Are you on the hunt for platinum wedding bands for men? Take a look at what you should consider when shopping for that special piece of jewellery.
Platinum Wedding Bands
When it comes to selecting a wedding band for a man, there are many things to consider. Why? It’s not only women who care about this significant band of metal. That’s right, he’ll be wearing this ring on his finger for the rest of his life too, therefore style, size and metal choice are all aspects that should not be overlooked, regardless of gender.
However, it’s more likely for the woman to be more enthusiastic about wedding band shopping: will it sit perfectly with her engagement ring? Is the diamond big enough? Is it too blingy? Men don’t mull over questions such as this when it’s their turn to decide on a wedding band, but on the other hand, wedding jewellery does need a bit more attention – he’s not picking out costume jewellery here!
So, as a man, what do you need to bear in mind when shopping for that significant symbol of love for your lifelong commitment?
First things first, you need to decide on whether you want a classic or modern wedding ring. Classic bands tend to be plain whereas modern styles are more varied and can include precious stones such as diamonds or sapphires.
Wedding bands with gemstones are particularly popular amongst those men who are more fashion forward as it means they are able to demonstrate this part of them through their jewellery. How? If diamonds and sapphires are on trend, what better way to incorporate these gorgeous stones than in their wedding bands! Men may also decide to opt for a wedding band with a stone to complement their bride’s ring.
There is a wide range of metal options available for men’s wedding rings including gold, silver, platinum and titanium. Platinum wedding bands are a popular choice as they stand the test of time. Whilst it’s all very well choosing a metal based on what you personally prefer the look of, fundamentally it comes down to durability and lifestyle too.
For those men who don’t wear jewellery, the idea of wearing a ring every day seems unnatural. However, the width of the ring can really make a difference and help make it easy to adjust to donning a wedding band 24/7. Narrow bands can be easier to get used to but can often look small on men’s fingers, so if you’re a bigger build, a broader band is likely to suit you better. On the other hand, if you’re used to wearing jewellery, a wider band may be perfect for you!
So, now you know what to consider when shopping for a wedding ring, you’re ready to shop! Take a look at our wide selection of platinum wedding bands and find the perfect one for you.
