Men typically prefer a no-fuss wedding band, a single thick band that may or may not have an engraving and for many years, the tradition of the man wearing a wedding ring gradually faded in some societies and it is only since the turn of the century that twin wedding rings became a trend. The majority of guys prefer to have a single metal band with no gems and they would wear the band all the time, proud to show the world they are ‘unavailable’.
Here are the important aspects when choosing a men’s wedding ring.
There are choices that include:
- Yellow gold
- Rose gold
- White gold
Gold would typically be 18k, possibly even 9k, alloyed with other metals to give the ring hardness, as what you would mostly notice from those unique mens wedding rings Brisbane or your city’s top jeweller is offering. The amazing thing about having a wedding ring handcrafted is that it is no more costly than buying a ring in a jewellery store, which is why so many people are choosing custom made solutions. The jeweller has many fine images of men’s wedding ring designs to help you choose something suitable and if you don’t see anything that you like, the jeweller can create the design from scratch.
Some men prefer a thick wedding band, especially if they are tall, as this brings things into proportion. A wide wedding band allows for a special message to be engraved and while they might not tell you, many married men have an engraved message on the inner surface.
You have plenty of choice when it comes to the ring finish. You can choose:
- smooth and shiny – the most popular
- matte – gold and platinum
- satin – machine finish
- sand blasting
One popular style is a twin braid that spiral together and the surface of the ring can be machined to leave a unique texture. If you make contact with a custom jeweller, you can have a short Zoom call to discuss prices and designs and if all looks good, the jeweller can create 3D computer images of the ring, which would be sent to you electronically. Once the design is approved, the jeweller can work his magic and in no time, your wedding ring is ready. Using digital tech, you can go through the entire process remotely and the ring is despatched by special courier to your home address.
It is very fashionable for the bride and groom to have a matching pair of wedding bands, which can be custom made by a leading custom jeweller in your location. You can both choose a unique design that will create a special bond between you; if you would like to discuss designs with a leading custom jeweller, Google is your best friend and the whole process can be done remotely, so there’s no need to meet the jeweller face to face.
