5 Tips for Choosing Mens Wedding Bands

For men, choosing a wedding band to symbolize the lifetime of love between he and his wife can be a pretty overwhelming task. I mean, you are going to be wearing it the rest of your life, so you need to make sure the ring you get is something you will always love. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop around.

5 Tips for Choosing Mens Wedding Bands

  1. What kind of lifestyle do you have? If you do manual labor every day, you will want a ring that is durable for your work. However, if you work in an office and wear a suit every day, you make be looking for something sophisticated and classy, such as a platinum band.
  2. What is your personality? For the fun and fearless man, you may want to consider a tungsten or titanium ring designed especially for you. Many men are even opting for a two-tone ring for more versatility.
  3. Check for comfort. You are going to be wearing this wedding band every day for the rest of your life, so you should absolutely make sure that the ring you choose isn’t awkward feeling or too tight.
  4. Which metal do you prefer? There are plenty of options to choose from: titanium, tungsten, gold, platinum, or silver. Gold is the most popular, but frankly it’s the plain way to go. Titanium is incredibly durable but good luck resizing it if you lose or gain a few pounds over the years. Tungsten is inexpensive and has been increasingly popular this year; they are very scratch resistant but these can’t be resized, either. Silver is another typical choice. It’s less expensive than gold, but it shows wear pretty easily, so this might not be your best option.
  5. Looking for bling? Lately, many men have been choosing rings with a little extra flare by adding gemstones. The more outgoing men select to deck out their wedding band with diamonds while those who are more low-key are happy with just one gem on their ring.
