However, the meaning and tradition of the cladagh ring has today made the ring very popular among ladies and men. The main difference between the cladagh ring worn by ladies and men would be the, difference in dimensions and weight. Since mens rings are generally larger, a cladagh male ring would need higher metal weight to ensure that it is strong and sturdy. This becomes an important factor when pricing gold male cladagh rings. The prices of gold have increased by over 70% in the past 7 to 8 years, a heavy gold ring would today carry a hefty price tag. This probably is one of the most important reasons why, sterling silver male claddagh rings have a higher popularity among males. Making a light weight gold cladagh ring also makes the ring fragile and it can bend or dent easily. Reputed jewelers like Kaisilver have constantly advised buyers that a sturdy silver ring is always better than a lightweight flimsy gold ring. High pressure selling tactics adopted by other jewelry sellers does not allow them to make such honest and straightforward recommendations.
Another important aspect of a male cladagh ring would be gemstone selection. Large rings would need a correspondingly larger gemstone. This can mean a high expense in gemstones like emeralds, rubies, sapphires, tanzanite and even tourmaline, aquamarine and iolite. There are options to handle this situation, these are both good and interesting. Firstly if you are interested in a male gemstone cladagh ring, choose modestly priced gems. Good options would be, black onyx, carnelian (shown in the MAN60 image), red garnet, amethyst, smoky quartz, citrine, bloodstone, blue lapis, sodalite, malachite, stabilized turquoise etc. Another good idea would be to leave your male cladagh ring without a gemstone. In this case the center of the ring (heart portion) would be made of solid metal. If you wish to try something interesting, consider a two tone cladagh male ring. Let the entire ring be made in white gold and include a yellow gold heart, or vice versa.
