Men can find best friends in diamonds too. Why not? Their value remains the same, whether the wearer is male or female.  They still sparkle attractively whether they are set on chunky masculine bands or slender feminine ones. They also retain the overall effect of making the wearer look and feel like a million bucks.

Mens diamond rings have certainly increased their popularity recently. With the introduction of more ring designs catering to the masculine aesthetic, the market for them has definitely widened. There are many mens diamond ring setting options available now. Some of the most popular are the following:

  • Channel. Mens diamond rings with a channel setting are usually fashioned with a straight line of multiple diamonds set around the entire band. Alternately, they could feature two parallel lines of diamonds instead and only on a portion of the band. Both round and square diamonds can be set channel style. It is, however, difficult to resize rings with such a diamond setting.
  • Prong. This is the mens diamond ring setting most commonly used for solitaire rings. The prongs hold the diamond in place in such a way that they allow light to enter the stone to make it appear as brilliant as possible. This can be tricky though as a balance has to be reached. You want your stone extra secure with more prongs in place and yet you want the maximum amount of light for more brilliance.
  • Bezel. A bezel setting looks very much like a prong setting, but instead of metal prongs holding the stones, a collar of metal does. Feminine diamond rings usually have the bezel standing above the band itself for added height, but masculine ones tend to have bezels embedded in the band. Bezels have a more modern look than prongs.

The featured settings are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many others to choose from. A man these days can definitely easily find a diamond ring that is perfect for him.
