Less is more. Men quite frequently either wear a ring on the traditional ring finger or on the pinky. If your dad is not the jewelry kind of guy, which is what they said why Prince William has refused to wear a wedding ring, opt for the pinky ring. When dad likes a good piece of jewelry, choose one that perfectly captures his personality.
For example, some men are the “tall, dark and handsome” variety who will do well with an onyx as the center stone. Others exude an air of sophistication that calls for the use of highly unusual gemstones as the focal point. Remember also that – generally speaking – a pinky ring evokes thoughts of Frank Sinatra, Jay-Z or the guy from the Sopranos. It is the kind of look that communicates danger.
The signet ring, by all accounts, used to be de rigueur for the gentleman of means during the Regency period. It holds a special meaning and serves as a status symbol. After all, the man wearing a signet ring is unlikely to engage in manual labor. This ring is worn on the ring finger. It may be worn with cuff links, which is a no-no when donning a pinky ring. Peter Suchy Jewelers offer some suggestions for the perfect ring purchase this Father’s Day.
