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!

Comments on 17 wedding bands to blow your dude’s mind (updated!)

  1. The ring I am getting my fiancé is stainless steel and concrete! I figured the manlier it was the more likely he would be to wear it( willingly).

  2. I gave my husband two wedding rings. One is a brushed titanium band with a silver inlay for an everyday ring, which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Titanium-Comfort-Wedding-Beveled-Available/dp/B000U7WPDI/ref=pd_sbs_jw_1/offbeatbride-20. The other one – his ‘dress’ ring – was a variation of the third one listed, which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Tungsten-Carbide-BLACK-Carbon-Fiber/dp/B003AUF57U/ref=pd_sbs_jw_1/offbeatbride-20.

    I can personally attest to the fact that both rings are absolutely GORGEOUS. Both rings I got on Amazon.com, and both were ridiculously cheap for the quality. Some jewelry stores will try to charge hundreds of dollars for tungsten carbide or titanium rings, but purchasing online is truly the way to go, because you’ll get an equally good product for so much less money.

    He really likes both rings, and I like the fact that I was able to incorporate his love of fast cars and airplanes (both of which can contain carbon fiber and/or titanium) in his wedding rings.

  3. As much as I love these options (and perused them in advance of my own wedding), I personally went with meteorite! as fast as carbon fiber may be, did it fall through space for millions of years? ; )

    The guy at the site below even offers discounts if both partners want a ring from him. Ours were a particular highlight of our science-tastic wedding experiment.

    As a wise sage once said, Ain’t nobody bad like the Meteor Man.

    • My husband got a titanium and meteorite ring from Boone Rings, I believe, and happily tells everyone all about it! He is so proud of it! A funny aside: We had the ring boxed up for a bit before the wedding, and when we pulled it out a few weeks before, the meteorite had rusted a little! Luckily, the jeweler told us how to clean it (and offered to send a new one). Now that it gets worn every day, it’s fine.

      • I keep hearing good things about Boone Rings! I hope they know they’re getting good word of mouth referrals.

    • I also got my fiance’s ring from Arizona Skies Meteorite! My guy loves it too and often will stop and look at it and say “dude! My ring is an effing meteorite! A METEORITE!” He’s had it for a year and he’s still entranced by the geekyness of it. LOVE!

      • hi, my fiance also wants a ring from Arizona Skies Meterorite, but i wanted to ask you how well it wears. has it gotten rusty at all or changed color? thanks so much!

  4. Just found out that the reason that solid black tungsten band is such a great deal is because they only have it available in a size 12. 🙁

  5. My husband and I made each other’s rings out of coins using instructions we found on the internet. His is made from a silver half-dollar and mine is made from a quarter. Both coins are from the year of his birth (because by my birth year, the coins had copper in them). The best part (besides that they were really cheap) is they look like a matching set and on the inside the word “Liberty” and the year still remain.

  6. My fiance’s ring has diamonds in it, and I was so happy to learn that he wanted some bling! It’s a wedding ring, it should be fancy-pants.
