In western culture, the wedding ring is generally worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This tradition stems from Ancient Rome, when it was believed that the vein in this finger (the 'Vena Amoris') ran straight to the heart! We can help you decide on the right ring size for this finger.
Aesthetically, the choice is all yours; though gold wedding bands tend to be the most traditional pick. A factor important to consider is metal hardness. Your ring should be strong enough to withstand daily wear, especially if you're an active person. We recommend durable metals like platinum or 18ct gold.
Wedding bands vary in price based on factors such as metal type, band width and ring size. As a guide, our male wedding rings range in price from around £450 to £6,000. If you imagine yourself wearing something out of the ordinary, our custom wedding rings start at £1,500.
Otherwise known as the ‘comfort fit’ is the Court band, curved slightly on both the inside and outside. This inner-band curvature makes the band comfortable to take on and off the finger; ideal if you aren't used to wearing rings.
For a sleek and contemporary look, the Flat and Flat Court shapes boast streamlined outers. The Flat bands are levelled both inside and out, whilst the Flat Court rings offer that comfortable, curved inner.
We create our men's wedding rings in a variety of band widths, ranging from 2mm to 6mm and sometimes even beyond.
To get a feel for what's most comfortable and best suited your hand, you might find it useful to try on some of our sample wedding bands.
If you're drawn to jewellery with rustic, home-spun charm, you might appreciate a hammered finish; the perfect way to knock some charisma into the classic gold wedding band! Achieved by careful taps with a small, hand-held hammer, this organic technique leaves no two rings looking the same the same.
Hammered wedding bands are also pretty forgiving in the long run, as they're well-equipped to take day-to-day knocks.
We can round off any of our wedding rings with the finish of your choice, neither at any additional cost.
A polished finish is a timeless classic; clean and traditional.
A matte finish can be easily achieved by a once-over with a green scouring sponge - just like how Arabel was taught at jewellery school! A more contemporary take, the matte finish offers a diluted, satiny sheen. Similar to our hammered finishes, a band with a matte texture is merciful to small scratches and scuffs.
