How To Build Your First Ring Collection As A Man


Jewelry has been prominent on men and women for thousands of years, but in the last few hundred, it was primarily a feminine pursuit, at least in America and Europe. That is definitely beginning to change, and there has been a major resurgence in the norms of who can wear what and when. If you are looking to get into jewelry for the first time as a man, then rings are a great place to start. They are small, cheaper than bigger pieces like necklaces, and very easy to wear with multiple different types of outfits. Here are a few things you should look for in your first few rings.

Quality Material

While it is easy to find a bunch of cheap aluminum or tin rings out there, these do not age well and also feel quite bad on your fingers. Sterling silver will always be the best material for an everyday kind of ring, but if you are looking to be a tad more flashy, then gold is acceptable too. Some kind of precious metal alloy or coated sterling silver or gold rings are also good, although they will not last as long. If you want a ring you can wear every day and know it will look good in virtually every situation, then sterling silver should be your first choice.

Iconic Designs

While it can be fun to try and go in a completely unique direction with your rings, at first it is wise to be a little more pragmatic and stick to more iconic designs that are tried and true and compliment your style. For example, a sterling silver skull ring makes a perfect addition to a casual outfit while something like a silver signet ring with a small stone in it can even be worn with more professional outfits at work. When you get more comfortable with rings and fitting them into your style, it will be easier to be more independent with your choices, but for now, stick to the classics!

Some Plain Options

While the aforementioned silver skull ring or signet ring will blend in with most outfits, it never hurts to have a few plain rings that have no designs at all. These look good on their own as well as part of a collection on your hand, and you will no doubt be wearing them for decades to come while other ring styles fall in and out of favor. Basic staples are a must-have in any area of fashion, and rings are no exception.

A Special Gift for a Sweet Mother-In-Law

A few days ago, my mother-in-law’s dad passed away. This sweet man lived a long, full life. He was ninety-one-years-old when he died. At his funeral, my mother-in-law told me she liked the ruby, cross pendant I was wearing. Because I wanted to cheer this sweet woman up, I immediately came up with a plan. I decided to buy her a pendant like mine. Because this pendant was also available in sapphire, I decided to purchase this stone for my mother-in-law. Sapphire is her birthstone. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of jewelry items to buy for a mother-in-law. Enjoy!
