Men’s Wedding Rings

In the back of your mind, you might have an idea of the ideal Tuxedo, the right pair of shoes (that you can’t wait to put on for that first dance with your beautiful bride) or even the band you intend to invite to play at your wedding. But somewhere in the whole grueling process of wedding preparations, taking out the time to decide on the perfect men’s wedding ring ends up to be a step overlooked (or worst, forgotten).

Especially since jewelry has always been something that has offered a lot more choices to women than men, it’s natural to have a tough time deciding on ‘the one’ wedding band. Though please note that the groom-to-be(s) today have just as many options (especially in our collection). They just need the right guide by their side to lead the way to the perfect band which is precisely why we’re here for. Right from coming up with the right budget to deciding among a wide pool of options, let’s get all your queries answered once and for all:

The Ultimate Guide to shop for Men’s Wedding Band the right way

  • Budget
    Despite how tedious it might appear to be, deciding on a budget and above all, sticking to it is paramount. If it is of any help, the average cost that men pay for their wedding bands lies somewhere around $600 in US.

    But don’t take it to mean that it is some sort of set pattern that you need to abide by. In fact, finalizing a budget doesn’t come along with any hard and fast rules. Your preferences will eventually lead you towards your comfort budget (i.e., the budget you and your future spouse are both happy with). By preferences, we mean- narrowing down on the kind of Band that you would prefer (simple or designer), the ring style that you wish to go for (classic, embellished, more detailed), or even the width of your band, etc. That’s because all of these factors have their significant share of influence on the price of the band.

    So, prioritize the factors that are important to you so in case you’re running on a tight budget, you can compromise on the ones that are not.

  • Width
    You might not pay much heed to this factor, only to later realize that it, very evidently, demands your attention. While deciding on the right ring width comes down to your choice of aesthetics, please be informed that it also impacts the price of the Band. So, make sure to consider both of these factors.

    Also Remember- nothing works quite like a little hit and trial when it comes to arriving at the right width band (especially if you’re clueless to begin with). Try on a number of bands, see what works for you, and you’ll be good to decide. Let your aesthetics lead the way! Are you all about big and bold accessories? Rely on a thick band that is maybe around 8 mm in width. (however, please note that they also fetch a higher price tag since more metal is needed to craft them). Or do you like to keep it classic and understated? What better than a thin and dainty band, not more than 4-5 mm in size when that’s the case. ( the best part: you might as well save some bucks here). A handy tip would be to also consider the kind of lifestyle you lead so that the band you go for fits with it.

    In case you wish to get a better idea, the common width of men’s wedding bands averages around 6 mm.

  • The type of Band
    Let’s explore the many choices of bands that you’re facilitated with before deciding on the one that suits your aesthetics and lifestyle:
    1. Doomed
      Hailed as one of the most classic cum elegant band shapes out there, this Band resembles the shape of a Doom (hence the name). That is because it features a flat interior but a rounded or curved exterior. The curvature of the band also allows it to be comfortably worn everyday.

    2. Flat
      Just how the name suggests, a Flat Shaped Wedding Band is flat inside out (i.e., from the interior as well as the exterior). It offers you a sleek and clean look, which makes it super easy to be stacked with other rings. Those who prefer a minimal style, look no further!

    3. Beveled
      This attention-catching style features a flat surface on the interior of the ring, but the exterior surface of the ring is angled or sloped (which creates a distinctive edge that can be seen and felt). If modern and extraordinary is the kind of aesthetics you prefer, a Beveled Wedding Band would sure fit in your criteria.

    4. Knife-Edge 
      A Knife-Edge is characterized by a sharp, angular edge along the exterior of the band that is reminiscent of the blade of a knife. The interior, on the other hand, is often flat. So, it’s a modish design that looks anything but ordinary (if that’s what you like).

    5. Coin
      Uniquely beautiful, a coin shape wedding band is made to resemble a coin. The band is typically flat and wide, with a rounded edge but a raised (also rounded) center that shares an uncanny resemblance with the face of a coin.

    6. Step
      You’d distinguish a Step Shape Wedding Band by the modern and geometric look that it offers. It usually encompasses a series of flat, distinct levels or steps on the exterior surface of the band. The interior of the ring can be flat, rounded, or another shape.

  • Finish
    The finish of a wedding band refers to the texture or surface treatment that is applied to the exterior of the band to achieve a certain look or feel. Let’s take a look at the many options that you have:
    1. Finely Polished
      If a simple, sleek look is your clear choice of preference for the big day, you might want to get your hands on a finely polished band. The band is well-polished over the surface to mask any flaws, and reward it with the kind of shine that is hard to look past.

    2. Satin
      A Satin Finish can be a good go-to for the ones that prefer an understated yet classy look. It is defined by a soft and silky appearance, similar to the sheen of a satin fabric. It doesn’t shine as much as the finely polished bands, but has a subtle luster that has an appeal of its own.

    3. Matte
      Characterized by a muted appearance, a Wedding Band with Matte Finish is quite non-reflective yet highly elegant. It resembles a Satin Finish but with a lot more understated appeal.

    4. Sandblasted 
      A Sandblasted finish is one of the most distinctive and unconventional finishes out there, the texture of which sets it apart. In fact, it is achieved by using a high-pressure stream of sand (to be precise, blasted with sand, hence the name) or any other abrasive material to create a rough and grainy surface on the metal.

    5. Brushed
      It is defined by a fine, linear pattern to a coarser, more pronounced texture that looks close to strokes of brush. You’ll find it to resemble a Satin finish, with the simple difference being that it is not as smooth.

    6. Hammered
      You may have guessed it by now! So Yes, this finish is actually achieved by hammering the metal with a specialized tool that creates a series of small dents and irregularities on the surface of the metal. It will appear to be quite rustic, deeply textured, and distinctively unique.

  • Choice of Metal
    Never let your choice of Metal be an afterthought. You’d be surprised to witness the kind of different the right metal makes. Not only does it influence the aesthetics of your ring, but plays a major part in determining the durability as well. For traditional occasions like weddings, we’d always recommend you to go for gold. However, you might have to make a choice between the three tones of Gold. Spoiler Alert: They’re poles apart from one another, but beautiful in their own way.

    1. White Gold
      Classic is the word you’d label this neutral-toned metal tone with. It carries an ethereal shine and brilliance while reflecting a white-silvery hue. So, if it’s an understated look that you’re chasing, you’re laying your eyes on the right tone of metal.

    2. Yellow Gold
      Being a beautiful blend of luxurious and traditional, Yellow Gold is a refined choice to go for. It gives off an opulent yellow-orange hue that goes with any and every skin tone. It’s one of the most popular choices for wedding rings.

    3. Rose Gold
      Rose Gold is defined by a soft, rosy pink hue that sets it apart. You’ll find it to be feminine, romantic, and all things sweet. So, if you wish to ditch the traditions this one time, it could be the perfect gateway to it.

      Apart from that, don’t forget to get your hands on the metal purity that aligns with your priorities. While 10K offers you the least purity, it’s the most durable. On the other hand, 18K will impress you with its purity, but isn’t as reliable when it comes to durability (since it is quite soft and malleable). So, it’s best to come to a middle ground and go for 14K Gold. That’s because it strikes the perfect balance between purity and durability and offers you the best of both worlds.
