The classic men’s wedding ring is a simple band that contains no diamonds or additional details. Typically, these traditional wedding rings for men are made in either plain gold or platinum. While yellow gold is the more traditional choice, some men do prefer the look of white gold. Additionally, as the color continues to gain popularity amongst both sexes, 14k and 18k rose gold wedding rings are available for men as well.

How To Choose A Man’s Wedding Ring

When it comes time to pick out the wedding bands, choosing the man’s wedding ring is always difficult. Although some chalk this up to men not caring about jewelry, others think men are unable to decide. Another issue that occurs is the man’s taste may differ drastically from his future bride’s. In many cases, choosing a man’s wedding ring comes down to simple comfort and making a few compromises. In order to help future newlyweds, this guide helps you choose the ring wedding band for your new husband.

Does His Ring Have To Match Her Ring?

A primary issue in selecting wedding bands is many people believe that the bride and groom’s ring must match exactly. This can make the process difficult, especially if the bride wants her ring to be part of a matched set. In these scenarios, it is possible that the groom ends up with a ring he wears solely out of obligation. To avoid this problem, give your future husband a little freedom to choose a ring he likes. Instead of an exact ring match, provide some direction based off your choice of wedding band. For example, if both your engagement ring and wedding band are white gold with complex, hand engraved designs, allow your man to choose either a simple white gold wedding band. Or allow him to choose a matching design in a different metal. While the rings won’t match exactly, they will compliment one another.

Comfort Truly Matters

Many men do not wear jewelry on a daily basis, but getting married means wearing a wedding ring every day. To help your future husband get used to wearing a wedding band, it is very important to choose a style that is comfortable for him. Many men’s wedding rings are designed with rounded edges which provides more comfort. Additionally, consider his career when choosing a man’s wedding ring. If he brings home the bacon by using his hands every day, he will need a ring that can easily be removed before getting his hands dirty. By choosing a comfortable band, you can be sure the band will return right back to his ring finger as soon as the job is done.

The Right Wedding Ring Is The One He’ll Enjoy Wearing

Overall, the best wedding ring for your future husband is the one he enjoys wearing all the time. If you have a particular style you are set on, try to find a happy middle ground that will allow him to wear a comfortable ring. Whether that means matching metals or giving him total freedom will depend on the couple. However, if you are having a difficult time compromising, there is one more possible solution: engraving. While you may have different tastes, having both of the wedding bands engraved on the inside provides a lasting connection. You could get some lyrics from the song of your first dance, a simple phrase, or even the date of your wedding. Just remember: no matter what ring he picks, he’s still your husband, and the symbolism of the eternal unbroken circle of love means way more than if your man’s wedding ring style matches.
