How Titanium Jewelry Invaded the Oscars
Oscar night is one of the biggest nights in Hollywood. For the elite in the movie industry this is not only the night where they award their own for
excellence in cinema, but also show off their outfits and jewelry to their world. While females are usually the main attraction at the ceremonies with
their cleavage bearing dresses and million dollar (plus) jewelry, men are not completely immune to the fashion bug. At the Oscars men show off their
look with exclusive tuxedos and subtle- well, usually at least- jewelry which adorn their hands, necks and, sometimes, ears.
While I tend to not notice men's jewelry on celebrities, there was, for some reason, one piece that stood out to me. During the presentation of the Best
Picture category, they showed a brief glimpse of Jeremy Renner who starred in the eventual Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker. During this glimpse
I noticed that Renner was wearing one of those titanium rings which I've seen gaining in popularity in recent years. Renner's ring seemed pretty
standard with its simple shape, and subtle design. Frankly, the only reason I probably noticed it was that one of my friend's husband's wears one as
his wedding band. Renner is not married nor engaged so I'm guessing it's purely a style thing.
Though you don't see them that often, I've really become a fan of these titanium rings. At first I thought maybe it was a bit too "industrial" for something
like a wedding band, but as time has gone on they have really started to grow on me. I've actually started looking into them for one of my friends who
is getting married. She asked me what I thought she should get for the men's wedding band and I was (more then) happy to give her my opinion. She
looked into it and was really impressed at what she found.
I'm not really sure why I'm so impressed with these rings. Maybe the fact that they are a bit more industrial-looking makes them seem more appealing
on a guy. Let's face it, as a girl we want are guys to be sweet and sensitive, but
