16 Unique Wedding Bands for the Groom

Go beyond the simple plain band for a ring with pizzazz.

Typically, when someone thinks of a groom’s wedding ring, they image a plain band, usually in white or yellow gold – maybe platinum. Many men’s bands from past generations are practically indistinguishable from each other. Recently, there has been an increase in subtle flair for these rings: perhaps a hammered finish, a combination of the matte and polished look, and maybe even mixed metals for the daring.

However, even these styles might not express enough individuality for some people. Engagement rings and even women’s wedding bands are often stunning pieces of jewelry, rife with detail and sparkle. There’s no reason a man can’t enjoy some of those design elements for his own ring! Below are some of our favorite unique men’s rings – from grooms who embrace intricate scrollwork, etchings, diamonds, and other gemstones.

If one design catches your fancy, be sure to click the photo to see more from these real weddings, as you may have more than taste in bands in common! For more ring inspiration, don’t forget to look through our jewelry gallery.
