Guide to Buying a Mens Wedding Ring | Man of Many

As you’re likely to know, rings offer all sorts of various widths, and mens wedding rings are no exception. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll boil width down to slim (4mm), medium (6mm) or wide (8mm) styles. That is, do you want a slimmer ring, a medium width ring, or a wider ring? Before answering, you should be aware that most men choose bands that are at least 4mm wide, that wider rings typically cost more, and that larger or longer fingers generally go better with wider rings. Of course, ultimately it’s up to you what looks best on your finger, and you’ll definitely want to try on a few rings of various widths to see how they look and feel. If you already know the width you want, and feel like buying your ring online, Mens Rings Online makes the process supremely easy. Simply peruse their catalogue and use the filter at the top to find the width you’re looking for. The site also offers a 60 day change of mind guarantee, just in case you discover that maybe a slimmer or wider band was the way to go.

Choosing a Mens Wedding Ring Width

Landing on the right material is probably the most important part of choosing a mens wedding band. Thankfully, the options aren’t so varied that you’ll spend months overthinking it, with most mens wedding rings coming in one of the following metals: white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, platinum, palladium, titanium and stainless steel. That’s joined by a growing list of alternative metals like tungsten and zirconium, which are gaining in popularity. Okay, so maybe you have a lot of options after all.

How to Fit and Size Your Wedding Ring

Choosing a Style & Finish for Your Wedding Ring

When determining the budget for your wedding ring, just remember that most men keep it affordable these days. Hence, there’s no reason to go overboard.

Deciding on a Budget for Your Men’s Wedding Band

Of course, if you do want to go overboard, you should seek out a diamond-encrusted ring or a platinum ring, followed by palladium, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and then silver. Beyond that, you get into modern metal territory (titanium, tungsten, etc). In summary, precious metals will usually cost more and modern metals will usually cost less. The good news is that there’s no shortage of incredible mens rings that can be purchased for just a few hundred dollars, especially if you’re going with metals like tungsten or titanium. Peruse Mens Rings Online’s catalogue and sort by “price” to see for yourself.

Different Wedding Band Material Prices

Before you purchase your men’s wedding ring, you should ask yourself how often you plan to wear it. For example, are you going to be one of those dudes who basically wears his ring at all hours of the day or night? Or will you be a guy who only slips it on during work hours and for special occasions? Once you’ve figured that out, you can proceed accordingly, remembering that most precious metals (outside of platinum) are prone to wear, and most modern metals aren’t.
