Mens Garnet Rings, Suitability Of Red Garnets For Men
When it comes to men's rings, the question often asked is whether a red garnet is suitable for a mens ring. Many jewelry lovers have conditioned their mind to believe that, pink and red gemstone rings are not suitable for men. They argue that, these colors are more suitable for sleek and elegant jewels worn by ladies. When you talk about a men's garnet ring, the most popular of the garnets comes to mind. Red garnets are not every expensive and are generally not treated in any way to enhance their clarity of color.
There are many features of red garnets that make them suitable for mens rings, so read this complete report before you jump to any conclusion. Talking about the color of red garnets, you could describe the color as a deep majestic red. It is very unlikely that you will come across a mens red garnet gemstone ring with a flashy red color. Fashion experts describe the appearance of these gems as a quiet but confident red color. Rubies are also red gems but good quality rubies are bright red and can often show a pink color tint too. Red garnet gems can be found in two main shades of red, one is the deep red color and another is a brownish red (brick like) color. While we would surely recommend red garnets with no brownish tint for your mens ring, neither of the red shades will appear feminine.
When you analyze the suitability of a gem stone for particular jewels, you should look beyond color issues. The size availability of the gem takes special importance when it comes to mens gem rings. Mens rings generally have large dimensions and ring size, the gem stone size will need to match these dimensions. Let us presume that you need a 12x10 octogonal red gem stone for your ring, good quality or even medium quality rubies would almost certainly go over your budget. Such a gem would weigh around 5 carats and could cost around 5,000 U.S$ to 15,000 U.S$ depending on the quality, color and clarity of the ruby. On the other hand, choosing a red garnet gem for your ring would give you good value at a modest price. Red garnets can be had in sizes that go as high as 5 to 7 carats. And they would cost a fraction of what a similar size ruby would. You can therefore say with confidence that, large red garnet gem stone rings for men would be quite affordable.
Durability is another issue that needs to be addressed when it comes to mens rings. After all men today lead hectic lifestyles and are known to take very little care of the jewelry that they wear. Hardness is one of the main (but not the only) factors that, directly influences the durability of a gemstone. Red garnets check in with an impressive 7.5 to 8 (out of 10) when it comes to hardness. Combine this with the fact that, the gem is not very expensive and you will give the gem the due credit that it deserves. The color of red garnets is also stable, normal heat and light conditions will not cause the red color of the garnet to fade. Remember that, the design, weight and overall craftsmanship of a jewel also affect it's durability. Bad design and craftsmanship can cause the gem stone in a mens garnet ring to loosen and even drop off.
Gemstone interestingly is one thing, that needs to be considered when ordering a garnet ring for a man. It was for very long thought that, all garnets were red. The name garnet itself was inspired from a Latin word that meant, pomegranate seeds - reference being made to the red color of the seeds in the fruit. With science today being able to analyze crystals and minerals at the chemical and atom structure level, we now know that, garnets are found in colors far away from red too. For example, green garnets come in the form of tsavorite and demantoid, both gems being quite rare and expensive. Spessartite garnet offers the orange and reddish-orange color range for garnets. And hessonite garnet, comes in a yellow to yellowish brown color, priced on par with red garnets but, not a very popular gemstone. Technically you could have a man garnet ring with any of these garnets but, price will have a major influence on your decision.

Metal choice for your mens garnet ring is an interesting issue too. Since garnets are not affected by water, soap and most other household items, it can be safely mounted in mens gold or 925 silver rings. High gold prices tempt jewelers to produce mens rings with insufficient metal weight, this reduces longterm durability. Initially buyers are impressed with the low price tag but, the longterm condition of such low weight mens rings is always bad. If you cannot afford to budget for a good sturdy mens gold garnet ring, consider silver. By going for a custom gem stone ring, you can get the same gold ring design replicated in sterling silver. A reputed custom jewelry provider will ensure that the same degree of care and attention is provided for gold and silver jewels.
