Diamonds Are a Guy’s Best Friend?



It’s no surprise to anyone in the jewelry industry, particularly in retail, that most men like to keep it simple. If they’re looking for a wedding band, it’s usually pretty plain—maybe a little milgrain or subtle design here and there, but mostly, they can’t be bothered with anything too fancy. So aside from your Super Bowl ring-wearing athlete or über-wealthy, high-stylin’ fella, you don’t see gentlemen these days with too much bling. But why not? With the abundance of styles that cleverly and artfully incorporate the sparkling rocks, men have nothing to fear. Check out these diamond finds from Marketplace that add a little shine to men’s jewelry boxes without being too flashy.

 

Todd Reed’s Raw Diamond Band

If the gentleman wearer wants to show off the diamonds, he turns the embellished side of the ring outward; if he prefers them to be hidden, he can reverse the ring to face inward and keep the stones to himself.
