  • Ring Sizing Explained

    free ring sizer

    Ensure you get the perfect fit, with our complimentary ring sizer. To receive a complimentary ring sizer by post, please email us your name and UK postal address here.

    At Azendi we measure most of our rings in European sizes. A European size is the circumference of the ring measured in millimetres.

    Conversion chart from UK to our European sizes

    J = 50                 O = 56            S = 62

    K/L = 52             P = 58            T/U = 64

    M/N = 54          Q/R = 60        V/W = 66

    If it is not convenient to order the ring sizer above, then we suggest you print out the sizing guide below.

    1: Size your finger by printing off this ring sizing guide. You must print it at the exact size.

    2: It is important to measure your ring size at the end of the day when your fingers are at their largest. This will enable you to get the most accurate ring size. Do not measure when your hands are cold as your fingers will be at least half a size smaller than usual.

    3: Rings with a thick band may feel tighter than a thin band. Buying one size up from your usual ring size is recommended in these cases.

    4: If you’re buying a gift for someone, try to borrow their ring and use our ring sizer guide to determine its size.

    5: Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; it should be snug enough so that it doesn’t fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.

  • Cufflinks Guide

    Cufflinks add the final touch to any shirt and will always ensure that you’re dressed to impress. Whether you’re looking for a formal or an every day at the office style, we’ve got a cufflink to suit all needs. Not sure which style is for you? There’s a few things to consider before purchasing cufflinks…

    Cufflink Types

    Cufflinks

    Whale Back Closure Cufflinks

    Whale back cufflinks are one of the most popular styles as they are easy to handle. The ‘whale tail’ is attached at the end and flips completely flat against the post allowing it to be threaded through the shirt and flips back again to lock. This simple mechanism allows the wearer to easily fasten them and keep them securely in place. For a simple but sleek look, our Steel Diagonal Stripes Cufflinks and Textured Steel Cufflinks have a hinged back to create this whale tail effect.

    Bullet Back/Toggle Closure Cufflinks

    Similar to a whale-back fastener, the toggle closure cufflinks are easy to use and keep securely fastened. The toggle is flipped 90 degrees to line up inside the post and flipped back again to secure. These cufflinks are ideal for formal occasions or in the office. Simple yet sophisticated our Black Square Cufflinks would complete any smart suit.

    Stud/Button Cufflinks

    The stud cufflink is the most secure and robust cufflink as there are no moving parts. With a fixed back, the smaller head is threaded through the loop of the shirt at an angle and straightened to lock in place. Stud cufflinks are generally smaller and lighter in weight, making it one of the most practical types of cufflinks as well as stylish. Our Anodised Titanium Cross Cufflink has been crafted from solid titanium on a turning lathe to eliminate the need for any moving parts, therefore making it one of our strongest cufflinks.

    Cufflink Metals

    Cufflinks

    Stainless Steel Cufflinks

    One of the most common and fashionable metals used for cufflinks is stainless steel. Known for being durable and resilient, it will not tarnish or discolour over time. For a cufflink that will stand the test of time, see our Rectangle Steel Grooves Cufflinks which has grooved rectangles for a stylish finish.

    Plated Brass Cufflinks

    Cufflinks crafted from plated brass are strong and durable. Our brass cufflinks are plated with nickel for a hard and shiny finish. Perfect for everyday wear, our Simple Square Cufflinks have a polished finish for a classic look.

    Titanium Cufflinks

    Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all metals making it lightweight and extremely strong. Usually a matt grey colour, we’ve anodised our Titanium Grooves Cufflink, treating them with an electric current to create a rainbow effect of colour, that will not fade.

    Cufflink Designs

    Cufflinks

    Embellishment

    Whether you want to match a colourful tie or your favourite shirt, embellished cufflinks are available in a wide variety of designs and colours. The sky is the limit with these designs and our Aeroplane Cufflinks create a fun and playful style.

    Enamel

    Enamel is a popular material for adding colour gloss on top of a metal surface. Made from fused powered glass it creates a hard and glossy finish which will not fade. The technique used to create these cufflinks allows for intricate, bright and fun designs like our Striped Enamel Rectangle Cufflinks and Union Jack Round Cufflinks.

    Mother of Pearl

    Mother of pearl is a valuable and precious material which makes it perfect for formal attires. The pearl is inlayed into the metal making it strong and resilient. With an iridescent finish, our Mother Of Pearl Piano Cufflinks would create some eye-catching effects on any dance floor.

    All of our cufflinks are delivered in a stunning hinged presentation box, making it the perfect gift for  weddings, birthdays or Father’s Day. See our full cufflink range here.
