Men’s Wedding Bands – Classic to Contemporary: Designs That Will Fit Any Man’s Style

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.

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.

Platinum – The Ideal Metal

When customers ask what our metal of choice is for their engagement ring, they will always be told Platinum. Platinum has many desirable attributes that will make your ring look spectacular and last a life time.

For reference sake, we use 950 Platinum Ruthenium, which has the best combination of tensile strength (durability) and scratch resistance compared to other Platinum alloys.

Platinum is hands down the best metal to use in jewelry. It’s a very heavy, dense metal, providing a strong hold on stones and solid structural integrity. Platinum does not wear down like other precious metals. When scratched, the metal is actually displaced and pushed elsewhere on the ring, not rubbed or worn off. This characteristic puts Platinum in a class of it’s own, making it suitable for everyday wear over a lifetime and maintaining the greatest security for your gemstones.

Platinum is and will always be white. It will never yellow like white gold, which requires Rhodium plating. It will never tarnish like silver either. Platinum’s natural white color is ideal for settings, from colorless diamonds to vibrant gemstones.

Platinum is also hypoallergenic unlike common white gold alloys which contain nickel. Imagine your finance not being able to wear her ring because she’s allergic to it.

Platinum does not react with Chlorine, unlike white gold, which will corrode and discolor. Chlorine is found in pools, hot tubs, and common house cleaning chemicals.

When making a decision on the right ring, make sure you understand what it’s made of. We want your setting to last a lifetime, protecting the valuable gemstones it holds. No metal does this better then Platinum. With a platinum engagement ring, you don’t have to worry about allergic reactions, chemical breakdowns, or yellowing color. Make Platinum your metal of choice for life.
