How to Choose a Wedding Band: Men’s Edition
You’ve already found the perfect ring for her, planned a romantic proposal, popped the very important question, and got the confirmation that you’ll be spending the rest of your lives together- How exciting! Amongst the many tasks that come next include shopping for a wedding band. While you may have seen our in-depth guide on wedding bands, outlining when you should start shopping, deciding if they’ll match your partners, and choosing a style, but this guide is all about the men (for once!) Choosing a wedding band for men can be a complicated decision, but we’re here to simplify it!
There is a wide variety of metal options available, and several of them are quite different from the metals that women will choose from. Some of the unconventional metals that work well for men’s bands include titanium, stainless steel, and cobalt to name a few. However, you can’t beat the classic look of gold or platinum. These two metals have stood the test of time, and are truly meant for longevity.
Fit for Growth (or Shrinkage!)
Over time, it’s natural that our bodies will grow or shrink, and your fingers are no exception! Although most metals can never be adjusted, platinum and gold are both made to git these changes! Luckily, this includes all types of gold (yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold). Both platinum and gold can be altered to have your wedding ring sized when growing or shrinkage occurs.
Follow the Trends
While creating something classic is a great option, checking out the latest trends in men’s wedding bands can be a great place to start! One of the popular trends we’ve seen lately is mixing metals. This is a great alternative to a class gold band, and can add a little bit of masculinity to the band. It’s also a great way to compromise with your partner! The groom can now choose his favorite metal and pair it with his partners for a unique look. Adding texture details to the band, such as a hammered finish or milgrain detailing is another trendy approach.
