Gold rings are not simply gold rings, they come with options. There are white gold rings, yellow gold rings, 9k gold, 18k gold… etc. The difference between them should be understood before making a decision as to which to buy. Gold rings are quite malleable due to pure gold’s softness. It is so soft in fact that pure gold is very difficult to fashion into a ring and it scratches very easily. The flexible nature of gold states that gold can be shaped into some really great designs.
With online jewellery shopping, gold rings for men can be found at aenormous range of prices and styles, and so you are almost certain to find a ring you like at an affordable price.Both yellow gold and white gold are alloys. Yellow gold is made from a mix of pure gold and other metals such as copper and zinc. White gold on the other hand is made from pure gold and other white metals such as silver and palladium.Yellow and white gold are also both available in different carats, the carat is a measure of the purity of the gold used.
Rings designs for mens are generally much simpler than women’s rings. They rarely contain gemstones and where they do their presence is subtle. There are two main varieties; band rings and signet rings, and these can come in four flavors; silver, gold, titanium and platinum. Silver rings have always been popular due to their relatively low cost and the range of styles in which they are available. Designer rings such as this are highly fashionable and readily available at affordable prices; an ideal gift by anyone’s standards.
Titanium is approx. 99% pure; it is long wearing and has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. If the man you are looking to buy a ring for is very active, titanium rings might be a good choice; they will last much longer than softer metals such as gold and silver.Nowadays, men have considered diamonds too as their own choice of ring selections such as for wedding rings or anytime rings.
Platinum is very pure and very rare, it is much denser than gold making it much heavier and stronger. The extra weight naturally increases the price of the platinum ring, and it’s stubbornness to be shaped adds to crafting labor costs.Platinum is a white metal and so has an appearance similar to white gold. Platinum however is exceptionally hardy and so will retain its appearance for years to come.
With the vast range of golden rings for mens available, the best advice would be to first decide what type of ring you want to buy; be it a band or signet ring, then choose the metal; silver, titanium, gold or platinum. Finally, you can settle on a price you are comfortable with spending and go shopping with that in mind. This will help you focus on just the rings you are looking for and ultimately allow you to come at a decision.
