When it comes to picking out a wedding ring for a man, it’s hard to know where to begin. What size do you get? What kinds of metal? What style? It’s pretty daunting. That’s why we’ve put together these 5 tips to help you.
- Lifestyle Considerations
Don’t overlook his lifestyle when choosing a wedding ring. Many men select their ring with a style or design in mind, but fail to consider their lifestyle. When choosing the ring, think about his day to day activities. For instance, if he swims regularly, then choosing a detailed wedding ring or diamond band is impractical as it will be affected by salt water and harsh elements. If he spends most of his time outdoors or working with machinery, a matte or satin finish is a great choice as it’s fairly scratch proof. Talk to the leading professional jewellers for ideas.
- Take Someone Shopping with You
Having a second opinion is a great idea. Bring along your fiancée or even a grooms-men who knows his personal style. If you do have an idea in mind already, still take someone along who may consider factors you hadn’t thought about, be it budget, lifestyle or even comfort.
- Think About Personal Style
When choosing a ring for a man, consider his personal style. There are so many styles and metals available. Whether he prefers to take risks or has a more minimalistic style, the ring should reflect his personal style. There is always a selection of men’s wedding rings for all tastes, style and budgets.
- Don’t Forget About Comfort
Just as important as style is comfort. Before a wedding band, many men haven’t worn much jewellery in their time. So, it goes without saying that wearing a wedding ring can feel odd, even uncomfortable. That means it’s important to make sure that when trying bands on, he will feel perfectly comfy. If he has already seen a ring that he really likes the look of, but it doesn’t quiet feel right or sit nicely on his finger, you may want to choose a more old-fashioned style of ring that is going to be comfortable on his finger.
- Don’t Dismiss the Bling
Today, many men’s wedding and even engagement rings are becoming more and more popular. And, that means you really don’t have to miss out on any of the fun. Whether he prefers a rose gold, yellow gold or white gold finish, his wedding band is a great alternative to the classic, more traditional styles and are a fantastic choice for modern grooms. If you’re not sure if diamonds are for him, the only way to find out is to try a couple of different options on. Whether he prefers a modern wedding band, a detailed satin finish or a whole lot of bling, there are men’s wedding rings to suit all tastes, budgets and lifestyles.
