It’s time to go shopping for the groom’s ring. This signature item of jewelry will be the most important piece in his collection. For many guys like me, it’s the only jewelry in their collection. The wedding is a great time to introduce your man to the world of jewelry because as well as the ring, you might need cufflinks, a chain and earrings. But for now, let’s focus on the wedding band.
The options for men’s wedding rings used to be incredibly slim. Today we have options with materials like titanium, silver, gold, metal and even wood. The finish can be brushed, smooth or two-toned and the designs range from low-key and modern to fancy and flashy.
Here are some rings I think are stylish, modern, and ideal for a groom with some fashion-forward vibes going on:
At Manly Bands there are collections to suit every taste. This cool company recently hit the headlines when they got The Bachelor and Bachelorette host Chris Harrison onboard to design his own classy collection of rings. It really was a great idea to get Chris to lend his creative mind to the fashion jewelry industry and we wonder if Neil Lane gave him any pointers.
I love the whole collection, but especially the colorful ones like The Symmetry and The Cali. They are funky rings and come with free engraving so you can have a message like your names, scripture, or your wedding date inscribed inside. The ring names are pretty unique too like the one called The Host.
The other collections are equally as epic. There is something for every man. If you are a groom who likes to wear something unique and eye-catching you might be drawn to The Angler ring in the Adventurer Collection. It is made from Tungsten, Koa wood and Abalone shell.
If you’re like me and a subtle look is more your style, you could be wearing a wedding ring from the Classic Collection or the latest Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrel Collection. There are so many great designs when it comes to wedding rings for men – you might need to buy two. I’ve been considering adding more rings to my collection for different occasions and wardrobe looks.
The wedding band, with no beginning or end, symbolizes eternal love. For most countries it is tradition to wear the wedding ring on the fourth finger of the left hand. But some, including Russia and Greece, go for the other hand. These days many couples are letting go of old traditions and choosing to do things their way. So really, it’s up to you which hand you wear your bling on.
Wedding rings and bands are fashion statements, symbols of love and a nod to tradition if you wish to hold onto the sentimental notion. We are excited to see so many gorgeous rings for grooms on the market today. We hope you are inspired to go shopping for your ring after reading about all the fantastic options out there!
Definitely check out Manly Bands for some wedding rings or insipiration.
