Everybody believes that their wedding is going to be some sort of fairy tale romantic event until they get down to the nuts and bolts about planning it. There are far more practical considerations to be made in order to make sure that not only the big day goes off magically, but also the marriage itself is one that is as wonderful as possible. This is true even for what most people think of as the most romantic aspect of the wedding day. The list of what to consider when buying wedding rings may be short, but it is important.

The first consideration needs to be about the marriage and not the wedding. In other words, the diamond wedding rings need to be wedding rings that both people can live with. They are going to be looking at them every day for the rest of their lives. Fads come and go, and it can make for a long life if two or three years after the wedding day the rings look sadly out of date.

Another aspect of why style is important is because there should be a consistency between the engagement ring and the bride’s wedding band as well as between hers and her husband’s wedding ring. One way couples ensure that this happens is by buying their diamond wedding rings as a set with the engagement ring. At the very least – and especially if a significant time has elapsed between the proposal and when the wedding happens – it is best to return to the original jewelry store with the engagement ring so that prospective wedding bands can be matched up.

A final consideration should be given to the possibility of waiting and celebrating the first year of marriage by exchanging diamond anniversary rings. Not only does this help to spread out the expenses over a longer period of time, freeing up additional funds for the wedding itself, it also creates the impression of a magical yearlong celebration of the wedding.

People always want to know what to consider when buying wedding rings. The most important consideration should be to not think of them as wedding bands or diamond wedding rings, but rather as diamond marriage rings. Be sure to select rings not just for that first day, but for all the days of the future.

What makes men’s wedding rings different than those of women? Men tend to be lazy on the side of dressing up and flaunting flashy items of jewelry on a regular basis. Therefore, one must need a different guide for men’ wedding rings, right?
We think so and so do the guys at Brilliant Earth who’ve come up with this ‘complete guide’ to men’s wedding rings. Read on.

A guy usually gives a ton of thought to selecting an engagement ring for his fiancé, but when it’s time to choose his own wedding band he may realize that he’s clueless about the options.

If that describes you, don’t let your ring be an afterthought! Since you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life, and it may even be the only piece of jewelry you wear, you should love your wedding band every bit as much as your fiancé loves her carefully selected rings. When choosing a men’s wedding band, there are six things to consider: Width, metal choice, fit, finish, detailing and engraving.

How wide do you want your ring to be? Try on rings in many different widths to decide what you like best. Wider rings tend to be more expensive (since they require a larger quantity of precious metal), but you can balance size and price by choosing a metal that’s within your budget. For example, palladium looks very similar to platinum and white gold, but costs less.

METAL CHOICE

The metals traditionally used for men’s wedding rings are platinum, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and palladium. Here are the benefits of each:

 

Platinum

Platinum is extremely durable and is among the rarest elements in the earth’s crust.  It is also hypoallergenic and almost never causes skin reactions.

 

White Gold

White gold is gold plated in rhodium, a member of the platinum family, which gives it a brilliant white color similar to platinum’s but at a lower price point (note: the rhodium plating on white gold jewelry may need to be replaced after a decade or so).

 

Yellow Gold

Yellow gold gives off a subtle, warm glow and is a classic option.

 

Palladium

Palladium is a member of the platinum family of metals and has a very similar look, but generally costs less than platinum and white gold.

 

Rose Gold

Rose gold is a beautiful, less common choice and creates a unique vintage effect.  It’s perfect for a groom who wants a more distinctive look.

Can’t decide?  Consider a mixed metal wedding band. No matter which metal you choose, we recommend recycled precious metal as an eco-friendly choice.

FIT

The edges of a wedding band can be curved or flat, forming right angles to the sides of the ring. Our popular Comfort Fit band has gently rounded edges, which can make it a good choice for men who are concerned about how it will feel to wear a ring every day. Try on a number of different rings to get a sense of which fit feels right to you.

FINISH

Finish describes the texture of a ring’s metal. These are the terms to know:

High Polish

High Polish is the most traditional choice and describes metal with a reflective finish.

