How to Select Men’s Wedding Band

Buying a Men’s Wedding Band is a once-in-a-lifetime investment, so, it has been as perfect and as beautiful as your relation. Usually, men don’t like to wear a lot of jewelry, they become very choosy when it comes to wearing jewelry, even if it is a wedding band. While choosing the perfect wedding band for men, women usually become clueless.

So, in today’s blog, we are serving you with few considerations you should ponder while selecting Wedding Bands for men.

Men’s Wedding Bands: The Complete Guide

 Band2

A guy usually puts a ton of thought into selecting an engagement ring for his fiancé, but when it’s time to choose his own wedding band he may realize that he’s clueless about the options.

If that describes you, don’t let your ring be an afterthought! Since you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life, and it may even be the only piece of jewelry you wear, you should love your wedding band every bit as much as your fiancé loves her carefully selected rings. There are six things to consider when choosing wedding bands for men: width, metal choice, fit, finish, detailing and engraving.

 

Width

How wide do you want your ring to be? Try on a few men’s wedding bands in a variety of different widths to decide what you like best. Wider rings tend to be more expensive (since they require a larger quantity of precious metal), but you can balance size and price by choosing a metal that’s within your budget. For example, palladium looks very similar to platinum and white gold, but costs less.

 

Metal Choice

The metals traditionally used for men’s wedding rings are platinum, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and palladium. Here are the benefits of each:

 

  • Platinum – Platinum is extremely durable and is among the rarest elements in the earth’s crust. It is also hypoallergenic and almost never causes skin reactions.

 

  • White Gold – White gold is gold plated in rhodium, a member of the platinum family, which gives it a brilliant white color similar to platinum’s but at a lower price point (note: the rhodium plating on white gold jewelry may need to be replaced after a decade or so).

 

  • Yellow Gold – Yellow gold gives off a subtle, warm glow and is a classic option.

 

  • Palladium – Palladium is a member of the platinum family of metals and has a very similar look, but generally costs less than platinum and white gold.

 

  • Rose Gold – Rose gold is a beautiful, less common choice and creates a unique vintage effect.  It’s perfect for a groom who wants a more distinctive look.

 

Fit

The edges of men’s wedding bands can be curved or flat, forming right angles to the sides of the ring. Our popular Comfort Fit band has gently rounded edges, which can make it a good choice for men who are concerned about how it will feel to wear a ring every day. Try on a number of different rings to get a sense of which fit feels right to you.

Do Our Wedding Rings Need to Match??

At Ellis Jewelers in Concord we often are asked if the wedding rings of a couple should match.  Our answer is simple.  If you think that the wedding rings should match, then they should.  However, today, because there are so many different choices today of diamond engagement ring styles for brides, as well as so many metal choices for grooms, we believe that you should explore all options.  A better idea may be to find rings that you love the look of but that also compliment each other’s choice.

Diamond Wedding Rings

If you are looking to match your wedding rings one of the easiest way is to both choose diamond bands!  Some men are a bit gun shy when it comes diamonds in their band, but we say go for it!  Diamond rings look great on a groom’s finger.  They are very handsome and can compliment a bride’s diamond wedding band superbly.

Gold Wedding Rings

If it’s classic and traditional wedding rings that you are looking for, then gold wedding rings can be a perfect match.  Whether it is white gold or yellow gold and even rose gold, our selection is extensive and can be found in all sizes and widths for you.  From the simple polished band and expanding to brushed, satin, or even milgraining, we have it all.

Alternative Metal Wedding Rings

In the past few years, the choice for gentleman’s bands has grown tremendously largely due to alternative metals.  Tungsten, titanium, and silver have all become choices in wedding bands that men now have.  Their popularity has increased both because of their look, durability and price point.  These metals can even be engraved now on the inside with personal messages and dates, which is a tradition that many couples still like to do for each other.

Custom Wedding Rings

If matching wedding rings are something you feel strongly about, and you have an idea that doesn’t match what we have in our store, it’s no problem at all.  We will help you custom design matching bands.  If you can imagine it, we can make it!  We have master jewelers that can turn your ideas into beautiful his and her wedding rings.  Simply come in tell us what you envision, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Keep in mind that sometimes the bride’s engagement ring is of a very specific shape.  And there may be only a few wedding bands that will match the engagement ring itself if custom design is not an option.  In this case there may be no “perfect” match for wedding bands.  But we always say not to rule anything out until you’ve tried on several.  You’d be surprised how many of our clients were “sure” that they wanted matching bands but then were happy to agree on rings that were in the same color family.  Come in our downtown Concord store and try on as many bands as you like until you find the ones that’s are right for you both.  We are happy to give you advice and help you find the best look for you as a couple.
