Trending for Men: Wedding Band Options

Monday, March 18, 2019 9:42:13 AM America/New_York

wedding band trends for men

Today, the options for men’s wedding bands are expansive. Men now have the options in designs ranging from the simple and traditional to customizing every aspect of their wedding band. It’s no longer only women who get to have all the fun shopping for wedding bands! Whether you’re purchasing a wedding band for the first time or looking to update the one you currently wear, these are the most recent trends for men!

Textures

Many designers are including textures to men’s wedding bands. It is a subtle way to individualize your ring. If you are purchasing a wedding band for the first time, a textured wedding band gives a modern twist on a traditional style. If you’re looking to update your wedding band for an anniversary, adding a texture allows you to keep the classic style, but with an edge.

Natural Materials

This trend is perfect for the man who loves the outdoors. Many natural elements, like wood, walnut, or camouflage are becoming more popular for men’s wedding bands. Every man has his own style and interests, so this trend is the perfect way to make his wedding band represent a part of his personality.

Personalization

When we hear about inscriptions on a wedding band, many people immediately think about words or dates on the inside of the band. However, there are so many ways to personalize the outside of a man’s wedding band. Adding the grooves of your partner’s fingerprint is a beautiful way to signify your commitment. If there is an activity that brought you and your partner together, companies like Lashbrook offer more detailed personalization, like a series of musical notes, piano keys, forests, or even a camera lens!

Mixed Metals

Women aren’t the only ones who can enjoy a variety of colors and metals on their rings! One of the more recent trends among men’s wedding bands is adding different types of metals to create a solid pattern. This small detail can make a big difference in the appearance of the ring by giving it a more modern design.

Two is Better Than One: The Stacking Wedding Band Trend

Wednesday, March 6, 2019 11:35:44 AM America/New_York

Stacking Wedding Band Trend

Times are changing in the wedding jewelry industry! The traditional engagement ring and wedding band style has evolved into a three-piece set. This trend is gaining popularity due to its sentimental and aesthetic value.

What is the stacking trend?

Recently there has been an increase in popularity with stackable fashion jewelry. It allows women the opportunity to change their jewelry depending on their mood, outfit, or occasion. It is not surprising that this trend would extend into bridal jewelry.

Although this trend is new to the United States, many other countries have been stacking their wedding bands for years. Women in Scandinavia wear three rings as a representation of engagement, marriage, and motherhood.

What are my options for stacked wedding bands?

The second wedding band has grown in popularity because it adds symmetry to the appearance of the rings. One of the ways to use a second wedding band is placing one above and below the engagement ring. This style tends to appeal to those who prefer a cleaner, more balanced aesthetic. On the other hand, those who prefer a more unique style would gravitate towards wedding bands that curve around the diamond to give a modern twist on tradition.

Is there significance behind a second wedding band?

The rise of the nontraditional engagement ring has opened the door to many different and individualized styles for women to tell their love stories through their bridal jewelry. Symbolism is one of the biggest draws of this trend, as it can hold several different meanings.

Traditionally, the engagement ring is said to symbolize commitment, while the wedding band represents unity. When the wedding bands are on either side of the engagement ring, the ensemble symbolizes a commitment that is sealed in. The second wedding band is often given as a first anniversary gift, representing an eternal love. Like the Scandinavian tradition, a second wedding band would represent the new step into motherhood, often called a “push present.” No matter the occasion, this ring represents the important moments in your life story.

How do I choose a second wedding band?

The stacking trend is all about flexibility, versatility, and balance. If you are looking to add a second wedding band, assess what you currently own and purchase to compliment your rings. They don’t need to match your current jewelry, but they should create a balanced look. If you’re already committed to the idea of two wedding bands, consider buying them at the same time to save money.

Our Wedding Band Blitz has all your options!

If the stackable wedding band look is your style, M.R.T. Jewelers wants to be your resource. Our Wedding Band Blitz event, held the weekend of April 5th through 7th, showcases all your favorite styles at 20% off. With the largest inventory in Rhode Island, you can be sure to find the wedding band(s) that tell your love story.

Valentine’s Day Proposals: Trendy or Tacky?

Friday, February 8, 2019 12:41:55 PM America/New_York

valentines day proposals

If there has ever been a topic to divide women, it would be Valentine’s Day proposals. The introduction of social media has made this even more of a hot topic. Is Valentine’s Day the best day to give her the engagement ring she’s been waiting for?

Is it trendy?

