In the past, men’s wedding rings seemed like an afterthought compared to the engagement ring and the woman’s wedding band. While men may have once been content with a plain gold band, today they have a plethora of options. This way, they can find a ring style and see which metal types work best for their lifestyle. If your groom is more active, he may want something more durable than pretty, so I’ll run through your different options.
· Take note of your future husband’s activities when selecting his ring. Does he work in an office or does he work as a sports trainer or in a machine shop where he uses his hands frequently? If that’s the case and he plans to wear his ring daily, consider opting for a stronger, durable band type. You can find a wide selection of rings at http://www.delphidiamonds.com.au/wedding-rings.html.
· Decide on the metal type of his ring.
1. Gold - Gold is still one of the most traditional options and you can choose from yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold or even mix them. However, gold isn’t as durable as other options.
2. Platinum - This popular choice is known for both its purity and its durability. Platinum is more dense, making it extremely durable and making this metal a prime candidate for men’s rings. If a platinum ring gets scratched, you won’t see any metal lost or any damage so it will last for many years regardless of what kind of work he does.
3. Titanium - Titanium looks cool and rugged so it appeals to men. Like platinum, it is hypoallergenic and resistant to corrosion. However, titanium is as strong as steel, but is as light as aluminium, making it ideal for men who don’t wear a lot of jewellery.
· Select a ring that fits comfortably and avoid those old school rings that pinch his skin. Instead, stick to curved rings with smooth edges as they allow for a more comfortable fit, especially if your groom has larger hands or knuckles.
· Consider adding some diamonds now that diamond wedding rings for men are the norm and not the exception. If he’s active, keep the stones subtle by flush mounting them and only adding a few.
· Add some personal details to it. Keep in mind his personal taste as he may prefer a more simple and plain band with just a few diamond chips and a simple engraving inside. However, if he likes trendier things, then you can have some fun by mixing metals or even trying a matte finish instead. He’ll appreciate receiving a subtle but wearable ring that is a reflection of that love which you share.
As you choose your man’s wedding ring, make sure to decide whether you want it to match yours or if you want his to stand out as well. We hope that the points discussed in this article has helped you decide.
