How to Choose Men’s Wedding Rings

Many men are faced with the dilemma of having to think about jewellery for the first time in our lives when it comes to selecting a wedding ring. Firstly, it feels strange to wear a ring and secondly, we don’t have a clue what we want as it is usually the first time we have even had to consider wearing a ring. After a bit of coaxing from a loving fiance and a bit of direction from an experienced jeweller the process of choosing begins. Some of the questions that need to be asked are:

  • What job do you do?
  • Do you play sport?
  • Will you leave the ring on all the time or do you need to take it off regularly? (e.g. for work if a safety issue.)
  • Are you aware of the different properties of the various precious metals available? (How they wear and their relative prices and maintenance?)

From our experience sometimes a couple can have ideas that may need clarification e.g. people often think titanium rings will be expensive but they are in fact a lot more reasonably priced than a similar gold ring equivalent but they will still scratch even though they are very light and strong.

The thing we recommend most is for people to come in to us and try some rings on. Often, someone will try a ring on and decide it is too narrow or too wide, too thick, too square or round etc. Only by trying the rings on can you choose the ring that feels comfortable and looks balanced on your finger.

Fitting (or sizing) of the ring is also very important and is best done by an experienced jeweller who knows how to allow for different temperatures, and larger sizes for wider rings. Advice is often needed to help make informed decisions for a long term comfortable fit. If you are planning on losing weight before the wedding, it is a good idea to let your jeweller know before he makes the ring as this can change the size of the ring considerably.

Do you want to personalise the ring with a message, date or name engraved? How will this wear and what else do you need to consider? Make sure your jeweller is able to advise you.

As Clarity Diamonds specialises in wedding and engagement rings, we have a vast selection of men’s wedding rings and the experience to be able to advise you on what options of rings would be most suitable for each individual person.
