Mens Comfort Fit Rings vs. Traditional Fit Rings

Have you ever noticed how different various rings can feel on your finger, even when they’re made from the same material? There is an easy explanation for this difference: interior fit. When it comes to mens rings, there are two main types of interior fit: traditional fit and comfort fit. Here’s a quick comparison of comfort fit versus traditional fit rings.

Comfort Fit and Traditional Fit Mens Rings

  • Traditional fit is an older type of interior fit, while comfort fit is a more recent innovation.

  • Traditional fit mens rings are also sometimes referred to as standard fit rings, and have a more squared off interior.

  • Comfort fit mens rings have a significantly more rounded interior than traditional fit rings, and tend to put less pressure on the finger.

  • Because of their domed interior shape, comfort fit mens rings utilize more material, and as a result can cost more than otherwise similar traditional fit men’s rings.

  • Comfort fit mens rings fit fingers differently than traditional fit mens rings. Shoppers are advised to have their finger measured specifically for a comfort fit band, as they may wear half a size smaller than what they wear in a traditional fit band.

  • Resizing for both types of mens rings depends primarily on the material used.

 

Jewellery Care and Cleaning

Many customers think they need to go to a brick and mortar jewellery store to have their wedding rings and jewellery items professionally cleaned, but it’s actually quite simple to care for your jewellery at home. Here are some easy and affordable tips on how to keep your mens rings and jewellery looking as clean and sparkling as the day you bought them.

 

Basic Jewellery Care

  • Most materials can be easily cleaned with a homemade solution of warm water and a mild dish soap. Simply apply the soapy solution to the jewellery item using a soft cloth, rinse, and pat dry with another soft cloth.

  • There are a number of well-performing store bought cleaners for jewellery, like Tarn-X and Brasso. However, before applying any cleansing solution to jewellery, always make sure to double-check if the jewellery material has any special requirements or exclusions. If you are unsure, you can always do a small spot test on a hidden section of the jewellery.

  • An old toothbrush is a great tool for getting into crevices of intricate designs or for cleaning gemstones like diamonds. Simply use it in place of a soft cloth to apply your cleansing solution, and then follow the same rinse and drying steps.

  • Jewellery care isn’t just about cleaning – make sure to carefully store jewellery items when you’re not wearing them, preferably in their own jewellery cases or bags so that they won’t rub or bang against each other.

  • In addition to safely storing your jewellery items, take care when you’re wearing them. Most materials should not be exposed to harsh chemicals (like household cleaners), and are best left off when performing physically exerting tasks, jumping in a pool or hot tub, or taking a shower.
 

Mens Gold Rings

Often considered to be the most traditional choice for mens wedding bands, gold rings offer a timelessly elegant and luxurious look. Gold has been treasured for thousands of years starting with the Ancient Egyptians due to its incomparable colour and superior malleability. 

 

Today mens gold rings can be found in a number of colours, karat grades, styles and designs. A higher karat grade indicates the presence of more pure gold, and usually results in a higher price tag. Thus, mens gold rings in 10K gold tend to be the most affordable, 18K gold rings are amongst the most luxurious, and highly popular 14K gold rings offer a balance of price and quality.

Facts About Gold

  • Gold is the only naturally occurring yellow metal in existence.

  • Because it is naturally soft, gold must be alloyed with another metal to increase its durability.

  • Mens gold rings are measured in karat purity and are most frequently seen in 10K gold, 14K gold and 18K gold varieties.

  • The most popular colours for mens gold rings are yellow gold, white gold and rose gold.

  • Mens gold rings can be hypoallergenic depending on the alloy used.

  • The alloying material for mens gold rings depends on the desired karat grade, colour and the preference of the manufacturer.

  • Mens gold rings are easily resized and removed in case of an emergency.

 

Mens Tungsten Rings vs. Mens Titanium Rings

Tungsten mens rings and titanium mens rings are popular choices when it comes to hip hop jewellery pieces. A lot of folks are wearing them, but choosing between titanium and tungsten rings can be a bit hard. Everyone has to face the difficult choices in jewellery designs at one point or another – silver or gold, diamonds or rubies; but the ultimate decision always comes down to the quality of the pieces. Of course, gold is known to be a better metal than silver, but sometimes silver offers a better effect in your style – it all depends on the day and the gear you’re wearing. Diamonds really look good with silvers and platinum, offering you more bling to your wear. So now what about tungsten rings and titanium rings? Which is the best for men's jewellery? Well, it all depends on the eye of the beholder.

 

Mens Tungsten Rings

With tungsten mens rings, you have a precious metal that can withstand the worldly elements as well as wear and tear. It definitely outlasts its counterpart in many factors. First, here is a little more about tungsten rings. They are made of a metal that is hard and dense, and doesn’t melt until reaching temperatures as high as 6,100 degrees Fahrenheit; you should know that this is the highest melting point when it comes to all metals. Tungsten mens rings are much harder than steel – five times harder to be exact. They are tough and can withstand a lot.

If you decide to go with tungsten rings, you won’t have to worry about the bling effect going away or scratches and scuffs messing up your iced out gear. Many people have seen their shiny tungsten rings last for years on end. When buying tungsten rings, make sure that it contains carbide, this is what makes it scratch-proof. You might consider a tungsten bracelet to match your tungsten ring.

