Mens rings and rings in general, have traditionally been seen as an outward symbol of allegiance or authority. A king would grant his approval by stamping the insignia seal with his royal ring. A married man tells the world his ‘taken’ status and a college ring signifies identity with the Alma Mater or a team. While rings are all of one shape (circular) to fit the finger, the exterior finishes, etchings, and designs vary from ring to ring. In Modern times, there are a lot of cool rings for men that not only hold significance but also communicate style and fashion, and the options can seem endless. Shopping around can really help you see the variety of rings out there, but once you have found a designer or unique seller that you like, stick with them. When shopping around for a ring, select one that fits your style, and delivers the message that you intend. That’s the essence of the calibrated male. That’s what I try and do at thecoolershade.com.A popular material for Mens rings is steel or polished steel like stainless steel. Steel is an excellent choice in metal that is used in every field, from welding, engineering, and construction which testifies to its robust nature. Unlike precious metals such as gold and silver, which over time will change due to the softness of the metal, steel does not easily scratch, bend, or dent. Steel is rigid, and will hold its shape for years without warping. Mens steel rings can also be finished to have an exterior color like a white-gold, platinum, or silver. The exterior can also be overlaid with a darker contrasting color or resin on the design which will serve to show class as well as catch someone’s eye. Cool rings for men are often made of steel with different designs and they are inexpensive while communicating style and class. Mens rings for the post modern world almost always include an interesting design or pattern on them. For an earthier or nature-like appearance, celtic-inspired designs are a great choice. Traditional symbols, simple or elaborate such as cross steel rings, or the yin yang steel ring are very popular as are more abstract designs such as lightning bolts and wavy lines that catches the eye. Other earth-inspired designs have a Greek design. Greek artwork has a classical and timeless appeal that lends its wear a look of refinement and taste. The shapes are bolder than Celtic designs and communicate strength and steadiness that all cool rings for men should have. If you want a more extreme or hardcore look, then you’ll want to go with tribal inspired artwork on a plain or resin finished ring. Tribal designs have somewhat languid lines that end in pointed places that could be on the cover of your favorite rock album. The finish can be black resin with a silver design, but a silver finish with a black design is just as popular. The ring’s thickness and width can also be an important part of selecting the ring. If you have larger hands, smaller bands will look out of proportion to your fingers and build. In this case choose thicker bands for a better match. The same goes if your hands are smaller. Thinner fingers and smaller hands are a better fit with thinner bands. Mens rings with thicker bands will look out of place on thin fingers, making the wearer look like the ring isn’t theirs or was borrowed from a friend. Try on a few rings and see which band looks best, this will give you an idea of what the appropriate thickness will be. All rings available at thecoolershade.com are neither large nor small. They are a blend of size, width and style designed to give the manly look yes not be too large as to look grotesque.
Cool rings for men communicate both identity and status and can be a topic of interesting conversation when meeting new people.
