Need Help Finding a Matching Wedding Band?

There are many ways men can match their wedding band to their partner’s wedding band. While traditionally, couples would choose the same metal and design theme, recently, many couples are choosing complementary as opposed to exactly matching styles.


Men's Wedding Band Engraving

A time-honored tradition, adding engravings to the inside of the men’s wedding band is a sentimental way to add a personal touch to the ring. Engravings can include quotes, initials, or even dates that hold sentimental value to the couple. With the possibility to personalize individual touches, engraving transforms a ring into a one-of-a-kind piece.

Custom Men's Wedding Bands

How do you choose a men's wedding band style?

When choosing a men’s wedding band, the metal should be considered not only for style preference but also for the durability required. Even at the highest quality, there is a spectrum of durability across popular metal styles for men’s wedding rings, and refurbishing may be needed in cases of extensive wear and tear.

While classic metal bands will always be a popular choice among men’s wedding band styles, thicker bands, bolder styles with gemstone or diamond accents, and interesting textures are becoming more mainstream.

Who buys the man's wedding band?

Historically, the groom purchases his wedding band, but as wedding band and engagement ring purchases become increasingly more of a joint decision process, couples may make the purchase together. We encourage couples to define their own rules and choose the ring that reflects their style and relationship most authentically.

How much are men's wedding bands?

Brilliant Earth’s men’s wedding bands range from ~$390 to ~3,290. Custom bands start at $2,000.

How should a men's wedding band fit?
