Gents: Shop This New Engagement and Lifestyle Ring Collaboration from D├ęsideria Collection and Influencers Alex & MIke

By Antonia DePace | January 4, 2021 | Style & Beauty


Like many great stories, this one started with a question. For Desiree Cavalancia—owner of custom fine jewelry line Désideria Collection (—it came in the form of her best friend’s engagement to his partner. That’s when she noticed a gap in the men’s engagement jewelry industry. Cue local lifestyle influencers Alex Nelson and Mike Rubino (@alexandmike). Immediately, the three created a new line featuring an array of stunning engagement and lifestyle rings for men. Available online, the rings dazzle in a variety of metals and precious stones—with intricate engravings and patterns. “This is a collection that really represents who we are,” says Rubino. “This wasn’t something we just slapped our name on—it’s a collaborative project that we poured our hearts into.”
