“Men don’t often wear jewelry like women do”, one article writer said. I beg to differ today men wear as much and a wider variety of jewelry than they did even 10 years ago. Today’s man is stylish and fashion conscious.
Men have it easy, the most important part of the wedding ring ensemble for the female is the engagement ring, most of the time. As long as the wedding band directs attention to the brilliance of the diamond she is satisfied. Men on the other hand are generally more concern with comfort first then everything else falls into place.
When looking for a wedding band the very first thing to consider is the type of work that you do. Some metals like Gold are soft and if you are a carpenter, electrician or in any other field that requires that you use your hands strenuously then Gold may not be the best choice. It will gent bent or dented very easily.
Try tungsten, titanium or platinum, these are very sturdy metals and they look great too. You could also look at some of the more unique metal choice. Steel is a great metal that will stand the test of time and can be manipulate and engraved for a truly one-o-a-kind wedding band. Ask your jeweler to show you some of their wedding bands made from different types of metal. You never know what will strike you as being just what you were looking for.
Traditional wedding bands are a matched pair but today that is not the only option. If you and the bride agree that you should be as happy with your ring as she is with hers, then get the ring of your drams even if it doesn’t match. One of the most beautiful gestures we have heard of is when the couple design one another’s wedding band.
The wedding band you choose will be your symbol of love for the rest of your life. It is the one item of jewelry that will have to go with every outfit you own. Learn more about ring choices on the iWedPlanner website and use the free resource guide to find a wedding jeweler near you.
