In many cases, weddings become about the bride-to-be. There is so much excitement and anticipation when it comes to the ring and what it will look like and somehow, the groom-to-be is quickly forgotten. Men’s wedding rings are just as important but can be a little trickier in terms of selecting the right one, so here’s some guidance to help anyone shopping for a men’s wedding ring.
Many people think choosing a man’s ring is a lot easier, but that’s simply not true. A man’s ring is just as difficult, especially if it’s a man who cares about style.
The first step is to choose the right width. Rings come in a wide variety of widths, including slim, medium and wide, which are the most common choices. Every man is different and in addition to their preferences, you should consider that longer fingers look better with wider rings, so it’s good to know the details before you start shopping. In the end, you get to be the judge and decide on a ring that you’re comfortable with, but try different widths to see which option looks best on your hand.
The second step is to think about the different metals and materials, which is a very important part of choosing a wedding band. The good news is that there are a handful of options so you won’t feel overwhelmed. The options for men’s wedding rings are white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum, palladium, titanium and stainless steel. There are other options as well, although these are the most popular ones. White gold and palladium are more expensive because they are precious metals so base your decision on value, possibility to resize and cost. Generally, most men decide on a ring that is either white or yellow gold because it’s a classic option and a precious metal.
Next, you need to think about the style and finish that you want for your wedding ring. The aesthetic matters so be mindful of your ring’s appearance. You can choose a ring with a high polish, which is very common and has a shiny finish or a matte ring that is more modern and has less of a reflection. You can even decide to do a combination of both depending on the look you’re after.
Your wedding ring should reflect your personality and sense of style because you’ll be wearing this piece of jewellery forever, so make sure you don’t choose a style that you’ll love temporarily. You can get creative and include lots of details or keep it simple with a basic option if that’s what you prefer.
