3 minute read

The most popular ecommerce wedding ring brand for men has claimed position 388 in Inc. Magazine’s prestigious ranking.

Vineyard, UT - Manly Bands is announcing their debut on the Inc. 500, one of the most prestigious rankings of startups in the country. As the leader for ecommerce men’s wedding rings, Manly Bands is being recognized for the incredible growth they have achieved in just a few short years, transforming a niche category to an explosive retail industry.

The Inc. 500 has been the first milestone of significant success for some of the world’s most notable small businesses, including Zappos, Under Armour and Patagonia. However, to be named to the Inc. 500, brands must demonstrate superior growth and innovation in their respective market spaces over a period of three years. Judges evaluate revenue growth, entrepreneurial leadership, and effective public relations from tens of thousands of companies in order to award them with national notoriety.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our company,” says co-founder Johnathan Ruggiero, “It’s hard to imagine we first started only a few years ago with a Shopify store in our garage. Now, we’re the most popular ecommerce wedding ring brand for men in the United States, and still seeing incredible growth as more couples are choosing wedding bands that represent their personalities, passions, and unique relationships.”

When Manly Bands was founded in 2016, the market for men’s wedding rings was largely ignored. Wedding bands for women already had a wide selection of options, however it wasn’t until Johnathan Ruggiero and Michelle Luchese tried to find the perfect rings for each other that they realized there was huge potential in this market. By prioritizing creative designs, unique materials and excellent customer service they have reinvented the way couples shop for their wedding rings.

Co-founder Michelle Luchese says, “To make the Inc. 500 is a huge honor, but it’s also just the beginning for our brand. With new brand integrations and the launch of our sister company, Rosie Ray, we’re revolutionizing wedding jewelry for all!”

Manly Bands has previously been recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine, Forbes, JCK Online and other publications for their modern designs, simple personalization options, and savvy brand partnerships with Jack Daniel’s and the MLB. 

Now one of the top few hundred brands on this year’s Inc. 500, Manly Bands has its sights set on expanding their majority market share and exploring new brand partnerships to continue to attract the attention of couples looking for wedding rings that uniquely define who they are.
