At PriceScope we often speak of women’s diamond engagement rings, constantly leaning towards female jewelry which both our male and female members usually take a liking to. Without taking the spotlight off women’s engagement rings, we would like to shine some light on men’s jewelry specifically men’s wedding rings. This blog post is focused on men’s jewelry specifically men’s wedding rings. Join us as we explore the wide variety of men’s wedding rings found on the market today.
History of Men’s Wedding Rings
Men’s wedding rings were not really considered until the 1940s. Men generally didn’t wear rings, the only jewelry men would often wear were watches. It was only as late as World War II that men would wear rings. Mostly men who would go off to war wore a wedding band to remember and symbolize the love they had for their significant other.
Newlywed men could never go wrong with a classic yellow gold band. As seen on David Beckham and Henry Golding. The greatest advantage of wearing a classic wedding band is that you never have to worry about whether it will go with your outfit. Opting for a classic wedding band with your choice of metal allows you to dress up your jewelry look, whether that be accentuating your everyday look with a watch or a men’s bracelet.

Classic Band With A Modern Twist
An alternative to a classic wedding band could be to opt for a modern twist to the classic look and feel. Kanye West’s wedding ring was flat at the top with a 90-degree angle and a flat side (talk about adding an edge to the classic band). Another option is a mixed-metal band, as seen on Russell Wilson. Russell Wilson opted for a white gold ring with a platinum twist center and yellow gold rim.

Diamond Wedding Ring
We have come to our favorite section of celebrity men’s wedding rings – diamonds, diamonds, diamonds. Whether you’re opting for a classic wedding band with a strip of pavé set diamonds as seen on John Legend or aim to go all out and elevate your overall jewelry look with a stack of diamonds as seen on Tyrese Gibson – you can never go wrong with sparkle. Diamonds are a woman’s and man’s best friend (despite what Marilyn Monroe said in 1949) we’d suggest not to hold back if the budget allows, of course.
I want to design a custom diamond wedding ring. We suggest you first decide on a budget and see how much of that budget you are willing to allocate on carat weight alone. Browse natural and lab-grown diamonds.
