HIGH POLISHED FINISH
Polish finished rings are the most common finish on rings and jewellery. This type of finish is very shiny and reflective. The mirror-like finish will wear to a natural worn finish as it picks up scratches over time. This dulls to a semi-polished look which can easily be re-finished with ease.
Satin finished rings are smooth to the touch like like polished finish rings. However, it diffuses light rather than reflecting it, producing a more subdued appearance. This type of finish is best for those who like the smoothness of a polished finish ring, but do not want the shininess of that finish.
A brushed finish is similar to a satin finish. Both, the satin finish and the brush finish are not shiny. The difference is that a brushed finish has a texture to it. You can see tiny brush-like marks on the finish. This type of finish is very popular on men's bands as scratches will not be as visible on the ring's surface as it's worn.
