Selecting a wedding band is just as important for the groom, as it is for the bride. For all the soon-to-be grooms out there, we’re here to help you select a wedding band that you will treasure for years to come.

There’s a great deal to consider when selecting your band, so we’re answering some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding men’s wedding jewellery.


What trends are most popular amongst men lately?

In the past 10-15 years, men’s wedding bands have gone through a transformational period, moving from the highly popular wide band model, to designs with a more vintage appeal.

Many grooms yearn for a traditional look with a modern twist when choosing their ring. Lately, we have seen a surge in the popularity of thinner bands, which have also been popular in previous years.  

The most important consideration is to ensure that your wedding band fits the hand properly and is comfortable to wear.

Recently, popular styles for men include black rhodium plated rings, as well as bands that are embellished with diamonds on the inside.

Copper gold wedding bands are perfect for those seeking a ring with timeless appeal and can work great with different skin tones – don’t be scared to try a metal that you may not have considered initially, you never know, it could be the one!


Should the bride and groom’s wedding bands complement one another?

Despite the similarity in trends in men and women’s bands, it is not necessarily crucial for the bride and groom to choose matching wedding bands.

Although brides typically have a strong influence in the groom’s band selection, it is not uncommon for a bride to select a diamond band and the groom to select a simple gold or black band.


What metal is best for a men’s wedding band?

My personal favourites are white, gold or platinum with black rhodium plating. Black rhodium lasts the longest and is able to resist general wear and tear. 

It is important is to look for a wedding band with an open mind. Never rule anything out until you try it, you might end up with the band of your dreams by simply trying something a little bit unusual.
