Ah, the paradox of choice. In a world where we have endless career choices, clothing choices, and food choices, it’s no wonder we become indecisive and anxious about whether we have made exactly the best decision. More choice is better though, right? Perhaps, and for some things in life that I know a lot about, I am glad to have choice because I see distinct differences between options.
However, we have a hunch that most blokes couldn’t pick a wedding ring from a burger ring, because jewellery isn’t their thing. That’s why we’ve done the research, and we know what looks good. We’ve gone for a very precise and specific ring width, shape, fit, thickness, colour and finish that will look good on any Gentleman’s hand. We’ve eliminated the choice, because you’ve got better things to do.
Titanium ticks all the boxes. It’s lightweight, strong, durable, affordable, fashionable, clean and simple. It’s the perfect material to make a ring out of that symbolises marriage.
To put it in perspective, it’s about 1/4 the weight of gold, but is 4 times as strong/scratch resistant. It’ll still get scratches, don’t get us wrong, but just not to the extent a silver, gold or platinum ring would.
In our view, there’s no better metal for a men’s wedding ring – that’s why The Gentleman’s Smith uses it.
Our rings are Titanium TA1 grade (CP Grade 1), which is commercially pure Titanium (i.e. unalloyed).
Men’s wedding rings have traditionally been made out of Gold or, more recently, Platinum. While these are precious metals, they’re incredibly soft and therefore attract scratches like crazy.
Platinum is cool because its scratches can be polished away. White Gold is less convenient, as scratches need to be buffed out and then the ring needs to be re-dipped in a Rhodium or similar coating (a not-cheap, nor quick, process).
You’re probably thinking “why are you selling me on Platinum, aren’t your rings made of Titanium?” Well, while Platinum is cool, it’s also 10x the price. Retail stores sell similar looking rings to ours, but in Platinum, for $2000-$2500… in our opinion, that’s a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a ring.
Gold rings, in a similar look to ours, usually retail for $1000-$1500.
What might you need a warranty for? Great question, not much can go wrong with a ring. But, your finger could change in size over the years. If this is the case, we’d like to extend a lifetime exchange for your ring, so you know that as long as the Gentleman’s Smith exists, you’ll have a ring which fits your fingers. Better yet, if your ring finds itself lost or stolen and isn’t covered by any insurance, then we’d be happy to replace it for half our normal price.
Can you return your ring? You sure can so long as it’s still in as new condition. We’re confident you won’t find a better ring for a better price, but if you change your mind for any reason, then we’ll sort out a return for you. Just contact us within the first 60 days.
The ring is 5.5mm wide and under 2mm thick.
