Although weddings seem to center around the bride and her desires, a wedding is a union between two people, thus both people should be active in the planning of the wedding. Both voices should be heard while making the decisions, as this is an important day in both of your lives.
If you have an opinionated bride-to-be, perhaps is it wise to pick your battles. One part of the marriage that you should have full control over is your pick of wedding band. There are many different types of precious metals that are appropriate choices for wedding jewelry, however one metal in particular is the most renowned as well as the most sought after. A platinum ring is the archetype of what a wedding band should be.
Platinum wedding bands for men are bright white in color. They do not require rhodium-plating like white gold, which makes upkeep of these rings much simpler. Over time, a patina develops over time, which is unique to a platinum wedding ring. A professional jeweler will be able to restore your ring to pristine, high-polish condition if you prefer this look.
