A new trend in the jewelry industry is the popularity of the men's engagement ring. In the past, only the woman would wear an engagement ring
a symbol of the marriage proposal. By tradition, the man buys the engagement ring for the female as a sign of the commitment. As couples have evolved, the men's engagement ring has become a popular choice, side-by-side with the female engagement ring. At Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers of Orange County, we have embraced the new trend with a wide selection of male engagement rings that can be customized
to express your personal vision through computer-aided design technology.
Traditionally, the man buys the diamond engagement ring. He can choose to buy an engagement ring only for the woman or opt for matching rings. If the woman wants to propose to the man, then it is the woman who buys the male engagement ring. Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers have seen that most engagement rings are now bought together by the couple. This is a definite advantage because the couple can openly agree upon the style and designs that they like. These engagement rings express the creativity and spirit of the future marriage.
Whether it is the man, the woman or the couple together making the choice, several practical tips from Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers will provide a real advantage when buying men's engagement rings.
1.Matching engagement rings are the norm. Although not identical, similar engraving can bind the rings together.
2.When buying a men's engagement ring, it is essential to know the size of the man’s ring finger. The best way to know the exact ring size is to come into Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers and have it measured.
3.When it comes to men's engagement rings, men often choose to have simple wide bands. For the majority of men, the simpler, the better is the trend when it comes to men's engagement rings.
4.The man’s personality and lifestyle should be taken into consideration. The effects of wear and tear must be considered if the men's engagement ring is going to be worn every day. The more active and sporty the man is, the bulkier the ring should be. Bigger rings naturally are more durable.
Although the classic material used for wedding and engagement rings has been yellow gold, platinum and white gold settings are becoming more and more popular. Traditional beliefs did imply, however, that the wearing of gold would bring good fortune to the couple. In addition, men's engagement rings often include small diamonds or precious stones
to express the true worth of the union. As you can see from the examples shown, men's engagement rings designed by Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers come in a variety of engaging styles with striking looks.
If you want small diamonds to match the look of the bride-to-be’s diamond engagement ring, we can turn this desire into a reality for a reasonable price. By using value engineering, Ballard and Ballard Fine Jewelers can create the look you want for a men's engagement ring while keeping down the cost. Our goal is to help you custom design and create a men's engagement ring that reflects the love and commitment of the coming marriage. Most importantly, the men's engagement ring should reflect the style of the groom and the vision of the couple as a true union-to-be.BALLARD & BALLARD
