Mens Wedding Bands ? A Whole World Of Choice
Mens wedding bands are an emerging phenomenon. Whilst women have worn engagement and wedding rings for years, men are just starting to catch up.
Mens wedding bands are the new fashion for the fashion conscious married man. And there is a whole world of choice.
For the male who is in the market for a mens wedding band, the alternatives can be a little daunting. Where do you start to look? What do you get? How do you choose? What will she like? Should you buy it or should she? There are so many choices to make when searching for mens wedding bands.
Lets dispose of the last one first. Who chooses a mans wedding band? Who cares! The only thing to think about is what you both want. There's no right or wrong. Talk about it and see how important it is to you both. Do you feel that he should choose the engagement ring? If so maybe she should choose his mens wedding band. It really doesn't matter at all.
Where do you start to look for great mens wedding bands? That isn't so easy, but here are some general suggestions.
First have a look in your local jewelry store. Just look, don't buy. You need to get a feel for what is available and what appeals to you. The range of mens wedding bands is huge and there are very few stores where you can see even a fraction of what is available. But it's a good place to start.
While you're there get your ring finger sized. That's always useful to know. And spend a little time thinking about the width of the band that you feel would suit your finger. Generally mens wedding bands are wider than womens rings as a man has wider fingers and so his band needs to be a little wider to look right.
Then have a look at different types of materials. There are all sorts of choices for modern men's wedding bands. Don't just look at gold or silver, there's much more choice than that. Modern mens wedding bands can be made from all sorts of materials that you may never even think of. Would you have thought to look at carbon fibre men's wedding bands? How about stainless steel, or platinum, or titanium? Look at everything you can find.
And very few regular stores will offer any sort of choices in these materials. Many won't even offer these materials at all. How many regular stores are there who will show you a carbon fibre mens wedding band? Not many.
Make a decision about the basic style of band you feel would attractive to you both. Many men buy a plain, simple unadorned band. No frills, no design features. The most basic band that it is possible to buy.
However one possible explanation for the popularity of the plain mens wedding band is that many men do not take the time to investigate the range of options available to them.
You should think a little about the man's personality. Is he outgoing, flashy, forward? Or is he more reserved and conservative? The choice of men's band reflects his style and personality, so choose with this in mind.
So, in your local store, look, make some decisions about what basic style of band you would like and what material you should investigate, and don't buy.
Next, jump on the internet. There is a massive range of choices in mens wedding bands on the internet. Almost anything you could set your heart on can be found, and if it can't then it can probably be custom made for you.
And it's usual that the band you finally decide on will be cheaper, often substantially, if you buy it on the internet than if you bought it at your local store. That's just how the internet works. At your local store there probably isn't much competition, maybe only one or two other stores in the immediate area. But on the internet everyone competes with everyone else, regardless of location, so it's a really competitive market. Prices need to be really keen to stay in business.
And of course an internet store can set up it's actual buildings somewhere where it isn't too expensive to own or rent the real estate, so overheads are much lower than for your local store. Lower overheads and high competition means great savings in prices for you. Often up to 50%.
Once you have made some basic decisions on material, width and style, and you have begun your search on the internet you are well on your way to finding the best range of mens wedding bands and well on the way to your perfect band. Check out all the choices offered, it costs nothing to surf.
Spend a little time, because your final choice of mens wedding band will be with you for a long time.
