  1. Tungsten Wedding Bands

    What we wear is an outward expression of our inner selves. Jewelry has a unique ability to reflect our mood and the way we want to be perceived by those around us. Mens wedding bands are no exception. A man’s style and desired image are on display when he extends his ringed hand for a firm shake or waves at someone on the street. The man and the metal he chooses often have a lot in common. Let’s dive into this intimate relationship, what the metal says about the man, and why Tungsten is a great option to consider.

    Tungsten Wedding Bands

    Tungsten is known as the “heavy stone” metal. Like the metal itself, the man who chooses a ring made from Tungsten hosts a robust character. He is a hands on kind of guy, necessitating a ring that can stand up to some scrapes along the way. The tungsten man is not easily rubbed the wrong way and is often described as the strong, silent type. However, his patience has a breaking point. Like the metal of his choice, he can crack under pressure if the right type of blow is dealt. Overall, a tungsten band is bold, reliable, and strong.

    Things to Consider The Picking Out His Wedding Band

    Up until now, it's been all about the engagement ring and proposal. Now that she said yes and has the perfect engagement ring, it's time to focus on finding the perfect wedding band for you. For every type of man out there, there is a wedding band option to match.

    Express your style. More so if you are a man who doesn't typically enjoy jewelry, your wedding band is a chance to really express your style. Diamonds, colored gemstones, textures and mixed metals help achieve a one-of-a-kind look with a nod to your personal look. The options might surprise you!

    Consider your lifestyle. Gold rings can show minor scratches over time. (Don't worry-- a trip to visit our experts at Gold and Diamond Source can take care of all signs of wear!) If you are active or work with your hands, you might want to consider a durable metal or getting a second band when you want to leave your beloved ring at home. Titanium is extremely durable, hypoallergenic and lightweight. It is a great choice for individuals who prefer a much lighter material.

    Think about coordinating. You can't help it if opposites attract, but you do have a say when it comes to your wedding rings! Discuss with your partner if you'd like to work with a matching look or something totally different. You can both choose bands that represent your own styles. Find a middle ground with the same metal (such as rose gold) and then put your own twist on the final designs with textures, gemstones and more!

  3. How to Choose a Wedding Band for Your Wedding

    This beautiful 8mm comfort-fit etched channel set diamond eternity band features a satin-finish and a polished horizontal center trim between rows of three round cut diamonds.

    Congrats! You’ve found the perfect diamond ring for your partner and you’ve popped the big question. But now, it’s time to find the perfect wedding band for you (and you thought proposing was the hard part)!

    While some men love jewelry and everything that comes with it, some grooms-to-be are easily overwhelmed with the limitless options when finding or creating a wedding band that reflects their style and needs.

    There is truly a band for every man. Whether your style is rugged or polished, and if you are a fan of rose gold or technical metals, you are sure to find a ring that truly captures your personal style. Your wedding band will most likely be your most-worn piece of jewelry, and it symbolizes the biggest commitment you will ever make, so we encourage you to take the time to find a ring you will love to wear.

    Five steps to the perfect wedding band:

    Traditional or modern?

    It’s your wedding ring, so the style is entirely up to you. If you want to keep it traditional, choose a simple gold band. If you prefer to choose something a little more unusual, there are plenty of distinctive wedding rings available, such as this striking black titanium band.


    To match, or not to match?

    Some couples like to have matching rings, to symbolize their union in marriage. Others like to choose rings that celebrate their unique personality. Discuss your options with your bride before choosing a ring, to ensure that you’re both in agreement, whatever the decision.


    Think about the finish.

    Some wedding bands are naturally polished, providing a high-shine finish. Others use brushed metal, which dulls the natural shine. Think about your personal style, and what is best suited to it.


    Know your size.

    It’s always a good idea to know your ring size before heading out to make your purchase. If you’re unsure, it’s likely that the jewelry store will be able to measure your finger for you.


    Think about practicality.

    You’ll be wearing this ring every day, so you’ll want to make sure that it can withstand the rigors of your lifestyle. If you work a lot with your hands, you might want to consider choosing a material that is scratch-resistant.


    Work with an expert to find your perfect wedding band.

    If you’re on the fence with finding the perfect ring, our team of experts at Gold and Diamond source are happy to show you options that will fit your style and lifestyle. Visit us at our Clearwater showroom to experience a large variety of men's wedding bands.

  4. What Is An Eternity Band?

    As never-ending as your love for each other, eternity bands (or eternity rings) feature a never-ending circle of diamonds or other gemstones around the entire ring. They symbolize never-ending love and truly sparkle from every angle. They features double the diamonds of their half eternity ring cousins, which have diamonds going only halfway around the band.

    When to choose an eternity band

    Eternity rings are often gifted to celebrate anniversaries or big milestones, such as the birth of a child, but many couples also choose an eternity band as their wedding band for a dazzling, bold look. We love eternity bands as a lone statement piece, paired with an engagement ring, or the star of a dazzling ring stack. However you style it, diamond eternity bands are a must-have.

    Eternity rings come with varying stone shapes like round cut diamonds, princess cut diamonds, emerald cut diamonds, and more.

    Can eternity bands be resized?

    Due to their design, eternity bands cannot be re-sized. Featuring a complete circle of diamonds, adding or taking away stones from the band may not guarantee that the ring will fit perfectly and can ruin the perfect circle of diamonds. Because of this, we recommend coming into the showroom to view our selection and find your perfect ring in person.

    "My fiance (now husband) and I have nothing but good things to say about G&D Source. We came here first when looking for engagement rings. The staff was very attentive without being too pushy, and it just so happens we came here during one of their big coupon sales! So we got my engagement ring for much less $$ than we would have at a different time. The ring was a bargain while still being an excellent quality diamond and a beautiful, uniquely designed band. Tyler was such a great sales associate he was really helpful. The kicker is that unfortunately my ring was stolen months later! I reported it, it wasn't found, so we went in to buy a replacement ring. Tyler again was very helpful, and we were able to get a similar quality ring for about the same price as before (meaning they took off quite a bit from the retail price to help us out). Then magically months later my ring was found! So now I have two engagement rings. And Gold and Diamond Source was very quick to help identify and confirm the found ring as my original engagement ring. When I needed my wedding band sized in time for my wedding even though they weren't able to size it in time, they let me borrow a ring guard/band at no charge. For a small, family owned chain this place has a fairly large and good quality selection, and from my experience, great sales staff to help you find what you're looking for. In all, this store is much better quality and selection than pawn shops, retail stores you'd find in malls, and I believe a genuine good compromise of bang for your buck. Highly recommend." — Sara D. on Yelp

  5. Our Favorite Channel Set Wedding Bands

    Channel set wedding bands are a popular choice for brides looking for a bold look. A channel design features accent diamonds inset into a groove, usually following the curve of the ring band. These stones are held in place by the pressure of the sides of the ring, much like a rail. Channel settings tend to create a strong, angular effect while pavé settings, which are held in place by prongs, fall more on the delicate side of the style spectrum. Channel set wedding bands can feature different size or shape diamonds for a totally unique look.
