In this article, we will be discussing the ins and outs of mens wedding bands. Just like the engagement ring, the wedding band is something that you will be wearing for life. For this reason, its important to choose a style that fits your personality and will retain its timeless appeal over the years. Read on to learn more about choosing the perfect ring…
Metal Type: Platinum, Gold, Tungsten and Palladium
Platinum is a precious metal known for its durability. It is more maliable than gold, so scratches can simply be polished and smoothed out. It is also an excellent choice for people with skin allergies.
Yellow gold is often through of as the classic precious metal when it comes to wedding rings, as it is extremely versatile in terms of styles and complements a variety of skin tones.
White gold is one of the most popular recent choices for mens wedding bands. It is created by mixing pure gold with an alloy. White gold is also one of the metals of choice for many modern engagement rings, so it may be a good choice if you wish to match the colour of your wedding ring with that of your partners.
Palladium is very similar to platinum in terms of its durability. It is also a good choice for people who are allergic to nickel, which can be found in white gold.
Tungsten is a popular metal which is quite inexpensive. For this reason, many clients may choose a larger and heavier tungsten ring. It is also very comfortable to wear and is very scratch resistant. One thing to keep in mind is that tungsten can not be sized and can be prone to shattering if it is dropped.
Textures and finishes…
Matte finishes give the ring a less shiny but modern feel. These rings may have a matte finish over the entire surface or have smoothed edges for contrast like in the mens wedding band shown above.
The above mens nugget ring features a beautiful textured finish which was created during the wax carving stage of the jewellery design process.