Matte

Matte is a less reflective finish with an understated, modern feel.

Combination

Combination wedding bands combine both matte and high polish textures.

Hammered

Hammered rings look as if a tiny hammer has pounded the metal to create a textured effect. They are popular with men who want a unique, eye-catching look.

DETAILING

Not so long ago there were very few options in men’s wedding bands beyond choice of metal, but these days you can have a very unique men’s wedding ring. Add style to your ring with diamond or sapphire accents, like a subtle vertical stripe of sparkling gems an antique scroll or a Celtic knot design.

ENGRAVING

Whether you choose a ring that’s understated and classic or more unique and eye-catching, there are almost endless ways you can personalize the band with engraving. The date of your wedding, your fiancé’s name or initials, a word, phrase or song lyric that’s central to your love story—engraving any of these on your ring will lend it extra meaning. You could even have your fiancé’s fingerprint engraved into the metal—what could be more romantic than choosing to keep a reminder of your fiancé close to you every day?  You can have either the inside or the outside of your ring engraved, depending on whether you want to keep the engraving private or show it off to the world.

CUSTOM DESIGNS

To wear a ring that truly reflects your one-of-a-kind personality, consider having your wedding band custom designed. Our jewelry design experts will help you bring your vision to life, and can suggest styles and effects that will express your unique style, such as nature-inspired motifs, antique designs, or custom patterns or symbols that honor your heritage or history.

Ronnie Mervis from Mervis Diamond Importers thinks that men’s wedding rings is an entirely different affair from women’s. He argues that women are used to wearing rings since a young age while most of the men wear their first ring on their wedding days and that’s bound to get uncomfortable. That is why wedding bands for men need to be designed in a special way so they don’t fall off during heavy activity or, say, while playing golf. Men’s wedding rings also tend to be a tad more understated than their female counterparts. Watch him give sound advice in the video below.

Buying men’s wedding rings or any men’s jewelry is not easy but it doesn’t have to be complicated. There are certain guidelines that, when followed, make it easier to reach a satisfactory conclusion. Hopefully, this article will help you make a more informed decision. Buy premium, contemporary men’s wedding rings and other jewelry items at Steels Jewelry

Buying jewelry is an elaborate art that takes years and sometimes decades to master. That doesn’t mean you have to be a savant to go shopping for jewelry. However, even though most jewelers are honest business people, you should always be aware of the various ways people will try to trick you out of your money. There are some simple precautions you can take to avoid being duped.

Look it up

Do an online search to find price and description for every item of jewelry you hope to purchase. Unless your selected items are obscure, you will be able to find them with a single online search on websites of various (sometimes competing) online jewelry retailers.

Have it appraised

GIA appraisals are good at not only evaluating the worth of jewelry items but also at complete descriptions of any discernible trait or flaw. A good appraiser will be able to tell you right away whether your jewelry is real or an imitation. When buying new or old jewelry, ask the seller for previous appraisals and all documents supporting its authenticity.

Verify documents

A defaulting seller might provide you with authenticity or appraisal documents for another item of jewelry! Pay close attention to the details of the documents, and if the size or weight of the item seems off by a considerable margin, don’t buy. Never feel shy to ask for measurement gauges, weighing scales or loupes to verify the details of the stones yourself.

Compare again

Compare with other similar items of jewelry. Gold should look and feel like gold. If it doesn’t, it’s probably fake gold (or sterling silver coated with gold). Remember different metals have different weights. So if the jeweler has used sterling silver, you should be able to tell once you weight it along with a full gold piece of the same measurements. Gold is usually heavier than both silver and sterling silver.

Keep comparing

Ask to see the item in person as well as in a catalog. Compare the look of the two and see if there are any discrepancies. Jewelers often run out of the most popular pieces and replace them with similar items. Although there is nothing wrong with doing that, it might inadvertently fool people into buying the wrong pieces.

Shop with Steels Jewelry and be assured of genuineness and authenticity in every item you purchase.
