This stylish men’s wedding ring features a rose gold center band with hammered and sandblasted finishes and polished ultra white gold rails. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who worked with our team both online and onsite in our Bellevue showroom to finalize the details of his piece.
The two-tone look of this ring is achieved by the use of 14k rose gold for the inner band and 18k ultra white gold for the rails. The color contrast this introduces into the piece helps bring complexity to the design without the use of gemstones, and it also makes the ring more versatile.
A two-tone look is especially popular on pieces like wedding bands since they are something you are going to wear everyday, and you want to be sure they look natural for every occasion. A combination of metals like this can also be used to create a link between the men’s and women’s rings in a bridal set if both metals are used in both pieces. Matching Wedding Sets
Ultra White Gold
While the rose gold takes up a sizable chunk of the top surface of the ring, the majority of the piece is actually made of ultra white gold. This is white gold that does not require rhodium plating to maintain its bright white appearance as most other white gold does.
Rhodium plating eventually wears off, especially on a high-wear item like a wedding band, and so requires replating to keep its look consistent and hide the true champagne color of the underlying metal. Ultra white gold, while slightly more expensive to begin with, will not need this type of special maintenance over the years.
Contrasting finishes are also used in this piece to make the separation between the two sections even more pronounced. This means that the rose gold section has a matte finish created by sandblasting on top of a hammered surface for a more complex texture. In contrast, the outer rails feature a smooth, high polish, which works well with the lovely color of the ultra white gold. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
