Do you love a traditional look, or do you want to try something unique ? Luckily, Roper’s Jewelers provides not only an array of options, but the ability to customize your wedding ring.

Look for the Right Material

When choosing the perfect wedding band, you need to decide on a metal. Today there is a wide range of wedding band materials available. At Roper’s Jewelers our most popular metals for wedding bands include: Gold, Platinum, Sterling Silver, Tantalum, Zirconium, and Titanium.

  • Gold Wedding Bands

When it comes to choosing traditional jewelry, gold is one of the ideal choices. Amongst the gold, yellow gold is standard as well as natural looking. Rose gold and white gold are also beautiful color options when using gold as material for a wedding band. One great aspect about choosing gold for your wedding ring is that they won’t tarnish. Gold rings will remain the same, keeping your wedding memories fresh and beautiful.

  • Platinum Wedding Rings

The precious metal known for its white gleam, platinum, is a suitable choice for your loved one’s wedding band. Many people prefer to choose men’s wedding bands made with platinum for its bright and shiny demeanor. However, platinum is more susceptible to scratches and requires more care than some other metals.

  • Sterling Silver Men’s Wedding Band

Sterling silver men’s wedding bands are a timeless piece. Being hypoallergenic, the band won’t cause itchiness or skin irritation. Made with 92.5% pure silver, they are durable and long-lasting. If you’re allergic to jewelry made with nickel, you can choose sterling silver.

  • Tantalum Rings

One benefit of choosing tantalum for a ring worn in everyday life is its durability. A hard and scratch-resistant material, tantalum rings are a great choice for those who want a beautiful band at a more affordable price. No maintenance or special care is needed. Tantalum is scarce, which is reflected in its price, but it is still less expensive than platinum. Price wise, tantalum is between precious and industrial metals.

  • Zirconium Bands

Gone are the days when gold, silver, and platinum were the ultimate materials. Nowadays, zirconium is one of the most popular materials for men’s wedding bands. Due to its durable nature zirconium won’t fade, tarnish, or change its color. It is budget-friendly and suitable for sensitive skin too.

  • Titanium Wedding Bands

Titanium is an extremely durable material that holds shape and maintains its appearance for a lifetime. Wedding bands made of titanium will not bend, break or melt in regular circumstances. Titanium is on the affordable side of the wedding ring market, generally less expensive than gold or sterling silver rings.

Look for the Right Wedding Band Style

Now that you’ve got an idea about the materials, it’s time to pick the right style.

  • Traditional Wedding Band

If you love traditional items, you have an array of conventional wedding bands to choose from. You can even customize your ring to match your style and personality with special reminders.

  • Modern Wedding Rings

Textured finishes, sculpted edges, and patterned inlays are things you can look for when searching for a modern wedding band. Patterned wedding rings look stylish and attention-grabbing. They are a perfect fit for those who love updated and trending styles.

What to Consider While Purchasing Wedding Bands?

If you’re looking to buy wedding bands for yourself or your betrothed, here are a few things to consider.

  • Sizing

Double-check the ring size before you settle on any type or style of a wedding band. It will help you to ensure that you buy the right-fit wedding band without hassle. There’s a lot of factors that go into finding your perfect ring size . Stop by one of our two Roper’s Jewelers locations in Auburn for a free ring sizing by one of our friendly professionals!

  • Timing

It’s not uncommon for the bride and groom to leave the wedding band purchase until the last minute. However, this isn’t the best way to complete your wedding shopping. Be sure to order the wedding band at least two months before the ceremony. If you’re choosing customized rings, be sure you start the process 3-4 months prior to your wedding date.
