Dripping with jewelry

Faded jeans and men's bands

By Melissa Sharp | Jun 13, 2019

Let the band play on

Hey guys, let's face it. There's nothing better than getting home from work and slipping on your favorite pair of faded jeans. 

They've been broken in, time-softened, and they put a spring in your step when they fit just right.

But they didn't always feel like that.  When you first got them, they may have been stiffer, a darker color, and taken time to feel like a part of you.

Jewelry is also like that, if you've never worn a ring before.

Chris Ploof on InstagramMany guys feel odd choosing a wedding band.

Some men don't even wear a watch, so they might be at a complete loss when it comes to selecting and wearing a finger-blinger. It can also feel very alien, having a band of metal on your hand at first. That's where the comfortable faded jeans part comes in... Once you start wearing your chosen band it eventually becomes as comforting as your favorite pair of jeans. It becomes part of your identity. It even becomes a part of you.

Down the road you may even feel a bit lost if you leave home without your band. It can put your day off just as much as having a bad hair day, leaving the house without shaving or forgetting to put on deodorant (I'll stop there).

First-class statement

Just as we deliver more fire, sparkle and life to our diamond clients, we've sought the most unique, appealing and well-crafted options in the world of men's bands. We live in a world of increasing diversity and individual expression. While subtle, that small circle of metal adorning your finger can serve as a personal statement, as well as a symbol. And, thanks to some brilliant design concepts and artistic 'smithing, we proudly offer a number of unique, appealing and well-crafted styles for men.
