Selecting the Right Wedding Band

Selecting the Right Wedding Band
So you have decided to tie the knot! Congratulations on your decision, you won't regret it. Now that you have made the decision the hard part is over, now it's on to the fun stuff, like planning the wedding and getting ready for the big day. There is so much to do, but lets discuss one of more fun parts of getting ready for your wedding day; selecting the right wedding ring.
We always hear about the difficulty of selecting the perfect wedding ring for the bride, but we don't often hear about the shopping for a men's ring. So what is it exactly that a man looks for in a wedding band? I believe there are some key ingredients to selecting the perfect men's band, such as color, style, and quality.
There are so many different colors that you can choose from when selecting the right wedding band for your man.

Gold has always been a popular color, but recent trends have driven many people toward an upcoming silver ring. When I say silver, I don't actually mean silver, but rather white gold, titanium, or the one of the newest trends; tungsten rings. When selecting the color, you may want to consider the color you have selected for your own wedding band. Many couples enjoy having a matching color and make.
Once the color has been selected, consider the style of ring that you would like him to wear. Jewelry makers have done a very good job at creating a variety of styles which set the ring apart from others, such as beveled styles, inlayed rings, facet, or domed looks. Each style is unique and can provide a hint of personality. This is actually a helpful idea to use when selecting the ring style, keep in mind the personality of the individual you are shopping for, and the right ring won't be so hard to find.
The style and color of the ring though important are not nearly as important as the quality of the ring you are going to buy. Keep in mind that guys are hard on things, and the ring will be subject to wear and tear. Doesn't matter if he works in an office or if construction is the profession, the ring will end up getting bumped which can scratch the surface of the ring and cause the ring to lose its polish. There are rings that are designed to overcome scratches such as tungsten rings, which won't lose their polish, or scratch, but it depends upon what you feel is best for your wedding band.
