3 Things to Consider When Buying Mens Rings

< Back to Guides

Rings for Men are often side-lined by the sparkling show-stopping ladies’ rings with opulent vibrant gemstones and beautiful feminine designs, but why should the girls have all the fun? Mens Rings don’t need to be boring, they can be modern and contemporary – or even harking back to the classic days of the gentleman.

Here, we take you through our top three tips for choose the perfect Gents Ring:

1. Find what you like

Think about the type of ring you’d like to wear. Do you prefer classic styles such as gold signet rings or do you prefer the statement oversized look of a horseshoe ring? The style of the ring will be the first thing to attract you to a piece, so think about what you feel you’d wear the most.

Rings come in a range of precious metals and colours, and each can create a certain look depending on what style of ring you choose. Yellow Gold is the most popular material in our range of Gents Rings, with 9ct Gold being our top pick for a quality piece that will be hardwearing throughout its life (see below Trilogy ring as a fine yellow gold example). Platinum is a good choice for those that are active in their lifestyle, whether you’ve got a strenuous outdoor job or have a passion for sport.

Will the ring go with the other jewellery items you own? If you own a watch with gold hardware, why not go for a similar colour ring for a matching co-ordinated look? Alternatively, mix and match different precious metals for an effortless unique combination that will help make you stand out from the crowd.

2. Know your size

When picking a Mens Ring we recommend you consider two measurements to ensure that the ring fits correctly and looks great; the ring size and the ring width.

The ring size can be measured at your local jewellers, and you can write down the ring size of all the fingers you’re interested in wearing rings on for future reference. The width of the ring is the measurement down the centre of the ring; this can depend on how much of a statement you’d like your ring to be! A gentleman’s fingers can often be large and require a large width of band to make the ring look proportionate to the wearer. Try several rings with a variety of widths, this will help you to see what you feel most comfortable in and even introduce you to a new style you love!

3. Consider purchasing pre owned

Buying a pre owned item can often be overlooked in favour of the brand new shiny ranges on the high street, however buying pre owned jewellery could give you better value for money and be a great investment.

So, if you're considering purchasing a pre owned gents ring, take a look online or in store for inspiration! We stock a variety of mens rings from signet rings and wedding rings to gold diamond rings, keeper rings and buckle rings; something to suit any gentlemens finger!
