How To Choose A Mens Wedding Ring

How To Choose A Mens Wedding Ring 2017-09-20T11:52:25+00:00

Whether you’re looking for a wedding ring, or a dress ring, sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. Which metal? What size? What width? What if you get it wrong? With so much choice, it can be overwhelming, which is why we’ve created this buyers’ guide.

Step 1 – Know Your Size.

Knowing your size will quickly help you determine what rings are immediately available to you. We’ve created a “How to find your ring size” guide that will help you do just that. Once you know your ring size, you can then go to our “All Mens Rings” category and use the size filter on the right hand side to only show which designs are available in your size. Keep in mind that we are often able to produce custom sizes in most designs, so if you are happy to wait a little longer, and pay a little more, you may not want to filter by size, so that you can see all of the designs available.

Step 2 – Choose Your Metal.

With a wide range of metals now available, it’s a good idea to know which metals will not only suit your tastes, but also your lifestyle. Precious metals have hundreds of years of tradition behind them, and can be resized, but modern metals like titanium and tungsten are hardier when it comes to everyday life. Titanium is light and strong and more scratch resistant that precious metals like gold and platinum, but is still not scratch proof. Tungsten is quite heavy on the finger, but is virtually scratch proof. No one metal is better than all the others, as they all have strengths and weaknesses. Only you can decide which metal is best for you. Check out our metals comparison chart for more information.

Once you know which metal you want, you can filter the results by material, and quickly remove all rings that aren’t made from that metal. Now we’re getting somewhere!

Step 3 – Do You Have A Specific Width In Mind?

Are you looking for a slimmer ring? Or are you after a bold dress ring for special occasions? If you know what width you’re looking for, you can also filter by width by using the filter on the right hand side of our online catalogue.

Step 4 – Find A Design That YOU Like.

Remember, you will be the one wearing the ring, so it’s important that you are comfortable with the design. Do like brushed or polished? Rounded or flat? Maybe you like two-tone rings, or rings with a non-metallic inlay like wood or carbon fiber. Whatever you like, make sure it is something that you will enjoy wearing. If you’re looking for something a little more fashionable, check out our “Collections” in the “Shop Mens Rings By” menu above.

Step 5 – Remember That You Can Change Your Mind!

Unless you have purchased a custom made ring, we offer a 60 day change of mind guarantee. If you don’t like the size, width, or design of the ring, simply send it back, and we’ll help you to choose one that will be more suitable.
