About Men's Rings
No longer just the plain bands of the past, today men's rings make a statement. Gems, textures and details add individuality and style to everything you wear. Many styles today are more substantial than the traditional 7mm width. The extra real estate offers more possibilities for design.
When choosing a men's ring, consider your lifestyle. The most important factor in the durability of your ring is the metal. The most popular choices are 14k gold, 18k gold, platinum, and silver.
Gold is both precious and durable. White gold is alloyed with other metals to make it white. Gemvara plates its white gold with rhodium for extra brightness. Platinum is a popular choice for men's rings because it is the most precious metal, naturally white and also hypoallergenic. Platinum is 95% pure, compared to 58% for 14k gold and 75% for 18k gold. Although platinum does scratch, its strength means that it doesn't wear away. When a platinum band is repolished, the metal can be moved back into place. Platinum also holds gems very securely.
Gemvara also creates men's rings in sterling silver. We use Argentium 960, the most durable silver alloy which resists tarnish without the need for rhodium plating. However, silver will show more wear over the years than other metals and is not as strong for setting gems.
To care for your ring, clean with mild dish soap: soak and gently brush to remove any dust. Rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.
With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.
You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.
To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
