For Your Man – What’s His Metal?

June 3rd, 2014

New Metals, New Styles and New Designs of Wedding Bands:

Wearing a nice looking wedding band is important, of course, but finding a comfortable ring is what really matters. Simply put, men don’t want to be wincing every time they shake hands because their ring cuts into their fingers. Your wedding band will be with you every day and night for the rest of your life, find the one most comfortable for you.

New metals have different qualities, and for men or women who are allergic to gold, silver or other metals, there are beautifully crafted, very strong, ceramic wedding bands. Every new groom thinks his job is finished when his girl let’s him put that diamond on her finger. But, you will learn, you all learn.

Men, if you work with your hands and you get them dirty every day, it would be good to consider harder metals. Soft metals like gold and silver scratch easily and will crush your finger if you experienced a hard blow to the hand. Titanium, Tungsten and even the non-allergic ceramic wedding bands will take a strong blow.  Under extreme pressure Tungsten will break or shatter rather than bend, they won’t cut off blood supply to your finger. You can read more about modern wedding band metals strength and weight on this  “Wedding Band Comparison Guide for Your Hubby.”

Titanium is very scratch resistant and tungsten is more than twice as scratch proof as gold, platinum and silver. But of course softer metals scratch more easily where heavier metals keep their brilliant shine. You have to consider if you like the feel of a heavy ring on your finger. Some men have been known to take their rings off while sound asleep, not with the intention of angering their wives, but because they’re too tight or heavy.

Wide-bands fit more tightly on the finger than thin bands. Men with long, slim fingers prefer narrow bands, from 4mm – 6mm in thickness. The heavier, thicker bands of 7-8mm look really perfect on men with larger, shorter fingers.

Go to a jeweler and try on different styled rings, learn how you feel wearing different metals. Jot down your ring size, if you want to cruise the internet, you’ll have everything you need to know, for ordering online.

Choosing Wedding And Engagement Rings

October 20th, 2013

As an Accessories Expert, I’m all about fabulous jewels and as a Maid of Honor for my sister who will be married next spring in Tokyo, I’m in the thick of wedding planning. When it comes to weddings, it’s all about being personal and nothing is more personal than the engagement ring. Not only is it personal but also there are literally no rules when it comes to what this ring should like. For the traditional girl, it’s all about diamonds and having that chic uptown look that we have come to know with a number of diamond campaigns, photo shoots and more. There is something very sweet about going this route.

Lately there has been a resurgence of receiving engagement rings that are statement pieces in their own right as they are estate pieces. Princess Diana’s engagement ring consisted of 14 solitaire diamonds that surrounded a 12 carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-karat white gold was not only stunning in the 80’s; moreover, was equally as regal when it donned Kate Middleton’s finger for her engagement. This also created quite a rush for not only this kind of rings for future engagements but reminded people that rings within this category are options!

Fortunately whether you’re classic or a modern bride to be and would like to make a bigger statement with estate jewelry that has a number of gemstone options, I have selected some of my favorites! I love a great statement piece and thanks to Oak Gem, (the rings above are from this site which is perfect when you want to start planning what your options are) there are a number of options that fit your personality and will enhance the significance of your special day. In addition this is a great site for your wedding ring too!
