17 wedding bands to blow your dude's mind

Black Tungsten Black Sapphire Men's Band
Black Tungsten Black Sapphire Men's Band

Women's wedding bands come in all shapes, sizes, colors and styles, and a lot of the time men's choices are boiled down to "gold" or "white gold." So, I thought I'd do a roundup to encourage the guys to live it up a little. Here are some of my favorite men's wedding bands with some serious style and funky trends.

For instance, a black tungsten with black sapphires and a brushed finish like that first ring up there. It's sumultaneously edgy, classy, and dramatic without being over the top at all. We're in love.

Psst: These styles would look amazing for women's wedding bands, too. Click on the images or the captions to find out where to buy these rings!

The entire outside of this ring features a hammered finish, and the darkened areas are the result of oxidation of the sterling silver that makes up the body of the ring. It reminds me of a craggy volcano!

  1. I got mine from amazon exactly like the ones in the picture at http://www.carbonfiberweddingbands.net . It's somewhat similar to the 2nd picture in this article. Also loving that full black ring you posted. Is it true that wood inlay cause skin irritation? my fiance loves those wood like designs

  2. My husband doesn't like wearing jewelry too! But I wish I'd seen this when I was looking for matching wedding rings for myself and my man! It's a gold skeleton hand ring by Freedomjewelryusa on Etsy, I've got one in silver and it's extremely comfortable to wear.

    We got thematically-but-not-stylistically matching skull rings in the end, but his, (by amazing Etsy skull jeweller Bakogiorgis), while being the most awesome and detailed (it even has a 3rd molar!) skull ring I've ever seen ..

    is so huge that it spins around on his finger all the time so he doesn't wear it very often. The gold hand ones would have been perfect! Maybe in a few years I'll get it for him as a surprise anniversary present 🙂

  3. The ultimate in awesome wedding bands
    Titanium rings created from the actual mission flown parts of the worlds fastest jet, The SR-71 Blackbird.
    Flown on top secret missions of the highest national priority during the cold war these rings traveled at over 2200 mph at the edge of space.

  4. When I first asked FH for rings ideas, he said he didn't care and that I could just pick a ring for him. After we looked at a few rings, he had a couple of ideas (no yellow gold, no diamonds), but nothing more specific that than. I don't remember exactly when he mentioned the idea of a Legend of Zelda ring, but I was thrilled to have an idea. I found a bunch of different rings on Etsy and showed those rings to him. He picked this one

  5. Great stuff! I have been doing my homework on all the different types of materials and crazy unique bands for guys. I have to agree with a previous comment (I think it was Jay) who said that "you get what you pay for." I am taking this to heart … my future husband will get a top quality ring, just like me 🙂 I'm still doing some looking around as he wants a really different ring. Love the geeky circuit board (he's into tech), but also another unique wedding ring on a list I saw that is so "Game of Thrones," which he also LOVES!!
