15 Wedding Rings That Express a Groom's Style

Help your groom pick out the ring he'll wear forever by browsing through these examples.

Much attention is paid to the glamour and drama of the engagement ring, and it’s easy to understand why. A stunning diamond or gemstone is awfully hard to compete with, but wedding bands are just as important. Though brides typically select a band that complements their engagement ring, grooms have free reign over a design choice. For many men who otherwise don’t wear jewelry, the selection process can be daunting. Those who work with their hands may prioritize something unobtrusive over something stylish, but there are many bands that offer the best of both worlds! Other grooms might relish the opportunity to wear something a little flashier, with stones that rival a bride’s jewelry.

No matter what the groom’s taste, there is sure to be a ring that showcases his personality. We’ve gathered together some of our favorite groom’s wedding bands in a variety of styles to help narrow down the possibilities.

Classic
No nonsense, no fuss: a classic men’s ring is a plain band in yellow gold, white gold, or platinum. It has a rounded shape and no additional details, except for maybe an engraving on the inside – seen by no one. This is the low risk option: the ring may not get many compliments, but no one is going to insult it either.

Modern
These rings are similar to classic rings, but with just a touch more substance. Maybe they feature multiple metals, or alternate between a classic and a brushed-matte finish. There’s also the hammered look, offering a hint of detailing without going overboard for a man who values simplicity.

Stones
Who says brides get to have all the fun with jewelry? Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but that doesn’t mean men don’t appreciate some sparkle or color with gemstones in their wedding rings.
