Benchmark is respected across the jewelry industry for their commitment to both comfort and quality, and that comes through in every wedding band they design. Benchmark was the first brand to design comfort-fit rings, which is the term for a special curvature of the inner surface of the band that makes them fit more gently against the base of a finger. From this strong foundation, Benchmark has gone on to design men’s wedding bands that we here at Guven Brothers Fine Jewelry really adore.
But our customers occasionally ask what else sets Benchmark apart, and if you haven’t seen one of their pieces in person, that question might be reasonable. But here at Guven Brothers Fine Jewelry, our experience with Benchmark allows us to give you special insight into this distinctive brand!
What you may not know about a Benchmark men’s wedding band is that they predominantly work in two-metal styles. This can range from rose gold on white; white gold on yellow; and so on. This contrast in colors draws attention to the remarkable textures and designs that Benchmark works into its pieces. Two-tone gold patterns aren’t the only material delight in which Benchmark indulges while crafting their pieces: White and black diamonds are carefully arranged in several of their bands, favoring the channel wedding band model or burnishing, which gives those pieces a flash of lofty grace that doesn’t interfere with the work a man does with his hands.
We touched on the Benchmark style, and that comes through primarily in their embrace of nature. When you look through the Guven Brothers Fine Jewelry collection of Benchmark men’s bands, you’ll see rings made to resemble weathered stone, tree bark, imprinted leaves, strips of iron, and so on. These details, sculpted in gold, add an earthy, masculine sophistication to the wedding band. Even those bands that embrace abstraction are no less eye-catching: Benchmark pairs radically different finishes to create contrast. For instance, one can see oxidized, hammered yellow gold sitting atop a frame of polished white gold. Even subtle contrasts, such as brushed gold against satin-finish metal have a surprising “pop” in the hands of the Benchmark experts.
Benchmark & Comfort Fit
A man wearing a wedding band needs to have freedom of motion in his hands. This can be a crucial thing for a guy who works with his hands, since traditional wedding bands can dig into his skin. Fortunately, Benchmark ensures that all its bands are designed around their comfort-fit model. The heavier profile of a comfort-fit band is another “plus” in the masculinity column, and the engineered curves mean that these wedding bands sit comfortably against the base of a man’s finger.
