Men's Wedding Band Guide
At Ella Rose, we offer an incredible collection of men's wedding rings that are available in a variety of colors, widths, and sizes. All of our bands are comfort-fit style. Carefully crafted in the United States, our men's wedding bands undergo a six-step quality control process to ensure that your ring lasts a lifetime. We hope the overview below helps you in making a decision as you search for the perfect band that fits his lifestyle or best matches her ring set.
The width is the horizontal measurement of the band. The choice in band size is up to you and what works best for your fingers. Standard widths tend to range between 4mm and 6m; however, bands up to 12mm can be ordered. Wider bands allow for more design details, gemstones and/or engraving.
There are a variety of finishes that can be applied to the band surface. Combinations of several finishes are used to create unique textures and looks. Here are the basic finishes to consider:
A high-shine surface
A row of tiny beads along the edge or boundary of a ring.
A brushed finish that has a smooth, but less shiny, surface.
Coarse brush finish with a more rugged look than satin.
A hand-wrought appearance achieved by using the round end of a ball-peen hammer to texture the band surface.
An engraved finish where lines flow around, across, or diagonally.
Platinum is a rare and precious metal that is renowned for its hardness and hefty weight. Platinum is a dense, malleable, and ductile metal that is four times stronger than gold. It has a silvery-white luster that imparts unmistakable elegance and looks great with a variety of gemstones. At Ella Rose, we use only the purest platinum alloys to craft our fine jewelry. All of our platinum consists of at least 95% pure platinum, with a maximum of 5% mixed alloy metals.
Gold is a precious metal that is naturally found in a distinct yellow color. Gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Although gold is very strong, it's the most malleable of all precious metals. At Ella Rose, we manufacture our jewelry using either 18kt or 14kt gold. We offer our designs in white, yellow, and rose gold. Since pure gold is too soft for everyday wear, it is alloyed with a mixture of metals to give it strength and durability.
18kt Gold Purity – Composed of 75% gold and 25% of alloyed metals.
14kt Gold Purity - Composed of 58.3% gold and 41.7% of alloyed metals.
Yellow gold has a natural, rich shine. The alloys most commonly used are copper and silver.
White gold has a silvery-white characteristic that is achieved by combining alloys such as silver, nickel, and zinc that are white in nature. Most white gold jewelry is electroplated with a platinum-derivative liquid called rhodium to make it more “white.” Rhodium plating can wear off over time, allowing the gold’s natural yellow hue to shine through, but replating a ring is a simple process.
Rose gold is created by mixing a copper alloy with pure gold. The result is a handsome pink hue which has become very popular over the last decade.
Ella Rose offers complimentary engraving on all wedding bands. We offer either Block or Script font styles.
