Wedding Bands for Men: Know Your Options

Guys, don't forget, you get a ring, too! Your wedding band can be as simple or elaborate as your personal style dictates. Familiarize yourself with a few options to help decide what kind of wedding band you'll choose.

A quick reminder

Before you shop, make sure you and your bride-to-be are on the same page about whether or not your wedding bands will match.

You may not choose to identically match, but choose to have rings that are within the same style family and share the same design elements. Have a conversation about what might be right for you two and learn more about whether to match

Pedal to the metal

One of the first things to decide is what kind of metal you like. There are two categories to choose from:

Traditional metals

  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Silver

Alternative metals

  • Cobalt
  • Tungsten carbide
  • Stainless steel
  • Titanium

Stamp your style on it

Once you decide on your foundation, you can think about details.


  • Finishes can be different variations of natural, matte, and glossy.
  • Each specific type of metal can take on different natural and enhanced finishes.


  • First and foremost, choose a width that is proportional to your hand. Work with a jeweler if you?re unsure.
  • Thicker bands tend to catch the eye more and make more of a statement.


  • There are a number of wedding band options that feature bold diamonds and other stones.
  • Including a stone is a unique way to stand out and personalize your band.
