4 Steps toward Finding the Perfect Groom’s Band:
1. Choose a Flexible Jeweler
When shopping for a ring, the last thing you want is a jeweler who thinks he knows best regarding what you want and what you can afford. Sometimes, they have been in the business for so long, they have a compartment in their minds for every customer. But you are a unique guy. You’ve been places, done things. And, even though you might not know it, you probably have an innate sense for what kind of ring would look great on you. It’s a sure thing you’ll know it when you see it.
It may surprise you to know that the best place to shop for men’s wedding bands is in the comfort of your own home. At Jordan Jack, we value flexibility so much that we offer the no-fuss Home Trial Box for you to examine five of your top ring choices at your leisure at home. Put them on, live with them for three days, then make your selection. This unique service is free and can help you determine the size and feel that’s right for you. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
2. Know the Pros and Cons of Metals Used in Men’s Rings
Choosing a man’s ring begins with understanding the different kinds of metals, including their strengths and weaknesses. A good starting place is examining your own lifestyle, hobbies and career and finding a metal that meets those needs. The kind of life you lead may be a prominent factor in determining which metal to choose for your ring.
If you are heavily into sports or a trade that uses your hands, durability and scratch-resistance will be important to you. Cobalt, titanium and tantalum are the strongest metals. The main consideration with this type of metal is they are extremely difficult to cut off in an emergency.
If you work with chemicals, corrosion-resistance will be essential. Stainless steel, titanium and cobalt are excellent choices for resistance to rust and corrosion.
If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies, you will want a hypoallergenic ring that will be less likely to cause a contact rash, especially since wedding rings are worn constantly. Nickel is the most common allergen among metals, but cobalt and copper are also widespread culprits. While gold rings can cause irritation in some people, it is actually caused by an alloy, such as copper, being mixed with the gold to produce a lower-quality ring. Good hypoallergenic choices might include stainless steel, titanium, silver and tantalum. Cobalt is also a good choice for sensitive skin.
3. Choose the Right Style
Now that you’ve chosen a great jeweler and you have an idea of what metals are your top choices, it’s time to have some fun. Browse through our online showcase to start gathering ideas of what kind of ring you would like, but don’t make any fast decisions yet. You can start placing rings into your virtual box--up to 5 rings--to then order in a convenient Home Trial Box.
You can search and sort by amount of diamonds, size and metal type. You can even sort by price. How much men’s wedding bands cost usually depends upon personal preference and style choices. Many of the rings start at a very affordable $99 and go up from there as you add diamonds or choose precious metals.
Play around with different combinations to see what jumps out at you. You may have an ideal image in mind of what a man’s wedding band should look like. If so, you should be able to find it quickly using our sorting tools.
The color of the ring will be one of the most important decisions you will make. Some men would only consider the traditional gold to be the color they want, others are intrigued by the newer choices of black, blue and silver combinations. A picture of what you prefer will grow in your mind as you browse through our carefully chosen selection.
You may want to consider the width of men’s wedding bands as you browse. Some men like the larger, heavier look that comes with a thick band wedding ring. Others prefer a slim, lightweight men’s wedding band that won’t get in the way and will be easy to get used to wearing.
