Tips for Choosing Men’s Wedding Bands
Choosing men’s wedding bands can be a bit stressful if you go into the jewelry store with no idea of what you’re looking for. Here we suggest a few key considerations that will get you started towards choosing the ideal wedding ring for that special man in your life.
Consider Functionality and Design First
The style of the ring you choose will need to be functional for your partner’s lifestyle. A simple smooth or etched band design is popular with men who are active, work in rugged environments or who enjoy working out frequently.
While diamonds are also a common choice, many men opt to save such pieces for wearing on special occasions while wearing a plain or carved etched band the rest of the time. Keep his daily needs in mind when shopping for men’s wedding bands.
Explore Wedding Band Materials
Is your partner a more traditional guy who would prefer a standard material like gold, or are they the more adventurous type willing to explore a variety of ring materials?
While white and yellow gold were once considered the standard, today’s options include a number of interesting options.
Platinum—This material is second in popularity only to gold, but it is a very rare and pricey option. Platinum is highly durable and hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for most men.
Palladium—This material from the platinum family is often called the ‘poor man’s platinum’ because it’s much more affordable. While a bit softer, it’s strong and durable like platinum.
Rose Gold—While many men won’t want a pinkish colored ring, some actually love its distinct vintage appearance.
Other Materials—Some popular non-traditional materials used for men’s wedding bands today include medical-grade silicone, wood, sterling silver and titanium.
