There is so much to do while arranging the wedding it’s easy to forget about the wedding band, until the very last moment! You don’t have to worry though because we have the perfect guide for you, which will remind you about everything you need to know before purchasing the wedding band for your beloved would-be husband.
Width of the Finger
If you want to make sure that the ring fits your fiancé’s ring finger and comfortably so, the only way is to measure the width of his ring finger with a piece of string or a measuring tape. Take the measurements as soon as you can and save it in your phone so that it’s available whenever you need it to be.
The metal is the most important aspect of the groom’s band because they don’t usually have stones set on them. You can buy a wedding band with a few precious gems on it as well, but you will have to get that customized, which we will get to later on.
Platinum – It is twice as expensive as gold or maybe even more than that and if you are looking for the most premium metal for that band, this would be it. In fact, the falling price of platinum may actually help you get it at a comparatively cheaper rate!
Gold (Yellow, White, and Rose) – Yellow gold is the classic choice, while white gold is a more modern look that men are going for these days. Rose gold may or may not work, depending on how your man feels about wearing a pinkish ring!
Palladium – The cheapest metal on the list is palladium, and it looks exactly like platinum, for the most part. The choice is completely yours, although white gold for just a bit more money is probably a better option.
Width of the Band
Now, it can get a little tricky because you need to factor in the build of your man and the nature of his fingers. The general rule is that if he is stocky or stout, the band will need to be appropriately wide and if he is tall and slender, the ring should reflect it. However, it’s not as easy to put people under predefined categories because a man can be short and athletic, with veiny, long fingers!
This is why you should always customize your ring at Ethan Lord Jewelry, which doesn’t just let you choose the metal, design, and size, but you can actually contact them to get your fiancé’s wedding band customized in any way that you want.
If he is a thoughtful fiancé, rest assured that he will get you a beautiful ring too because the attendants will help him do so!
Not that any of it really matters because you two can share everything, including the purchase of wedding rings, but just in case you decide to take the traditional route, now you know how to get that perfect groom’s band.
