Hours upon hours of careful planning and decision making go into preparing all of the details for your wedding day. With all of the busyness of wedding preparation, don’t let finding the groom’s ring become an afterthought. Spend some careful time looking for a ring that will be a good fit for the groom for the rest of your lives together. Here are a few tips to consider when searching for men’s wedding bands.

Choose a Ring that Fits the Groom’s Taste

This is especially important if the bride is picking out a surprise ring for the groom. There are many ring bands out there with designs ranging from the most simple metal to the most intricate diamonds. Choose a ring that matches the groom’s taste and personality. He will be wearing this ring for a long time, so make sure it is something that he will feel confident wearing. If the vintage classic look is something that would be a good style fit, you should look into EraGem. EraGem has a great selection of vintage men’s rings that are both unique and stylish.

Consider the Groom’s Lifestyle

If the groom works in a hands on job or is constantly starting projects, you’ll want to buy a ring that is durable. Silver is less expensive than most metals, but it is also fairly flimsy. If you are going with a gold band, make sure it is 14K or less. Tungsten and Titanium are becoming more popular and are very durable rings. Silicon rings are not only extremely affordable, but they are comfortable to wear, are durable, and are safer for working professionals.

Pick Something Comfortable

When looking at ring designs, keep comfort in mind. Don’t choose a thick ring with jutting jewels if it will become uncomfortable to wear in the future. Even if the groom knows his ring size, it might be a good idea to get his finger professionally sized to make sure you have the perfect fit. Having a ring that is too big or too small will become annoying really fast.

Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute

With so many details being planned for the wedding day, it can be easy to forget this important element. Make sure to pick out and order the groom’s band several months before the wedding. You will want to have enough time to decide if it is really the ring you want to go with and to get any resizing done beforehand. It is especially important to be on top of things if you want to get your rings engraved before the wedding.
