This classic men’s wedding ring features a raised center section with contrasting finishes and milgrain accents on the yellow gold band. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who came into our Bellevue showroom to look at some sample pieces and discuss the custom design process. After getting his approval for the CAD proofs of the design we developed for him, we moved his piece into production.
This ring is divided into two parts, with the center section sitting slightly higher than the rails on the sides. This gives the piece a visual complexity without the need to add gemstones or other flashy features, and it also contributes to the classical overtones of the piece.
Contrasting Finishes and Milgrain
To make the separation between the two sections of the ring clearer, different finishes were used on each. The middle piece was hammered and then brushed, creating a matte effect on top of the gently undulating, organic surface. This stands in stark opposition to the smooth, high polish found on the side rails. And to clearly outline the boundaries of each area, milgrain beading runs along the sides of the center section, framing it beautifully.
Custom Wedding Rings
If you like this style of ring, there are many ways to adjust it to make it fit your personal style. One option to consider is changing the width of the band, as this can have a dramatic impact on the look of the piece when you are wearing it. This band is 6mm wide, which is at the narrow end of the normal range for a men’s ring. The most popular width for this type of piece is closer to 8mm, and you could even go wider if you prefer something more substantial.
Other customization options include using a different colored metal, switching up the combination of finishes, and adding in a gemstone or some custom hand engraving. Even if you don’t want to put a gemstone on the outside of your ring, having one flush set on the inside of the band is a great way to create a link with the women’s rings that complete the wedding set. These are all options our team can go over with you, and we’ll help you refine your design until you are 100% satisfied that we have the right combination to create the perfect piece for you.
