When the time comes to tie the knot and buy a wedding ring you’re presented with many options and it can be hard deciding on the perfect wedding ring. Most men go for tungsten wedding rings but even then there’s a lot of choice. Here are some top tips to pick the ideal mens wedding band (and womens too!)
- Choose Your Metal
The first step is knowing the metal you want the band to be made out of. Popular choices are a tungsten ring, cobalt, and titanium. Tungsten wedding bands are the most durable, but you may prefer a more lightweight option.
- Decide On A Width
Generally a mens wedding band is wider than a womens one, and can be as wide as 10mm, compared to the 6mm that women usually choose. Lately however the trend is reversing and women are opting for wider rings to really show them off. These super wide rings can be as wide as 16mm.
The gemstone is another important choice. Some people prefer to just have a straight wedding band but then there are people who want to have a gemstone. Diamonds are a very popular choice and are found on a lot of tungsten wedding bands. You can also add some uniqueness to your wedding ring by having different colored gemstones. They don’t have to be white at all.
- Get The Perfect Finish
The finish to your wedding band can add a lot of flair to it, or just protect it from the elements. There are a number of finishes available for a wedding band including;
These are just some of the options available. Your jeweller should be able to tell you all the finishes they offer and show you some examples of what they look like to help you pick the ideal one.
Matching Wedding Rings?
Whether or not the mens wedding band matches the womens one is an entirely personal choice that a couple need to make together. Some people like the idea of matching wedding rings while others don’t and would prefer each ring to be unique. There is no right choice when it comes to this kind of thing, but knowing ahead of time helps you decide. Do you need two styles of ring or one?
- Decide On A Color
There are a lot of silver and golden wedding rings out there but they don’t have to come in those colors. A gunmetal tungsten wedding band is often a grey color. Though you can also get tungsten in white if you’d prefer a lighter color. Then there are other metals and other coloring options available. It’s all a matter of personal taste.
- Don’t Be Constrained!
Picking a wedding ring can be a troublesome experience but it doesn’t need to be. The more things you decide ahead of time the easier it’ll be to find the ideal wedding ring. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t find it though, it’s bound to be there somewhere.
