Wedding Rings: 4 Wedding Ring Trends for Men

Today's wedding bands for men have come a long way, baby. Hook your one-of-a-kind honey up with one of these 4 wedding ring trends.

Kiss the traditional flat, gold wedding band good-bye, guys. Today, the world of men's wedding rings is all about options. We're talking about more comfortable, hand-friendly bands. And why not? You're going to be wearing it for the rest of your life, so find one you love. Here are today's best trends:

Personal Wedding Rings Are In
The one-size-fits-all wedding band is an antiquated concept. What you do every day -- whether you work in construction, sit at a desk, or go to the gym every morning -- should guide your wedding ring choice. What does this mean for you? If extreme is your middle name, choose platinum over gold (for durability); avoid matte finishes (which show scratches), decorative details (easy to blunt after repeated knocks), and gemstones (which can chip, fall out, or trap dirt); and go ergonomic.

Pinched Skin Is a Thing of the Past
Designers are using ergonomics to make rings more comfortable to wear. Look for interiors that are curved, not flat. Some wedding rings distinguish between the top and bottom of the ring: The bottom is plain and tapered to absorb the brunt of abuse. Its taper also allows a man to always wear that section on the bottom, so that the top part will stay relatively unscathed.

Diamonds Are a Guy's Best Friend?
Diamond wedding rings for men have gone from unusual to totally acceptable. Stylish guys love the subtle sparkle and sophistication they impart. In fact, after watches, diamond wedding bands are one of the leading categories in men's jewelry today (they also coordinate well with diamond-studded timepieces and her diamond-set wedding band).

The best-selling styles are subtle -- involving less than a full carat of diamonds -- and wearable. The stone is usually set to be flush with the surface of the ring to create a totally smooth exterior and to provide good security for the stone. Two popular men's styles incorporate gypsy- and channel-set round or square diamonds (baguettes are not usually used for men's rings). And we're not just talking icy white diamonds, either -- black, champagne, and yellow diamonds are hot gems for men's rings.

Platinum Is White-Hot
Today's couples appreciate the beauty of platinum and want their wedding rings to be of the finest quality. According to wedding ring jewelers, a subdued matte finish is most popular at the moment. This treatment requires maintenance, as scratches can quickly mar a matte finish.

  1. It definitely seems like there are more and more options for men's wedding bands these days. Also, it seems like more and more men are choosing Titanium or Tungsten for their rings, primarily because of the scratch-resistant nature of these materials. Anyway, great article!

  2. My husband chose a Tungsten ring and he loves it! The only issue with the Tungsten is that it can't be sized. When he originally bought it, we had been outside in the heat and his fingers were swollen. So he ended up buying a bigger size than what he really needed. He needed it smaller and they said that he would have to get another one because you can't re-size the Tungsten metal. Thankfully, the jewelry store worked with us to get him another one for free. I'd tell anyone that if they pick out the Tungsten, to make sure they've been in the air conditioning for a while!

  3. You were really ahead of the curve on this BTW. There was a segment about Mengagement rings on Nightline last night.

  4. Awesome and beautiful Rings. I have chosed Tungsten Wedding Rings since I love Tungsten Rings very much.

  5. The designs looks very cool. But my wedding ring was too good. I selected the design in the metal of Tungsten.

  6. This wedding rings are typically unique with clean lines and high quality gemstones. There are many gemstone selections that may not be familiar to a couple. Instead of the traditional peridot or emerald greens, choosing tourmaline, a rare but beautiful green stone could be an option. Sapphires can provide a beautiful deep blue, but tanzanite comes in sparkling shades of blue and purple. By consulting with a jeweler and starting with colors you may like, your jeweler should have some ideas for stones that you may not have been aware of, such as pink diamonds or white topaz.

  16. Thank you for sharing this post. These wedding band trends are very inspiring. Diamond men wedding rings have really become more popular. That subtle sparkle really adds more sophistication to a man. Tungsten is also increasing in popularity because of its great characteristics.

  17. Another popular trend surrounding mens diamond wedding rings are the ‘his and hers’ rings. Because it is now fashionable for men to wear diamonds, you can choose a wedding ring that almost exactly matches her ring. These are called wedding band sets, and will include a masculine and feminine version of the same ring. These are great choices if you’re looking for men’s diamond rings, but either don’t know what to get, want it to be something special between the two of you, or you are worried about the rings either matching or not matching.
