Can I Return or Exchange my ring?
We have been there and we know how important it is that you find the right one for you - oh wow...that works on so many levels...
"Ready to Ship" Rings:
You have 30 days from the date of delivery to exchange or return your ring. You may change out your size, width, style, or simply return.
PLEASE NOTE: we have a $30 restocking fee for "Ready to Ship" ring returns. Exchanges do NOT incur a restocking fee.
**Please note: All rings must be in clean, "unworn," and salable condition to be accepted for return or exchange. We reserve the right to charge a damage fee on any rings returned with excessive scratching or other abuse. Follow the care instructions on the postcard included in your shipment.**
If your purchase is a final sale item, no returns or refunds are allowed (i.e. ring sizer, free promotional item, silicone ring, birch box, etc)
Need to exchange more than once in 30 days? Need one more size to try to get it just right? No problem. We just ask that you pay for the shipping/handling both ways ($15 total) on any subsequent exchanges. We will invoice you, then will provide a shipping label, and then we can track everything both ways. To start this process, email us: email@example.com.
Made to Order Rings:
If you have a Founder's Line or Gentleman's Reserve ring that has NOT been engraved or customized in any way, you may return it within 30 days of your delivery date. Returns do incur a 25% restocking fee, based on the original retail price. Size exchanges can be processed for a remake fee of 15% of the original retail price. Size exchanges can occur at any time - so 10 years from now, you gain some weight and need to size up? We've got you on these made to order rings.
Custom rings are FINAL SALE and cannot be returned. Size exchanges on Custom rings can be processed for 20% of the original retail price at any time.

What happens if I want to Exchange or Return past 30 days?
Sorry bro, no Returns past 30 days. You wouldn't want to wear some other dude's tired ol' wedding band - so please get it back on time, and in "unworn" salable condition, if it's not "the one."
Can I return my Manly Ring Sizer?
Ring Sizers are FINAL SALE and not eligible for return. Please pass on to a friend if you are done with yours or recycle it!
We are ONLY able to engrave our Founder's Line and Custom Rings. If you are ordering one of our other rings and would like it engraved, the best thing to do is find a local jeweler who will do your engraving for a small fee. We have a collection HERE of rings that can ship out right away that are good for engraving with a local jeweler. Engraved rings are not eligible for return.
PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT recommend getting a plated ring engraved (i.e. The CEO, Instigator, Gentleman, Baller, Blue Steel, MVP, Journeyman, Whiz, etc). This weakens the plating, causing chipping, and therefore will void your warranty. The best rings for engraving are plain tungsten or titanium (Hero, Savant, Architect, Mr. Kensington, etc.).
Most rings come with a Manly Bands logo engraving on them. Exceptions to this are rings with wood inserts or our Founder's Line Black Zirconium rings.

Founder's Line, Gentleman's Reserve, and Custom Rings come with a FREE Lifetime Limited Warranty. Check out more information, including exceptions HERE.
Do you have Financing Options?
Yes - we offer a great "3 easy payments" deal with Affirm. It's 3 payments over 3 months with 0% interest! So gives you a little more wiggle room to get what you really want :) You can select this option by clicking "Affirm" near the credit card options at checkout to get more information and sign up to take advantage of that hot deal.
If for some reason you need to return your ring for a refund, follow our regular return procedure, and Affirm will handle any reimbursement/stop future payments. Please check out their website for additional information on how they process refunds.
For any further questions on Affirm loans, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Gold Plated vs Solid Gold?
Many of our "Ready to Ship" rings are made with gold plating. This is what makes the price tag so much less expensive than solid gold rings. Essentially it is a tungsten or black zirconium ring dipped in gold, and the gold plating does tend to fade over time as it mixes with your skin’s oils.
Solid Gold will oxidize a little over time but it will never fade the way gold plating does. The price tag is certainly higher, but Solid Gold is made to last and does retain its value, unlike it's plated friend.
Long term, plated jewelry will need more care that Solid Gold. With all plated jewelry, you’ll want to take it to a local jeweler about every 2 years or so and have it re-plated. This is usually a nominal fee. You will also want to keep it away from harsh chemicals (bleach, Lysol, hand sanitizer) as those will fade the gold plating faster than normal. If the plating is wearing after less than a year, that is covered under our one year no hassle warranty, so we are happy to replace it. More on the warranty here.

I ordered the wrong thing. Can I cancel?
The fastest way to cancel an order is to email: email@example.com or utilize the chat feature on the bottom right of the site. Our phone lines are crazy busy and the email and chat team are amazing - and usually able to respond fastest. Just know that our warehouse team is sometimes crazy fast but as long as it hasn't shipped out, we are more than happy to cancel or modify your order, as needed.
Do you guys make women's rings?!
While many of our rings can be worn by any gender, we do not specifically make traditional women's wedding bands. The Poet can pair nicely with many of our other rose gold rings like the Gentleman, Instigator, Whiz, Journeyman, etc, if you're looking for something simple and elegant. Also the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is a favorite amongst the ladies. Know that we can also create most anything in our custom department.
I have a Nickel Allergy. What rings are good for that?
- For all Wood, check out our Gentleman's Reserve Collection HERE
- For Titanium: Check out our Titanium collection HERE. Some rings come in a couple metal options so be sure to select Titanium when you go to buy. Our favorite titanium ring is the Architect :)
- For Founder's line or for Custom Rings: Titanium, Black Zirconium, and Cobalt Chrome are your best bets
- Silicone is also a good option as well, if you want to keep it casual
Where are you located/can I come into a store?
We are an online only retailer however we do have a few retailers that carry our rings in CA, CO, OH, and MA. Email us for details. Our corporate offices are in NW Florida and our warehouse is in Memphis, TN. Shipments go out from the warehouse in Memphis.
Are your wood and antler rings Waterproof?
Our "Ready to Ship" wood and antler rings are water-resistant but not waterproof, as you will find with most wood rings on the market. Our jeweler seals the wood in with a jewelry resin but they are not meant to to be worn in the shower and in the pool/lake/ocean. They will not fall into pieces after one shower, but please don't make it a habit. You wouldn’t put your axe with the wood handle in the dishwasher right? Same deal! **Obvious submerged water damage to your wood ring will void your no hassle one year warranty**
Our "Made to Order" wood and antler rings are made with wood and sealant that is more resilient to water than our Ready to Ship rings. We still do recommend that you keep a wood ring out of submerged water (pool, ocean, lake, bath, etc) but showering with it is fine. Because these rings are made with more premium materials, they carry a FREE Limited Lifetime warranty, we will replace or repair any damage to a Founder's or Custom wood ring and we don't make ya pay for the warranty - pretty nifty!
What kind of metals do you have?
So many choices, so little time. We've mapped out all the pros and cons for you on all our metals HERE.
