Brushed or Matt finish

brushed or matt ring finish yields an equally smooth finish yet with a less shiny look. The brushed finish is obtained by wire brush polishing.

Due to it’s lack of shine, this finish is more often chosen by those looking for a wedding band with an understated look

The matt look is less commonly chosen for engagement rings and women’s wedding rings.


Both finishes for men’s wedding rings tarnish equally with wear. The finish of the wedding ring can be returned to its original state by polishing. Should you get tired of the finish that you initially choose for your wedding ring, it is possible to change it through the lifetime of your ring.

Both polished and brushed finishes can be applied to palladium wedding rings, white and gold wedding bands and platinum wedding rings
