o, you’ve just got engaged.Whether you are a man or a woman you have an important decision to make (amongst the myriad of other decisions) about mens wedding rings. It’s this. Will the man in your relationship wear one?Maybe that’s you, maybe not. But you both need to think about it.You see it’s only since the second world war that modern men have started to publicly display their marital status by the wearing of a man wedding ring.Prior to that it was rare for a man to wear a ring when he married. Men were able to hide their marital status behind the tradition that required a woman to wear a wedding ring, but not a man.However during the war many US soldiers chose to wear mens wedding rings as a public symbol of their marital status whilst away at war and that has started a tradition for the modern man. Now it’s very common for a man to wear a mens wedding ring, perhaps the norm.So, what decisions need to be made? Well the first is this. Will he wear one? That’s probably the hardest decision in theprocess.For a woman there’s no decision. She’s engaged, she wants the ring. For her she needs an engagement ring as well as a wedding ring, and an expensive engagement ring at that. But for a man it’s not so straight forward.
His men’s wedding ring needs to fit his personality. All these characteristics, as well as many others, bear on your choice of ring. A eheringe selbst schmieden man with a strong flamboyant personality would be much more likely to prefer a ring which stands out. Which sets him apart from the crowd, which says “look at me”. On the other hand a man with a more conservative type of personality would probably prefer to say “I’m married but I’m not going to shout it from the rooftop” with his ring.Similarly, think about his stature. Is he short or tall? Is he large or small? Does he have long slender fingers or short stubby fingers? These characteristics also bear on the style of ring selected.
So size up the man before making a decision on the style of ring for him.
