The modern man is a highly-evolved creature, distinct from his predecessors in the way he values his look. With marriage on the table comes, of course, a wedding ring to be worn every day after the fact. If your fiancé is the type to want to look good, you’re going to want to make sure his wedding band fits the bill.
Many of us will simply default to searching for a ring in the tried-and-true styles of yesteryear, but in this day and age, the market has so much more to offer. Read on to get the full scoop on what you should be paying attention to as you search for the perfect ring for your partner.
The Metal Makes the Band: Why Settle for the Obvious?
Sure, gold and platinum boast attributes that are quite attractive to the majority of us. As pragmatists, however, we do feel obligated to advise your wandering eye: there are many practicalities to consider. One of the most pressing for most couples will inevitably be price.
Cobalt is one type of men’s wedding band rapidly ascending in popularity. It generally comes with a much more affordable price tag and is able to emulate the look of more expensive precious metals at a fraction of the cost.
Durability should also be taken into consideration, especially if your guy happens to be working with his hands or under conditions where his wedding ring may become dirty or damaged (we do recommend not wearing such an important piece of jewelry under these circumstances, perhaps substituting it for an extremely inexpensive dummy ring until he’s safe at home in your arms). The hardiest contenders at your disposal? Tungsten, surprisingly enough, completely takes the cake in this category. Titanium and palladium are close seconds. All three types of metal will be tough enough to stand up in the face of even the most challenging occupation.
Once those two factors have been thoroughly mulled-over, it’s safe to start thinking about the two more classically-recognized choices, gold and platinum. Both carry with them status – a minimal gold men’s wedding band happens to be one of our favorite iconic styles. Platinum acts as the perfect canvas for diamonds but works just as well unadorned.
