It is just as important to select a man’s wedding band as it is to choose a woman’s engagement ring. Then when you go to do it, you may find it is a bit more challenging than you thought. Just like women’s rings, men’s wedding bands come in various styles, widths, and metals. Remember, this is a piece of jewelry you will be wearing for the rest of your life. So, here is your guide to finding the right men’s wedding band for his hand.
Choosing the Width
First, you need to decide the width of your ring. They come in three styles.
- Slim (4mm)
- Medium (6mm)
- Wide (8mm)
A thing to note is the more expansive the ring, the higher the cost it will be, but you cannot deny a broader width ring complements a hand with long or more extensive fingers.
Now that you know the width you want your ring to be, your next step is picking the metal. Men’s wedding bands have gone beyond the simple gold or silver. Choose white gold, rose gold, platinum, palladium, titanium, tungsten, zirconium, or stainless steel. Whichever one appeals to you, it’s best to do a little research on the metal beforehand to know if its structure will fit in with your daily lifestyle, as some metals scratch more quickly than others.
When it comes to fitting your right, it involves more than just knowing your ring size. The metal can play a factor in your fitting too. Say you pick platinum; well, platinum is a heavy metal, thus resulting in the ring feeling like a weight on your finger. The fit depends on the feel of the ring on your finger too.
Men’s wedding bands are all round in shape, but there are various structures to choose from. Dome, flat, and concave.
The Polished Finish
You’ve decided on the width, the metal, the structure, and the fit for your wedding band. Now comes the finish! Men’s wedding bands feature a variety of finishes.
- High polish
- Brush/Cross Satin
According to the Pew Research Center, the majority of American adults are married. A man’s wedding band should bring as much thought, time, and devotion as a woman’s ring. You can even add a little detail to the call to make the ring exquisitely unique. Some wedding bands even come with gemstones or sweet inscriptions to make the ring more meaningful, to show the genuine bonds of love.
