Mens Wedding Rings With Diamond

Ways to Pick the Perfect Wedding Ring

Our ultimate ring buying guide will help you choose a wedding ring you love.

Silver and gold engagement rings and engraved bands

You’ve got the engagement ring (after dropping a few hints of course), now it’s time to pick out the perfect wedding ring to go along with it—and we’ve got all the help you’ll need. Before saying “I do” to the perfect wedding ring, check out our guide on every important factor to consider.

1. Narrow Down Your Wedding Ring Choices

Diamonds or gemstones, platinum or gold—narrowing down your ring options may seem overwhelming, but don’t panic. Just take it one step at a time. Start with style: Are you envisioning a simple band or one with embellishments? Do you want your wedding ring to be the same metal as your engagement ring? Do you think you and your partner’s rings should match? Work out these kind of questions beforehand so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for, then start shopping around.READ MOREExclusive: The New Disney x Baublebar Jewelry Collab

2. Consider Buying Your Ring and Your Bands Together

If you prefer to be surprised by the engagement ring, this may not work, but knowing what bands go with the engagement ring can help you make a decision. For example, if you have a unique engagement ring, you may want a simple, no-fuss band, whereas a simple engagement ring may call for the added sparkle of a diamond pavé band. Also think about how the rings fit together. If you’re planning on wearing your engagement and wedding ring side by side, 24/7, look for a contour or shadow band designed to interlock with the matching engagement ring. If you’re planning on wearing your wedding ring alone, you may want a more intricate style that will look great with or without your engagement ring. Talk to your jeweler about finding a band that works with your ring (some can even create both at the same time).Book your appointment with Lovely Bride now!SPONSORED BY LOVELY BRIDE

3. Start Your Ring Search Early

Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you’d like, it’s time for the fun part: trying them on! Give yourselves at least two to three months before the wedding date to ring shop. You’ll need this time to browse, research prices and revisit rings that catch your eye. If you have your heart set on a custom ring, you’ll probably need even more time. And keep in mind: Extras, like engraving, can take up to one month.

4. Mix It Up

Don’t fret if you like platinum and your partner likes yellow gold. There’s no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style. You could compromise with braided bands that blend the two metals together or just be totally different—the key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles.

5. Set a Budget

Shop with the assumption that you’ll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Depending on the retailer, a plain, 14-karat gold or simple platinum band can cost around $1,000. Embellishments, like diamonds or engraving, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your budget if you plan to personalize your rings with any of these extras. The price of engraving is usually based on the number of characters, the font used and whether it’s engraved by hand or machine (hand is usually pricier).

6. Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind

Remember: You’re going to wear this band every day, so the goal is to choose something that seamlessly becomes a part of your life. If you play sports or an instrument, a slimmer ring with rounded edges (appropriately called the “comfort fit”) may make the most sense. If you work with your hands, you may want to search for a simple, solid metal ring and avoid gemstones that can come loose or carvings, which can trap dirt. If you’re super active, go for platinum, which is extra durable (when scratched, the metal is merely displaced and doesn’t actually wear away).

7. Try Something Different

You may love the idea of a braided rose gold ring or a diamond eternity band, but once you get to the store, try some rings that aren’t on your inspiration board. Chat with the jeweler, then let them make suggestions based on what you like and don’t rule anything out. Just like with wedding dresses, you may end up loving something you never thought you would. Wear it around the store for a few minutes and while you have it on, try writing and texting as a comfort test.

8. Think Long Term

While you shouldn’t be afraid of being trendy, make sure the style you choose is something you’ll want to wear for, say, the next 40 years. Just don’t stress too much: You’re not married to the ring and can always make changes to it (add diamonds or go from white gold to platinum) later on to mark a special anniversary.

9. Consider the Maintenance

To keep a wedding band with stones clean and sparkling, you’ll need to wash and soak it in warm sudsy water, then gently brush it with a soft toothbrush or eyebrow brush (too much pressure can loosen the stones from their setting), rinse it and pat it dry with a soft lint-free cloth. Sound like too much upkeep? You may want to opt for a fuss-free gold or platinum ring—simply rub it with a soft, lint-free cloth (chamois works well) and you’re good to go.

10. Size It Right

Most people rarely take off their wedding bands; they wear them through summers, winters, exercise, pregnancies—all times when your fingers swell and contract from heat, cold, water retention or weight gain. To find the right size that will best weather all of those changes, schedule your final ring fitting at a time when you’re calm and your body temperature is normal. That means you should never finalize first thing in the morning (you retain water from the night before), right after you’ve exercised (fingers swell) or when you’re extremely hot or cold (which can cause your hands to expand and shrink).

11. Check for Quality

Quality control applies to all rings, not just your wedding bands. Make sure the ring has two marks inside the band: the manufacturer’s trademark (this proves they stand behind their work) and the quality mark, 24K or PLAT, for example (this proves the metal quality is what the retailer says it is).

Best Rings for Men in 2021

While it’s almost a given that a guy has to wear a stack of bracelets on one wrist or another these days, now that we’ve all gotten used to wearing more (and more) jewelry, the stacking phenomenon is now moving up onto our fingers. Grab a couple of rings of varying widths, and fill up as many fingers as your keyboard can handle. Simple rings that might otherwise be interpreted as wedding bands lend themselves to this trend, but avoid wearing them on your left ring finger if you’re putting yourself out in the dating pool.

While chunky rings are in, the rock-and-roll die-hard rings of the 1990s are being reinterpreted; now as likely to be in gold as silver, and eschewing the hardcore motorcycle aesthetic. If that’s too much for you, the classic signet ring is making a comeback: It’s a perfect prototypical statement to pair with a wedding band; often making a connection to one’s school or heritage. Since we seem to be living in uncertain times, it’s also a natural that jewelry connected to cryptic beliefs like horoscopes would be making an appearance. Of course like so many things, non-gender-specific styles are extremely popular, so don’t be surprised if the women in your life start raiding your jewelry tray, and vice-versa. Here are a few of our selections for men’s rings that are as great for giving as they are for getting. 

