Women tend to focus a lot of attention on their engagement ring, from its conception and design right through to the final product. And while some men do get excited about wedding jewelry, many might be overwhelmed by the choices they have to make that come with shopping for wedding band.
Fear not, here are some tips for choosing or creating the perfect wedding band while keeping the latest trends in mind.
Platinum is one of the best choices when it comes to picking a base metal for a wedding band. It is the strongest and most durable metal available. It also has a beautiful look to it, and right now a matte finish is one of the most popular ways to wear it. The matte finish subdues some of the metallic shine to give it a nice toned-down colour and texture.
Many of our men’s wedding bands are offered in Platinum so you can choose to have one of our classic wedding band styles like the WB-6901SP – which displays a unique milgrain outline that accents a brushed centre – in a stylish and modern metal like such as platinum.
Sticking to Something Traditional
If you like to keep it plain and simple – we totally get it. There’s nothing wrong with choosing a ring that will transcend time because it’s rooted in tradition.
When it comes to choosing a traditional ring, the type of metal and the thickness of the ring are the two things to think about. The traditional choice of metal would be yellow gold, but do you want a white gold ring or perhaps rose gold? Do you prefer a thinner cut to a ring or do you like the look of a denser piece?
We have a beautiful selection of wedding bands of all kinds to guide your decision.
We want you to have a happy wedding and that starts with making the right choices when it comes to one of the most important symbol of marriage and love – the ring.
