Nathan Hartnett of Men’s Rings Online says that engagement rings for blokes are one of the fastest-growing categories.
“A men’s engagement ring is usually a fairly plain band that also includes one or more inset stones,” he explains. “They are typically different to their wedding ring, and after marriage are worn as a dress ring on their right hand.”
This online jewellery boutique boasts a large range of designs – both traditional as well as unique – and purchases are shipped straight away (which is great if you’re looking for a wedding ring last-minute).
Brushed, polished and dual-tone Tungsten wedding bands are a great option for functionality and style – and they come with a scratch-proof waranty!
“Black rings have been flying out the door recently,” says Nathan. “We don’t see this trend stopping anytime soon, but looking forward I think 2017 will be a popular year for wedding bands that incorporate both metal and wood.”
While some men are used to wearing jewellery or rings, for some guys their wedding ring will be the first piece they’ve worn (aside from a watch, perhaps). It pays to take into account practicality and longevity of a ring.
Nathan says that while it is always up to the customer to choose a ring that suits their personal taste, some styles are much harder wearing than others: titanium and tungsten, for example, are much stronger and harder than softer metals like gold and silver.
