This is a subject close to my heart. As a diamond lover I don’t understand why men wearing diamonds is so uncommon. The only gentlemen that I know who wear diamonds on a daily basis are myself and my diamond supplier who both have diamond set wedding bands.
Taking about wedding bands and gents jewellery, I guess this is a prime time to talk about my own wedding ring. I decided to go for a full eternity ring set with the smallest trillion cut diamonds available.
I imagine part of the reason for this is that when you go into a jewellers there is so little choice for men’s wedding rings. Well lets be honest, there is normally only one design to choose from - a princess cut diamond flush set into a wide wedding band. If you’re lucky there might be a round cut diamond equivalent but there is never much choice.
However, from a designer’s point of view you have a lot of scope for men’s stone set wedding bands. This is because they often have wider and deeper bands than ladies rings and this allows for more unusual stone cuts to be set into the ring.
Personally I think geometric designs work really well for a man’s wedding band along with mixed metals, but - the world is your oyster!
Below I’ve created three designs that would all give a stunning detail to a man’s ring:
