Mens Wedding Bands

A wedding is the ultimate celebration of love, an occasion when two people promise to live together “for better or for worse”. No wedding would ever be complete without a wedding ring. The time when men never wore wedding bands is now a thing of past. Modern men opt to wear a wedding band as a symbol of their love and commitment towards their spouse.

HOW TO CHOOSE WEDDING BAND FOR A
MAN?

Men’s wedding rings are definitely
different from women’s wedding
rings. Men’s wedding bands are
usually simple wide bands that add
to their masculine character.
Selection of a wedding band also
depends on the taste of the wearer.
The rings should suit his
personality.

Some men are shy while some are
outgoing. Some are conservative
while others are outrageous. This is
often reflected in their selection
of a wedding band. An expressive man
may prefer his wedding band to be
very stylish, something that’s
entirely different and eye-catching,
while a more conservative dresser
may prefer a simple ring.

Consider the man’s build when you
choose a wedding band. Taller men
prefer wider bands while short men
prefer bands that are not so wide.
Lastly, keep your budget in mind.

Every man would want his wedding
band to be unique, something that’s
one of a kind. Well, there is a wide
range of options available for Men’s
wedding rings too. You can have
rings of various metals with various
designs.

METALS COMMONLY USED IN MEN’S WEDDING BANDS

For centuries, wearing a wedding
ring made of yellow gold is
traditional. Gold is available in
different carats like 14k, 16k, 18k,
22k and 24k etc. For beauty and
durability choose a wedding band of
either 18k or 22k gold.

Over the years, men have begun
experimenting with metals like
platinum, white gold and silver.
Platinum being one of the costliest
metals, is strong and
hypoallergenic. Hence platinum
wedding bands are very durable and
suitable for all.

For those who cannot afford for
platinum wedding bands, titanium or
silver wedding bands are the best.
Titanium looks like platinum and is
available at cheaper rates as
compared to platinum. Silver,
tungsten carbide wedding rings are
also in vogue today.

Diamond wedding bands are fast
gaining popularity. Men now seem to
be crazy about having finely cut
diamonds in their wedding bands.
Diamonds studded in any metal look
very elegant.

Now that you’re sure of what metal
you would like for your ring, you
need to choose a design for your
wedding band. Some men prefer a
simple wedding band while some may
go for handcrafted wedding bands or

like.