 

Mens Titanium Rings

Titanium mens rings, on the other hand, are known for their strength – even car manufacturers have used it for their engines (as well as tungsten). Out of all the metals, including tungsten rings, titanium has the highest ratio between density and strength. It too is stronger than steel, but is much lighter. Titanium rings have corrosion resistance against oxygen, so it lasts long. It isn’t that resistant to scratches and scuffs, so that’s definitely something to keep in mind while shopping for your mens jewellery as well as titanium bracelets.

If you want bling that will stay shiny for decades to come, tungsten rings is the winner. If you accidentally run your ring over in the driveway, no worries – it will still be as good as new. Neither tungsten rings nor titanium rings have reaction to your skin (as long as there is no cobalt). You don’t have to worry about titanium rings or tungsten rings bending over time, but there is a difference in weight; titanium rings have a lighter metal than tungsten rings.

 

Mens Tisten Rings

The inspiration for TISTEN was derived from two of the most popular ring types available today, tungsten and titanium. Both are used extensively in the jewellery industry, and they have long been praised for their durability, attractiveness, and low cost compared to other precious metals. Tungsten is the element with the highest density, so you are guaranteed a tough product that can last a near lifetime. The jack-of-all-trades titanium is a fixture in several notable fields, such as medicine and aerospace engineering, and it is rapidly gaining popularity in the jewellery industry as well. Its light weight, luster, and permanence provided consumers with everything you can ask for from a ring.

As impressive as they both are, now you can have the best of both worlds in one single product! A scratch-resistant, hypo-allergenic piece of jewellery whose endurance is matched only by the classy, stylish designs they are made in. The patented ratio of tungsten and titanium creates a symbiosis that brings out the best in each other. You don't have to wait, the next generation of mens rings is here!

 

Mens Sterling Silver Rings  

Sterling silver is an excellent option for those seeking white metal rings who don’t have the budget for platinum, white gold or palladium. Sterling silver’s natural malleability lends itself well to a number of designs, and makes it ideal as a setting for gemstones like diamonds. While sterling silver is not completely tarnish or oxidization-resistant, it is easily cleaned, and higher grade sterling alloys like Argentium silver offer greater durability.

What is Sterling Silver?

  • Sterling silver is specifically an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloying material by mass.

  • Most items of sterling silver jewellery are hypoallergenic depending on the alloy used, the most common alloying material being copper.

  • Not only is sterling silver hypoallergenic, but silver has antibacterial properties, and can be used as a preventative measure against infection.

  • Silver was once considered by ancient peoples to be second in value only to gold.

  • Many items of sterling silver jewellery have a hallmark to identify the material.

  • Due to silver’s extreme malleability, sterling silver rings are easily resized

 

                       

Mens Platinum Rings  

The height of luxury, platinum is generally the rarest and most expensive material used in jewellery. Naturally white and lustrous, platinum is undeniably beautiful, but its positive qualities go far beyond surface appearances. Platinum is naturally dense and durable, and extremely resistant to corrosion and tarnish. Platinum’s high price is in large part due to its rarity and the difficulty involved with its mining and extraction. The exclusivity of platinum rings makes them a must-have for those who want only the finest things in life.

Platinum Facts

  • Platinum rings are generally available in 90% or 95% purity grades (by weight, not mass), usually reflected with the hallmarks 900 and 950 respectively.

  • Platinum is considered to be a noble metal due to its superior corrosion resistance.

  • Platinum has the unique quality of not losing surface volume when scratched; instead, material is moved about the surface, creating an antiqued patina with repeated wear.

  • King Louis XV of France once declared platinum to be the only metal fit for a king.

  • Platinum is both malleable and ductile, allowing it to be formed into a number of intricate designs.

  • Platinum is hypoallergenic and appropriate for those with skin allergies.

  • Platinum rings can easily be resized, though it may require adding more platinum.

                                   

Mens Steel Rings, Pendants and Bracelets 

 

Stainless steel could easily be considered the original contemporary jewellery material, long pre-dating other popular contemporary materials like titanium and tungsten carbide. The scope of stainless steel benefits is impressive: stainless steel is durable, easy to maintain and offers some of the best pricing on the market for men’s rings and jewellery. Stainless steel is available in several grades, although the highest quality grade for jewellery is 316L. All of Man Up Jewellery's stainless steel rings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces are made from 316L surgical steel.

What is Stainless Steel?

  • Stainless steel is made from an alloy of steel and chromium, the latter of which lends stainless steel its incredible tarnish resistance.

  • Despite its considerable hardiness, stainless steel is one of the most affordable jewellery materials on the market.

  • Stainless steel is available in a number of different grades, the most preferable of which for jewellery for durability reasons is 316L.

  • Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and safe for allergic skin.

  • Because of the strength of the material, stainless steel rings are not resizable - however, their incredibly low price point makes it easy to replace a stainless steel ring if need be.

  • Stainless steel rings can be removed in case of an emergency using a jeweller’s saw or bolt cutters.
