Women typically know exactly what kind of engagement ring and wedding band they want since they tend to spend some time thinking about these kinds of things. Most men on the other hand, don’t think too much about wedding rings until it comes time to purchase one. Often men find even the process of choosing a wedding band a little cumbersome. After all, jewelry terminology can sound foreign and there is an endless range of wedding bands to choose from. How do you even begin to select the one that you’ll wear for the rest of your life?
We have spoken to jewelry experts and gathering a few tips to help make the decision process easier for grooms who are looking the right wedding band.
When you’re looking at wedding bands, consider your lifestyle first. For instance, can you wear the wedding ring while playing sports on a regular basis, or if your job entails dealing with heavy equipment. At the end of the day, you want to be comfortable wearing the wedding band and you want to make sure that it won’t get damage quickly due to your lifestyle.
Choose one that reflects your personality
Considering this ring is the one you will wear for the rest of your life, you should select the one that is a great reflection of who you are. Are you bold and daring? Are you drawn to classic looks? Are you a no-frills kind of man? Don’t just select a wedding band that is trending at the moment, chose one that fits your personal for the long run.
Choose a wedding band that is comfortable
Your wedding band will be on your finger for years to come, so make sure you select the most confortable ring. Three important things to consider are the shape of the ring, the width of the ring and the weight of the ring. Don’t get a super heavy metal that will weigh your hand down create constant discomfort.
There are a few types of metals used for men’s wedding bands, these include gold, titanium, platinum, tungsten and silver. Gold has always been a popular choice for wedding rings, but on the other hand platinum jewelry is used almost in its purest form. Do a little research on the different metals to figure out which one is best for you. You can also get a wedding band with the same kind of metal as your bride’s wedding band.
We hope these four tips give you enough information to get you going in the right direction. Take the time to do a little research and speak with jewelers before purchasing your wedding band.
