When buying a ring for yourself or looking for high-quality silver skull rings for men as a gift, there are some things to keep in mind. We handcraft our skull rings and make them with great attention to detail. This makes them the perfect gift for men with unique styles.

Consider the following factors when buying a skull ring, whether for yourself or as a gift.

  2. Materials used
  3. Pay attention to the design
  4. Consider the quality
  5. Read existing testimonials 
  6. Get the right size 
  7. Affordability 

Personal style

If you are buying a skull ring for yourself, you must ensure that you pick one that complements your style. There are simpler and bolder skull rings, so you have plenty of styles to choose from.

There are brighter colors or darker ones that you can match with your outfits. If you opt for a more gothic style, browse through our unique designs to complement your overall style.

Materials used 

Skull rings are made from various metals, including silver, gold, brass, etc. Most men tend to prefer sterling silver over other materials when it comes to jewelry pieces. Sterling silver is a very strong metal that will last for many years. It is durable, affordable, and easy to style with every outfit. 

But if you have a warmer skin tone, you may prefer gold jewelry as it complements warmer tones better. Whatever skull ring you buy, ensure it is of a material you like. Otherwise, you are unlikely to wear it. 

Pay attention to the design

Skull rings come in various designs. Some skull rings are with gemstones in the sockets like Skull & Stone Ring. Others have flames or wings alongside the skull. 

If you are looking for a gift for a man in your life, try a skull ring with his birthstone. Skull rings have distinctive patterns that distinguish them from other types of conventional rings.

The following designs are popular among men. 

  • One-tone skull ring

  • This design is great for men that like simpler designs but still wish to make a statement. You can wear a sterling silver or gold skull ring that is easy to match with most outfits yet still bold enough to stand out. 

  • Two-tone skull ring

  • A great choice if you want to try out something new and step outside of the norm. Two-tone skull rings are made of two metals, usually gold and silver. You can get a bolder look without a bulky design with a two-tone ring.

    Consider the quality

    When buying a skull ring, ensure high quality. You do not want to buy a ring made with cheap materials that get easily damaged.

    Read existing testimonials 

    One of the best ways to ensure you get what you pay for is to browse through customer testimonials. You can check out the reviews of our satisfied customers. As you can see, the testimonials are overwhelmingly positive, which we take great pride in.

    If you buy something online, choosing a manufacturer that can provide user reviews and high-quality images is necessary. The reviews and the images vouch for the jewelry quality when purchasing online. Customer testimonials are the best way to determine if a product is worth your money.

    Get the right size

    Remember that not all skull rings come in the same size. The most crucial step after choosing a ring to wear is to choose a size that suits you the best. It ought to feel cozy on your finger when you wear it.

    You can use our sizing chart to determine the right ring size for the finger on which you plan to wear the skull ring. 

    The skull ring should fit comfortably on your finger. It should not be too tight or too loose. The ideal size permits movement on the fingers without coming off. Furthermore, hypoallergenic metals should be used to make rings. 


    Price is another important factor in choosing the right skull ring for you. Generally, higher-quality skull rings will have a higher price tag. Still, it does not mean you must overspend to get good jewelry.

    For example, sterling silver skull rings are more affordable than gold pieces. But just because they are cheaper does not mean they are of lesser quality. The price disparity between gold and silver is due to the value of the metals. 

    Sterling silver skull rings are high quality, durable, and look great with most outfits. You can style them with more formal outfits or simpler everyday fits to elevate your style. But if you are ready to invest more in your jewelry, go for a gold skull ring or choose a piece with a stone.

    The Finger Placement is Important 

    Another important consideration is which finger you intend to wear the skull ring on. You can wear them based on the different meanings of each finger, making a specific statement.

    If you plan on wearing the skull ring on your pinky, go for a bolder and flashier style. This will naturally draw the eye of others to your ring. 

    Most men wear skull rings on their middle and index fingers. But you can wear your skull ring on whatever finger you wish, which allows you to build your own unique style.

    You can even wear skull rings on multiple fingers. Once you know on which finger you will wear your skull ring, measure it to get the right size
