Wedding Rings For Men

Choosing a wedding ring is quite the process especially when you are a guy who has never worn any jewelry before. Choosing a wedding ring is just like choosing to be branded for life. We have noticed that there is a growing appeal of non-traditional wedding rings for men. wedding Ring for men Most of the men we know, hang out with, and marry, tend to be very active. They are always skiing, mountain biking, building, working construction, or going to the gym. None of these activities are the most conducive to wearing a large wedding ring or thick band. At Gold Leaf, we believe that the “now” trend should not usurp control over the wishes and dreams of the couple. For some, the idea of tattooed wedding bands may resonate, while others may be rushing to the jewelry store in desire of a more traditional route with diamonds and precious metals. However, there are many other options for wedding rings for men including:
  • - Wooden Rings
  • - Cement Rings
  • - Titanium Rings
  • - Deer Antler Rings
  The choice is entirely up to you…

These are just a few of the many options that are an alternative to the classic wedding rings and bands available for men.

Tattooed wedding ring

Wedding band tattoos have gained popularity in the last few years and are a great alternative for wedding rings for men. Wedding tattoos rid shoppers over the common anxieties that arise when picking a jewel or band for their betrothed. Questions like: White gold or platinum? How many carats? What cut? How much of my annual income should I spend? No longer exist. For some couples, a tattoo ring helps signify the permanency of their love and devotion to one another. Because, although it may fade, a tattoo lasts a lifetime.

Those who have a history of losing jewelry or who work in a trade where it’s hard to wear a large rock or band on their finger may find a wedding ring tattoo more acquiescent to their lifestyle. The design is completely customizable with endless variations for each couple. The tattoo does not necessarily have to wrap around the wedding finger like a ring. It can be an initial, date, or symbol placed on the finger or palm. What is your favorite wedding ring for men? Read our blog post on how to let your personality Shine through on your wedding day.

It’s almost impossible to get something custom made when you are in a hurry. Aspen perfect wedding day rings-marinabrendan rings-marina-brendan
