Choosing Your Mens’ Gold Wedding Ring

March 12, 2013 at 12:58 pm

When shopping for mens’ gold wedding rings, there are more options to choose from than ever. Gone are the days in which all mens’ wedding bands were simple yellow gold — today, you can choose from white gold wedding rings, wedding rings surrounded by diamonds, etched designs, rings with frosted gold, and so much more.

Depending on your lifestyle and personal style, you may choose anything from a simple gold band to a ring with a blinged-out diamond face. Consider whether you will wear your ring every day or not — if you do a lot of manual labor with your hands, a simpler ring that won’t get caught on objects is probably best unless you take off the ring to work.

Likewise if you play any sports, anything on your ring that can get caught could be disastrous so it’s recommended to take that into consideration when selecting your ring. Swimming is great exercise but known to lower body temperature, which causes our bodies to shrink slightly, making it easier for your ring to slip off. Be careful doing these activities with your wedding ring.

These days, flat and patterned mens’ gold wedding rings have gained traction in popularity. Good jewelry shops will stay ahead of the trends and stock the latest popular gold wedding rings for men and women – stay away from shops that only carry dated, old designs if you enjoy sporting the latest look.

It has also become more popular to add gemstones to men’s wedding rings, for a more unique look. Of course, these rings are more apt to get caught on fabrics and objects, so take that into consideration when selecting your ring.

In choosing a comfortable wedding band for men, you should also look for a soft curve on the inside of the ring. This will make it more comfortable to wear for long periods of time, an important aspect when you consider that many men aren’t used to wearing rings on their fingers.

Armed with these tips you should be able to select the perfect men’s gold wedding ring for your style and comfort.
