Rings for men are increasingly in demand by current jewelry trends, although Most men will probably only wear one ring in their adult life: the marriage ring. A smaller percentage of men will wear a ring with personal meaning for much of their life: like a ring with a family seal, a ring with some religious or cultural emblem.
Only a small percentage of men will ever wear some type of ring for aesthetics, trying to improve their image. Regardless of the different opinions, you can be sure – yes, men can wear rings if they want. A host of current jewelry styles may not fit most men’s tastes, but they don’t there is nothing inherently problematic about the object itself. Rings have been both male and female throughout much of human history.
The two main objections to men’s rings are generally:
- Make it very feminine.
- Make it too flashy.
In any case, these objections refer to the design of the ring in question, not to the use of it.
Some rings have more symbolism than others. We can generally categorize men’s rings into: those that have a purely aesthetic function, or those that represent a symbol that identifies their wearer; or those that perform both functions.
Religious and cultural rings
There are no major religions in the world that explicitly require the use of rings, but many encourage it for specific roles or relationships.
The marriage covenant is the most familiar example to most of us: it is not explicitly demanded in the Christian tradition, but has evolved over time in a cultural expectation with a lot of symbolism behind it.
Rings have been used to denote group and family membership for thousands of years.
Currently, the most common examples are fraternal rings and class rings. Some military personnel may also wear a ring denoting their branch of service.
These are cultural, show a specific belief or adherence, and tend to be aesthetic. Most of the men who wear this type of rings, enjoy that feeling of pride when feeling represented with a certain symbol.
The Family Rings
Family Rings do not necessarily have to be an engraved coat of arms, or similar emblem, although many are. Rather, the purpose of a family ring is to remind the wearer of that special and unique feeling for their family and their history. It may be a ring of any style that an ancestor wore, representing a certain shape with personal meaning.
Rings of personalized and exclusive design
This is without a doubt the most effective option for the man who wants a unique accessory, adapted to his style.
Generally the ring selection is much more limited for men than women, because of this, it may take them longer to find something that suits their personal style. and that it is of sufficient quality.
