Wedding bands are an important jewelry purchase. Here’s some hints on how to choose wisely for rings that will be a part of your life for years to come. Visit us in store and we'll walk you through crafting the perfect ring!
Choose between a traditional or comfort fit wedding band
A traditional ring has a flat edge against the finger while a comfort fit has a rounded edged meeting the finger. A comfort fit slides on easier and is suggested for highly active lifestyles or for certain careers.
Choose a millimeter width for the wedding band
For women, choose a band that is comfortable when worn with an an engagement ring. Wider rings may not be as comfortable when worn together. For many men, a wedding band will be their most significant piece of jewelry so a larger mm size is often preferred. For couples, the widths of each ring do not have to match!
Choose a top profile of the wedding band
There are many options ranging from a flat top, a subtle curve to a high profile which is domed in appearance.
Choose a metal and color
Platinum, the most precious white metal, is durable enough to last more than one lifetime. Palladium, a white metal, is 40% lower in weight or density than it’s pricier cousin, platinum. Karat gold choices include 18 karat, 14 karat and 10 karat in yellow and white gold. Some 14 karat bands are available in rose gold.
The timeless classic is a polished band, followed in popularity by a milgrain edge or hammered finish. Swirl, wired and satin finishes are also available. Benchmark rings have a lifetime finish guarantee.
