Mens Gemstone Claddagh Rings, Selecting A Gem Stone
It is interesting to observe that though many men prefer to wear rings without gems, mens claddagh rings are generally ordered with gemstones. It does seem that men have increasingly become aware of the meaning and significance of the claddagh ring. So how should you select the gem stone for a men's gold or 925 silver claddagh ring. It might not always be possible to get the gemstone type and gem stone shape that you wish for. Various factors can place a limitation on your choice, in this report we discuss and explain the most important factors that you should know. Before we begin, we would like to clarify one issue, this relates to the meaning and significance of your mens claddagh ring. If you had to go by the original claddagh ring made around 375 years ago, that ring never had a gem stone at all. It was a solid gold claddagh ring with no gemstone. This would imply that the center heart portion was also solid gold. Your Kaisilver mens claddagh ring can be custom made with or without a gemstone. In this report we are talking about mens gemstone claddagh rings with gems.
There is an interesting difference between the way ladies and men choose the gemstones for their jewelry. A fairly large number of ladies choose the gemstone based on their 'favorite' gem type or 'favorite' gem color. Men on the other hand seem to choose gemstones that have some special meaning of significance to them. Have a look at the MAN33 Kaisilver mens claddagh gold ring, the ring is made with a custom cut black onyx stone. You might know that an onyx gem is not on the birth stone charts but yet, it is a very popular gemstone among men. Though onyx does have some folklore and tradition attached to it, men prefer black onyx for it's calm and confident appearance. Dark blue, dark green and black gems are hot favorites for men claddagh rings. If you are interested in knowing some of the folklore attached to this gem, here it is. Many people believe (even today) that black onyx allows a person to cope with tragedy and sorrow. There is no scientific research to backup this theory but, the belief has existed for almost a century now.
Mens Silver Carnelian Gem Stone Claddagh Ring
All Kaisilver mens claddagh rings can be ordered in gold or 925 sterling silver. Here is a mens silver claddagh ring with carnelian gem stone. The MAN60 Kaisilver sterling silver claddagh ring can ofcourse be custom made in 14k or 18k gold too. We get frequent queries for mens gold claddagh rings with a question, buyers want to know whether a white gold claddagh ring is suitable for men. The fact is that both yellow and white gold claddagh rings would be equally durable and strong. It is the design and dimensions of a mens white gold claddagh ring that would make the jewel appear masculine or feminine. The MAN60 carnelian silver ring for men, is another gem stone ring that has a tradition attached to the gemstone. You might be aware that the carnelian gem stone is believed to allow a person to keep a cool and balanced mine. Carnelian gems can range in color from a very pale yellowish orange, to a deeper reddish orange tone.
We did mention that color choice is one of the ways in which men choose gems for their jewelry. When it comes to mens gold or sterling silver claddagh rings, gemstones selected by men are similar to most men jewelry. Deep blue, deep green, black and even white gems like white topaz, danburite and white sapphire are popular color shades for men's claddagh gemstone rings. When it comes to red gems for mens claddagh rings, the ruby is obviously king - it also happens to be one of the most expensive gem options. Deep red garnets are another option if you are looking for red gem stone for your Kaisilver mens claddagh ring. Once you have a color choice for the gemstone in your claddagh men's ring, discuss the gem options with your jeweler. Often, it is possible to get a more modestly priced gem as compared to the gems that you know of. For example a deep london blue topaz heart shaped gemstone with a size of 9mm to 10mm, might be priced around 45 U.S$ to 65 U.S$ for the piece. However, if you wanted a 9mm heart shaped natural blue sapphire, you could easily pay around 2,500 U.S$ to 7,000 U.S$ just for the gemstone.
Birthstones could also be used as a basis for selecting the stone for your gold or sterling silver mens gem stone claddagh ring. The belief that wearing a birthstone brings good luck and fortune and wards off bad luck has been carried down for many centuries. When you choose the gem based on a birth stone, there is not much choice that you can have with gem type selection. However you can still use features like gem grade and gem size to personalize your selection. Kaisilver mens claddagh gemstone rings are available with gem size options of 8mm and 10mm. We mentioned above that a 10mm deep london blue topaz would be reasonably priced, this will be true of deep red garnet, amethyst, citrine, bloodstone, black onyx, agate or carnelian too. However if you are planning to get a sapphire gem stone claddagh ring for men, we recommend that you stay with a 8mm heart shaped gem. This is because a 9mm or 10mm blue sapphire gem would be very expensive. This will be true of gems like ruby, sapphire, tanzanite and even emerald.
