Men wearing rings is not a new concept. Whether you are shopping for blue sapphire rings for men, men's wedding rings or or contemporary engagement ring for your man, you will only be following a long line of royal tradition.
Men have been wearing rings for as far back as any recorded documents ever found.
ancient times, wedding rings and practical purpose rings were a sign of wealth
Peasants couldn't afford such luxuries. Guess what? both Princess Diana and now Kate Middleton - the Duchess of Cambridge, in even the most recent times, got "stunning ring befitting of a royal engagement" in the form of a 12 carat sapphire ring during their respective engagements.
Times haven't really changed that much.
Even though the average person can now afford a simple wedding band, jewelry, especially rings, are still one of the most recognizable signs of wealth and power.
These days, about the only practical purpose a ring serves is to show your status.
Practical rings in ancient times had many other purposes.
Although rings still have some purpose today, most are worn
merely for adornment and given as tokens of love or appreciation. Mens sapphire rings are the perfect choice for this. They come in blue, yellow, pink and white shades, with the blue ones being more popular. The choice is yours to make.
Traditionally, teens have often exchanged class rings as tokens of friendship or to signify a relationship.
These days, men and women are exchanging promise rings and/or engagement rings.
Mens sapphire rings are becoming the ring of choice.
The stunning deep blue mens sapphire ring has become a favorite amongst givers and receivers. The gems can be cut into any shape or size, to compliment any type of finger.
Men with thicker fingers tend to prefer the chunky cut, while more slender fingers look better with a smaller gem.
The star sapphire ring makes a fabulous fashion statement on all types of fingers.
Match the cool blue of the sapphire with a tungsten metal band and you really have a man's ring.
Sapphires can be mounted on any metal, the same as any other gemstone. Tungsten just adds a little bit more masculinity. Tungsten is the new sterling silver. Formerly if a gem was not mounted on sterling silver or gold, it was viewed as less desirable. Today, tungsten is all the rage, especially in jewelry for men.
Men love tungsten. It is a durable metal that can be polished to perfection. And with a name like tungsten carbide – it just oozes masculinity. The best part, it won't ding or dent. Of course, you never want to wear a ring while working on a motor or heavy machinery because it could catch and rip your finger off. But, with a tungsten carbide band housing a beautiful sapphire gem, you could, without worrying about damaging the ring.
Sapphire and tungsten make a great pair because both are known for their durability and strength. Not to mention unmatched beauty. That is not to say that all men love the color blue. But, if blue is your color, mens sapphire rings mounted on long lasting and great looking tungsten will definitely be on your wish list.
