Guys, it’s time to make some fashion statements of your own! (After all, you need to keep up with your fiancé, right?). In today’s blog post, we check out some of the most unique men’s wedding bands in the market.
Chris Ploof is an award-winning artisan who pioneered the use of contemporary metals in luxury jewelry. Some of his specialty designs involve the use of mokume gane, Damascus stainless steel and Gibeon meteorite materials to create stunning pieces of jewelry.
Mokume Gane is a traditional technique employed by ancient Japanese craftsman to fuse different layers of metal together. In this process, different colored metals can be combined and manipulated to create captivating visual patterns.
Here are some of the most intriguing nature inspired designs I constantly find myself looking over and over again. It’s really fascinating and I could easily spend hours staring into the ring. (I’m pretty sure you will too!)

Due to the intrinsic colors of the base metals used, the final appearance of the ring would take on the colors of the combined metals. My personal favorite wedding ring from this series is the Oak design which is made from a mixture of yellow gold and rose gold.
If you don’t already know, white gold and platinum are typical metals used in wedding jewelry. However, they can also be very costly. For guys with a lower budget to work with, I have good news for you.
Damascus steel bands are great alternatives to consider because they are very affordable due to their lower material costs. More importantly, Damascus steel bands can be crafted with complex patterns and made into eye-catching pieces.

The Gibeon meteorite is a type of material that is renowned for its impressive Widmanstatten lines. One cool feature of rings made from Gibeon meteorite is that each ring has its own unique patterning and is a “one of a kind piece of art”.

Selecting wedding bands is a very special part of the engagement process.
Personally, I think the symbolism of the rings are more important than the caterers, decorations, or venue. The wedding band will last you forever and are a constant reminder of your dedication to your relationship.
If possible, I recommend setting aside time to perform ring shopping with your loved one. It’s always good to make important decisions like these together and a fun way to spend bonding time.
So, there you have it.

I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts/preferences on materials for male wedding bands? I’ve looked at plenty of different options like gold, platinum, chrome, ceramic and also did my research on the pros and cons but still can’t decide. I’m still looking around at designs as well and haven’t settled on any yet. Any tips on where to browse?
It’s really a matter of personal preference. Gold and platinum are the most commonly used metals in fine jewelry and there are plenty of jewelers who can work on them if you require repairs and stuff. They are also more expensive because of the precious metals used.

I personally used to own stainless steel rings (surgical grade) and like them for their affordability and toughness. But at the end of the day, start with your budget and then look at the available designs available for each type of metals and that should help you make a decision.
And when it comes to finding wedding band design ideas for men, Blue Nile and James Allen are good places to start because of their wide selections available.
I’m looking for designer men’s wedding bands and the ones from Brian Gavin doesn’t appeal to me. Where else would you recommend shopping at?
You may want to check James Allen out. They would with a couple of well known companies for men’s wedding band designs like Benchmark and Triton. Here are a couple of neat looking settings I like:
Blue Nile may also be worth checking out even though their designer selections are small. They do have lots of interesting in-house designs for contemporary men’s wedding bands. You might find something out of their 200+ selection choices.
