Mens Silver Rings, What To Expect From A Men's 925 Silver Ring
Mens silver rings enjoy greater popularity as compared to mens gold rings. Precious metals like gold and silver are not cheap today, prices have been taking an upward spiral for the last couple of years. Having said that, we cannot conclude that major demand for mens 925 sterling silver rings is spurred by the lower cost of silver (as compared to gold). Many men prefer silver plain and gem stone rings because of the calm and confident appearance of silver. The fact that men generally do not like to wear flashy clothes or fashion accessories is well known. In this report on mens sterling silver rings, we will address various issues related to these types of jewels. There will not be much importance given to getting us any sales orders! Examples of silver mens rings if shown, will intend to equip you with essential information related to selecting a mens 925 silver ring.

You will therefore find that this report is more in the format of a FAQ (Frequently Asked Format) rather than, a formal report.
Which are the designs suitable for a men's silver ring? When we talk about jewelry there are some phrases that are often used. For example, a mens antique ring design would be based on a design that is fairly old. You could say that a men's silver claddagh ring is an antique ring design. This because the first claddagh ring was made almost 4 centuries ago. Mens antique rings are very suitable for silver rings, in terms of design. Silver has that classic look that blends well with antique jewels. Another thing about antique jewelry designs is that they would be fairly indulgent in terms, of dimensions and metal weight. Sterling silver jewelry can be fairly heavy without burning the price point. Mens religious rings, are jewels with special meaning. It is the design or shape of such jewels that gives them a specific importance. A good example is a mens silver cross ring, or even a mens sterling silver ring with the ankh (Egyptian) symbol. When it comes to such sterling silver men's rings, you should know that the meaning is in the design concept or shape of the jewel. The more important is that a modestly priced silver ring or an extravagant gold ring have the same level of meaning or significance.
Talking about modern designs for a mens silver ring, there is no reason why every ring that is made in gold cannot be crafted in silver. If you continue reading this report you will get a good idea of the type of design that is suitable for your 925 silver men's ring.
Should you choose a plain or gemstone silver ring? When it comes to a mens silver ring, this is one of the most commonly asked questions. Giving it the due importance that it deserves, we will try to answer this question as thoroughly as possible. When we talk about a plain sterling silver ring for men, we will refer to a mens ring that has no gems or diamonds. Similarly, a mens gemstone ring in 925 sterling silver would refer to a mens ring that has gems or diamonds set in the ring.
If your ring has a special significance in terms of the gem, you will obviously not think of a plain sterling silver men's ring. Let us presume that you were born in the month of January and you wanted a mens birth stone ring in sterling silver. If this was the case, you would be looking for a 925 sterling silver garnet gem stone ring. In this case there would be no question about 'choosing' a gem - the birthstone would select itself.
If you like mens jewelry and had a special liking for blue gems, your silver mens ring would ideally have a gemstone that is blue in color. If you do not need any specific type of blue gem - your choice could be based on the cost and durability of the gemstone. For example, a blue sapphire gem for a 925 mens silver ring would be very durable and sturdy however, it would also be quite expensive. If you have a fairly good knowledge of gems you could even speicify a particular gem that, could be set in your ring.
Gems can add beauty and meaning to a mens silver ring. This is what you can see in a mens birth stone silver ring or a ring with the gem that you adore. But keep in mind that gems also consume a part of the budget for your silver ring. When it comes to certain gems like ruby, sapphire and emerald, it should not surprise you if the cost of the stone is higher than the cost of the silver in the ring.
Still on the topic of gemstone silver rings for men, the properties of silver might need to be kept in mind when choosing the gem for your ring. For example, tarnish is a phenomenon that occurs on silver jewelry. Liquid solutions are available to clean the tarnish on silver jewelry. If you choose a mens silver ring with emerald, it is necessary to avoid soaking the ring in water or any other solution. The possibilty of cleaning your tarnished silver emerald gem stone mens ring with a liquid solution therefore does not arise.
When it comes to mens silver rings with no gems or diamonds, certain positive features stand out clearly. Firstly the ring will not need to budget for the gem stone, you can therefore allocate your budget to get a ring that has good craftsmanship and metal weight. You could say that the durability of a plain silver mens ring could be quite high. This is because gems require a good craftsman to be set firmly and neatly. You might also need to take special care to ensure that the gems are not damaged in the course or normal wear. These issues will not be relevant if your mens sterling silver ring has no gems. There is also no doubt that a mens plain 925 silver ring will be easier to clean and store.
A mens 925 silver plain ring need not appear dull and boring. In the case of rings with symbols, dates or similar subjects - the etching of the symbols or characters can be used to add interest to the jewel. Cross mens silver rings offer many ways to make the jewel attractive even in cases where, the ring has no gemstones or diamonds set in it. A mens wedding band ring in silver could have a celtic design all around the band, this would more than make up for the lack of gems or diamonds. Various finishing types can also be applied to the plain mens ring to ensure that, the ring does not appear dull and lifeless. The skilled craftsmen at Kaisilver could do a hammered finish or even a gravel, type of finish on your mens 925 silver ring. A mens plain sterling silver ring with an antique design concept could have black antiquing done on the jewel, this gives the jewel a classic and valuable appearance.
Will a mens 925 sterling silver ring tarnish? It is important to understand the meaning of silver tarnish before we attempt to answer this question. All silverware and not just silver jewelry shows a color discoloration over a period of time. This could start with a light brown tint on the silver. It could then become darker and quite stubborn over a period of time. The good thing is that silver polishing solutions are available, these can be used to take off the tarnish from your silver ring. We would also suggest that your mens 925 silver ring not be plated with rhodium, gold or any other metal. This is because such platings wear off after a while and could leave the ring looking drab and dull.
