So, you've just got engaged.

Whether you are a guy or perhaps a woman you have an important decision to create (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 began to publicly display their marital status by the wearing of a man wedding ring.

Prior to that it had been rare for a guy to wear a ring when he married. Men could actually hide their marital status behind the tradition that required a female to wear a marriage ring, but not a man.

However through the war many US soldiers chose to wear mens wedding rings as a public symbol of their marital status whilst away at war and which has started a tradition for the modern man. Now it's very common for a guy to wear a mens wedding band, perhaps the norm.

So, what need to be made? Well the first is this. Will he wear one? That's most likely the hardest decision in the process.

For a woman there's no decision. She's engaged, she wants the ring. For her she needs an gemstone as well as a wedding ring, and an expensive engagement ring at that. But for a man it isn't so straight forward.

So a very important section of the process is for both of you to talk about it. Do you both have strong feelings about the man wearing a man wedding ring, either one way or the other? Does the woman believe that if she actually is to publicly display her marital status then it's only fair he do exactly the same? Does he have any reservations about wearing a ring and when just what exactly are they? You both have to talk over your feelings about the wearing of a guy wedding band. Establish the groundwork.

Once and if you have made a decision that he will wear a ring then that's just the start. It's perfectly possible to get a his and hers matching wedding ring set. These are rings designed as matching sets for you both in order that both your wedding rings go well together. So are you going to search for matching rings, or simply buy him a ring and focus on hers separately?

Next you have to decide what type of ring. There is a whole world of designs for mens wedding rings out there. A massive range of styles and materials. A guy makes a statement about himself in selecting the ring he will wear for his wife, and she is a part of that statement if she actually is actively involved in the decision.

Think about his personality. Is he outgoing or shy? Is he outrageous or conservative? Is he flamboyant? Understated? When he buys clothes what does he select? Does he buy colourful flamboyant ties or ties which fit in with the style of the suit? Would he wear clothes which will make him stand out from the crowd or does he would rather meld in?

His men's wedding ring needs to fit his personality. Each one of these characteristics, and many others, bear on your own choice of ring. A man with a solid flamboyant personality will be more likely to prefer a ring which sticks out. Which sets him in addition to the crowd, which says "look at me". However a man with a far more conservative kind of personality would probably would rather say "I'm married but I'm not likely to shout it from the rooftop" along with his ring.

Similarly, consider 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 deciding on the style of ring for him.

The most common form of mens wedding ring is the simple band style. Often in gold or white gold, it is plain and unadorned. A straightforward statement of marital status and nothing else. But even amongst simple bands there are decisions to create. How wide? What colour? Which kind of material? New materials such as Titanium or Platinum have broadened the choices hugely. Mens black Titanium rings really catch the eye.

Or between the more traditional materials sterling silver men's wedding rings look stunning. Or brushed mens white gold wedding rings. The range of choices now could be enormous.
And it's not essential to decide on an individual material. Mens two toned gold marriage rings, utilising white and gold, are popular. Perhaps match the ring material with gemstones such as rubies or sapphires or even diamonds to create a stunning effect.

It's perfectly possible to get custom made rings and even design them yourself. The internet offers a big selection of choices and also offers rings and other jewelry dramatically cheaper than your traditional bricks and mortar stores. Several online jewellers provide a design your personal mens wedding ring service to enable you to design a ring that's unique to you.
