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.

MATT FINISH
A matt finish is a soft non-shiny finish with a slight texture to it. Alloys tend to look a little darker with this finish as it diffuses the light rather than reflecting it.  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.
