Medieval Style Rings Are Popular – Again?

So you’re finally engaged, and all that there is left to do now is organize the wedding. However, if your man is like most men, then don’t be surprised if your husband-to-be has plenty of wedding ring ideas to contribute, but not a lot of the action. If this sounds like your man, and you both share an affinity for medieval lore, we’ve got some ideas to share with him.  Oh, and you too.

These rings, much like every other trend from years past, is rising again in popularity.  Be forewarned, ye men with chivalrous intent: not all ring makers are created equally, and the power of social suggestion can help drastically reduce errors in shopping for these ring makers.

It starts with custom ring makers!

Medieval style rings, when designed properly and fitted comfortably, are as exquisite and amazingly widespread today as they were centuries ago; if you recall, just before gold and gemstones exploded into mainstream shopper’s eyes, hand-crafted jewelry was typically styled in older gothic or plain bands. Today’s foray of custom rings come from custom ring makers that can emulate virtually any Arthurian style or gothic caricature you choose.  Just choose wisely, my male friends, because this ring will become the centerpiece of your (hopefully) everlasting marriage.

With so many options when it comes to purchasing that elusive wedding ring, it is not only important to do your research about potential jewelry makers, but also research the options with respect to the various medieval overtones you wish to maintain throughout your marriage – and on her finger.

The process

Overall, customized jewelry shows more character than your quintessential department store showpieces. Medieval buffs, as a whole, also appreciate having a wedding look that accentuates their attitude, beliefs and can be worn comfortably without taking it off.  Note that many are making platinum custom medieval rings due to their tougher, scratch resistant surface.

Medieval style rings undergo an interesting process to get created properly. First, the procedure commences by arranging a consultation between you and an expert ring design specialist. Next, they’ll normally create a hand-carved impression of the ring style you want out of waxy substances, then take that impression and forge the creation you are expecting.

Buying medieval style rings that suit your style

While it is no small feat, knowing what you’re likely to face when shopping for that special engagement or wedding ring set will help you cope with the challenges ahead and help you enjoy the full rewards that come from shopping for custom rings.

Leverage the power of Google, social suggestion and subtle hints from your significant other when shopping for that special custom design ring ensemble for your wife-to-be.  Finally, don’t believe everything you see regarding ring shopping from people on television; all the people you see having fun flashing their jewelry are doing so because the person behind the camera directing everything is a professional – and not necessarily the ring maker. Take the opportunity to make this creation yours, after all it’s meant to last forever.

Gloffin men’s gold plated earrings

INFEASIBLE: Gold earrings with ~*cutesy*~ danglers

Ah yes, the specter of male earrings: when will you leave us? As long as people refuse to listen to me and buy gaudy crap like the above, it’ll probably never leave the world of the Living. Ask yourself, you clueless man: Would any self-respecting woman wear something like this? Of course not, so why should you be allowed to?

Feasible: Single tiny silver hoop earring in upper cartilege
My friend Kev rocks a similar one (yes, only one) in the upper part of his left ear and it works splendidly for him. Doesn’t mean it’ll work for you, Mr. Stuck-in-the-90s Guy. Trend carefully with earrings, youngling.

INFEASIBLE: Silver bands with gold designs

Now, I personally don’t agree with the institution of marriage – too tied up in gender dynamics and religion for my tastes. But if you do decide to sign your life away, please don’t do it with something like this. Gold on silver is never a good idea, especially on engagement rings. As you can see, it just looks damn gaudy.


Feasible: Silver bands with a little diamond action

While gold and silver don’t mix, diamonds and silver are a badass pair. I like this piece in particular since it’s minimalistic, has some interesting cuts into the band itself, has three diamonds (my favorite number) and it’s under $500. What a goddamn steal.
