Top tips on selecting wedding bands for men:

1-  What is preferred choice of metal?
The most popular metal is gold with option in yellow and white finishes. All gold is yellow in its original form. White gold is plated in rhodium, which makes it silver in tone. The next best option is platinum, which is heavier than gold and much more durable. It is regarded as the most sophisticated men’s jewelry.

2-  What is his ring size?
This is one of the most important aspects to avoid resizing which could be an added cost. Also, not all designs are easy to resize, especially if they are diamond encrusted. It is best to get the correct ring size from a professional jeweler and then place the order. You can refer to the size guide for additional information.

3- Match the ring to his lifestyle
What is his profession, how active is he and what his hobbies are- all things you need to consider before making the selection. A ring that a financial advisor would wear would be different from a golfer or a construction worker. Ring durability and weight, thus becomes a important factor in this selection. Gold and platinum are top metals in terms of durability as opposed to silver which would work if the groom plans to change the ring after a couple of years. Besides the strength, another factor men consider, is the fit of the band that would make it a everyday wear ring. 

4- What is the groom’s personality?
Is he traditional, simplistic or a modern man with richer tastes? You know your man best and so make the judgment on what will highlight his characteristics.

5- The Cost Factor
Budget is of course the crucial deciding factor in making the decision of buying a wedding band. Do you want something that is affordable or something that is durable or rather just have enough room to go lavish? Most couples might start out with a simple gold band and then upgrade to a diamond wedding ring, few years down the road.

6- A ring to pair with the bride
Most couples also like to look at how their rings look together and if they compliment each other. A popular choice is to engrave a message of love on the wedding bands, which Raj Jewels offers to its customers at no extra cost.
