Guest Post by Alan Cairns:
Lots of men don’t like jewelry – they consider it to be feminine, unnecessary, or too expensive and fragile to be worn on a daily basis. There are several good reasons for this, and there are also several good solutions for men who require a robust and attractive wedding ring for their big day.
Historically it has only been women who have worn wedding rings, both parties wearing a ring is something that emerged in the last half of the Twentieth Century. Significant numbers of men have begun wearing wedding rings and this has now become the norm.
Many men who work manual or physical jobs fear that an expensive wedding ring will become damaged during their work. Construction workers, medical professionals, mechanics, engineers and athletes can find a robust and attractive wedding ring at a reasonable price, with titanium!
Titanium might not be a precious metal, but it is the strongest. Titanium wedding rings are popular with people whose lifestyles or careers put their jewelry at risk, and this doesn’t mean that a man’s ring can’t match the bride’s; precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum can be added to the inlay of a titanium wedding ring to help them to match.
Titanium Rings by Ring Jewellery
Titanium is a grey color that can be darked with satin, brushed or matte finishes. It can also have its color changed through anodization and can be enamelled to create stripes or patterned inlays.
Some men say the reason they don’t wear a wedding ring is because it feels uncomfortable. These men have selected the wrong ring. Most guys make the mistake of buying a ring that is too large, either through some mistaken belief that they will “grow into” the ring, or simply lack the time to get a ring resized by a jeweler.
