you? 

I suppose it has to be my single stone earrings. They are not the real deal (yet), but I treat them as though they are and they are an important part of my style identity.

What role do you believe jewellery plays in expressing your individuality and style? How does it contribute to your overall image? 

Jewellery plays a vital role in expressing my individuality and style because I wear the more unusual pieces that are one offs which assist my image and compliment my outfits.

Do you have any tips or advice for other fathers who are interested in exploring or expanding their jewellery collections? What would you recommend they consider when selecting pieces? 

My only advice would possibly be to be a little braver and make more style statements especially with our pre-owned, vintage and antique selection.

Each jewellery piece tells a story of timeless love and appreciation, symbolising the unbreakable ties that connect generations. Click here to shop our selection of gents jewellery.
