Big Gemstone Ring For Men

Men prefer big rings and it follows that gemstone rings are generally ordered with big gems. There are some issues involved when designing and pricing a men's big gemstone ring. It is best to discuss these issues by taking an actual example, so we will refer to the MAN06 men's ring. The ring is shown here with a large gem but, the discussion would apply to any gemstone.

Carat is the unit of weight for gemstones and most gemstones, are priced per carat. You could say that a gemstone in the 11x9mm or above size is big. The aquamarine in the above ring is a 12x10mm oval gemstone, this is a big gem by any standards. A men's large gemstone ring with a gem this big, would require sufficient budget allocation. The price of a gem is not a simple calculation involving price per carat and weight, the price of a gem rises sharply as the stone size increases. Gemstone prices depend on the type of gemstone and even within the same gem type, prices can differ based on a number of factors. A big aquamarine gem might be priced lower than a blue sapphire of the same size but, would still have a clear impact on the price tag. On the other hand a big men's ring with gems like blue topaz, citrine, amethyst and red garnet, would be much more affordable. To give you a very useful tip, when choosing a gemstone based mainly on color, learn about all gem types that offer the same base color. For example the range of blue gemstones encompasses a larger family and not just emerald. Gems like tourmaline, period, jade and even sapphire can all be found in a few shades of green. 

There are some gemstones where, the choice of a big ring is very remote. As an example, a men's big gemstone ring like the MAN06 ring, with a natural tsavorite gemstone would most likely never be found or never fit an average budget. Gemstones like tsavorite and demantoid (both garnets) are extremely rare in sizes beyond 9x7mm. Almost 80% of these gemstones that enter the markets are sized below 6mm. And if you ever came across these gems in sizes of around 12x10mm, the gem would cost a fortune and would most probably find its way into a reputed museum. You will need to make a few decisions in this case. If you are keen on going for a men's tsavorite or demantoid ring, work on a design concept that features a smaller gem size. But if you give importance to the large gemstone size, consider other gems that would be more price friendly.  

We now move on to a select group of gems that, can be found in large sizes but, would be priced exorbitantly. Interestingly these gems define a 'bigness' of their own. If you wore a men's sapphire ring with a 10x8mm oval blue sapphire gem, you can comfortably refer to the ring as a 'big sapphire ring'. To remain in a budget friendly price range, 9x7mm oval might be a better choice. This price and size logic will hold true for sapphire, ruby, tanzanite and emerald. 

Besides the price and availability of large gems, a big men's gemstone ring will also need to consider the durability of the gemstone. It is quite obvious that a larger gemstone is more likely to be exposed to environments where it can get struck by physical impact. A gemstone like emerald will generally be in the upper price range but, the physical composition of the stone makes it a bit more vulnerable to damage. Since emerald is not a very durable gem and needs a fair amount of care and caution, the design for a men's emerald ring should, keep that in mind. Smaller sizes and the right gem setting can help, protect the gemstone. 

On the other hand rubies and sapphires are two of the most sturdy gemstones to be set in jewelry. There will be cases where you just have to choose a specific gem, even after knowing of its lower durability rating. When this is the case, you will need to show some care and caution when wearing the jewel. 

We have spoken so far about big gemstones for men's rings but, a ring will have a number of components and not just gems. A men's big gemstone ring will need sufficient metal weight to make it sturdy and long lasting. The type of setting used to mount the gemstone and even the workmanship, will play a part in defining the toughness of the jewel.
