The Complete Guide For Choosing Men’s Wedding Rings

When it comes to choosing engagement rings, men put in lots of effort to choose the perfect ring for their fiance. We find that when the time comes for them to choose their own wedding ring they don’t really know what to look for.

Our advice is don’t let your wedding ring be an after thought! After all your wedding ring is the one thing that you will wear the rest of your life, you should love it as much as your fiance loves their carefully chosen rings. Check out our few pointers below to help you on your way.

1. METAL

Our wedding ring collection is available in various different metals including platinum, palladium, rose gold, yellow gold and white gold. You can also mix them to create different looks and textures.

PLATINUM

Platinum is extremely strong and durable and is a perfect choice for a ring that will be worn everyday for the rest of your life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PALLADIUM

Palladium is a similar metal to platinum and has the same hard wearing benefits and generally costs less than platinum.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHITE GOLD

White gold is plated in rhodium which creates a bright white colour and is at a lower price point than platinum. White gold does require an upkeep and needs rhodium plated roughly every 5 years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YELLOW GOLD

Yellow gold is a traditional, classic option which can be modernised with different textures and designs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ROSE GOLD

Rose gold is unique and has a vintage look. We have seen a rise in the popularity of rose gold wedding rings in the last few years.

2. WIDTH

Call in and try on wedding rings and widths to find the right one for you. Some men prefer a fine, narrow wedding band whilst others prefer a thicker option. Wider rings tend to be more expensive but you can adjust this with the weight and choice of metal.

3. DETAILING

There is so much variety now when choosing mens wedding rings whether it be a custom design, stone set, celtic, two tone, the options are endless!

We would love to chat to you and help find the perfect ring for you. The options are endless when choosing your wedding ring and anything can be done. Contact us or call in store and we will be happy to guide you through the process of selecting your wedding band.

Treat your diamonds with some TLC

A question we often get asked in store is how to keep your diamonds sparkling and bright! If your diamonds or any stones for that matter are treated correctly they will always be radiant and looking like new.

We see so many gorgeous, white diamonds leave our store and they soon dull due to the wear they are given. It is easy to forget when we wear our rings and jewellery everyday just how precious they truly are. When wearing your jewellery try to avoid contact with hand creams and perfumes – they will coat and dull your stones as well as effecting the metals they are set in. Contact with other metals, particularly door handles and saucepans can wear the metal band of your rings and can turn the whitest metal a little bit yellow.

The best advice we can give our customers is ‘your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off’. 

If you follow these simple steps your diamonds will always be sparkling!

Our stunning diamond Rhythm of Love necklace is the perfect way to show your love – powered by her heartbeat <3
