Cutting-edge Wedding Jewelry Styles for Your Modern Wedding

By Sophie Farber

When considering the styles of men's wedding rings it is well worth thinking about the personality of the individual. While different men have very different personalities different rings will suit different personalities as well. A loud outgoing man, for example, can wear a loud outgoing unique men's ring.

Men's wedding rings are somewhat of a new phenomenon. Most likely your fathers do not wear wedding rings but your friends do. In the United States it was very rare for a groom to receive a ring before World War II. But during the war, rings became symbols of wives left at home, and their popularity soared. Certainly you are not required to have a ring, but it will be a comfort when your love is far away, a reminder when temptation is high, and a symbol of pride to the world that you are a married man.

For those who are unsure if a ring will feel comfortable, purchase an inexpensive ring and try it on for a week or so. It will most likely feel uncomfortable and strange at first, but as the week goes on, it will feel more natural. Look for rings that have a "comfort fit" design (rounded edges that prevent the ring from cutting into your flesh.)

Men's wedding rings are, in the eyes of some men, effeminate. "Real men" don't wear rings or jewelry at all. This is becoming less of an issue as the wearing of a man's wedding ring becomes more common, but is still an issue with many men.

But once he has his ring on it is rare that he decides that he doesn't like it. And even if he doesn't, it is rare that the woman will let him take it off! A ring can add to the width and look of strength of your hands. Ask your jeweler to assist you with styles that will be the most flattering and tasteful worn on your particular hand.
