Guide to Wedding Band Finishes
Guide to Wedding Band Finishes
Before you walk down the aisle, you need to purchase the wedding rings that you and your spouse will exchange during the ceremony. Perhaps it has been years, and you would like to upgrade an out-of-date style or elevate a minimalistic band. We put together a guide to help you pick a wedding band finish that will complement your aesthetic.
The most reflective and glossy of all the finishes, a polished finish band is also referred to as a “mirror finish.” A classic choice favored in yellow and white gold, this finish is prone to showing scratches easily on its shiny surface and will require routine maintenance to retain its smooth and brilliant appearance. Traditionally loved, the polished finish draws contemporary love with its shining potential.
A remarkable luster and gentle sheen make the smooth satin finish the second most popular wedding band finish. Sophisticated without being attention-grabbing, this uncomplicated style is excellent for someone who wants a luxurious piece without many frills. Satin finish will still require maintenance by a trusted jeweler to ensure scratches remain not apparent, but not as often as the polished finish needs.
Velvet-like and opaque, the matte finish is a straightforward aesthetic for a wedding band. This look can range from professionally monochromatic to rugged while remaining smooth. A matte wedding band is lovely. When this finish is paired with multiple finishes, it can provide an intriguing design that many are sure to love.
The unique and rugged markings of the brushed finish create wedding rings with texture and style by using a wire brush on the precious metals. These rings are great for those worried about scratches being easily visible and those with an active lifestyle. Brushed finish rings will not be as reflective due to how the light and shadows will play over the band's texture.
This beloved finish is created by hitting the precious metal of the band with a hammer. Rustic and immediately recognizable, men are especially fond of this finish for its organic texture and non-shiny surface. It has a dimpled appearance with an opaque satin glow. Many artisans and handypersons love this texture.
Grainy and coarse, a sandblasted finish is perfect for those who want a noticeably textured wedding ring to wear forever. These dynamic bands are low maintenance as they generally do not show off scratches or flaws. Enjoy a sandblasted finish on any popular metals used by the world’s most sought-after designers.
