Many customers specifically request men's wedding bands as opposed to women's, while the subdivision of wedding bands into men's and women's is quite ambiguous and subtle. The wedding band's label does not say whether it is a men's wedding band or a women's wedding band, and an assistant is hardly responsible to answer this question to you. Hence, you should know several rules of today's fashion, which will help you to clear up this matter on your own and to purchase definitely wedding band men, if you need it so much.
First, there is a regional difference and various regions follow diverse fashions in wearing wedding bands and therefore have different style preferences. In some regions, a wide wedding band is considered a men's wedding band, while a narrow is a women's one. However, you should select a wedding band proportionally to your complexion. Smaller men often buy wedding bands in the range of three to six mm. Larger men prefer wider bands in the six to ten mm. range. Nevertheless, it does not mean that if you are not large, you should buy a small band. Consider also other accessories, which you wear, particularly, their color and weight.
We can also regard a woven band or a band with some coarser finishes and more masculine styles as a men's wedding band. Therefore, a band, featuring floral patterns or a band of a more delicate design is to be a women's band.
What concerns metal, chosen for a men's wedding band design, it is used for women's items as well: white or yellow gold, platinum and titanium. Some men also select a wedding band according to the weight of the metal; titanium is the lightest of all mentioned above.
Diamonds, as the most common insertion into wedding bands, have been a privilege of women for a long time. However, today, diamonds are featured more and more into men's wedding band designs, while the latest tendency of women is to wears wider style wedding bands, as they can make an excellent matching set for both: a husband and a wife.
Probably, white gold bands are the most fashionable today, while titanium bands also find many customers. Platinum bands are for those, who prefer expensiveness and chic. Diamond band styles are for the most contemporary men with a sophisticated taste.
An additional option for those, who prefer wider bands, is hand or machine engraving. The inside of the band can hold up to thirty characters and spaces. The machine engraving is done on the inside of the platinum, titanium or gold band. The hand engraving is possible both: for the outside and inside of the platinum or gold bands, but it is not available on the titanium bands for their highly resistible character.
In general, it is better to select a band according to your own taste and buy the one, which looks at you. Actually, there are no rules for a woman or man, when it comes to selecting a wedding band. The points mentioned above are only things, which men and women most often do. If you are more traditional, follow the traditions, if you are more experimenting, try over the wedding band selection and choose something from entirely new and fashionable collections.