Consider your bride-to-be. If she’s a traditional romantic, then this would be the perfect time to pop the question. She will appreciate the sentimentality of taking the day of celebrating love and making it into an unforgettable moment. Make sure you plan this in advance to book a photographer!

Is it tacky?

The rise of the internet and social media has really created the main issue to Valentine’s Day proposals. All couples will be posting about their plans, but they will (or at least, should) be focusing on their own relationship. Your news could likely be lost in a sea of Valentine’s Day love posts. Many women also find these proposals to be lazy and unoriginal because the day is already celebrating the love you both share for each other.

Does it matter?

No matter what day of the year you get engaged, you should be trying to make her feel special and loved. The moment when you propose should be a reflection on your relationship and should match her personality. If she wants to spend the rest of her life with you, an engagement ring and you asking her to marry you is all she needs!

Think, but don’t overthink!

You will be telling this story for the rest of your lives, so it’s important to be creative and thoughtful. When considering the perfect way to pop the question, reflect on the future you imagine with her. What kind of love story do you want to show to your children and grandchildren? If you overthink details or stress about making it too extravagant, she may notice your tension and become worried that there is an issue in the relationship.

At M.R.T. Jewelers, we want to be a part of your love story. We can provide you with the engagement ring of her dreams, but it’s up to you to do the rest!

Top 3 Reasons for Watch Repair

Thursday, January 17, 2019 9:30:06 AM America/New_York

Your watch has an important role in your life. It represents class, style, and serves as the most sophisticated way to manage your time.

When you find an issue with your watch, it can be tempting to troubleshoot on your own, but M.R.T. Jewelers strongly advises you to visit their trained and experienced professionals for any watch repairs. Watches are intricate and made up of many tiny moving parts that you could unknowingly damage when trying to fix your watch on your own.

What are the most common reasons for watch repair?

Batteries

The most common reason why people visit a professional for watch repair is issues with the battery. Just like most working technology, a battery has a lifespan that can be shortened based on how well you take care of it. For example, various functions of your watch, use of the timer, and extreme temperatures can decrease your battery’s lifespan.  Although a seemingly simple fix, we strongly advise bringing your watch to a trained professional to ensure proper care.

Water Damage

Even a drop of water can cause damage to the internal pieces of your watch. If there are any weakness in the seals of the watch, moisture can seep in and cause internal rusting. When the gears become rusty, they will need to be replaced rather than repaired and will cause issues in the quality of the watch.

Physical Damage

Although many day-to-day activities may seem like a nonissue, consider the impact they have on your watch. The delicacy of its internal structure can be damaged by wearing your watch while participating in vigorous activities or ones that require repetitive movements. We also recommend taking your watch off before you go to bed. Bringing your watch to the reputable technicians at M.R.T. Jewelers is the safest way to correct any issue related to physical damage.

At M.R.T. Jewelers, we want to be your resource for understanding how to best take care of all your jewelry, including watches. For any questions about watch repair or our other Full Circle Jewelry Solutions, call us at (401) 435-3500.

Everything You Need to Know About Ring Resizing

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 9:49:08 AM America/New_York

Picture this: the love of your life is down on one knee asking you to be his wife. It’s all perfect. But when you try on the ring, it doesn’t fit!

Before the happy tears turn to sad tears, M.R.T. Jewelers wants to let you know that we handle ring resizing! Whether your ring is too big or too small, we can size the ring to your perfect fit.

But how is a ring supposed to fit? You should be able to place it on your finger easily and remove it with slight resistance.

What do I do when I need ring resizing?

Your first action should be trying to find an experienced jeweler. When a ring needs to be larger, the band will be cut and additional metal that matches the rest of the band will be added. Conversely, when making a ring smaller, the jeweler will cut the band and solder it shut. The type of metal used on the band impacts how natural the reattachment will appear.

Is there any type of metal that can’t be resized?

Yes. If your ring is titanium, tungsten carbide, or stainless steel, the metals do not allow for a proper reattachment.

How much will it cost to resize my ring?

There are a few factors that determine the cost of resizing a ring.

  • Larger vs. smaller

  • Thickness of the band

  • Stones

  • Type of Metal

At M.R.T. Jewelers, we evaluate each ring to determine the cost of resizing. If you’re interested in making your ring smaller, the price ranges from $25-$90 depending on the factors listed above. When making your ring larger, the cost ranges from $35-$140.

Our experienced jewelers work with you to ensure that your dream ring is the perfect fit. Call us at (401) 435-3500 to learn more about ring resizing and our Full Circle Jewelry Solutions.
