Wedding Jewelry for Men

Most men wear a traditional band as their choice of wedding jewelry but much has changed in men's jewelry designs to give you and your new husband many unique choices. For centuries men have been give little selection when it comes to their wedding band.  Typically available is the familiar classic white gold; yellow gold; platinum or sterling silver band that can be plain or engraved rings but this has been changing for the past decade or so.

Today men want something a little fancier when it comes to the jewelry they wear on their wedding day and for the rest of their life.  They are looking for choices that are manly yet have some style and reflect their personality too.  Many couples even look for matching styles to further reflect their commitment. Here are a few style for men that are classic yet stylish too.

Style #1: A mix of colors on the traditional styled wedding band. This creates an interesting two-tone effect and many men are selecting white gold mixed with yellow gold or black titanium mixed with icy white platinum. White gold mixed with yellow gold presents a contemporary twist on the classic choice. The latter presents a tuxedo-look which is quite contemporary and unique.

Style #2: Men's wedding bands can come with a little bit of bling! We have seen men sporting around wedding bands that have channel set diamonds or channel set diamonds and gemstones. Most men are conservative with their bling and choose to stay under the 1 carat gemstone weight but there are plenty of options.

Style# 3: Wedding bands that have geometric designs on them are hot this season! You will see men selecting engraved or molded geometric designs on their wedding bands. You can find these types of bands an every variety of metals available.

Many guys have 2 different wedding bands that they opt to wear; one plain band for working or sports and one specialty band for all other times. This makes sense for those guys that work with their hands and play sports in case of damage or loss. But remember, when not in use, make sure that the wedding bands are secured in a fully lined jewelry case or men's valet box so that they are not lost or damaged.
