At Aurum Jewellers, we specialise in men’s wedding rings and have provided our products in Sussex and across the UK. When it comes to male wedding rings, there isn’t too much difference in comparison with women’s.
When it comes to bespoke jewellery, our experience jewellers believe that everyone, regardless of gender, should have the wedding ring that’s perfect for them. Whatever wedding ring you choose or suits you, you’ll be wearing it for a long time, so it’s important that it is your taste and suits your lifestyle.
Traditionally, men’s wedding rings tend to be wider than a women’s ring, on average, men usually have larger fingers than women, so that’s where logic comes from. At Sussex based Aurum Jewellers, we design and make a selection of custom wedding rings for our customers across the UK and the rest of the world. Our experience has shown that when selecting a new wedding ring, men still tend to opt for wider wedding rings than women’s choices. But, our bespoke wedding ring design services means that the possibilities are endless and we’ll create the perfect wedding ring to suit you, whether you want to buck the trend with something different, or you’d like someone more traditional. At Aurum Jewellers if it’s an usual male wedding ring you’re looking for, we can help you create something special with our UK and worldwide services.
For a lot of men, their wedding ring could be the first ring they ever own. If this is the case then you may have not even given your wedding ring a thought. So you’re probably unsure of what you’re looking for, what your prefer or what suits you. Our experience has shown us that many men feel that a wedding ring looks strange on their hand, if you have never seen a ring on your hand before it is going to look alien at first.
It’s important that this doesn’t put you off! Keep looking at different styles of rings until you see something you like. Some of our clients found it helpful to look at their friends and family members wedding rings to help them decide on a style for them. You should eventually be able to choose the types of metal and the widths of band that suit your requirements. This will give you a starting point for thinking about your own ring.
Whilst this is a generalisation, men’s wedding rings and jewellery does tend to be harder in comparison with women’s jewellery, this is usually down to the styles and the type of materials which appeal to men. When choosing your bespoke male wedding ring, it’s important to take your lifestyle into account, should you carry out a manual job then you’ll need to bear this in mind when choosing your ring. Rings can be worn to work, but sometimes wearing a ring presents a danger of some sort in the work environment. If this is the case you might decide only to wear your ring at weekends, or when you go out. In some occupations it is safe to wear a ring to work, but you are likely to subject it to heavy wear. You should take this into consideration. Even if you work in an office you might undertake activities in your spare time that could damage a wedding ring.
Wedding rings are made in various materials, they each have different properties that will either make them more or less suitable for your lifestyle. Traditionally wedding rings are made from precious metals, this includes Gold or Platinum as Silver is considered too soft for wedding rings. More recently, palladium, another precious metal has become very popular, especially for men’s wedding rings.
At Aurum Jewellers we can provide a selection of men’s wedding rings…
Platinum is one of the rarest of the precious metals and is, therefore, the most expensive. Being naturally white, unlike white gold, platinum requires no plating. It is a very tough and hard-wearing metal, making it very suitable for men’s wedding rings
Palladium is one of the ‘platinum group’ metals. It shares many properties of platinum itself but is less dense, so lighter in weight. cheaper alternative. It comes two purity grades: 950/1000 known as 950 Palladium and 500/1000, 500 Palladium. Palladium is less tough than platinum, but much tougher than white gold. It is naturally white in colour like platinum, so doesn’t need plating.
Gold comes in four different purities and three different shades. 18ct yellow gold is the most popular for wedding rings as it combines a good depth of colour with durability. 18ct red gold contains more copper giving it a reddish tinge. 18ct white gold has an off-white or greyish colour, and is usually rhodium-plated to make it appear whiter. This wears off quite quickly, especially on men’s wedding rings. Some men like the darker colour of un-plated white gold, so this overcomes the problem of plating wearing off.
Titanium is not a precious metal, but has become a popular option for men’s wedding rings. It is dark grey and very tough, making it suitable for someone with a manual job. It is also very lightweight. A disadvantage is that it is not usually possible to re-size if your finger-size changes.
