If jewellery for men conjures up images of piled on gold chains over a hairy chest, wipe that picture out of your head-immediately.
Now that Karl Lagerfeld has made men's rings cool (he's been stacking both hands with his own men's creations for H&M) we think any guy'd flip for Elsa Smith's new ESLA range of men's jewellery, inspired by human anatomy.
Think chunky, spiky, brass-knuckle-like silver rings and tuff cuffs.
He'll for sure scrap those gold medallions for this.
