If we had to ask you a simple question, regarding heart shaped gems - your answer would most probably be in the negative. The question is whether heart gems are suitable for mens rings or other men's jewelry. Despite the preachings about, love being universal - heart gems that are meant to symbolize love and affection, are generally not used in mens jewelry.

We will today discuss about one mens heart gem stone ring that has shown a sharp increase in demand. The 375 year old claddagh tradition is today respected all over the globe. This ring was first made by an Irish slave named Robert Joyce. The jewel with it's hands, heart and crown is one of the very few heart rings that men are prepared to wear. Kaisilver the world's leading online custom jewelry provider is credited with crafting the world's finest rendition of this historic jewel. While you can request for your mens claddagh ring to be made with a gem or plain without one, adding a gem can add meaning to the jewel too.

A heart shaped center gem stone for the claddagh mens ring could be selected in a number of ways. You might choose a gem that has the color that you prefer or, might have a specific gemstone in mind. For example, a heart shaped birth stone men's claddagh ring is supposed to bring good luck and good fortune to the wearer. The tradition of birthstones has been kept alive for many centuries. Besides the tradition of birthstones, man has also attributed special powers to certain gems. A heart black onyx gem in a men's gold or 925 silver claddagh ring is not a birthstone but, there are other special properties attributed to onyx gems. It is believed that wearing a black onyx gem helps a person come to terms with tragedy and hardship.

Though pearl is the birth stone for the month of June, moonstone is also designated as the birthstone for June. This is useful when the gem needs to be cut and shaped like a gem. Pearl cannot be cut and faceted like moonstone.

If you want to know how big the gem in a mens claddagh ring can be, we would say that it depends on your budget. However in most cases, the gem size would be between 8mm and 10mm. If you wanted a mens claddagh heart ring with a sapphire, ruby, emerald or tanzanite we would suggest that you limit yourself to an 8mm heart shape gem. This is because a 10mm sapphire or ruby could cost around 5,000 U.S$ to 15,000 U.S$ for the piece. On the other hand, aquamarine, tourmaline, morganite and iolite are more affordable in the 10mm size BUT not exactly cheap. It is very likely that a heart claddagh mens ring with these gems would be better made with an 8mm gemstone. Just remember that we do not limit your choice for gem size, but your budget would most probably place such restrictions. However if you do have the budget to match, we will be glad to procure and custom cut the gemstone and size of your choice.

So what if you wanted a 10mm gem size for your claddagh mens heart ring in gold or silver. Remember that a larger gem size would imply a larger metal mounting too, this would require the metal weight to be proportional to the ring size and dimensions. The gems that would be moderately priced in the heart shape 10mm size category would be - white topaz, all shades of blue topaz, peridot, agate, black onyx, bloodstone, blue lapis, amethyst, citrine, smoky quartz, rose quartz, red garnet, dyed green jade, moonstone and a few others. So basically if you have a gem size set in your mind, check out the gems that are within your budget for that size. On the other hand if you have a specific gem in mind, then pick the 8mm or 10mm size based on the price factor.

Before we move ahead with this discussion, we would like to say a few things about the meaning of a claddagh ring. The first ring was made by an Irish fisherman turned slave, his name was Robert Joyce. One morning, the boat in which young Robert and his friends were sailing was attacked by pirates. The attackers not only stole all the belongings on the boat but also, captured the fishermen and sold them as slaves. Robert was sold to a wealthy goldsmith, and was forced to work hard for his master. The harsh life of slavery was something that he could bear but, the thought of being separated from his beloved tormented him. It was the dream of being free one day and meeting his beloved that gave him the strength to carry on. He decided to make something for her, hoping to gift it to her when he would be free from the shackles of slavery. His dreams came free and he was a few years later, Robert Joyce was freed from slavery. As expected, he rushed back to his small village and was overjoyed to see that his beloved was still waiting for him. He gave her the 'gift' that he had made for her, this was the first claddagh ring. The touching story has resulted in tremendous interest and respect in this historic jewel.
