Guide to Choosing a Men’s Wedding Ring

Choosing a men’s wedding band is usually an afterthought. Traditionally, men’s wedding rings are a simple band, in either yellow or white gold. However, we believe that choosing a men’s wedding ring should also be a luxurious and wonderful experience for couples. Your wedding ring should last a lifetime.

We have developed this comprehensive guide to choosing a men’s wedding band to help you make the best choice for you.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Men’s Wedding Ring

1. How often will you wear your ring? If you’ll be wearing your ring everyday, then be sure to choose a material that can withstand the wear and tear of daily activities. If you prefer to wear it only on special occasions, then perhaps a certain style/width/material would be a better match.

2. Do you have any allergies to certain materials? Some people are allergic to nickel, which can be found is white or yellow gold.

3. Do you want to match with your partner’s wedding ring? Choosing both rings at the same time or making sure you choose the same style/material/width can guarantee the perfect match!

4. What’s your budget? Some materials (and even widths!) can be more expensive than others.


Types of Men’s Wedding Bands

Men’s Classic Wedding Band

Just as the name suggests, this is the traditional, curved men’s wedding ring. It is unadorned and simple.

Carved Wedding Band

Carved wedding rings make the classic wedding band a bit modern. The edges of carved rings are etched.

Men’s Diamond Wedding Band

Who said diamonds are only a girl’s best friend? Men’s diamond wedding rings are very popular. The diamonds are placed around the curve of the wedding band. You can choose a row of diamonds, one single diamond, or a diamond design of your choosing (perhaps one that matches your partner’s ring!).

Modern Wedding Band

Men’s modern wedding bands come in different materials, like tungsten, stainless steel, platinum, and palladium. These materials are becoming more and more popular. An important factor to consider when choosing modern wedding bands is that some of these materials are hard to destroy, which can be great! But this also means that they are impossible to resize if needed in the future.

Types of Men’s Wedding Ring Materials

Gold men’s wedding rings

When choosing a gold men’s wedding band, you have the choice between white, yellow, or rose gold. This choice can depend on your personal style and also the material of your partner’s wedding ring (especially if you want to match!). Gold wedding rings can be resized in the future, if needed.


Definitely the least expensive option, these rings are great as secondary choices for swapping out your wedding ring when engaging in rigorous activity (like going to the gym, hiking, swimming, etc).


Platinum wedding rings are white/silver, hypoallergenic, and also the most expensive. Because platinum is a rare element, a 100% platinum ring comes with a loftier price tag.


Quality material

How to choose the right material for a wedding ring?

While all materials provide an elegant look, it is important to understand the factors that go into making the right choice for your men’s wedding band.

Things to consider when choosing the type of material for your wedding ring:

Style: Perhaps you prefer a ring that is wider than the classic wedding band. Or perhaps you prefer a classic wedding ring with a thinner band. Whatever the case, consider your day-to-day style and what suits your preferences.

Budget: Consider the cost of the different materials, the width preferred, and the decorative elements (like diamonds, etching, etc) that you would prefer for your wedding ring. These factors can determine the total price for your men’s wedding ring.

Ring size: Depending on your ring size, you may find some ring materials to be less comfortable than others. Or perhaps you want to be able to resize your men’s wedding ring in the future. Keep this in mind when choosing the material, as some metals cannot be resized.

Allergies: If you have nickel or silicone allergies, some materials may not be suitable for you.

Matching wedding rings: Do you or your partner want to have matching wedding bands? Choosing the same or similar materials can make that a reality.

How to size the wedding ring

Choosing the right men’s wedding ring size is an important component of your shopping experience.

Did you know that the wider the ring, the tighter the fit?

Here are a few things to consider when sizing your men’s wedding ring:

Ring width: Typically, the wider the wedding ring, the tighter the fit. The ring will fit more tightly when choosing a wider ring. 6mm is the most common width, but here at Luxury Diamonds, we can customize your wedding band so it can be rom 2mm to 9mm

Temperature: Our skin and body contracts in the cold, and tends to “widen” or swell in the heat. Consider this factor when sizing your ring and be sure to be at a neutral body temperature to ensure correct sizing.

Body changes: Remember that your wedding ring is a lifetime commitment. If you anticipate any body changes in the future, make room for that when making a decision (especially when choosing ring material!).
