UNIQUE MENS WEDDING BANDS

A CURATED LIST OF UNIQUE MEN'S WEDDING BANDS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

On the hunt for a handcrafted and stylish symbol of your eternal love?

Welcome to our huge list of cool men's wedding band ideas. We've burned the midnight oil to research and select a number of rings we think you'll really enjoy.

One massive list to highlight some of the most unique men's wedding rings on the internet, broken down by material type to make it easier to browse.

​We regularly update this list. However, rings can sell out as many are one-of-a-kind creations by artisan jewelry makers. ​

​Sports Enthusiast's Very Own Championship Wedding Ring

by: RenaissanceJewelry

Dear brides: please don't hate ​us too much for suggesting this amazing basketball themed ring design.

​We understand that not everyone enjoys sports -- the Chief Editor of L&L is included in that category! However, chances are your future spouse has a secret or not-so-secret obsession with football, basketball, baseball, or even cricket (yup, that's a real sport too)!

The design of this basketball themed gold wedding band has a classic appeal. Andew could especially see ​himself wearing the basketball ring. Of course, the fact that he's watched NBA games for over 25 years could have something to do with it!

Definitely consider this a #1 draft pick for your man's wedding ring!

​Gold & Silver, Waterproof Leather

by: Eternita Preziosa

A unique gold band using an interesting mix of metals, materials, and design approach.

The integration of genuine stingray leather (apparently quite durable) is certainly a first that we have seen for a wedding band.

Pointed Edge Wedding Band​​​​

by: Until Death Wed Rings

pointed edge wedding band

Wielding this ring on your finger should come with a warning similar to that of the Red Rider Bee-Bee gun: "Be careful, you'll poke your eye out!"

Otherwise, I love the unique look from New Jersey based artist Angelo.

​Men's ​Platinum Wedding Bands

EDGY INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AND

POWER OF PLATINUM

Get yourself a platinum wedding band and you'll be in good company - platinum was originally developed in the late 1770’s for royalty.

There is something about these two rings that I really enjoy. Like laying the foundation of a house, the platinum ring on the left embodies the foundation and building blocks of your union as a couple.

While the ring on the right screams "the future is now, join the robot machine while you still can!"

Such is the power of a braid.

​Collin Cowie Oyster Link Ring

Hammer Textured Wedding Band

by: ​Alysha Whitfield

Hammer textured unique mens wedding band

Simple designs can produce stunningly unique results. Love the wavy shimmer of this platinum ring. The metal is finely textured by hand and the whole ring is polished to a high shine.


Platinum for a Wedding Band

Platinum rings were originally developed in the late 1770’s for royalty, and to this day they are still associated with high durability. They have a bright white-silver finish and give off a luxury timeless look.

Platinum is a high density precious metal that is very rare, and is also one of the heaviest metals used for wedding bands. Its malleable nature makes it perfect for wedding rings settings that require intricate filigree work. However, as like most precious metals, platinum is mixed with other metals, like cobalt, iridium or ruthenium to make it harder.

Elk Antler with Gold Inlay

RUSTIC ELK ANTLER

​&

HARMONIC TUNE

Yup, that's right. Elk antlers and sound waves made it onto our top list of titanium wedding bands.

I seriously love the simple design and natural materials used in this elk antler ring. The 10k gold inlay and hand-turned titanium wedding band means you have a truly stunning piece of jewelry to wear.

On the flip side, a little bit of sound technology is required in order to forge this unique-as-your-voice titanium wedding band.

I wonder what a soundwave ring for Mariah Carey's voice would look like!?

​Gold Nugget Inlay Ring

​I would never have thought to put gold nuggets inlay into a titanium ring. I suppose that is why the talented Doug Peterson from Utah is the designer and I am not. Wonderful ​men's wedding band!

​Pine Tree Design Ring

While the look is certainly unique, I have a feeling that this is one of those rings that you must physically touch and inspect in order to truly appreciate.


Titanium for a Wedding Band

Titanium is a metallic element that can be found in abundance and therefore is made into many different products like golf clubs, air crafts, watches and even wedding bands.

  • Found in the late 18th century, and fittingly named after the mythical Greek giants, the Titans, who personified different forces of nature and also ruled the earth.
  • Titanium is one of the transitional elements on the periodic table and can be found found in many forms.
  • Titanium is a lightweight, affordable metal, that has grown in popularity for grooms-to-be because it offers a luxurious appearance, as well as a high degree of strength.
  • Bands can be found in very light grey/white color and their actual finish can change through different methods of polishing and or brushing.

Found in the late 18th century, and fittingly named after the mythical Greek giants, the Titans, who personified different forces of nature and also ruled the earth.

Titanium is one of the transitional elements on the periodic table and can be found found in many forms.

Titanium is a lightweight, affordable metal, that has grown in popularity for grooms-to-be because it offers a luxurious appearance, as well as a high degree of strength.

Bands can be found in very light grey/white color and their actual finish can change through different methods of polishing and or brushing.

An important feature to note is titanium's strength-to-weight ratio. It is the highest out of all the transitional metals, which means that titanium is light weight, with a low density, but is extremely strong. So, if you are looking for a light weight ring that you won't feel while wearing, than titanium bands are the one to choose.

Titanium can be split into four grades: 1 through 4. Grade one is the softest form of titanium while grade 4 is the hardest. The best type of titanium for wedding bands is Commercially Pure (CP) grade titanium, which is 99% pure. Grades between 2 to 4 CP work best for rings.

Black ​Titanium Wedding Bands

While there are many sharp looking black titanium rings on the market, the problem lies in that many of these bands aren’t actually created through the treatment process which transforms the entire color of the band. Most of them have only been plated (will eventually wear away) or have had an ion treatment that is more durable than being plated, but will eventually wear away or chip as well.

If you have your heart set on buying a black titanium ring, keep in mind that real black titanium rings will ALWAYS involve a treatment of the entire metal. If there are any notes about coating or techniques of ions, heat, or glue, than the ring has probably been coated.

black titanium wedding band

Titanium is naturally a grayish white color. To achieve the sharp looking black titanium wedding band, the titanium is treated one of two ways: by either applying black plate or by transforming the color of the metal with silicon dioxide and heat. As for the rings being treated with black plate, they may have been through a number of processes including heat/glue treatments and ion applications.
