Choosing the Perfect Men’s Wedding Band

choosing men’s wedding band

When we talk generally about weddings and engagement rings, we tend to think first about the woman in the equation – and with very good reason. Women are traditionally the primary recipient of engagement rings, items that come with an enormous amount of planning and attention in many cases.

At AAA Jewelers, though, we never forget about the other side of this important equation. We offer a huge range of wedding rings and bands for couples, all of which come with our superior craftsmanship. You may not have thought much about a men’s wedding band, for instance, but we absolutely have – here are some important choice elements when it comes to the men’s wedding band.

Size

Sizing for men’s wedding bands is done in the same way as it’s done for women, with bands varying in thickness. It’s recommended that you get your left ring finger sized before ordering.

For those looking for a slim, minimalist ring design, we usually steer you in the direction of rings about 2 to 3 millimeters in width. Some men find these make their hands appear to small or delicate, though, and opt for in the range of 4 to 5 millimeters – this is the most common classic style for men. There are also larger sizes available, ranging up to 8mm in width in some cases, and these are great for larger or bulkier hands that would be minimized or uncomfortable with smaller options. Keep your daily comfort in mind as you move through your options here.

Fit Options

There are a few different fit templates when it comes to male wedding bands:

  • Comfort fit: The most common option today is the comfort fit, which has a rounded look almost like a dome. It’s great because of the way it fits naturally with the curve of your hand, which is what makes it so popular.
  • Square or flat fit: This is a ring style that comes flat on all sides. These rings tend to appear a bit more jointed or geometric.
  • Euro fit: Something of a mix between the above two styles is the Euro fit, which has a square outer appearance but still has a comfortable fit on the inner part of the band.

Design Choices

You’ll also have a few options at your disposal when it comes to band design. Here are some of the most common:

  • Plain: The most popular style, both today and in recent decades, is the plain wedding band. These can be made in any metal type, with a variety of finishing options depending on whether you want something matte or polished. If you choose a softer metal, consider a darker finish hat may help cover daily wear and tear.
  • Design: There are plenty of carved designs available for your band, from polished edges to various patterns on the stone.
  • Gemstone: Other men’s wedding bands feature diamonds or other gemstones integrated into their designs. These are generally the most expensive mal wedding bands, and they require some extra maintenance to ensure stones don’t fall out.
