At Knox Jewelers, we don’t just create stunning jewelry for women – we also specialize in designing men’s wedding bands of all kinds. The origins of men’s wedding rings go all the way back to the matrimonial culture of ancient Egypt, wherein rings of braided hemp or reed were used to symbolize the eternal unity and love of the wedded couple. As the ages progressed, new kinds of styles came into and out of fashion, including gimmel rings, poesy rings, and more. However, the ritual of double-ring ceremonies did not develop in the United States until around the late 1940’s. Since that time, a variety of styles have taken hold in popular opinion, and customers today who are looking to have a custom, handcrafted wedding band produced to symbolize everlasting love and marriage have the ability to choose from a vast number of unique styles and variations on classic designs. Let’s take a look now at some of the different styles of men’s wedding bands we have handcrafted here at Knox Jewelers for our gentleman customers in the past, who – to say the least – have been extraordinarily happy with the final design and product.
Classic Men’s Wedding Rings
The archetypal wedding band is the classic style, usually consisting of a relatively simple design, smooth curves, clean lines, and yellow gold, though subtle variations on these attributes do exist. At Knox Jewelers, we can take a classic design and give it a refreshing, innovative set of modifications to make it uniquely yours. Whether you are looking to incorporate a different kind of metal for the band, or if you are seeking a custom set of modifications on an existing design, we would be more than happy to work with you on crafting a ring that will symbolize your eternal love.

Our expert metalsmiths and artists at Knox Jewelers can take this style in a variety of different directions, and many different patterns can be crafted. For example, let’s take a close look at our North Shore Hand Engraved Wheat wedding band. This exquisite ring uses 14k white gold in concert with lovely wheat pattern around the center of the band. Naturally, the engraved pattern can be customized with your own unique design. Also of interest to you may be our North Shore Hand Engraved Scroll ring.
