Cutting-edge Wedding Jewelry Fashion for Your Cutting-edge Wedding

Should men wear wedding rings? And, what about engagement rings? Women wear them-does this mean that men should agree to wear them too? I have always worn rings, but sometimes I will go out without them on. But, I can see how some men, who have never worn a ring, would not want to wear one after getting married. I also think if you trust someone it should not really matter whether your partner wants to wear a ring or not.

Men's wedding rings are somewhat of a new phenomenon. Most likely your fathers do not wear wedding rings but your friends do. In the United States it was very rare for a groom to receive a ring before World War II.

Which finger is the ring worn on, and why? Generally a man's wedding band is worn on the ring finger, the same as for women. The ring finger, for those unmarried men not familiar with the concept, is the fourth finger of the left hand. This is considered to be the finger closest to the heart.

Men's wedding rings have become increasingly more common since that time. Today it is probably as common for a newly married man to wear a ring as not. This may be due to several factors. The modern man may consider it his duty to choose to make the same public marital statement as his wife will. And his wife may well consider it a condition of the marriage that he do so. After all, in these days of equality, if she is prepared to make a statement then should he not do so as well?

If you think of jewelry as something only for women and girls, fear not. Your ring need not be effeminate. Most men's rings are simple wide bands that would never be confused with women's jewelry. On the contrary, such a ring can add to the width and look of strength of your hands. Ask your jeweler to assist you with styles that will be the most flattering and tasteful worn on your particular hand.
