Men's Gemstone Ring With Lapis

Men's rings with dark gem colors have always been in trend, this is all the more true when it comes to dark blue gemstones. The MAN66 men's lapis ring from Kaisilver is crafted with a natural lapis lazuli gemstone from the mountains of Afghanistan. We have often got requests for men's rings with lapis from the Pakistan mines, this needs some explanation. The geographic terrain in the mountains of Pakistan and Afghanistan is contiguous. What this means is that the properties and chemical composition of lapis lazuli from both countries would be the same.

The Kaisilver men's ring shown above has a large blue lapis gem firmly mounted in the center. A bezel setting type borders the entire gem with metal, this ensures a secure mount and also protects the edges of the lapis gemstone from side impact. While we will have no problem crafting this lapis lazuli ring with a prong setting, prongs tend to get stuck in fabric etc and open up. This will gradually loosen the gemstone, something that is really not a good thing to happen. 

The design concept for this men's lapis ring, provides a series of grooves on the band. Each ring is fully custom made, you can therefore request for a band with a plain finish or for a pattern of your choice. The band tapers a bit as it moves behind the finger. Most men prefer this tapering as it makes the ring more comfortable to wear. 

For those of you who prefer to wear a lapis gemstone ring with a solid band (no scooping inside the band), here are some notes. Kaisilver jewels are generally assigned a metal (gold or silver) weight, that is 40% to 50% more than what other jewelers would provide. The minimum metal weight for the MAN66 men's lapis ring is around 20 grams. A requirement for a solid band might call for an additional metal weight depending, on the ring size. The support team will inform you whether, your ring size calls for an additional metal weight. 

The design experts at Kaisilver work on details that go beyond creating a pretty jewel, this men's lapis lazuli ring is a good example. Take a look at the side image of the MAN66 men's lapis ring, notice how the gemstone has a low profile and shows only a slight protrusion from the surface of the ring. We could have easily cut a deep bulky piece of lapis gemstone for this ring but, the fact is that such a gem is more likely to get damaged by physical impact.

About Lapis Lazuli: You might come across references where, lapis lazuli is referred to as a mineral but, scientifically speaking lapis is rightly referred to as a rock. Lapis is composed of three minerals, sodalite, calcite and pyrite. It is important to understand that, the proportion of these minerals in lapis lazuli, can vary and there is no fixed chemical formula that they follow. The name Lapis Lazuli is derived from two words in two different languagues, Latin 'lapis' which means stone and the Arabic word 'azul' meaning blue. 

Lapis Lazuli has been mined for close to 5,000 years, the Egyptians crushed it and used it to prepare cosmetics. Historic artifacts have revealed vases and similar objects carved from Lapis. European artists have used crushed lapis lazuli to prepare their paints (pigments). 

For those of you who believe in the special properties of gemstones, here are some notes about lapis lazuli. The stone is believed to strengthen personal expression and intuition. It is also said that wearing lapis allows a person to be more receptive to knowledge. Feng shui lists lapis as the stone which is primarily suited for the Northern direction. 

Lapis Lazuli Color: As can be seen in the image of the MAN66 lapis men's ring, the gemstone is predominantly blue. You can see some amount of white and also metallic specs on the stone. This is the natural color of blue lapis, the blue shade is derived from soldalite, the whitish portions are composed of calcite and the metallic specs are pyrite. We often get requests for men's lapis gemstone rings, with stones that are totally blue. If you happen to have this preference, there is something that you should be aware of. Lapis stones that have dark uniform blue color are dyed. If you still prefer the uniform blue lapis gemstone, let us know and we can craft your ring with your preferred stone.
