The formal foundation of the wedding is first laid through the engagement that brings together the prospective bride and groom for the eternal blissful union. This custom is therefore a cherished one and is taken care of in all the cultures of the world. Some icons and traditions decorate this special occasion and generate wholesomeness. Engagement rings serve as one such icon and have become almost the norm of the modern societies. The bride and groom exchange their engagement rings to depict their love and affection and moreover their desire to start a new life together. Often, the bridal jewellery including her rings are the much discussed ones while we find less of the talk on groom’s adorations. What are the essential attributes of the engagement ring for the groom? What tips could be useful? Let’s look into the valuable ones!
Before looking into the tips on groom’s engagement rings, it is important to note that his charm is spread through his manly spirit and the overall masculine personality! This is very much different from the feminine feel that is adored by the lady almost as her jewel. The tips also therefore get different in a definite way!
A definite ingredient of elegance must be there
While choosing an engagement ring for him, never forget to look out for the element of ‘elegance’ so that it could suitably match with his overall personality. A groom’s ring could not be girly after all. Without getting into the intricacies, a first look always reveals the quotients in demand. If these are fetched then go for the finer ones like the design and studdings done on the ring.
Less of colours but rubies could be good
In consonance with the above tip of elegance appeal, an engagement ring that is less on colour and gaudiness should be chosen. There should be less use of colours and less of differentiation in terms of materials. However, it is noteworthy to mention that gems of special appeal could be always used. Apart from the diamonds, rubies are considered best for matching the man. These are deep red in hue and complement the yellow gold as also the white gold.
Try the modern designs that suits his outdoor life – should not be too bulky!
Designs determine the overall look and feel of the engagement ring. The traditional men’ engagement rings were generally made as very royal and had a central raised platform that was generally rectangular or sometimes oval. This platform was used as a setting for the stone – diamond or ruby. Now more of the designs have been offered in high finesse. The bands are the emergent designs because these match the daily routines without creating any hassles (as in case of very royal types of rings). You can have those with gold tone detailing or the titanium detailing. You can also have the specialties like the titanium bands.
Try to match his personality
The metals and design plus the studding would offer the clues as how to match his personality. Any of the metals like gold, rose/red gold and white gold can be decided upon.
