Rings are the most gender-neutral jewellery that there is. Still, men hesitate to put one on, especially when it comes to decorative and arty ones.
Most men will put on only one ring for their whole life - their wedding band. Another few might wear other types of rings for men like a family crest, a religious affiliation ring, or a planet-pleasing one. But men flaunting their fashion statement with rings are still hard to come by.
Thankfully, with the advent of costume jewellery online, this special tribe is growing gradually. Men have become more confident about trying out different styles when it comes to ring. Now they don't wait for their engagement or wedding to put on a ring. They have made it an active part of their wardrobe and let them be personality forward.
As with comfort, comes confusion. Which style to choose for men’s ring? How to determine ring size online? What kind of metal colour will suit me? Many question crowds and chaos ensues. Worry not! We have devised simple steps in this ring buying guide for men to help you find the right ring for your finger. Let's jump right in!
Find your kind
Start right at the basics. Determine which finger you want to wear your ring on. Mostly men go with either their pinky or their middle finger. But let that not limit your choice.
As you fix your finger, simultaneously, fix your statement. What do you want it to convey? Will it be chunky, flashy, or bold and scream your boss attitude? Or do you want it to play out your charming subtle understated self? Asking the right question will help you to figure out your design style. For example, this Football Lovers Dream Ring vibes with an active sporty lifestyle whereas this Rugged Textured Men's CZ Ring portrays a quiet sense of strength and bold charm. The latter is apt for men who are new to wearing decorative designer rings because simple textured bands with tiny studded stones won't be as loud a style statement as a metallic skull. Rings like these are versatile and can be worn both on formal and informal occasions.
Find your fit
After you have found your finger of choice, consult our sizing guide to determine the band size of the ring. Use a thin strip of paper or a thread to determine the circumference of your ring and consult the chart to check your corresponding size. If you have a ring already for the designated finger, you can calculate the inner diameter of the ring with a simple ruler as well. Match the inner diameter reading with the corresponding size from the chart, and you are set.
Besides finding the band size, you can also request to know the cross-sectional size of the ring because that will give you an idea of the ring thickness. Some buyers prefer to know this, especially if they have small-jointed fingers or are extremely finicky about their artistic choice. Ideally, finger knuckles should be at least a millimeter or two away from the top of the ring.
Find your colour
In the world of fine jewellery, rings come in different metals like gold, silver, platinum, titanium, stainless steel, etc. When it comes to premium costume jewellery brands like ours, we craft all our pieces with 925 Sterling Silver. They are available in 18k gold plating with two colour choices - Yellow Gold Plated and White Gold Plated.

Find your source
But everything said and done, how can you be assured that you are getting the right quality, value for money, choice of trendy designs and robust ethics with your every purchase? When it comes to imitation jewellery, finding the source of your jewellery is very important. After all, who wants to pay money to fund sweatshops? That's why finding the right brand is supremely important.
