Why should the ladies have all the fun? Men’s engagement and wedding rings are quickly gaining popularity for their variety of styles and colors available. Hollywood male celebrities like Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds and Johnny Depp have played an important role in making the men’s engagement ring a symbol for men to show that they are taken. While simple bands are still a solid choice, here are some popular styles to match any man with style and flair.
Platinum is an excellent choice for a ring metal for many reasons. First, platinum is very durable and is quite suitable for everyday jewelry. Additionally, platinum is a very rare metal and holds a significant investment value.
Many people associate platinum with masculinity as it is a strong metal with a powerful appearance. Platinum looks best in any setting, from a simple thick band to a band featuring an intricate design. View the GemsNY’s inventory of men’s platinum bands.
Splash of Color
A newer and popular trend in men’s rings is the addition of color gemstones to the setting. The benefit of color gemstones is that they can be found in any color. These gemstone rings can be customized to the wearer’s personal preferences.
Many men opt for gemstones such as blue sapphires, pigeon blood red rubies, intense green sapphires, and even black sapphires (referred to as midnight blue sapphires at GemsNY). Some opt for a single, small gemstone, while others looking for more color opt for a channel or bezel settings with multiple gemstones set in the ring.
Large centerstones are no longer just for women’s engagement rings. Many men are opting to get prominent gemstones like diamonds, sapphires, and rubies as their centerstone. A great way to display a centerstone in a men’s ring is through a bezel setting. The bezel setting keeps the centerstone at a low profile for both security and subtle look, but still displays the gemstone in a brilliant way. Here are some of GemsNY’s bezel settings for men’s rings.
Channel setting is considered the most preferred choice for an engagement ring among men. The channel setting has two metal strips in which diamonds are placed without any need for claws to hold them in place. These rings are unapologetically stylish and give a more masculine appearance to the men. In addition to diamond, you can choose any other gemstone for your channel ring design to create a befitting jewel for your personality.
For men who want to keep a simpler look but are still looking for a touch of design, bands with carved designs are the way to go. The ring metal is molded around a specific design, to create texture to the ring and draw light as well. These rings offer a tasteful, subtle look while still complementing the wearer’s personal style.
