When it comes to picking the perfect wedding band, there are a lot of factors to consider. One of the most critical decisions is what type of finish you want on your ring. There are several different options to choose from, and each has its unique look and feel. Our team at Michael Agnello Jewelers crafted a list of the top five wedding band finishes and what makes them special.
A polished finish is the most popular and traditional choice for wedding bands. This type of finish has a classic, elegant look that will never go out of style. The glossy surface is created using a polishing wheel and reflects light beautifully. Consider this Lashbrook tungsten ceramic wedding band if you are interested in this style.
A satin finish is similar to a polished finish but has a more muted look achieved using a polishing wheel with very fine grit. The result is a ring whose surface is soft to the touch and possesses a subtle yet sophisticated sheen. This Simon G. wedding band is the perfect example of a clean, satin finish.
If you and your partner want something more unique, a matte finish is perfect for you. A finer grit is used to create this look, forming a textured surface reflecting little light. The result is a beautiful, velvety texture that is slightly coarse to the touch. This Carlex G4 ring is perfect for couples looking for a matte finish.
A brushed finish is executed by using specialized tools that create the appearance of tiny brush strokes on the surface of the ring. The result is a highly textured piece with a dynamic character that makes movement and visual interest. Its coarseness is excellent for those with active lifestyles or who frequently work with their hands, as scratches and scuffs will be nearly invisible on this type of surface. The Torque black cobalt band is an excellent example of this finish, and it's perfect for couples looking for something unique.
The hammered finish is wonderfully rustic and expressive. Similar to the brushed finish, it wonderfully camouflages any scuffs the ring may incur, ensuring its beauty lasts for years to come. The finish is achieved by tapping the surface of the ring with small, specialized hammers to create distinctive dimples in the metal. This Carlex G1 wedding band features a stunning hammered finish that is sure to turn heads at your wedding and beyond.
