The venue is booked, your suit is sorted, thestag weekendis in the diary and the honeymoon is beckoning. But before you get too distracted by the promise of beers by the pool and sex on the beach, there is one more thing you must do. It’s time to get yourself some marital bling with men's wedding rings.
To take the pain out of the process, here is a guide to the materials you could consider for your wedding band. And it’s not all about twinkle and sparkle, it’s about making a sensible buying decision. So, what do you need to consider? Well, there’s durability (it needs to last a lifetime), comfort (because you’re going to be wearing it for a lifetime) and less obviously, ease of maintenance (because life’s too short to polish a ring).
And try to be open to new possibilities. There is more to men's wedding rings than gold, platinum and silver. It’s true; these precious materials hold secure positions in the metal royalty due to their intrinsic value, quality and prestigious reputation. But the newcomers are gaining ground. As you will see from the guide prices below, the more unusual materials are usually kinder on the wedding budget.
Talking of budgets, for every material we have provided a guide price for a standard, traditional 4mm band in a size N. All prices are based on quotes from WeddingRings-Direct.com in May 2018.