What should be an ideal metal weight for a mens silver ring? This is a very interesting and important question, unfortunately there is no single answer to this question. Metal weight is very critical in defining the durability of a jewel. We could say that the weight of a 925 sterling silver men's ring should be proportionate to the ring size and dimensions. Kaisilver mens rings weigh around 40% to 60% more as compared to similar rings crafted by other jewelers. We are aware that this weighs on the price tag but, it is the only way to make a ring sturdy and durable. Insufficient weight for a mens plain or gem stone silver ring would, make the jewel prone to denting and deforming. The firmness of the gem mounting will also be influenced by the metal weight.
We would suggest that you keep some guidelines in mind when evaluating the metal weight for your men's 925 silver ring. If a mens silver ring weighs less than 15 to 18 grams or a gold mens ring weighs less than 20 grams, give the jewel a good look. Make sure that the ring is not flimsy or weak. You might save some money by buying a light weight jewel but, the possibility of paying frequent repair and replacement charges will finally add up.
Which gems are suitable for mens 925 silver rings? Our immediate answer would be that, just about any gem stone could be set in a mens silver gem stone ring, but some clarifications are in order. While it is true that most jewelers use the second grade gems for silver jewelry, there is no reason why good quality gems cannot be used for a mens sterling silver ring. On the practical side, it is quite obvious that most mens rings have fairly large gem sizes. Keeping this in mind, you will need to understand that some gems can be very expensive as the gem size increases. The design of a mens 925 silver ring would define the gem size and shape that is required. So if you come across a ring that needs a 12x10mm oval blue topaz - the design and dimensions are not suitable for a mens sapphire silver ring. This is because a 12x10mm oval sapphire would be expensive even, if the gemstone is of a medium quality.
The durability and toughness of a gem need to be considered for both gold and 925 silver rings. For example, chrome diopside is a gorgeous green gem but, it is quite soft and basically not suitable for rings. Similarly if you plan to choose a kunzite gemstone for your mens silver ring, you should be aware that kunzite fades with time.
If you had to work an equation between, price and durability for gems that could be used for a mens sterling silver ring, here are a group of gems that would be suitable. All shades of blue topaz and ofcourse white topaz too. Red garnet, amethyst, citrine, agate, blue lapis, black onyx, carnelian and even peridot. Move a step higher on the price ladder and you would find aquamarine, pink tourmaline, rhodolite garnet and green tourmaline as your options. You need to keep in mind that expensive gems are not always very durable. A good example is emerald, if you choose this gem for a 925 sterling silver mens ring, you will need to keep the ring away from hard objects, avoid soaking the mens silver emerald ring in water and take a few more precautions too. On the other hand mens gem stone silver rings with gems like ruby and sapphire will be quite tough.
Should I plate my mens silver ring with gold, rhodium or platinum? This is indeed an interesting questions and the answer needs to be a bit detailed. One known characteristic of silver is that it will tarnish, the factors that lead to this are many and complex to understand - so just note that your men's silver ring will tarnish. Jewelers have tried many ways in which, the phenomenon of tarnish in the case of silver can be stopped or prevented. Technically, if you could protect the surface of the metal from various environment related factors that play a part in tarnish formation, the metal could be left without any tarnish. When you talk about plating a mens 925 silver ring, the idea is to prevent the ring from tarnish, a plated ring can also look much like gold or even platinum and therefore appear far more expensive than it really is. If this is really true then, choosing a plating option for your silver men's rings should be a great idea. Unfortunately, the plating done on silver will not last forever, it will show signs of wear and tear and then come off in streaks or patches. As the silver below the plating gets exposed, tarnish is to be expected. And since the wear off for the plating is not uniformly spread across the jewel, you can expect the silver jewel to tarnish in bits and patches - this can make the ring appear quite shabby and difficult to clean or polish. So if you choose to leave the mens sterling silver ring un-plated, it will begin to tarnish in a while but, cleaning it will be quite easy. Just make sure that, you begin cleaning or polishing your silver jewelry just as it begins to tarnish. Stubborn tarnish can form if, the jewel is not cleaned at the first signs of tarnish.
Can I wear a mens silver wedding ring? This is one of the easiest questions to answer and we will say YES YES YES. In recent years sterling silver has been given the due importance and respect that, it deserved to get several decades ago. The metal is fine for both formal and casual wear, so a mens silver wedding ring is absolutely fine. And remember that the significance of wedding and engagement rings is in the event, not in the metal or the price that you pay for the jewels. Just make sure that your 925 silver men's wedding ring has the design, quality and gemstone that you choose. This jewel will have immense sentimental value and be worn for a lifetime, so make sure that you get a durable and fine quality 925 silver ring. Our suggestion would be to go for a good custom silver ring for men, a jewel that can include all your preferences and is not, a bundle of compromises.
How much should a mens custom silver ring cost? Before we get to the discussion on the pricing of a men's custom made silver ring, let us define a few parameters. Firstly a custom 925 silver ring should have good craftsmanship, the gems should be on par with those that would be set in a gold ring. It should be a jewel that looks good but is also, sufficiently durable and sturdy. When ordering such a ring you should have complete control, over the design, dimensions and gemstones. Such a jewel will not be mass produced, so the jeweler will need to do the entire production process right from, wax carving, silver mold making, rubber mold making and finally, the production of the ring of your choice. Such a ring should be priced in a range that starts at around 300 U.S$ to 350 U.S$. The maximum price is a bit tough to estimate as it would, depend on the design and gemstone selected.
