Diamond Jewely for Men Can Be a Good Choice

By Ernst Ralborg

The ladies have it easy when it comes to choosing diamond pendants and necklaces. There are very few designs that are out the window when it comes to jewelry for women, and there are tons of designers out there that are lined up, waiting to cater to women.

But what about the men who want to get in on the diamond action? What designs options do they have? There are some men's jewelry stereotypical pendants, like crosses and nuggets, but when a man wants to step out of that territory, what kind of options do they have? Where can they find operational men's jewelry?

Custom Jewelry Designs for Men

The answer that men may be looking for to solve their jewelry dilemma may be custom jewelry design. By going to a custom jewelry designer, men can get exactly what they want, exactly how they want it. Designs are limited only by the man's imagination, from a simple bezel cut setting that holds his mother's diamond to something else entirely - they can be as unique and as wild (or not) as the man wants them to be. Who says men can't even wear engagement rings?

Another great thing a specialist jewelry designer can do is to take a pre-existing symbol that has some meaning for the man, like a symbol of the company for which he works or some organization to which he belongs and then incorporate that into a jewelry design. From geometric shapes and freeform shapes to pre-drawn designs, custom made jewelry has very few limits. If you are a little short on ideas, get some input from the jewelry designer, who should be able to give you some great inspiration for putting the piece together.

Picking the Right Stone

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but there is no reason men can't enjoy keeping the company of a nice looking diamond. If the traditional white diamond feels a little too girly for a guy, go for a colored diamond. Although these colored diamonds are called browns and blacks, you can find them in any color under the sun. A non white diamond may be just the ticket for adding a little bit of masculinity to your jewelry design.

More and more men are wearing jewelry these days, and there is no reason why you can't be one of them. There is lots of jewelry that is created with men in mind, and if you can't find exactly what you want, you can always use one of your own custom designs. Why should the girls have all the fun? - 16651
