Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend

Can men wear diamond rings?

Just get straight to the point: yes! Of course, men can wear diamond rings. First of all, there is the traditional wedding band. But the signet ring also falls under diamond jewelry for men.

This is practically the piece of jewelry man are most happy to wear: the wedding ring. The wedding ring one does not need a lot of explaining: it is the ring that shows your commitment to your loved one. It is not uncommon for men to wear a wedding ring with one or more diamonds in it. After all, the diamond
represents strength and love. Isn’t that what marriage is all about? Wedding rings for men come in all sorts and shapes. Some contain one (large) diamond, like a solitaire ring. 

Others feature a cluster of diamonds. But there are also men who prefer something less flashy and rougher. They can go for black diamond rings. The robust and sturdy look is something many men can get behind. Diamond wedding rings for men often contain a brilliant cut or the princess cut. The brilliant is an all-time traditional favorite. But the square princess cut also increases in popularity. We see that all square or angular diamond cuts work well in engagement rings for men.

From the Daily Mail in 2011:

If ever there was a sign that times are a-changing, it may be the rising popularity of men's engagement rings.'Management' rings are said to gaining popularity among heterosexual couples who have a forward-thinking outlook on relationships, with equality-minded men happy to make the same public 'pre-commitment' as women.From online jewelers to local boutiques, U.S. retailers are more often providing engagement options for men as well as women.Amanda Gizzi from the Jewelry Information Center recently told GalTime.com that 'engagement rings for men are a new concept here in the United States.'Men and women both wear engagement rings in a lot of countries around the world. For the United States it has never been our tradition. Therefore, it is a foreign concept to most people.'

Personal Note:  I wear a diamond  solitaire ring almost all the time when out.  I purchased it in Palm Beach from a prestigious jewelry store on Worth Avenue several seasons ago.  It was summer and I may have been the only sale of the day.  I made the owner very happy that afternoon.  

I always get compliments and oddly the most on airline flights. The flight attendants on many flights notice and either smile or comment.

  1. My older son is gay. When he became engaged to his now husband he was able to get the engagement ring of his grandmother. He had a jeweler take out the diamond and had it repurposed into an engagement ring for his husband.
