Men have slightly restricted options when it comes to choosing jewellery to complement their look. In their case, less definitely speaks more, especially with rings. Rings on men draw attention and are often great conversation starters. They need to be flaunted with confidence, which everyone isn’t able to do. Rings tend to be signature pieces of jewellery, often symbolising a lot of things. So be careful about what you want to project. Choose the persona that you want to exhibit wisely before opting for a ring. Below given are certain tips to help you out.
The finger on which you wear the ring
Yes, a ring on a certain finger often gives subtle indications of your preferences or nature. For example, a ring on your little finger or thumb denotes something flashy without any traditional or religious roots or the wedding bands have been occupying the ring finger in the modern era. Index fingers aren’t a preferred choice for newbies as rings might obstruct in daily activities. However, those wanting to exhibit a family crest or something of that kind, go for this finger.
A ring in proportion to your fingers
Try to maintain a proportion with fingers while choosing rings. A person with small hands and fingers should go for small rings while someone with large hands should choose large rings to better suit them. Ignore this simple advice and your thin fingers will look weird with a bulky ring around them or a stubby, finger with a tight, thin ring.
Balancing with other accessories
When it comes to women, they have a plethora of hand accessories to choose from: bangles, bracelets, rings, hathphools, armbands, and of course rings. For men, it is simple: watches, bracelets, and rings. Don’t go overboard with the accessories that you wear along with rings. As mentioned before, rings, though subtle, attract attention. So be careful when pairing it up with watches, bracelets, etc. Don’t overcrowd the hand and look odd. There also should be a balance between the rings you wear on the same hand. Don’t wear all your accessories on the same hand. Be careful when pairing rings with bracelets. Spread them out evenly over both the hands.
The tone of the metal
Well, people often do not give this much thought but the colour of metal that you are wearing, i.e. gold or silver also goes a long way in deciding how the ring looks on your hand. People whose veins are visible through skin should prefer experimenting with silver metal, while those having a warmer skin tone (i.e. veins not visible) should opt for gold. The trick is to keep it monotone. Mix and match silver and gold properly, if you are a bold risk taker. Otherwise, stick to a single metal for a chic look.
Less is more
Last but not the least, remember that quality matters more than quantity. So even if you are wearing one ring or bracelet, it is enough to make a statement. Two or three rings spread over both the hands is also a good option and define our look.
