While some men love jewelry and everything that comes with it, some grooms-to-be are easily overwhelmed with the limitless options when finding or creating a wedding band that reflects their style and needs.
Your wedding band will most likely be your most-worn piece of jewelry, and it symbolizes the biggest commitment you will ever make, so we encourage you to take the time to find a ring you will love to wear.
Here are five questions to consider before picking out your wedding band.
Think about the finish.
Some wedding bands are naturally polished, providing a high-shine finish. Others use brushed metal, which dulls the natural shine. Think about your personal style, and what is best suited to it.
Traditional or modern?
It’s your wedding ring, so the style is entirely up to you. If you want to keep it traditional, choose a simple gold band. If you prefer to choose something a little more unusual, there are plenty of distinctive wedding rings available.
To match, or not to match?
Some couples like to have matching rings, to symbolize their union in marriage. Others like to choose rings that celebrate their unique personality. Discuss your options with your bride before choosing a ring, to ensure that you’re both in agreement, whatever the decision.
Know your size.
While it’s helpful to know your ring size before heading out to find your perfect wedding band, we are happy to measure your finger for you.
Think about practicality.
You’ll be wearing this ring every day, so you’ll want to make sure that it can withstand the rigors of your lifestyle. If you work a lot with your hands, you might want to consider choosing a material that is scratch-resistant.

“I wanted custom work done for my fiance’s engagement ring but I assumed it would be too expensive. Malcolm quickly dispelled that perception and built me a design that both hit the carat weight I was looking for and fell within my budget.
My lady was THRILLED with how it came out. Malcolm and Joseph design with precision, care, passion and integrity.
I just ordered a custom wedding band, too, and it will be incredible, I know it. Thanks, Villarreal!” — Mitch H. on Yelp
