The Guide

Our simple, step-by-step process for finding
and customizing a quality wedding band
you’ll actually want to wear.

Step 1

Pick Your Metal & Color

This is a personal preference, but many customers select to match an everyday accessory such as a watch, an existing ring, or even a belt buckle. Whatever metal you are most drawn to is a great option; all materials are responsibly sourced. A few things to keep in mind when deciding on your metal 

  • Engraving is available on all of our gold bands. Tungsten bands, due to their metal make-up, are not engravable. 
  • Gold Karat the number tells you the purity of gold. The higher the number the more durable and vibrant color. Though these changes are very slight, that’s why prices change as you toggle between karats. 
  • Platinum is a heavier metal. This isn’t too drastic but noticeable when compared to a gold band.  

Step 2

 Style Choice

Now that you know the metal, you can browse and decide on the shape, finish, and any additional designs. The style is a personal preference, and many options can be combined (e.g., classic milgrain) to make your perfect ring. Here is a brief breakdown of some terms:

  • Classic vs.. flat: Classic is a traditional choice. It’s smooth all the way around and curves to fit your finger seamlessly. The flat shape has an edgier, more modern look and feel with a clear-cut edge and no-dome profile. 
  • Polish vs. matte: polish is a shinier finish and is the most common for wedding bands. Matte is more of a shimmer than a shine and will hide scratches more.
  • Milgrain: offered in both classic and flat shapes. It adds a unique beaded edge detail for a unique look. 
  • Diamond: different bands offer different diamond shapes and sizes. Wider bands have larger diamonds.

Step 3

Pick Your Width

We offer bands in an assortment of widths, from  1.5m - 6mm,  to accommodate your preferences. Whether you want a slimmer, less noticeable band or a wider, statement-like band, we got you covered.

Step 4


Width refers to the actual wideness of the band. The Bride's Classic widths are 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5mm respectively. The Groom's widths range from 3.0-6.0mm.

If you aren't sure, the easiest way to try out a few different widths is with the Marke Home Try-On Kit.


Step 5


Matte or Polish?

Matte finished bands are only available online for the Groom's Collection. If you'd like to matte finish a Bride's band, shoot us an email and we'll see what we can do. Think of this like the paint job on a car. Most have a shiny, polished finish. But some have matte paint jobs. Matte will take out the shine and work harder to hide scratches.

Step 6


Don't know your finger size? All Home Try-On Kits come with samples bands that are engraved with their finger sizes. They also all fit true to size, so you can feel comfortable ordering a Bride band in the same size as your engagement ring.

Quick tips:

1.  If you're in between on sizes, size up.  You're always better off slightly big than too small when it comes to wedding bands.

2. Measure your fingers at the end of the day, when they're at their largest.

3. Cold weather can shrink your fingers up to 1/2 size, so make sure they're warm and fuzzy.

Step 7


This is your chance to add something to the inside of the band that only you and your partner will know about. Some add a wedding date, name, or a message. Others just have fun with it. Up to you.

Step 8


It will take 5-7 days to craft and ship your band. We recommend ordering the band at least a month before the wedding, just for peace of mind.
