Rings To Match Every Man’s Style

Gemvara is happy to have rings that match every man’s style. With our new arrivals in men’s rings, we have contemporary, vintage, or classic men’s bands sure to fit your men’s perfect idea of a ring.

We also know that it can be hard to get a man to wear jewelry. We at Gemvara want to help you fit your man to his stylish and comfortable wedding band.

Your Man: Anti-Jewelry

For the man who is anti-jewelry, the Sleek Band (4mm thick) is perfect in 14K or 18K Rose Gold. A soft subtle gold, this band blends into a darker skin tone and isn’t as prominent as silver or platinum.

Your Man: Romantic

There is nothing more romantic then an infinity symbol. The Men’s Infinity Band promises forever in the pattern of infinity symbols.  In a bright silver, this ring is romantic, soft, and beautiful.

Your Man: Show-off

The jewelry wearer will probably be wearing more than one band. Make his band stand out with the Two Lane Ring. A larger ring, the two lanes each feature three gemstones (perhaps in both of your birthstones?). In a brilliant gold, this ring is brilliant and bold on his ring finger.

Which ring best represents your man?

Interpreting the Trends: Black and Navy Blue

Fall is just around the corner which can only mean one thing, shopping the fall trends.  This year, rules are being broken as the runways were sprinkled with black and navy pairings.  This long forbidden matchup has been blown out of the water by fashionistas everywhere.  This trend evokes a “dark romance” with different hues and textures making it perfect for date night wear.  You can incorporate this trend into your wardrobe long before the weather turns cold by stocking up on some beautiful Gemvara pieces that are sure to make a statement long before your long sleeves and opaque tights.

One Piece, Three Ways: Racetrack Ring

A statement ring is an easy way to take an outfit to the next level and the Racetrack Ring by Gemvara is exactly does exactly that in these three outfits, taking the ring from work, to a casual weekend, and a wedding reception.  This customized ring features a large green amethyst gem encircled with diamonds and set in palladium.  The light green plays well with every color, especially pinks and other greens.  Palladium is a little known precious metal but an excellent choice for settings since it is naturally white and will never tarnish as well as being a hypoallergenic metal.

 

Work with Gemvara Racetrack Ring

Wear this ring to work to spice up a basic black dress.  Add a coral blazer which is the perfect shade for summer, but will keep you warm in an overly air conditioned office.  Throw your keys into a chic green clutch that will bring out the green amethyst in the Racetrack Ring for extra sparkle.  Break up the all black dress by adding a simple long chain necklace or thing belt to accentuate the thinnest part of your waist.

 

Weekend with Gemvara Racetrack Ring

For a lazy weekend day running errands and window shopping, try pairing a light and flowing tank top with edgy leather shorts.  You’ll be able to walk miles in a pair of comfortable oxfords, we like the cut-outs in these to keep you cool.  A pair of oversize shades is always the best substitute for wearing makeup and with the Racetrack Ring as a statement; you won’t need any other jewelry for a fuss free yet stylish day!

 

Wedding Reception with Gemvara Racetrack Ring

Summer is wedding season, meaning dancing the night away.  Stay cool with a lightweight dress in a pastel hue.  This one has awesome draping and large arm holes to keep the air flowing.  Play up the earth tones in a pair of wooden-sole wedges (much more comfortable then stilettos) and a warm chocolate brown clutch.  Keep your makeup simple so it doesn’t melt off during the day.  This NARS multiple is small enough to throw in your bag for a quick reapply later in the evening.  The Racetrack Ring is all you need to polish off this look and you are ready to go!

How to Wear: Mixed Metals

Mixing Metals with Gemvara

 

For a long time, mixing jewelry metals was a fashion faux paux, but lately, it has been up for debate and the traditional side is losing.  Don’t be afraid to mix metals as long as you keep a few basic things in mind:

  • Keep the gemstones simple and/or matching.  In this set, we used all white sapphire gems to make sure that the pieces were not overwhelmed with color, and also to make the white and yellow gold stand out.
  • Use a bridge piece.  When mixing metals, try incorporating a piece that naturally has two tones of metal in it to tie the other pieces of jewelry together.  In this example, we used the Organic Stacking Ring set which has two white gold rings and one yellow gold ring in between as well as the Initial “M” Key which is primarily yellow gold except for the “M” in white gold.  This makes it easier to wear an all white gold or yellow gold piece such as these Margarita Earrings or if you have a single-colored piece that you always wear.
  • Keep an overall theme for the jewelry, so the mixing looks deliberate.  Stick to one general concept for the jewelry, such as vintage, contemporary, or traditional.  This set leans towards more traditional, delicate jewelry since the outfit it is with is much more outstanding.  The elegance of the jewelry balances the edginess of the bustier top and dramatic high-low skirt.  The accessories and makeup also balance out the skirt and top by keeping plain and neutral with peachy pink makeup.
