Choosing diamonds for men, can be done by following similar principles as choosing for women, however there are a few factors to keep in mind that requires to aligned with masculine tastes and preferences.
- Style: Consider the man’s personal taste and style with regards to jewelry which he would like to wear. As men mostly like to lean more towards the simpler designs, with a more masculine component added to the jewelry piece.
- Diamond Size: It's important to strike an appropriate balance between size and quality to ensure the diamond appears visually appealing when one looks at the same. However, the size of the diamond ultimately depends on personal preference, men generally tend to prefer larger diamonds compared to smaller diamonds as it gives a more masculine look.
- Diamond Shape and color: Classic lab grown diamond shapes like round, princess, and cushion cuts are versatile and suitable for both men and women. But I’ve experienced men may lean towards more angular or geometric shapes like emerald, or radiant cuts. These shapes can add a touch of masculinity to the diamond. Colorless diamonds (graded D-F) tend to be the most popular as they offer a timeless and sophisticated look, some men may appreciate diamonds with a slight tint or fancy-colored diamonds, such as blue or black diamonds.
- Diamond Setting Quality and Certification: When selecting setting for the diamond, look for a durable setting. Ensure that the diamond you choose is certified by a reputable grading laboratory, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gem Society (AGS).
The key is to consider the individual's personal preferences and style when choosing a diamond for a man. Communication and understanding his tastes will help you select a diamond that suits his unique personality.
