Man Wedding Ring
Despite the fact that some men are no longer wearing a wedding ring shortly after their marriage, yet on the day of the wedding they should not neglect this long-standing tradition. Men are not very keen on jewelry of any kind, so their quest for the perfect wedding ring should be properly considered. A man wedding ring should express certain traits of his personality, his lifestyle and most importantly, should be a natural discrete decoration.

A wedding ring should fit your lifestyle
When choosing the right wedding ring you should first think at what kind of lifestyle you lead. Everyone has its own characteristics. A particular design of the ring can be very appealing to one man, while another can consider it as unsuitable. The design of the ring can be a good fit to the image of a person's life. You should consider how the ring will affect your lifestyle. Consider the following issues and aspects that will play a major role in choosing a man wedding ring.
Can he wear the wedding ring at work? Are there any special requirements at work? You are a mechanic, tradesman or working on machinery, engaged in activities that could have a negative effect on the ring? Do you need a ring that would be easy to cut, to remove from your finger in an emergency? If your answer is ‘YES’, then perhaps the best solution is not wearing a ring during work hours.
Are you going to wear a wedding ring every day? Most men prefer to try not to wear a wedding ring at all. Yet there are jobs in which it is physically impossible to wear a wedding ring, as there are men who do not want to wear a wedding ring every day. The men who wear wedding bands on weekends and special occasions often choose an unusual design of the ring, because they want to fully enjoy it.
Some men prefer to wear their wedding rings on a chain around their necks when they cannot wear them on fingers. If you plan to wear your wedding ring on a chain, make sure that the ring is suitable for this purpose (for example, broad plaited and massive rings are not very comfortable). Do you play sports on a regular basis? If you are involved in do rock climbing, soccer, basketball, surfing, I would advise not to wear a wedding ring.
A wedding ring should reflect your personality
The wedding ring is not only a symbol of your love, but also a fashion accessory that will be with you for a long time. So, you need to choose a ring that will reflect your personality. You will appreciate even more your ring if put into it a little bit of effort.
You are a simple guy with no special claims? Then the classic gold ring is what you need. There is a huge variety of simple gold rings. They differ in shapes and widths.
Do you want something different? Most men who do not want to wear a simple gold wedding ring, but at the same time they do not want to have something too vulgar. Perhaps the ring with a rotating middle is just right for you. How about a ring with ribbed edges, a ring with an inset of white gold, two-tone gold ring or a braided pattern?
You are an engineer or a person with a technical specialty, developing the latest technology? The best choice here would be a ring made of titanium – high tech metal used in the latest technological developments.
You are brave and adventurous? Then you may like something unusual and innovative. Perhaps a custom made ring with unusual elements, with precious stones will do just fine for you. How about an unusual shaped ring of, such as a mosaic composite ring?
Does your cultural or ethnic tradition require wearing certain types of rings? For example, if you have Irish roots, then you may like Celtic rings. If you have any Italian blood in the family, then you can give preference to a wedding ring with diamonds.
How to choose a convenient ring?
Many men believe that a wedding ring is just an uncomfortable thing on their fingers. This misconception comes from the fact that before the wedding, most men do not wear any rings. However, a man wedding ring will be convenient, if you pick it correctly. Pay attention to two factors: the shape and the width of the ring.
First of all, give preference to the design, to rings with softly rounded edges and do not stop on the rings which have sharp angular edges. This does not mean that the flat, wide rings cannot be comfortable. The wide flat ring is well-executed if the inner edges are rounded. Then look inside the ring, the bending of edges and lines. The inner side should have smooth curving lines and the presence of a soft line will give you the feeling that the ring is more comfortable on your finger.
When it comes to choosing the width of the ring, it is necessary to pay attention to selection factors such as the size and length of your fingers and, of course, your personal preferences. Very often, men with larger hands and long fingers are choosing a ring with an average width or slightly wider. Men with small hands and short fingers must choose, as a rule, 5 mm width or even slightly narrower. If you want to buy a ring with width of more than 7 mm, keep in mind that may not be very convenient.
Which metal is best suited for the manufacture of men's wedding rings?
Gold is the most popular material for the manufacture and purchase of men's wedding rings. When choosing gold men's wedding ring, remember two things: the quality, expressed in the sample, and the desired color or a combination of colors.
Titanium is a naturally occurring metal which has a grayish-white color. It is very strong, three times harder than steel and much stronger than gold, silver and platinum. However, it is quite light in weight. It is very durable, more resistant to various types of damage (scratches, dents) than gold, silver or platinum, is light in weight, and most importantly, has a very exotic shade. Also a man could choose platinum or silver.
