Rated 5 out of 5 by ThatJewishNerd Simple, yet masculine
I am no slave to the fickle whims of modern fashion, and I have always felt that the modern view of wedding rings, ie, dripping with precious stones and having an almost offensive bulk, to be almost grotesque. I prefer simplicity and quiet elegance to an obnoxious display of crude wealth.
Having finally found the woman I was meant to be with, I decided to purchase a ring that would be both symbolic of my relationship, yet not ostentatious.
This ring suited me very well indeed. It is just a simple band of 14k gold, but it is very comfortable - it is neither too tight, nor does it jostle about on my finger. The rounded edges are subtle, and do not catch on anything. The color is also understated, but in a manner that I can only describe as 'gentlemanly' - in most light, it is faintly yellow, while in broad daylight, it appears almost exactly light white gold. I quite enjoy this mild color-shift, as I do not particularly like the strong yellow of 'classic' gold.
It is broad enough in width to be instantly identifiable as 'masculine', yet not so broad as to be gaudy or absurd. This is the perfect ring for a man who doesn't feel the need to show off. One of the selling points for me over other rings, however, was the ability to have it engraved with a max character limit of 25. Adding a small, intensely intimate bit of text took this from a practical purchase to an emotional one. My fiance was so moved by what I had engraved that she started crying, something I've never seen her do before.
If there is a downside to this item, it is that it (and maybe this is just a facet of the 14k gold itself) seems to scuff and dull easily. I will need to purchase polishing cloths and gold polish if I want to bring it back to its original high-gloss shine; as is, it has acquired rather rapidly a sort of satin-style sheen, which is fine, but I much prefer its original look.
