More than just pieces of fashion jewelry, men’s wedding rings are a lasting symbol of love and fidelity. Just like you plan every other detail of your wedding day, it goes without saying that you should choose a wedding ring carefully. This article will help you choose a men’s gold wedding ring that you will enjoy and appreciate for a lifetime. 



For most men, gold wedding rings are the most traditional choice, but choosing a gold ring doesn’t mean you need to buy a plain yellow-gold band. Many men opt for a white gold band, or one that is brushed, beveled or embellished with diamonds or gemstones. With so many varieties now available, men have more choices than ever in wedding rings. 

Gold wedding bands are usually made in 10-karat, 14-karat and 18-karat gold, and they are available in white, yellow or rose gold. Because gold is a soft metal it can easily be engraved, but it can also scratch easily. Fortunately, it can also be polished to a brilliant shine. 

Buying a men’s gold wedding band is quite simple. Here are some tips: 

  • First, choose the color gold you like best – white, yellow or rose gold. Keep in mind that you may want to match your ring with your fiance’s wedding band, which could dictate the color gold that you choose. Also, if you typically wear a stainless steel or silver watch, you may want to choose white gold for the best match. 

  • Start browsing some online jewelry stores or look through brochures to determine the style of band you want. Choices range from plain no-nonsense wedding bands to intricate engraved designs, two-toned bands, and rings that include diamonds. 

  • Next, decide on the weight and thickness of the band. Try on a selection of rings with varying widths to see which one is the best fit for you. Generally, men with larger hands look best with bulkier rings, and men with smaller hands are happier with a narrow band. 

  • Finally, make sure you know your ring size before you order a ring. This can be done quite easily at home using a piece of paper, and most online jewelers have sizing charts that can help you. 

Once you have completed these steps, start shopping for men’s gold wedding rings and comparing prices for the rings you like best. For many years to come, whenever you look at your left hand, you will be happy you took the time to choose the perfect wedding ring.
