Factors Influencing Gem Selection:

  • Gemstone prices vary and some gems are very expensive in large sizes. 
  • Men generally prefer deeper colored gems for their rings. 
  • Most men would prefer sturdy gems that require nominal care. 
  • The same basic color can often be found in many different gemstones. 
  • Picking a big birthstone for a men's ring is a great option. 
  • Gems that protrude significantly are more prone to damage by impact. 
  • Be clear of your requirement for a natural gem and not a synthetic piece.

If you happen to be selecting a big gemstone for your ring based on color, it would help to know about different gemstones that have the same basic color. Simply put this would mean that, the sapphire is not the only blue gemstone available, green gems go far beyond emerald and red is a color seen in a range of gems - not just ruby. It is also important to understand that, the choice of gem colors for a men's big gemstone ring, need not be limited to red, blue and green. The world of gemstones offers some exciting colors like orange, pink, black, brown and purple. Talking about the MAN136 green tourmaline ring, you could identify at least 3 more gemstones that have a green color. Below is a list of gem colors and the popular gemstones that have that color. 

White Or Colorless Gems: White topaz, white sapphire, white quartz, danburite, white zircon and of course diamonds.

Once you have identified the gem colors for your men's big ring, you should know that color tone and shades generally vary across gemstones. For example, it is hard to confuse a green tourmaline with an emerald. A ruby can be mistaken for a spinel and vice versa but ,unlikely that a red garnet would be wrongly recognized as a ruby. We are presuming a basic knowledge about gems but, reputed jeweler should be able to advice and guide you. 

The toughness of the gemstone in a men's ring will decide just how durable and long lasting the jewel is. It is not uncommon for the large gem in a ring to be the biggest price component of the jewel. All gemstones have specific physical properties, no jewel or gem should be struck with physical force or brought into close contact with strong heat or chemicals and solvents. By knowing about the basic physical features of a gemstone, you will be able to care for the gemstone more effectively. The following information will help you get a clear idea regarding the toughness of the gem in your men's big ring. 

Toughest Gems: Ruby, sapphire and diamonds

Good Durability: Green tourmaline, pink tourmaline, aquamarine, morganite, spinel, iolite, red garnet, spessartite, amethyst, citrine, iolite

Some Care Required: Peridot, emerald, tanzanite

An interesting thing about gem pricing and gem toughness is that, a high price need not imply good toughness. A good example is emerald, the gemstone can cost 50 times (or more) more than the price of green tourmaline but, does require specific care when being worn and cleaned. It is always a good idea to take sufficient care of your ring, most of us develop a special connection to the accessories that we wear. A little care can ensure that your big gemstone ring stays in good condition for a long time.
