Blue nile gives good industry standards for pricing… obvioulsy some places are less or more. You pay a lot more for name brands – Tiffany, Cartier etc…

I just bought my soon to be hubby one but we tried on different fits and styles in the store first. “Comfort fit” is something to look for as men typically don’t wear rings and this will help.

As for ring size… that’s a tough one… you also need to consider ring thickness (mm) – again this is down to personal preference.

 

Hope that helps!

@anonabon:  If you have a very specific idea of what you want, I’d go straight to a jeweler/etsy and have someone make a custom band for you.  Before that, you should probably have your boyfriend go into a jewelery shop and use a ring sizer to figure out what size he is–better to order in the right size (or close) than have to resize in a big way.

@anonabon:  Do you know what style of ring he likes? I discovered when we went ring shopping 2 weeks ago that if left to my own devices, the ring I would have picked out he wouldn’t have liked at all.

 

Most women have input on their e-ring & wedding band.  Make sure you get his as well.

@anonabon:  Do you know what he likes? It actually surprised me how specific my husband was with what he wanted. I think your best bet is going to be taking him into a store and having him try things on. If I had picked out a ring that I thought he liked, I would have been so wrong!

We went shopping together and my FI picked this band out, he loved it and thinks that the black diamonds are a little more masculine.

My fiance ended up going with a plain platinum band that features a brushed center. He loves it!

 

We purchased all of our rings from deBebians and have been super happy! They also have men’s diamond rings: http://www.debebians.com/mens-wedding-bands-with-diamonds.html

My fiance also purchased a titanium ring for him to wear when he’s doing anything rough with his hands.

@lulu_honey:  Looks like my hubby’s ring!

 

 

 

I recommend your bf go into a store and get his official size. It’s hard to resize a man’s ring depending on the jeweler. Can’t he just come with you? Or is it a surprise..like are you going to propose to him?! This is getting more popular so I can’t rule it out 😉

My hubby wanted a yellow golf ring, but his does have the brushed centre and a diamond. 

 

 

 I don’t remember how much it was honestly. We just got it at our family jeweler. It’s a pretty common style.

Titanium was orginally an industrial metal.  However it has become really popular for wedding rings–especially men’s rings.  It does have its downsides.  You can’t have custom designs made with it, or have it resized.  It is very durable though–much more so than gold.  The price of titanium is much cheaper though than other precious metals.  It can also be engraved.

I would recommend having your fiance look at rings.  My fiance picked out his ring–it’s totally not one I would have picked out for him.  (It is also titanium).

@anonabon:  Ok haha I didn’t know 😉 

It’s super hard to size a man’s ring so it’s best you know exactly which size he is. Honestly though it can vary depending on the ring, meaning what shape. A flat band can fit totally different than a round band. For instance my DH was a size bigger for a flat band. I’ll post a pic!
