Unique Men’s Wedding Bands

Personal style is a difficult thing to define, but we know it when we see it. Every detail of your big day will reflect your essence as a couple, and your rings are no exception. While your wedding will be a day that lasts forever in your memories, your rings are the symbols of your love and commitment that you will wear every day of your life.


That’s why picking out the perfect wedding band is one of the most important decisions that a man will make in planning his wedding. Women’s wedding bands come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles, but men’s choices in bands have traditionally been quite limited (Would you like “gold” or “white gold”?). Just like the two-button black suit isn’t for every man, a simple wedding band is sometimes just not enough.


Your wedding band must be comfortable and durable, but it should also be suited to your personal style, whether that is classic, artistic, bold, sporty, modern, or perhaps something undefinable. Unique designs and rings with accents have become sought after choices for men’s wedding bands. Ready to explore ways to make your ring reflect the real you? Here are six ways (that might surprise you) to make your wedding band uniquely yours.


Six Surprising Ways to Add Flair to the Traditional


A matte finish provides a sleek, modern look, while a hammered finish can add interesting and eye-catching texture. Whether you intend to make a big splash or a quiet statement, an unconventional finish may be the ideal way to accomplish the look you have in mind.

Diamonds and Sapphires
A flash of color or sparkle, such as a very thin row of diamonds or sapphires, could be just the subtle element for a man who likes to stand out in a crowd. And, diamonds and sapphires are the most durable gemstones, making them well-suited for the active man.

Unique Details
For those aching for something beyond the same old, same old, elaborate ring details such as an antique scroll design, braiding, or Celtic knots can provide the unconventional styling you crave. Though many men choose an antique scroll or Celtic design element to match their bride-to-be’s wedding ring, it is equally acceptable to select men’s and women’s wedding rings without a common design element.

Rose Gold
The soft warm hue of rose gold offers a distinctive twist on a classic style, perfect for the man seeking a vintage feel.  For a more modern look, consider a rose gold ring with a matte finish, or paired with diamond accents.  The warmer tones and overall depth make it a flattering match with a variety of skin tones.

Custom Design
A custom designed wedding band is the ultimate reflection of your individuality. Beautiful ornate antique designs, a floral- or nature-inspired motif, an elaborate pattern, dual-tone precious metals, or special symbols that honor your heritage are just a few ideas. Challenge our jewelry design experts with your own idea. If you can dream it, we can bring your unique vision to life and custom design a truly one-of-a-kind wedding band.

Personalized Message
The special details of your love story—the lyrics of “your” song, the date you met, a special saying, your new monogram, or even a fingerprint—these are the deeply personal and inherently unique building blocks of your relationship. What could be more romantic than engraving your wedding bands with a private special reminder of your love?

I am trying to find a band for my husband. This will be our 16th anniversary. His present band will not go over his knuckle but would be fine over the knuckle. We have two sons who diagnosed with Autism and wanted to maybe put an autism puzzle piece on the band and maybe a finger print of each of my sons. Would that be an impossible option?
Thank you,
