Congratulations, you’re about to marry the love of your life! But before you say “I do,” you need to select the piece of jewelry that symbolizes your love and commitment to your partner, your wedding band. With a variety of different style options available to you, here are some important things to keep in mind when looking for the perfect wedding band.

  • Metal Type: The most popular metals for men’s wedding bands are platinum, gold (white, yellow, or rose), and stainless steel. For more information on these metals, click here. Titanium and tungsten are two other options to consider if you’d prefer another type of contemporary metal. More information on these contemporary metals can be found here. And you don’t have to settle on just one metal. You can mix and match by having one portion of the ring feature one metal and the other portion another, as you can see in this tungsten and rose gold ring.

  • Gemstones: After you’ve decided on your preferred metal, next you should determine whether or not you’d like gemstones set in your wedding band. The most common type of gemstone found in men’s wedding bands is diamonds, but there are other options to consider as well, especially if you’re interested in colored gemstones, like sapphires or rubies. If you do want gemstones incorporated in your band, you should consider what gemstone shape you’d prefer and how many gems you’d like. Your band can feature just one gemstone or you can incorporate numerous gems. And as for shape… round, square, oval, and rectangular shaped gemstones are some of the most popular options for wedding bands.
