Tender Treasures: Wedding Rings for Guys Who Wear Their Hearts on Their Sleeves

couple ring shopping together

Every man is not cut from the same cloth. The antiquated idea of “what makes a man a man” has always been outdated and outrightly false. Just as the fashion and beauty industry has long tempted women to fit expectations thrust upon them, men have been given the same treatment. You should love sports, be rough, enjoy whiskey, eat steak, and show no emotions. Not all men abide by this, and they should never feel as if they’re forced to.

Real men are whoever they want to be. They’re compassionate, considerate, and true to themselves; they support those around them while still embarking on their own adventures; they’re not above setting aside their own needs to help those who cannot help themselves. At Manly Bands, we appreciate every man for who he is: an individual. The wedding rings we design and create for men are meant to showcase just that.

For the artistic, emotionally rich, and tender-hearted men out there, you might want something more than the classic, masculine, nuts-and-bolts wedding band—one color, no design, no engraving, nothing unique or personal. You, a man who wears his heart on his sleeve, might want a customized wedding ring, one that emits the love you feel for yourself, your spouse, and your relationship.

We don’t blame you. That’s why we offer custom ring designs and ring collections from across the spectrum, giving men the option to choose a wedding ring that truly enriches their life.

But what would that ring look like to you? Perhaps you want your newfound jewelry to match your daily style or you simply want something personal, unique, and breathtaking. Whatever it is, we have numerous options to provide you with your ideal wedding band. Let’s take a closer look at how you pick your custom ring design and what various options are available to you.

It’s our goal to guarantee you end up with the wedding ring of your dreams, so we want you to have a picture-perfect idea of what your ring will look like. But how do the added materials, inlays, and sleeves match up to your personality? Let’s take a closer look at some of the most unique ones.
