Men’s Wedding Bands: The Complete Guide To Choosing A Ring

31/03/2021

Men usually put a lot of thought and effort into choosing an engagement ring for their fiancés, but when the time comes to select their own wedding band, they are unsure and overwhelmed on where to begin.

If this sounds similar to you, don’t overlook the importance of your ring! Weddings bands are universally recognised as symbols of promise, commitment and everlasting love. Due to its significance and the fact that you will be wearing it for the rest of your life, you should put as much effort into finding the perfect ring. Below are some pointers to guide you along!

Width

Men’s wedding bands do come in various width sizes; they can look differently on different size hands and even feel different. Try on a variety of different widths to decide how wide you would like your ring to be. In general, a thicker ring will be more proportionate to larger hands with long fingers.

Bear in mind that the wider the rings are, the higher the price will be since a larger quantity of precious metal is required. Find the balance between size and price by picking a metal that falls within your budget. For example, white gold costs much lesser but it still looks similar to platinum.

Metal choice 

There are a number of metal types you will encounter during your wedding band search. Today’s options have expanded to include palladium, cobalt and titanium, which offer different properties and characteristics depending on your needs.

But if you still prefer the classics like platinum and white gold, they remain to be popular and desirable choices for wedding bands.

At SK Jewellery, we offer rose gold, white gold and even duo-tone designs for our wedding bands. Duo or two-tone design is composed of white and rose gold metals, which offers a unique spin on the typical ring style. It is trendy and stylish for the modern groom!

Fit

Another consideration is the profile, which refers to the cross section of the ring. It has an impact on the style and shape of the wedding band. For instance, the edges can be flat across the top but rounded on the inside. Popular styles include D-shaped, Flat Court and Slight Court, which offer varying levels of comfort and aesthetic choices.

Our Comfort Fit bands at SK Jewellery feature gently rounded edges, making it easier for you to slide the ring pass your knuckle when wearing or taking it off. Because the inside of the band is slightly domed, it offers a very comfortable fit – especially since you will be wearing your ring on the daily.

Finish

Jewellers incorporate different metalsmithing techniques that will result in different ring finishes. These finishes describe the surface texture of a ring’s metal, which can transform the look and feel of your ring. Want something more classic? A shiny, polished finish is a popular go-to. For a rustic look, a hammered finish might suit you.

The choice of finishes is largely dependent on your aesthetic preferences. But you can also decide based on your wearing habits and maintenance needs to maintain its long-term look. For instance, stippled surfaces hold up better than other matte finishes, while polished and reflective finishes may require yearly touch-ups for their shiny lustre.

Beyond just the surface textures, you can also add details like diamond accents for a more eye-catching look. SK Jewellery’s wedding bands feature stunning diamonds to elevate the style of your ring!
