Everyone knows that it can be hard to buy a ring for a woman. But it can be hard to get the right ring for a man too!
Picking an engagement ring was probably the hardest piece that you had to shop for. However, the choices for a man’s wedding ring are increasing. You might wonder where you even start when you stare at the whole collection.
Here are some tips for picking out the perfect band.
Price. Know how much you can comfortably spend on a ring. Even though a wedding ring is very important, a wedding and married life can be very expensive. You might not want to spend much on your wedding band. Many couples start out cheaper and buy a better ring in a few years.
Durability. A man who works with his hands is going to need a stronger band than someone with a desk job. Some men are not able to wear their rings to work. Gold is very popular, but it can be pretty weak. Some other popular choices include silver, platinum, and titanium.
Sizing. Since some rings cannot be resized after you buy them, you need to make sure you pick the correct size. You must also remember that during the ceremony, your hands might sweat, and it might not slide on easily. However, you need to get a correct fitting ring in the first place.
Design. Some bands have engraved cultural or religious symbols to make them more meaningful. Some popular symbols are Celtic symbols, which are popular with Irish men.
Style. Some men like the classic plain wedding band. Others prefer diamonds or other jewels to be in the band. It depends on how flashy you want your wedding band to be.
Complement your new wife’s ring. Your rings do not have to match perfectly, but they should look nice together. You will take a few pictures of your hands with your rings, so you want them to complement each other.
Picking out a wedding band for a man requires shopping around too. Before all of the choices, most men would simply go into a store and pick out a gold band. Now, you need to decide how hard you will be on a ring. Will gold or silver be enough, or do you need something more durable? Are you interested in diamonds or another type of stone? How about cultural symbols?
