Engagement rings for men are not a new concept, but Tiffany & Co. engagement rings for men mark a new era for the brand!
A French luxury goods company LVMH acquired Tiffany & Co. in January for $15.8 billion. First order of business? Diamonds for men!
This month the brand releases the Charles Tiffany Setting collection, consisting of solitaire men’s rings featuring round-brilliant and emerald-cut diamonds measuring up to 4.3 carats.
Why is Tiffany & Co. Producing Engagement Rings for Men?
First of all, why not? Diamond rings have traditionally been marketed towards women, but not anymore! Here’s why diamonds are seeing more action in mens’ fashion.
Men’s Jewelry is More Common Than Ever
We’re talking about more than just diamonds in a championship Super Bowl ring.
Let’s take it back a few centuries. Diamond rings for men originated with the pinky signet ring. Signet rings were primarily worn by affluent European men from wealthy families.
These rings showcased a carving of the family crest, which could be used to seal letters and sign documents. Tiffany & Co. specifically designed this new line of men’s rings after the traditionally signet ring.
It’s not just rings. Men’s jewelry overall is making a comeback. We’ve especially seen plenty of red carpet appearances lately:
- Trevor Noah wore a $35,000 Tiffany & Co. brooch for the Grammy’s in March
- Timothée Chalamet donned a vintage Cartier brooch to last year’s Academy Awards.
- Ed Sheeran wears an engagement ring his fiancee crafted for him.
Fashion is Becoming Fluid
Next, fashion trends are more fluid and evolved than ever. Designers are now embracing non binary styles that everyone can wear.
Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Valentino are leading the industry behind Harris Reed- the 24 year old designer that outfitted Harry Styles’ infamous world tour.
This fluid fashion movement combined with more same sex nuptials helped push Tiffany & Co. into this new era of designer rings for men.
Couples are Breaking from Tradition
Finally, more and more couples are leaving conventional ideas and traditions regarding marriage behind.
Let’s take a closer look at the Tiffany & Co. engagement rings for men.
Tiffany & Co. Engagement Rings for Men
The Charles Tiffany Setting men’s engagement ring line feature six different designs. The rings feature platinum and black or gray titanium bands with either round brilliant or emerald cut diamonds in varying sizes.
Per the Tiffany’s website, these designs showcase strong contours and clean lines reminiscent of the traditional forms of the signet style.
We like the clean and simple, yet elegant look of the rings. The horizontal diamonds paired with a gypsy setting provide a masculine ambiance.
