Engaged couples shopping for men’s wedding bands need not stick to the plain gold or platinum band. While this traditional classic suits many grooms, others prefer a more fashion-forward wedding ring. Here are some of the top wedding band trends for men this season.
While diamonds were once relegated to women’s rings, more men are opting to add a bit of bling to their wedding band. Consider channel set round or square diamonds in white as well as black and champagne.
Textured or Matte Platinum
Platinum is the best-selling metal for both men’s and women’s wedding rings. The rugged groom appreciates the look of a matte finish, which sets the ring apart from the shiny bands of tradition. Edgy men may want to take the matte finish to the next level with a textured or distressed look.
This season, men’s wedding bands go beyond gold and silver to incorporate darker metals. Think black titanium, black zirconium, and oxidized steel for a cutting-edge choice.
While different types of metal are being used for wedding bands, there are choices other than metal, too. The discerning groom can shop for rings made from meteorite, wood, and even fossilized bone.
Custom rings allow couples to wear truly one-of-a-kind mementos of their union. Ideal for men with an artistic side, these wedding bands are built from scratch to exact specifications. Engraving is another way to add personalized appeal to men’s wedding bands.