Kay Jewelers Black Silicone Men’s Wedding Band

For the active man, about the only thing better than wearing a silicone ring is not wearing one at all (which may not be an option in some relationships), or going for a tattoo to prove your love. It’s much more comfortable than a traditional ring when lifting weights, and you don’t have to worry about losing it in the locker room (even if you do, at forty bucks it’s not so hard to replace). It’s also much safer for guys in “heavy lifting” kinds of careers where getting a ring off in a hurry after an injury could mean the difference between keeping and losing a finger.

The Monotype Knuckle Ring/Touch Tool 

Bringing a bit of practicality to the accessories world, wear this as a piece of contemporary jewelry: it’s a modern take on brass knuckles, but the only thing you’ll be knocking out is germs. Swing the ring out to use as a touch tool when facing something that may seem particularly yucky; i.e., buttons on an ATM or gas pump. While copper and copper alloys are antimicrobial, don’t necessarily rely on a tool like this to protect you from germs; i.e., coronavirus, because, inevitably, the point you use to touch the object will still end up touching your skin. At least it looks cool!

Legacy for Men by Simone I. Smith Textured Ring

This stainless steel ring adds some sleek style to your fingers without watching a lot of cash flow through them. A steel ring is a great option if your job or interests are active enough that you know your jewelry will take some abuse, yet this design still looks cool enough to wear casually or dressed up. 

$75 FROM MACY’S

Martine Ali Anchor Silver Chain Ring

Like a bracelet for your finger, this ring is inspired by industrial equipment for a look that is chunky and masculine. It’s a great piece to pair with a similar bracelet (don’t be too “matchy-matchy”) or to stack with solid rings. 

$125 FROM MR PORTER

Zales Enchanted Disney Snake Scales Ring

Whether you’re an Enchanted Kingdom super-fan, a herpetologist (a zoologist who studies reptiles and amphibians), or snakeskin is a symbol of your individuality; this diamond snake ring is inspired by Disney’s Aladdin bad guy Jafar in his cobra incarnation. It’s sterling silver with black rhodium plate with some (small) diamonds. Unfortunately it’s only available in lucky size 10, but can easily be resized. 

$237 FROM ZALES

Alexander McQueen Skull Stack Ring

Stacking rings with the appeal of a puzzle, a bad-assed design theme, and haute couture allure are all combined in this Alexander McQueen skull ring. McQueen was the British fashion designer particularly renown for his work for the house of Givenchy; as well as the subject of one of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s most visited exhibitions ever. The three bands are made in Italy of plated brass.

Ōura Heritage Smart Ring

Smart watches? Why bother. Do some deep biohacking with this electronic wonder that tracks your heart rate, body temperature, and more; helping build good sleep and activity habits. The ring communicates with an app on your smartphone to provide data and insights. The battery lasts around a week, and you can wear it pretty much all the time; even in the shower or when swimming. Oh, and hey, it looks pretty great, too! 

$399 FROM OURA

Title Of Work Mixed Metal Ring 053

Designer Jonathan Meizler brings a sense of the unexpected to all his work. This ring mixes 18K gold with an open-ended sterling band. It’s oxidized for a dark finish that lightens up and builds a patina as you wear it, making it truly your own. All title of work rings are made in the brand’s New York City Lower East Side atelier. 

$775 FROM TITLE OF WORK

Tracee Nichols Oxidized Sterling Silver Roman Signet Ring

If your family doesn’t have a signet of its own, Tracee Nichols’ Roman Soldier signifies courage, strength, and power. In oxidized sterling silver with black diamonds, the ring features the silhouette of a proud centurion, making a statement that is both modern — with a rock-and-roll, denim and leather sort of aesthetic — and antique — perfect when paired with a three-piece suit or a tuxedo. 

$950 FROM TRACEE NICHOLS

Reinstein Ross Half Round Band

While in some ways this minimalistic ring is completely traditional, its soft, apricot gold finish is anything but. It’s a great ring to stack and pair with other styles, yet is powerful enough to wear on its own as a wedding band or as a colorful mix with other rings. 

$1,650 FROM REINSTEIN ROSS GOLDSMITH

Eva Fehren The Hero Signet Ring

In 18 karat palladium white gold, this simple, yet bold design is part of Eva Fehren’s XX/XY collection. She compares it to slipping on her husband’s denim jacket, but we couldn’t help but notice that the shape is reminiscent of Superman’s “shield” logo. 

$3,250 FROM EVA FEHREN

Foundræ Earth Wide Band

While this collection includes rings for the elements of fire, water, and air; since we’re heading into Capricorn territory, we highlighted this one for earth; reflecting stability, loyalty, the ability to manifest, to create; as well as nesting and grounding. (It’s also appropriate for those born under Taurus and Virgo.) The ring’s Masonic-like motifs are elegant while mysterious. While shopping on the site, be sure to check out Foundrae’s All Rise medallion: the sale raises funds for racial and gender equity, and celebs like Noah Centineo and Michael Ealy are already fans. 

$3,995 FROM FOUNDRAE

David Yurman Petrvs Horse Signet Ring

In an ultimate combination of old and new, David Yurman presents a classic signet ring in the brand’s signature clean, modern style, subtly accented with an equine motif carved from precious lapis lazuli. The ring is inspired by ancient artifacts, yet has a distinctively 21st-century feel. The ultimate in elegance, this ring looks as at home with a three-piece pinstripe suit as it does with a pair of broken-in Levi’s and a white t-shirt.
