Unique Wedding Band Ideas For Men

Let's face it. You probably don't have all the nuances of ring sizes, styles and materials conveniently stored in your memory, and when it comes to your wedding band, the pressure goes way up. You can't ditch your wedding band if you get tired of it in a few years. This ring will be in your wedding photos, and people (read: your bride-to-be) will expect to see it on your finger. Always.

We discuss the options available for men (well, most of them anyway) to help you figure out the right ring!

What to Consider When Making Your Choice

Before you commit, consider these key questions:

  • Do you have preference for a certain metal or material? More important - do you have any allergies that could influence your choice?
  • Do you want to make a statement, or do you prefer a traditional design?
  • What color do you want to see on your left hand every day?
  • How much do you want to spend?
  • Is there an heirloom headed your way (or already in your possession) you may want to wear?

5 Simple Steps To Choosing the Right Wedding Band

  • Pick Your Metal – Typically men’s wedding bands are made from:
  • White gold
  • Rose gold
  • Yellow gold
  • Platinum
  • Titanium
  • Stainless steel
  • Showcase Your Personality and Factor in Your Lifestyle

Do you have a job or hobby that could potential damage your ring? Spend a lot of time lifting heavy weights or working with tools? You might want to consider a more durable ring.

The most durable ring types are lower carat golds, platinum, palladium, titanium, and tungsten.

If you like the classics, pick a simple gold or silver band. If you’re a bit bolder, try a rose gold ring for men or something with a unique design.

  • Be Nice To The Budget

Men’s wedding bands can cost anywhere from R 1000 (titanium) to R20 000 (platinum), with the average price being around R3 000 – R5 000.00

If you’ve got more budget to play with, platinum is always a great option. If not, I’d avoid platinum because it’s a bit pricier.

Lower carat gold is also less expensive because they have larger percentages of metal alloys in their makeup. 14k yellow, white, or rose gold are good options. Palladium is also a good lower-cost alternative to white gold and platinum.

  • Ask Yourself: Can I See Myself Wearing This Every Day?

Generally speaking, most men have never worn jewellery on their fingers. So, naturally the feeling of sporting a wedding ring can feel uncomfortable, at least at first. Which means it’s important to ensure that when trying on wedding rings, you feel comfortable with what is currently on your finger.

  • Don’t Be Shy of Shining!

These days, men’s diamond engagement and wedding rings are becoming increasingly more popular. And, well why should men miss out on all of the fun? Whether you prefer a white gold, yellow gold or a rose gold finish, men’s diamond wedding bands are an alternative to a more traditional, classic style and provide an appropriate option for the modern day groom. Not too sure if diamonds are your style? Well, the only way to find out is to try one on!
