What to look for when buying a men’s wedding band

March 8th, 2016

 

Now that the engagement ring has been purchased, it’s time to turn the attention back to you and pick out a ring you’ll love just as much as your fiancé loves hers! Gage Diamonds will help you keep the buying process simple, while also showing you a variety of selections that will wow both you and your bride-to-be! Here are a few things to consider when shopping for your wedding band:

Metal: Platinum and gold are the metals traditionally used for men’s wedding rings, however, trends are changing and there are now other metals hitting the scene…such as tungsten and titanium. Gage Diamonds carries one of the most trusted names in the industry- Benchmark and with over 250 bands we will find a style that is right for you.

When selecting your metal, consider something that will compliment your bride’s ring- this may mean selecting the same metal or going with a something more adventurous. Contemporary materials like titanium, tungsten, cobalt chrome and ceramic are becoming increasingly popular and affordable.

Style: The two most popular styles of men’s bands are going to be traditional and contemporary.

Today, some men are adding black diamonds to their bands to “fancy” up their look without outshining their brides stones.

Fit: Men’s wedding bands are typically available in one of two types of interior fit- traditional or comfort. Traditional is an older style that utilizes less material and comfort fit is a newer fit that utilizes more material on the interior for a more rounded fit with less pressure on the finger.

Gage Diamonds’ bands are made to order, so they will be sized to fit the buyer’s specific measurements. It is important to make sure your ring is the right weight and fit.
