A man doesn’t have to go into a jewelry store looking for a ring to propose to a partner; a man can certainly purchase a ring for himself. They are a small touch to an outfit that can change its vibe, add a little showmanship, or signify marriage or engagement.
Like most fashion pieces and accessories, awesome men’s rings are a way for them to express themselves. They can jazz up an outfit just as easily as they can make a personal statement about beliefs, characteristics, and interests. It is becoming more socially acceptable for men to wear rings that aren’t commitment symbols. Men are now wearing rings that tell others a little bit about themselves.
A Sign of Commitment
If you’re getting engaged or are married, you may be interested in a wedding band. In fact, the number one reason men wear rings is as a sign of their commitment to their partner. There are a lot of options for demonstrating that commitment. As far as men’s rings go, there are a plethora of options. Some men prefer silicone rings because they are more comfortable and better suited for the man with a hands-on kind of job. There’s also traditional gold, silver, and platinum, as well as nontraditional metals like titanium and tungsten. Whether you choose to incorporate a stone or not, texture or not, is all up to you.
A Symbol of Power
Rings have served as a symbol of power for thousands of years. They’ve been used to note a man’s status, his fortune, and his ability. A man’s signet ring was the ultimate status symbol. Signet rings are embossed with a symbol or monogram and were sometimes used to seal and sign messages. Kings and nobility wore them, while most other common folk hadn’t the resources to afford status rings.
No outfit is complete without a little accessorizing. Whatever your gender, an accessory can really make a difference to an outfit. When putting on a watch, cuff links, or a tie pin, a ring can be the subtle touch that brings it all together. With so many metal types, textures, and colors to choose from, there’s a ring for almost any occasion. Just be sure to consider the size of your hands when choosing a ring. Too big, and your hand is minimized; too small, and it won’t make an impact; too gaudy, and it can detract from the outfit. There are plenty of considerations to make, but there’s no need to overthink it. If you do what you like and it feels good, then your confidence will add to your looking good.
Men also wear rings for special occasions. Whether they’re going out for a night on the town or attending a black tie event, a ring is a great accessory to bring to the event. First impressions are important, and something as simple as a ring can make a lasting impression. No matter the celebration, a ring might be just what you’re looking for to complete your look.
It’s true. Men’s rings are in. There are many ways to incorporate a ring into your outfit, and it’s often such a small touch that makes a big difference. There are plenty of reasons to wear a ring, but the best reason is your reason.
