Wedding Band Finishes
Guide to Wedding Band Finishes
While men face less choices in their ring than their bride, personalization is still important through selection of the finish of the wedding band. Many of the most common wedding band finishes are timeless in style, but unique choices are available for the men who prefer the non-conventional. It is also important to consider the durability and protection from wear of each finish, which may impact your choice based on the activity level of your lifestyle. Our expert guide can help you find the best finish for your wedding band.
A polished finish is what may come to mind first when thinking of wedding bands and is favored by many men for the crisp look of the reflective surface. The refined look of these wedding bands have maintained their popularity as an eye-catching design. If a polished finish is the style that you prefer, consider opting for a tungsten ring as they are much more resistant to scratches than other polished rings, thus enduring in shine for generations.
Another highly coveted ring finish is the smoother satin finish, perfect for the humble groom with classy taste. Without the reflective shine of the polished finish, this look is less quick to draw eyes but is aesthetically pleasing upon a man’s finger. Satin finished rings are masculine and trendy for the strong businessman.
Matte finished wedding bands are another elusive choice for men who do not prefer the bolder polished finish. The appearance of a matte finish ring is no-frills yet steadfast in its appearance on the finger. The man who chooses this ring will have his eyes on his bride during their special day, always putting her first.
For the subtle refinement of a satin finish with an added touch, the brushed finish features rustic texturing resembling brush marks. This style is enduring because it disguises any scratch marks that appear over time. Brushed finish bands are very popular for men because they stand out without being too flashy.
Another distinctly unique design, hammered finish wedding bands blend texture with a satin finish. Divots in the non-reflective surface characterize the style, but designers’ trademark sets apart the band from other collections. This is caused by the way that the hammering is applied to the surface of the ring before finishing with the satin sheen.
Sandblasted wedding bands evoke a rugged aesthetic through a rougher finish that produces a look and feel of graininess. This is another band style that seamlessly hides any scratches that appear on the surface over time. A Sandblasted finish to wedding bands is perfect for the genuine alpha groom who is confident in himself and his lifelong love.
