Best Wedding Rings For Men Buying Guide

Hopefully you have been inspired by our top picks of wedding rings for men, but if you wish to keep browsing here are some key considerations to bear in mind when making your choice.

Ring Size

The first consideration is ring size, because it is very frustrating to have to send a wonderful ring back to the makers if it doesn’t fit you properly, and it is also an extra cost to get a ring resized.

Rings come in a range of standardized sizes (just like shoes and clothes) and these sizes range from 5-13 for the average male, with half sizes available in most good manufacturers. 

Always measure your finger rather than estimating or simply looking at a diagram.

Measure your finger by tying string or ribbon around it and then marking where the string meets. Then lie the marked string alongside a straight ruler and record the length in centimeters.

Next look up the ring sizing chart for your specific ring and you will find out which size correlates with your measurements. It is usually best to round up rather than down as it is easier to make a ring smaller than it is to make it bigger.

Material

Wedding rings are traditionally made out of gold, and the higher the karat the better the quality of the gold. 24K is the highest you can possibly get, but 14K and 10K are very good quality gold too and qualify as a precious metal that will make your ring feel very special indeed.

Silver is another precious metal that is very appropriate for a wedding ring and many men prefer silver to gold for look and feel. However, if both these metals are outside your price range there are some very high quality, durable and smart alternatives available.

Tungsten Carbide is an incredibly popular alternative to silver or gold, as it is both luxury and affordable. Titanium is a very strong and masculine choice too.

And there has been a recent trend towards buying silicone wedding rings as they are not only highly affordable but also lightweight, comfortable, durable, breathable and cool. 

Design

The design of your ring will be the deciding factor and will be largely down to your personal taste.

If you are buying for someone else, consider whether they like a bit of bling and would like a ring embellished with gemstones or diamonds, or whether they would prefer something clean and bold.

If you like to stack your rings and wear many other rings on a regular basis then you might prefer something slimline with a width of around 4-6mm. If you would prefer a ring that stands alone and will make an impact then a wider ring of 6-8mm might be better.

What is more, if you plan to wear your ring everyday, at work, in the shower and in bed, then gem stones might not be the most practical choice and something more understated will work better.
