Why do Men Wear Wedding Bands?
Men started regularly wearing wedding bands during WWII to remind them of who they were fighting for.
What do the K's mean?
24K refers to 100% gold but it is too soft for Mens Wedding Bands. Therefore metal alloys are fused with gold to create jewelry that will last.
- 18K or 18 Karat (75% Gold) - Our most pure gold option we offer but a little soft, we advise 18K if you're not doing consistent manual labor
- 14K or 14 Karat (58% Gold) - The Goldilocks, our recommended gold option for its durability and value
- 10K or 10 Karat (41% Gold ) - The most durable gold option, a great alternative to Tungsten
- Platinum - A durable and hypoallergenic precious metal, serving as a firmer alternative to 18K White Gold

Should I take my ring off?
Not if you want to stay married...
Again, Should I take my wedding ring off?
If you purchase an 18K gold mens wedding ring and want to play it safe consider taking your wedding ring off if you get the tool kit out or are lifting in the gym. Platinum, 14K and 10K are more than durable enough for normal wear.
What width men's wedding band should I wear?
Picking the width of your men's wedding band should be both personal and practical. Some people are drawn to the 3MM and others the 6MM width. If you have shorter hands but like the look of the 6MM we suggest the 4.5MM.
Why Does RING BEAR use Recylced Gold & Platinum?
Recycled Gold & Platinum provide all the value and aesthetic as traditionally mined gold while preventing nearly all of the carbon emissions. This way you can enjoy your ring even more knowing the positive practices used. You can read more here.
What color men's wedding band should I get?
Color is largely a personal preference, Yellow Gold is more traditional whereas White Gold has seen a recent rise in popularity. Or you can go with a modern look like the Black or Wooden Inlay Tungsten Band.
Note: If you desire the White Gold look, 18K white gold will resemble a yellow hue overtime and may require a complimentary re-polish or re-plating. To avoid this process we recommend Platinum which holds its natural silver colored hue.
