5 Modern Alternatives to Traditional Men’s Wedding Rings with Mens Rings Online

Men’s wedding rings have come a long way from the simple silver and gold bands they used to be, with cutting edge designs and statement style choices now on the table for grooms. If you’re not into the traditional look, there are plenty of modern alternatives that feature unique materials, colours and finishes. 

Choosing your wedding band is about balancing personal taste with lifestyle fit. It should not only look and feel good, but tick any practical boxes for your everyday life. Today our guest author Mens Rings Online is sharing five different men’s wedding ring designs for grooms who want to break the mould.

Black Rings

The stark design and sleek aesthetic of black rings have broad appeal for anyone wanting a modern look. Tungsten is a weighty, solid and almost scratch-proof metal, perfect if you need a harder-wearing ring for everyday life. These rings don’t need to be one dimensional, they can also offer a sneak peek of an interior colour for something more. Our black tungsten ring with blue inner band is a great example, with other interior colours like rose or yellow gold available. Brushed finishes are also a stylish option!

Ceramic Rings

Ceramic might sound too fragile a material to use for a ring that represents a lifetime commitment, but that’s not the case with zirconia ceramic. It’s lightweight like titanium, scratch resistant like tungsten and non-conductive which is ideal if you work with electricity. Polished, brushed, satin-finished or faceted are just some of the finishes available for this versatile material.

Wood Rings

The sophisticated design of these wedding bands might not be what you expect when you read ‘wood rings’. They’re made with wood that is encased in a titanium or tungsten material to help them last a long time. The wood shows through the centre band, creating an original and stylish look. Our dark koa wood tungsten rings are great examples of this finish.

Nebula Rings

If you’re looking for something that’s out of this world (pardon the pun), nebula rings feature swirling patterns in black and blue. With different flat and rounded designs available in tungsten or titanium, you can choose whether a heavier or lighter metal is a better fit for your lifestyle. 

Matte Rings

If you’re not as fond of the shiny stuff, you’ll definitely find matte rings appealing. Matte rings have a sandblasted finish for a simple lustreless look that makes for a great statement piece. Made from titanium, they are lightweight and strong, but need to be looked after as they are not scratch-proof. A titanium ring with a matte centreline is a great option if you’re looking for a truly stand out design.
