As the ring that follows after the jaw-dropping engagement ring, many couples tend to overlook their wedding band selection, as they busy themselves with checking off their lengthy wedding planning list. Because of that, some couples leave the search to the last month before the wedding day. However, giving your wedding ring hunt more time and thought is actually very much worthwhile! After all, more than completing your aesthetic ring stack, these meaningful bands are a steadfast symbol of the eternal love between you and your partner.
Here at Love & Co., we also understand that men’s wedding bands can be a tad tricky. While a gorgeous rose gold ring with gemstones beautifully arranged in a pave setting can melt the hearts of many women, it might not be what some men like to carry. As such, to help kick-start your hunt for his wedding band, check out our favourite choices for men’s bands, and top tips for finding the one he will love to wear for a lifetime!
Considerations in perfecting his ring choice
1. Know his favourite ring profile
While getting the correct ring size is crucial, figuring out his favourite ring profile is another factor in finding his one, true wedding band. In fact, nailing the ring profile is just as important as understanding his ring size. More than that perfect fit, the right ring profile ensures maximum comfort for the wearer. Here’s a closer look at the four most common ring profiles for him.
Classic court rings
A traditional choice for many couples, this profile carries both a rounded interior and exterior, which results in an almost-rounded ring – offering utmost comfort across all the various ring profiles.
Although this profile is looks similar to the classic court one, only the exterior of the D-shaped ring is rounded. This way, the flat interior provides a slimmer look to the ring, while the rounded exterior offers the classic court outlook. What’s more, if your significant other leads an active lifestyle, this streamlined ring profile would be just perfect for him.
As the name suggests, this profile’s interior and exterior surfaces are both flat, allowing the surface of the whole wedding band to fit most comfortably on the fingers. That being said, this profile is probably not for partners who work with their hands or lead active lifestyles – you wouldn’t want their stunning flat rings to catch onto machinery or their clothing.
Flat court rings
Still can’t decide between court or flat profiles? Then this last one might be just right for him with a mix of both styles! This profile flaunts a classic look from the flat exterior, which is matched with a highly comfortable rounded interior; truly a sleek design that can be carried easily.
2. Select a width that sits well with him
Aside from ring profiles, this next tip is best tackled with another set of recommendations. While the average ring width many couples go for is between 6-8mm, you don’t have to do the same. Especially for wedding bands that he’ll adore for a lifetime, it’s best to bear the following in mind when perfecting the ring selection.
Thick wedding bands (7mm or greater)
While thicker wedding bands are typically more expensive with a larger amount of precious metal, this can be a highly practical choice for him. Usually, males that opt for this either have larger hands, ring sizes over 9, broader body types, or simply prefer a more distinctive band on the hand! One key tip: it’s best to try on the band before confirming your purchase because wider bands tend to be tighter on the fingers.
Narrow wedding bands (2-6mm)
Besides being more affordable, narrow wedding bands are an excellent choice for men who aren’t used to wearing rings. And if your partner has smaller hands, more slender fingers, or a ring size under 9, these less bulky bands are sure to sit more comfortably on their hands.
Our top favourites to kick-start your hunt
Now that you’ve figured out the perfect ring profile and width for your beloved, the next question is: what design can fit the various ring widths and profiles? Fret not, we’ve got you covered with a compilation of our top favourites, all for you to draw inspiration from.

If your partner prefers a more traditional outlook, classic wedding bands are the way to go! Whether he prefers white gold, platinum, yellow gold, or even rose gold, here at Love & Co. we offer a range of classic bands in your choice of metal. This time-honoured band choice might not carry diamonds or other gemstones, but exudes brilliance in the metal selection.

For that, consider roping in two different metal tones to accentuate the overall look for his wedding band. Dual tone bands are ideal for a man with a keen sense of style, but prefer not to carry a conventional ring or one with a gem. Let your man get the best of both worlds with this refined choice.

4. For a comfort fit that sits on his finger snugly
Last but definitely not the least is ensuring that your man gets the comfort fit he deserves! You’d want to ensure that your symbol of eternal love is carried effortlessly by your partner, so don’t forget to reel in this tip.
But what exactly is a comfort fit? A comfort fit, more prevalent among men than women’s rings, is a ring with an added piece of gold on the interior surface, to create a dome and make the ring easier to slide over larger knuckles. This offers an added level of comfort, especially for men who wear their wedding bands daily. While a standard fit without the extra metal is not necessarily uncomfortable, if you prefer to that added comfort, let our experienced Love & Co. team incorporate it flawlessly with our highly precise CNC machines.
