How to find the perfect pair of men’s diamonds
A few years ago, when the world of diamonds was a relatively new phenomenon, the demand for diamonds was astronomical.
“There were more than 200 million of them in circulation at one point,” said David Prentice, the Canadian jewelry magnate.
“People were buying them because they thought they were diamonds.”
As the industry matures, and as we see more and more people turn to the more environmentally friendly alternatives, the industry is getting more competitive, Prentice said.
The demand is increasing, and the industry needs to keep up.
In an industry with so many alternatives, there are still a few gems that are the only two choices.
So if you’re looking for a men’s ring, you’ll need to look for a ring that is made with a soft silicone ring material, as opposed to a hard diamond.
That way, you’re not wasting money when it comes to your wedding day, said Robyn Doolittle, owner of Doolitties.com.
“When you look at the two, you really don’t need to buy them,” she said.
A soft silicone plastic ring is made of soft, non-fibrous plastic that is coated with a silicone shell, or a soft rubber coating.
The silicone shell absorbs the oil that the diamond will be buried in and prevents the diamond from damaging the ring while it’s being crafted.
(A diamond is more resistant to the heat of the furnace.)
You can also buy a soft diamond ring that has been heated to a high temperature, which allows for more wear and tear, as well as the ability to withstand a bit of friction.
The more rubber you buy, the more likely it is to break.
But for the price, you won’t find a softer silicone plastic diamond ring as easily as you would a hard one.
“The more expensive the diamond, the less you’re going to find a soft one,” Doolitty said.
“It’s the same hardness, but you can’t see that in the picture.
It’s very subtle.”
Doolitte and other diamond ring experts have noticed a shift in the demand over the past few years.
“I’ve been to a few of the events, and there’s not much more demand now,” she added.
“But in my experience, it’s still pretty much a two-person event.
It takes one person to hold the ring, and two to hold a partner to the ring.”
Dolly M. Pritchard, a professor at the University of Manitoba, said that if a diamond is hard, the softer silicone can be a bit harder.
The harder silicone will also be less resistant to wear and breakage.
“In a soft ring, there’s no need for a lot of wear and abuse to it,” she explained.
“You’re only using it a few times a year.”
When you’re planning to wear the same ring over and over, it becomes easier to get the same effect.
“For some people, it will work better to wear it once, than a couple of times a month,” said Pritcher.
If you’re interested in buying a hard-to-find pair of diamonds, you may want to consider a softer, nonbonded silicone ring, said Prentice.
With a hard, you want to buy a solid gold, and if you buy a non-bondable, that’s probably the only way you’re getting a diamond that’s going to last,” he said.
