GUIDE TO WEDDING BAND FINISHES
Guide To Wedding Band Finishes
Choosing the ring you will wear for a lifetime is no small decision. It is essential to consider all of the options available before making a purchase. The wide variety of wedding band finishes allows one to personalize their ring according to their lifestyle and personal aesthetic. Our team at Rogers Jewelry Co. has put together a guide to wedding band finishes to ensure that your band matches your style.
The polished finish is the most popular wedding band finish. It is sometimes referred to as the “mirror finish” due to its luminous sheen. The shiniest and most reflective of finishes, polished wedding bands are luxurious and fashionable. These rings are eye-catching and classic for those who like to make a statement with their jewelry.
The second most popular finish is the satin finish that appears smooth and soft, like the fabric it is named after. It is slightly less reflective than its polished cohort. This stunning finish is more understated than the polished yet still retains a remarkable luster. The gentle sheen of the satin finish is conservative and elegant for wedding bands.
In comparison to the satin finish, matte finished rings are more opaque with a velvety texture. This finish is muted and subtle yet possesses a lavish air. Rings with a matte finish masks minor scuffs and scratches much easier than the satin or polished finishes. These rings are wonderfully straightforward and refined.
The brushed finish is highly textured and is characterized by tiny brush-like marks; hence the name. This finish is incredibly visually dynamic with a distinctly rugged feel. The small brush-stroke lines on the surface of these rings will aptly hide most scuffs the ring may incur. A wedding band with a brushed finish is great for someone that frequently works with their hands.
The hammered finish is an unconventional and distinctive wedding band. This unique finish is achieved by tapping the surface of the ring with a hammer. This process creates small dimples on the piece's surface, which gives the band a rustic aesthetic. These rings are intriguing and captivating for lovers of the eccentric or who enjoy the texture of the design.
Sandblasted rings are notably textured with a slightly grainy feel and muted shine. This texture hides scratches while also offering something rugged and durable. Coarse to the touch, sandblasted rings are subtle yet stunning with an incredibly unique appearance that looks almost like stone. One of the less common finishes, a sandblasted wedding band will stand out.
