Although most people believe that the wedding night seals the deal on a lifetime commitment, it is the wedding ring, or rather exchange of rings that seals the deal. In weddings, it’s like signing a contract, one that binds two souls (hopefully) forever or for as long as the couple thinks it’s a good idea. Either way wedding bands are a reflection of the person’s style as well. After all, you’ll be wearing that ring for a long time and it does represent your devotion to the person you love, so shouldn’t it reflect that from an aesthetic point of view as well?
When we think of picking out a wedding ring, we assume that men’s rings are easier than women because men aren’t usually bothered by the size of the rock in the middle or the number of carats and things like that but there are several factors to consider.
Finding the right ring from a jeweller in Brisbane is equally important for the groom. There are a lot of things to keep in mind when buying a wedding ring for a man. For starters, there’s the choice of metal. Do they want gold, platinum, silver, titanium or Tungsten? The gold of course is the most expensive, while the other materials drop in price, some considerably like the Tungsten. Of course if you’re really on a budget, you can opt to go for something a little more unconventional like finding one at a street fair or new age shop. There are a lot of homemade wedding bands, some with Celtic oval bands or Claddagh rings which will serve the purpose just the same.
Another thing to consider is the comfort level of the wedding ring. It has to fit and fit well. The finger has to breathe otherwise it will become inflamed, making it difficult to remove down the line. The right measurements are essential to finding a ring that’s comfortable and it doesn’t take the long to do and can save you money. Why? That’s because an uncomfortable ring might require resizing down the line which equals spending more money to get it done.
Durability is as important as any other factor you’d consider when buying a man’s engagement ring. The thicker the ring is the longer it will last. Remember that once the wedding ring is on the finger it rarely leaves a man’s hand. This means that when they wash their hands, pump gas, or work on their car, they’ll be exposing the ring to the same things as the skin on their hands. Depending on the metal you choose, be it gold, silver, etc., will also determine how thick your ring should be. To figure out what’s best you’ll need to consult with a specialist at a Brisbane jeweller.
Lastly, we have to talk about the design and the style of the ring. As we mentioned before, most men aren’t too picky. So something as tasteful as a gold or silver band will be as aesthetically please as a ring with diamonds, and yes, some men’s rings do have diamonds.
Every design is different just as every finger size and individual taste is different. It’s ultimately up to the wearer to make sure they are happy with a selection that’s also practical before leaving the jewellery store.
