The popularity of beautiful men’s rings date back for centuries. Many centuries ago, rings symbolized wealth, power and your status. These days, most of the mens ring fashions come in the form of mens wedding bands.
But any mens ring can be used to symbolize marriage, fidelity and commitment. But just like women there are many men who wear rings just because they like them, and not to symbolize marriage. These fashion rings can come in any size, and styles, and are available in most metals such as; silver, gold, platinum, titanium and tungsten.
As most men are very picky about the type of jewelry they would prefer to wear and how much of it, its crucial to be careful and accurate when choosing a particular piece of jewelry. Most men prefer the piece of jewelry to be different, and they all want something that is masculine in style, so when looking for a mens ring be extremely choosy.
Men tend to lean towards gold, silver, platinum and diamonds, all acceptable choices but not all men want diamonds, especially depending on the type of work that they do. The look of gold and diamonds translates into a look of wealth and extravagance. Some men prefer a simpler or low key style. So in this case, a plain gold or silver ring would be a great choice.
Platinum, titanium and tungsten mens rings are more modern metal choices. These metals are a bit newer to the jewelry market, and are beautiful, long lasting, durable, and they are conservative. Platinum is currently one of the most popular metals for mens rings because it is not only one of the strongest and long lasting, but has a proneness of forming a shine over time, so polishing is rare.
Using the metal platinum is great because it can also be used to make different facets, styles and decorations. Titanium which is known for its light weightiness is also an often favored metal for mens rings, because it is very strong.
Now that you have decided on a metal, the next choice will be the kind of design that you think hed like to have. Most men like more simple bands, while others prefer rings that depict a particular job, hobby, interest or belief. A cross or zodiac ring would be a great idea for a spiritual man, or a basketball and hoop for a sports fanatic.
Just like womens rings, mens rings can also be adorned with gemstones. Onyx, emerald, ruby, topaz, aquamarine, tanzanite are just a few stones seen in mens rings. Incorporating the right size and perfect cut gem can make for a stunning look.
In the late 20th century, a new kind of ring evolved for men as well. Promise rings became very popular first for women, and then, for men too. These days couples have many different reasons for exchanging promise rings before a formal engagement; the promise of pre-marital abstinence towards each other, or to mark the seriousness of a relationship.
When you are looking for a promise ring for a man, you will find that you have a lot of flexibility with style, color, and stone choices as with regular mens rings. The promise ring can be worn on either the left or right hand and on whichever finger you choose.
