One of the most important pieces of jewelry for a man is his wedding band. Choosing a band that matches his style will ensure that he will be comfortable wearing his ring. When shopping, keeping his personality in mind will allow you to choose a ring that is as unique as he is. If you're shopping for a matching set, you could choose a ring that will compliment yours while showcasing him as an individual. You have various options when it comes to shopping for men's band including the type of metal, shape, and detail. Consider the following options
when shopping for your man's wedding band:
Type of Metal
Men's wedding rings are crafted from several metals such as gold, sterling silver, and platinum. The choices can be overwhelming but considering your man's lifestyle and type of work can narrow down the choice. These are more traditional metals and can be easily matched to a set. If you're looking for something more masculine, selecting an industrial metal like tungsten is the choice for you. Men and women alike may stay away from jewelry for health reasons, so platinum is a hypoallergenic metal for sensitive skin.
There are a variety of shapes to choose from when buying a wedding band. It is important to note that most men aren't accustomed to wearing jewelry. Going with a comfort-fit wedding band will minimize the contact between the band and skin. This will keep his hand from getting irritated by this new piece of daily wear. Half-round wedding rings fall in line with a more traditional style with a curved exterior.
Details and Other Embellishments
For a man who is no fuss and laid back, forgoing additional details and sticking with a classic design is ideal. There are many options to personalize a man's ring without choosing a unique color or overloading it with gemstones. Men who enjoy the outdoors or are characteristically rugged, leaving rings behind, some bands feature leather braids, tribal designs or spinner functions.