Mens Plain Cladagh Ring.
The MAN110 cladagh ring for men is an interesting option for a sturdy gold or silver men's cladagh ring. This is a plain ring with no gemstone in the center. Interestingly the first cladagh ring made about 4 centuries ago was crafted in this way, it was an all metal ring. The addition of a gem in a cladagh ring makes it more attractive and depending on, how you select the gem for the ring, you could actually be enhancing the significance of the ring for you. The MAN110 Gold Or Silver Cladagh Ring for men has one advantage as far as durability and care is concerned, you need not worry about the gem in the ring getting damaged. Also remember that some gems need to be cleaned and stored carefully. You would therefore find it much easier to wear and care for this man cladagh ring with no gem. And if it is a gemstone cladagh ring that you prefer, you have some awesome selections to pick from this report. If you were wondering whether, the elimination of the gemstone drastically reduces the price of the ring, the answer needs some explanation. When you talk about gems that are moderately priced like, lapis, carnelian, amethyst, citrine, red garnet etc, the stones do not significantly add to the cost of the jewel. But this ring would surely be a lot more expensive if you picked a ruby, sapphire, emerald, tanzanite, aquamarine, tourmaline etc, for the center.
Men's Blue Topaz Claddagh Ring, The MAN120 Ring. Blue topaz offers three color shades and London Blue Topaz which happens to be the darker shade of blue, has always had a steady demand in men's jewelry. For all it's beauty, clarity and durability, london blue topaz has a very moderate price tag. Choose this blue topaz gem if you would like to ensure that, your man gemstone claddagh ring is suitable for most the shirts in your wardrobe. The good thing about blue topaz is that, the gem looks equally good in all metal colors. So whether it is a white metal (silver or white gold) men's topaz claddagh ring that you prefer or, a yellow gold ring rest assured that blue topaz would appear equally good. We do get emails from buyers asking whether the MAN120 Mens Blue Topaz Claddagh Ring, is suitable for a December birthstone ring. Here is our answer to this question, it refers to the list of gems listed as the birthstones for the month of December. Blue Zircon, Tanzanite and Blue Turquoise are the published gems listed as December birthstones, there has never been any official publication mentioning blue topaz as birthstones for the month. Having said that, we do agree that a more liberal view can be taken related to traditions and customs attributed to various gems. So make your choice based on what makes you feel good.
Amethyst, February Birthstone Claddagh Ring For Men
The MAN14 gold or silver amethyst claddagh mens ring from Kai Silver, would be a February birth stone ring if you plan to select gems based on birth stones. The medium to deep purple amethyst gem color is what men prefer. You could ofcourse order a gold or 925 silver amethyst men's claddagh ring, based on your budget. We did mention earlier that amethyst, citrine and bue topaz are quite attractively priced even in large gem sizes like 10mm heart shape. Keeping this in mind you can select the gem size for your ring based on your personal preference. You should also know that, larger gem sizes neen larger metal mountings too. This does translate to higher metal weights, something that can push up the price of the ring.
Besides individual tastes and preferences, the gem could also be selected based on durability. The claddagh mens ring needs to consider longterm durability, ease of cleaning (maintaining) and color stability of the gemstone set in the ring. Many people believe that the higher the price of a gemstone, the more sturdy and durable it is - this is not always true. For example if you compared peridot and emerald, peridot is surely more durable and tough as compared to emerald. If you had to do a price check on peridot and emerald, peridot is at least 10 to 15 times cheaper than emeralds. If you choose to order a silver or gold claddagh mens ring with tanzanite, remember that this gem stone should be kept away from hard surfaces and objects. Most gem experts suggest that you take off your tanzanite jewelry when doing something that involves a lot of physical activity. Similarly a Kunzite gem fades in light over a period of time, this is therefore a gem that does not have good color stability. We do not wish to make you a gemstone expert just by reading this report, we would however be proud if we could educate you on various issues related to gem selection for your claddagh mens gemstone ring.
