Buying a durable wedding ring for working hands

For anyone searching for the best wedding bands for working hands, a durable, wear-resistant wedding ring has its merits. Owing to increased wear-and-tear on a wedding band, hardness, and durability remain key factors for long-term wear.

Are plain wedding bands for working hands the best choice?

Plain wedding rings offer the greatest durability. In addition to your precious metal choice, the thickness will influence the overall strength of your wedding band. Lightweight wedding rings lack the strength of similar styles offering greater thickness. To explain, most wedding ring styles come in at least 3 choices of thickness; light, medium and heavy-weight. Our best selling plain wedding rings fall into the medium weight category. It must be remembered that many well known high-street retailers add confusing descriptions. An example is super-heavy-weight. Many wedding rings described as super-heavy-weight fall below the gram weight of our own medium weight rings.

Best precious metals for a durable wedding ring

Across our full range of metal choices on offer, we advise Titanium or Palladium wedding bands for working hands. Titanium and Palladium will both scratch, but both are lightweight metals. Furthermore, both metals will stand knocks, scrapes and heavy wear. In contrast, 9-carat gold wears much faster and is less suitable for heavy wear. 18-carat gold has excellent durability but proceed with caution if you are considering 18-carat white gold for your wedding band. White gold receives a white Rhodium plating to brighten the slightly-tinted metal. Under heavy wear, Rhodium wears away to reveal a variation in colour between the natural white gold and the whiter Rhodium plating.

Engraved wedding rings – avoiding wear when it comes to your engraving

Many of our clients choose to apply a unique engraving. This varies between a line of text, an engraved fingerprint or even a heartbeat reading. Consider adding your engraving inside your ring. Protected within the ring, engravings are less likely to be worn away. Fingerprint inside wedding ring
