Take a Second Look at Men's Wedding Bands

With styles from simple to exotic, it's time to give these rings the attention they deserve.


Of course, you can't go wrong with the basics.

Let's start with traditional metals:
  • Always-classic yellow gold comes in 18K, 14K or 10K for rings
  • The clean look of white is available in white gold, platinum or palladium
  • Romantic, distinctive rose gold deserves a look, too

And think about ring shapes, from rounded (more traditional) to wide and flat (more modern). Whatever you choose, remember: no rule says that your two rings have to match!


Try an alternative approach.

Non-traditional metals suit some guys extremely well. So it's nice to know they're strong, lightweight and durable.

Consider:
  • Stainless steel
  • Titanium in gray and black, from matte to high-gloss (but its high strength means it can't be resized)
  • Tungsten carbide in black, white or gray (like titanium, it also can't be resized)
  • Cobalt alloys in natural white looks and feels similar to white gold, but often costs less.

Suit your fancy.

Talking fancy finishes here. Opt for high-gloss, or a range from matte to satin to frost - your jeweler can show you examples of each to try on.

Think about other touches too, like milgrain, which is a band with a tiny row of beads added to the edges. Engraving on the outer band can add a unique touch. And mixing metals or colors, like yellow gold accenting a cobalt alloy ring, or two colors of gold, can make for a smashing - and unique - wedding band.


Love diamonds? So does he!

Diamonds are increasingly popular on men's wedding bands. There are plenty of options that includes diamonds, including choices with a single center diamond, a center row of diamonds or even a stylish pave look.

Your wedding band is a symbol, but it's also jewelry that you'll wear for a long time. So look around. Try things on. The right ring is out there - just like your partner was!
