Looking for something unique? Check out six ways on how to customise men’s wedding rings.
Gone are the days where jewels are focused only for women. Nowadays, men have become equally invested in the type and style of wedding ring they want for themselves, knowing that they will wear it for the rest of their lives. Are you one of them?
If you are looking for a wedding ring that’s uniquely yours, here are a couple of ways on how you can customise it.
There are different types of metals available for men, each with distinct characteristics. From traditional gold to elegant black zirconium, you will surely find something that reflects your style and personality.
Aside from gold, which is of course still one of the most popular, metals like platinum, tungsten, titanium, palladium, and silver are options you can choose from. Know that you can also mix two contrasting metals for a more unconventional look.
Ring Setting and Style
Like women’s rings, there are also different styles and settings available for men’s wedding rings. Choosing a style and a setting is totally a personal choice.
- Do you want it to be a matching ring?
- Do you want to pair it with your engagement ring or your fiancée’s?
- Would you like it plain, simple, and stylish or you prefer to adorn it with gemstones?
Once you have thought about these things, choosing a style setting that would suit you and your preference will be easier.
There are quite a few settings that you can choose from when creating a bespoke or customized wedding ring:
- Bead and Pave
Engraving and Inscriptions
In terms of customisation, engraving is probably the simplest and easiest to do. By adding inscriptions to your wedding ring, you make it more personalised for you and your wife-to-be. Make your symbol of fidelity and everlasting love even more special by inscribing memorable dates, love notes (short enough for the band), words of promise, or nicknames.
Inscriptions and engravings are usually inside the band, but if you like to think outside of the box, an exterior engraving is a creative choice.
Normal wedding rings usually have a smooth and shiny finish, but if you like something extraordinary, exploring metal finishes will make a unique ring.
- Polished Finish – A shiny and reflective finish that is common to pieces of jewellery especially rings.
- Satin Finish – Very much alike with the polished finished minus the sheen.
- Wired Brush – Almost similar to a soft brushed finish but the marks are more noticeable and more prominent.
- Soft Brushed – Texture looks like it was made by a brush.
- Sand Blasted – Is a kind of grainy and coarse finish you can actually feel on your skin.
- Hammered Finish – A non-shiny finish with a textured look as if a hammer was used to hit every dimple on the band
- Combined Finishes – Combination of 2 or more finish that you want.
Another way to make the ring your own is to have it completely bespoke. Choose your own metal, finish, additions, and curve. If you have ideas for your wedding ring that may seem unusual, why not have a go at it. There is no need to stick to old tradition and norms, you are the one who will be wearing the ring years from now so don’t be afraid to try.
