There are lots of fun and creative options for men’s wedding bands. While men’s white gold wedding bands may be the most popular, it’s always fun to stray from the norm and choose a unique wedding ring for him. Here’s an introduction to a few of the different styles of men’s wedding bands.
These options are trendy because they allow for a lot of customization through metal and gemstone combinations. They also allow the groom to control the level of flashiness or understatement he wants. So, here’s a curated selection of possibilities for men’s wedding bands.
This is a small variation of plain metal men’s wedding bands. These rings have a satin or brushed finish on the central part of the ring, and the finish is polished towards the sloped edges. This two-finish appearance gives the ring a nice contrast without having two different colors of metals. This is a great option if you’re looking for a subtle update from just a plain band.
Classic and distinctive, rose gold complements most skin tones and gives off an especially warm aura. It’s also a great choice for a groom who likes an alternative men’s wedding band. Rose gold changes shades based on the percentage of copper in the alloy. This allows you to find just the right hue you like!
A small detail goes a long way. Mixed metals allow for some personalization. You can even find rings that combine two different finishes in addition to the different metal colors. Whoever said men don’t have options to show off their style?
Texture and Facets
One metal or two, adding some texture to your wedding band can give a great feel to your ring. There are many finishes available. A satin finish is smooth to the touch, but matte in appearance.
Brushed finish is grainier than a satin finish, while hammered is the most rugged and textured one. Hammered finish men’s wedding bands are a good option for grooms that aren’t particularly gentle to their rings.
A faceted ring also provides interesting texture and relief. Facets draw attention and make the ring shine differently as you move your hand.
Low-Dome vs. Flat Bands
Low-Dome bands are curved in a subtle way on the outside of the band. The inner surface is still flat, which provides a comfortable fit and is great for long-term wear. Flat bands are the opposite of low-domed rings, they are polished and completely flat on the outer and inner surfaces. They make a great band for showing off any gemstones that are set on the ring.
Diamonds & Gemstones
Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, and therefore a excellent choice for wedding bands. Sapphires and rubies are also great options as far as hardness and durability are concerned. On top of their functionality and sturdiness, the beauty and strength of these gemstones symbolize the eternal love and commitment that builds your marriage.
