At Orr's, we treat men's wedding bands with great care, always taking our client's preferences and needs into consideration. We know that men play a big part in the process of buying wedding bands, and that's why we believe men deserve to wear amazing, perfectly tailored wedding bands for them. This guide will help you understand all the essentials on men's wedding bands, so you can find the right match for you.
Why is choosing a wedding band for him so important?
Wedding bands in general are meant to signify the love between a couple, and the bands are a symbol that they wear on their hands at the wedding and for the rest of their married lives. For centuries, it was traditional that wedding bands were meant to match in style, because of the idea of soulmates being a matching pair.
However, these days, this tradition is long gone. So, the main concern among couples has gone from finding a matching set of wedding bands to each of the members of the couple finding the right match that would make them happy. Some jewelers tend to focus much more on women's wedding bands, but not us!
We at Orr's give as much attention and care to wedding bands for him as we do for wedding bands for her, because we understand that men are the ones doing most of the planning of the rings and should be just as happy as the bride-to-be when it comes to the ring they'll be wearing from their wedding day onwards.
Tips to choose the best wedding band for him
In order to choose the right wedding band for him, make sure you select a ring that resonates well with your personality, style, lifestyle, and physical appearance. Personality and style in particular are key, because what you love to wear is an indicator of the type of person that you are.
Are you a lover of black, and can see yourself going for a platinum wedding band infused with black details, or do you tend to be more traditional and would prefer to wear a classic yellow gold wedding band? Or, would you dare to wear a wedding band with diamonds, if you're the extravagant type? This is where personality and style comes in. Paying attention to your own style, which you may not think about very often, can help you choose.
The next thing to consider is lifestyle. What do you normally wear on a daily basis in terms of accessories? Grooms who are used to wearing watches and/or bracelets should consider a wedding band material that will match them. That is not to say that it should be the same exact metal, but it needs to at least be harmonious with the other materials in your accessories. Luckily, the stainless steel of many men's watches can be a great match to white gold, platinum, or titanium wedding bands.
Lastly, physical appearance helps you choose. Some metals naturally enhance your features, making you look better in an effortless way. Different metals look better with some people's complexion than others. In general, yellow gold suits warmer to darker complexions, while white gold and silver-tones such as silver, platinum, titanium, and palladium wedding bands are a great match to any undertones.
Now that you've got some idea on how to start looking for your perfect wedding band, let's take a look at these bands by precious metals:
