Let us now move on to discuss about the most popular green gems that can be seen in jewelry.
Emerald: Surely one of the most valuable green gemstones of all time, emerald is the birthstone for May. So if you wish to have a mens birthstone ring with a May birthstone, emerald would fulfill your requirements. To begin with, emerald is an expensive gem and is generally in the same price range as rubies and sapphires. A member of the beryl mineral group, this gemstone is formed over millions of years and the stress and strain of the difficult conditions in which it is formed, shows on the gem. A mens gold or 925 silver ring with this green gem, would always show visible inclusions and fissures in the gem. If you choose this green gem for your ring be ready to, give it some care and attention. The natural fissures that are always present in natural emeralds, make it a bit weak. You will therefore need to ensure that, the gem does not get physically struck by a hard object or surface. Almost all emeralds including those priceless pieces preserved in strongly guarded museums, are treated with natural oils to improve their color, clarity and lustre. With this treatment comes a small requirement - avoid exposing your mens emerald ring to sources of heat or strong chemicals and solvents. You really should ensure that the oils in the emerald are not damaged or forced out of the gem.
Peridot: This is a green to yellowish-green gem from the olivine mineral family. This gemstone which happens to be the birthstone for the month of August, is very popular with men and ladies. Known for many thousand years, peridot was a gemstone that was often mistaken for emerald - you might have heard of how some of Cleopatra's valuable 'emeralds' turned out to be peridot when they were tested. When it comes to mens rings with green gems, peridot is an interesting case study from the view point of price. The earliest peridot gems were mined in Egypt and a long time later, the world was introduced to some amazing peridot gemstones from Burma. With almost no fresh mine output of peridot gems coming from Egypt and supply of good quality from Burma coming down to a trickle - the industry had to find new sources for this very popular green gemstone. Most of the peridot gems that enter the gems and jewelry markets these days come from China and Arizona (U.S). Like in many other cases, the industry places high importance on peridot that originates from specific mining locations. This translates to high price tags for peridot coming from Egypt or Burma. To give you an idea of just how high the premium on peridot gems from these locations is, here is an example. A 10x8mm oval good quality peridot gem from Arizona or China with a yellowish-green color could cost around 100 U.S$ (per piece) in the retail market. The same peridot gem size coming from Egypt or Burma with very little or no yellow hints, could cost as much as 250 U.S$ to 350 U.S$ for the piece. Unless you have a lavish financial layout for your mens green gemstone ring, we would suggest that you do not worry much about the origin of the peridot gem. Give attention to overall clarity and uniformity of color - a slight yellowish tone to the green actually seems to add some extra spice to the gemstone.
Tourmaline: This is one gemstone that is found in a dazzling range of colors. A truly spectacular phenomenon can be observed when a single crystal of tourmaline shows more than one color. Green tourmaline offers an excellent option for a green gemstone to be set in a mens ring. The deep olive to forest green color of tourmaline, is something that most men like. Although many jewelers club tourmaline (of all colors) in the category of October birthstones fact is that, it was only pink tourmaline that was added as an option for the October birthstone in 1996. Tourmaline is a tough gem and will not call for too much attention when being worn or stored. Having said that we would still suggest that your mens tourmaline ring be kept away from environments where it could be hit or be hit by, hard surfaces and objects. The price of your mens green gemstone ring with green tourmaline, can be quite significant. While the gemstone is priced much lower than ruby, sapphire or emerald - the steady price increase of tourmaline has reduced the affordability of this green gem. For a mens ring with green tourmaline we would suggest that, you keep your expectations on gem size in control. A green tourmaline in the 2 to 3.5 carat range is where the limit for a 'modestly' priced gem would border. Just remember that the color of green tourmaline would be fairly dark, the deep color might also appear even darker if the gem is large with a proportionately significant depth (thickness).
