The classic men’s wedding band? It’s not going anywhere. But for those guys looking for a less traditional way to ring up, the jewelry world is responding. Today’s increasingly popular men’s engagement rings range from diamond-studded gold or platinum bands and signet rings to others featuring colorful precious stones and distinct metals, from silver to steel titanium. Wedding band offerings are just as varied. Gold or platinum bands are true classics, and assorted finishes—from matte or polished to brushed, hammered or even engraved—can give them a personalized edge. So too do mixed-metal combinations. And guys aren’t overlooking diamonds, either. “Many men want designs that stand the test of time but have a modern twist,” says Dominique Anderson with O.C. Tanner Jewelers in SLC. Fortunately for these chaps, current options have them well in mind.
