This is by far the most popular combination we see in men's jewelry, and it has remained this way for many years now. Men want their bands to stand out, but not in a flashy way. This is why it can be hard to integrate stones into settings that men will wear. If you want to add a bit of flair to the band without going overboard, then this is a good option to pursue. Having some brushed metal as part of the band will help it contrast with the shinier parts of the ring. The designs you can create with these contrast of finishes are endless.
If you know your man wants one color and one finish on the ring, then there are still some great ways to make it unique and bold. One way is to select a ring with intricately etched designs in the metal. We have seen many options for this style, but the most popular at the moment are as follows:
- Celtic knots
- Braided designs
- Basket weave
- Mechanical gears
- Natural features like water and leaves
- Geometric patterns
Two-Tone Color Scheme
We see a lot of men with wedding bands of this type every year as well. For many years, the popular style was to have a yellow gold band with a smaller white gold band in the center. While this is still a popular option, we are seeing more men favor titanium bands where the two tones used are silver and black. A two-tone band is a great way to make the band unique without making it flashy in the way most men don't appreciate.
Stones are not the only things we can cut with multi-faceted surfaces. If your man wants a ring that is strong and bold without being too plain, then this is an option to consider. The ring surface can be cut in a way that will add some unique texture to the surface. The light will shine off the different surface angles in a lovely way that will make the ring one of a kind and yet still very subtle and masculine. We can make the cuts rigid with stark edges, or they can be more muted and soft at the edges.
It is possible to add stones to a man's ring without making the ring look feminine. There are a few ways to do this, and most of them will include the stones being completely inlaid in the metal so that they are completely flush with the surface of the surrounding metal. This can add an elegant pop in a masculine way.