Jade: While green jade remains very popular, this gemstone is actually found in other colors like yellow, black, white, lavendar and read too. Choosing this green gemstone for a mens ring, is surely going to provide you with a tough and durable gem. Though the hardness rating on the Mohs scale for jade is not very high, it is the insternal structure of jade that makes it strong and durable. When man first came to learn of the strength of this gemstone, he used the stone to make weapons, tools and arrow heads. The jewelry applications of jade came in much later. Most of you might have seen jade with a fine green color evenly spread on the gemstone - going by appearance this is fine quality jade. But not many people are aware that more than 90% of such fine quality jade gems are treated to enhance their color. The point is that natural jade when found with a fine green color that is uniformly spread on the stone, is very expensive. The widely used and accepted treatment of dyeing natural jade, makes the stone with a fine color available at an affordable price. So if you need a mens green jade gemstone ring but, would not like to spend an extravagant figure on the jewel - consider dyed natural jade as an option. There is no doubt that many wear gemstones for the tradition and metaphysical properties attributed to them. When this is the case, it is quite common for the buyer to expect an untreated jade gem. And if you want to get a natural untreated jade gemstone at a moderate price - you can go for natural jade stone that does not have the perfect color and shows some interesting portions of color zoning. Just appreciate the fact that nature created the gem that way. One important thing that you should keep in mind is that jade, covers two gems - jadeite and nephrite. The darker green shades of nephrite which can sometimes shows blackish streaks is preferred by many men.
Other Gems: Here are a few more green gems that you could consider for a mens gold or 925 silver ring. Sapphire a tough and popular gemstone is sometimes found with a green color. You can evaluate this green gemstone for a mens ring - expect the price to be fairly high. The garnet family has two green members, unfortunately both of these are very rare in larger sizes and therefore, command a premium price when the gem size moves above 1 to 1.5 carats. Demantoid garnet is one green gem that boasts of a fire that out does the diamond. Tsavorite garnet is named after the African national park where it was first found. Prices for Tsavorite are high and once again, smaller sizes are recommended for reasons of price. While malachite mens rings are not very rare, this green gemstone does not come high on the durability ratings.
Avoid: Lets be honest and tell you why we feel that the gems about to be mentioned here, are not very suitable for mens green gemstone rings. Green chrome diopside and even green apatite can appear very attractive. However these gems are low on durability and would be better off if set in earrings or pendants where, the degree of wear and tear is much lower. One of the loud sales pitching web and television channels, even sells green gemstone rings for men with fluorite - a gem that is wear and prone to chipping and scratching.
The above report will give you a good idea of gems that are suitable for mens green gem stone rings. Keep in mind that, some amount of care and attention should be given to all jewelry. We have considered only natural gems but, there are many buyers who opt for synthetic gems manufactured in a factory. There is nothing wrong with imitation or synthetic gems as long as you know what you are getting and pay the right price for it. We have compiled a comprehensive report with some excellent suggestions for mens green gemstone rings. You can review the report at http://www.kaisilver.com/mens-green-gemstone-rings-th-ks-0356.htm
Men's Green Jade Rings
Jade is found in a spectrum of colors but it is green jade that generates the most demand. Two gems namely nephrite and jadeite, are together given the same generic name, jade. When most of us talk about a men's green jade gemstone ring we refer to jadeite. For thousands of years, it was nephrite jade that was in demand, few people had heard about the gorgeous jadeite jade from Burma. Fine quality jadeite is very expensive, the price of these gems can match the price of diamonds - it is natural, untreated with a flawless green color that is uniformly spread all through the gem, the trade refers to such jadeite material as Imperial Jade. A men's green gemstone ring with Imperial Jade would be very expensive and most buyers, would not want to splurge that amount on a jewel. Interestingly most of the remaining jadeite that is treated by dyeing the color, this helps enhance the perceived value of the gem. Working directly with gem dealers in the Burmese mining areas, Kaisilver can procure the finest jadeite for you on request but, that is something that does not interest most buyers.

Men's Emerald Ring
If you wish to wear a men's green gemstone ring with an emerald gem, there are some important things that you should know. Emeralds have a few characteristics that need to be considered when, designing and crafting jewels with this green gemstone. Firstly, emerald is an expensive gem and prices per carat move up steeply as the gem size increases. This is important when it comes to men's emerald rings because, men generally prefer to wear larger gems in the 3-6 carat size in their rings. The other interesting and important fact about emerald is that, the durability and toughness of the gem is not as impressive as its price would suggest. Generally a larger gem gets more exposure and is therefore more likely to get struck by impact, this is relevant in the case of emerald. Keeping these factors in mind, a men's green emerald gemstone that uses modestly sized gems and has a design which, reduces the chances of the gem getting physically struck, will be easier to wear and maintain. While we at Kaisilver could easily custom make a men's emerald ring with a large bulky emerald, we have shown the MAN71 ring to explain how a researched design can deliver an optimized ring ... more.
