Have you ever stopped to think about what defining characteristic makes a groom’s wedding band stand out or become more desirable than another? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. Oftentimes, so much importance is placed on the bride’s wedding jewellery that her dearly beloved can become a bit of an afterthought by accident. The exchange of wedding bands on our special day is an important symbol of commitment and love; just as the bride deserves a band selected with the utmost of care, the groom also should have a chance to receive a ring that is comfortable, stylish, and chosen with him in mind. Below, we’ll break down some of the important elements to consider when choosing the groom’s ring. Read on to learn more!
Unlike shopping for engagement rings, you may find that the groom’s bands offer less detailed descriptions or elements to consider. While this is in part because men’s wedding bands are typically less complex than engagement rings, it doesn’t mean that just any ring will do. Many couples choose to select bands that will match, furthering the theme of unity, while giving each of them the opportunity to express their own unique style in the process. Regardless of whether or not you opt to match, you’ll want to keep the following elements in mind:
Just as selecting the right metal for an engagement ring is important, choosing the right material for the groom’s ring will help protect from premature wear and tear over time. If your husband to be often works with his hands, you may want to consider tougher metals like tungsten, titanium, or platinum. If he doesn’t mind having to reshine every now and then, gold can be a beautiful choice to consider as well.
Please note that Platinum is available via special order.
Comfort and Style
If your man isn’t used to wearing jewellery, adapting to wearing a ring on a daily basis can be a bit of a shift. Selecting a style that combines both elegance and comfort will make it easier to adjust and ensure your groom is pleased with his ring. Most men prefer a fit with a closer profile to the finger and bands can typically easily be resized if needed.
