Men have been wearing rings since before the 8th century BC. In ancient times, Egyptian men wore rings for personal identification and also as a signature. These rings were similar to present-time signet rings and would be pressed into ink or wax to stamp one’s seal of approval.
A similar trend was also present in Medieval and Renaissance Britain. Signet rings were used for political identification and even indicated professional rank, job type, and social class.
These days, there an increasing emphasis on men’s fashion and accessories. It’s no wonder the 21st-century man feels the need to find his own unique sense of style. From bold wedding bands to leather bracelets, the modern man can experiment with different looks till he finds the perfect one to show off his fashion prowess. And men's rings have once again become the trend.
Like every other type of jewellery, rings come in various styles, colours, and materials. You’ll find wedding bands, signet rings, and even rings made for your little finger. The most common rings are usually made from either gold or silver. However, you’ll also find high-end rings made from other precious metals like rose, white, or yellow gold, and even platinum.
Trying to decide what finger to wear a ring on can be almost as difficult as deciding where to get a tattoo. Some people believe that there’s a basic set of rules when it comes to ring-wearing. For instance, only your wedding ring should go on your ring finger, and signet rings should be worn on the little finger.
But forget about those rules. Simply measure your fingers, try on a few, and go for any finger that feels comfortable. Similarly, with so many options, shopping for the perfect men’s ring can be long and gruelling. Luckily you have this guide. Here you’ll find men’s rings that are not only affordable but also stylish as well.
