Gone are the days when all wedding rings were gold. Today’s metals are more varied and versatile. Titanium is a wonderful example. The metal is harder than the relatively soft gold, so better resists dings and scratches. Like gold, it is available in multiple colors. Plus, different surface treatments. Your brushed or polished titanium ring may be black, pewter / gray color, or two toned. It can be plated with gold, showcase etched or carved designs, include a black fiber inlay, or feature a channel of diamonds. Finally, many titanium ring styles are made in both men’s and women’s styles, […]

As previously mentioned, it’s important to consider everyday wear and tear when choosing a wedding ring, especially if you work with your hands a lot. You may automatically begin looking at gold rings, but remember that gold is a relatively soft metal and rings made from gold can quickly become scratched. Platinum rings are more durable and resemble white gold. The much higher price, however, may be beyond your budget. Many couples are considering tungsten carbide for one or both of the wedding bands. Tungsten combined with carbide is a very hard metal. Bands — such as the one at […]
Most women wear their wedding rings at all times, taking them off only for certain tasks. For some men, however, the decision is not as easy. When choosing a wedding band for your fiance, consider what he does during work and play and what effect that may have on a ring.

Even if his company allows it, the job could be rough on jewelry in some way — rubbing off the finish, denting the metal, or loosening […]
For some men, whether to have gemstones on the wedding band is a big decision. Like all other choices involving his ring, it is a matter of personal preference. It is perfectly acceptable for a men’s wedding ring to include gemstones. It is a matter of what fits his style, taste, personality, and the kind of work and play he does. If his wedding band will get a lot of wear and tear, he may not want one. If he does opt for gemstones, the preferred ones are diamonds, sapphires (in all colors), and rubies.

If your man is a big guy, his hands are large, or he has long fingers, he can handle a wider width wedding band than someone smaller. Smaller width rings are likely to look diminished on his large finger, so choose an average-width or slightly wider band.

The most popular widths for men are 6 and 7 mm. If you are thinking to uby one wider than 7mm, bear in mind that […]
