How It Works

Confirm Your Size

We are gonna send you a ring sizer after you purchase this ring. Sure, you can opt out of that part if you REALLY know your size. But you’ll still need to wait for an email from us until you can enter you size.

When you get the ring sizer, follow our instructions here on how to properly get your size using our ring sizer. After we get your size, it will take about 4 - 5 weeks to craft your ring. You'll get another email the moment your ring has shipped, and once received (about 3 business days later), you'll live happily ever after.

Excellence all around!

I was looking for something unique for my fiancés ring. When I came across Manly Bands, I was overwhelmed by the amount of choices I had. I was unsure about purchasing a ring without seeing it in stores first, but when I saw The Aficionado, I thought it was the perfect combination of classic and unique. I knew the whiskey barrel interior would be a wow factor when he opened the box. (The packaging of the box was also pretty cool). Not only did the design and quality of the ring exceed my expectations, the customer service did as well. I needed assistance in sizing, since my fiancé was in between sizes, and they recommended getting a quarter size (10.25). The anticipated arrival of the ring was supposed to be 5 weeks and the ring arrived within 2 weeks. It was great! Such a smooth and simple process. Easiest part of my wedding planning experience so far :)

Amazing! Would definitely recommend!

Aside from the beauty and uniqueness of the ring, the customer service I experienced is incomparable. John helped me as I searched for my ring and gave great insight on the qualities that made this ring ideal. While shopping for the ring I had a question that he didn’t have an answer to, I moved on to my next question and continued shopping. Two days later I received an email from John with an answer to the question I had asked days before. It was intimidating to order such an important item from an online company, but I can comfortably say they go above and beyond to ensure you get what you are looking for and that they provide the information necessary to to make your decisions. Thank you Manly Bands, you have truly given me a one of a kind ring and experience!

Stunning!

I'll preface this by saying that I previously had qualms about purchasing a ring online; however, after seeing a friend's purchase from Manly Bands, I was impressed.

I was looking for a ring for everyday use and was drawn to The Aficionado given its durability and looks.

Manly Bands was great, from start to finish! Upon receiving the ring sizer, I tried on a few different sizes for hours throughout the day just to be confident in my size selection.

While the Manly Band's website was not functioning when I went to enter my size, Samantha, a customer care representative, responded to my email almost immediately. Given my large knuckles and more normal-sized fingers, I couldn't quite decide between two half sizes. With Samantha's help and suggestion, I ultimately chose a quarter size - the fit wound up being absolutely perfect!

Given the world's current circumstances with the Corona Virus, I'm not sure if these were normal circumstances; however, Manly Bands processed my order, and I received my ring in exactly one week (simply outstanding)!

The ring's features, colors, and finish are true to the photographs represented online. The band is a bit on the thick side (what I wanted), but even so with its correct size, it does not feel excessively large or heavy.

One extremely minor side observation is that the whiskey-barreled wood inlay is slightly lighter than how it appears in photographs (though I sure there is some variation given the wood used). The photographs appear…

Great ring

The order process was easy and completed faster than expected. The ring is great quality and fits properly. The whiskey barrel is a bit lighter colored than the photos indicate, but still looks awesome. The one disappointment was the ring box - it literally ripped in half after opening it twice.

Hey there,

So sorry to hear that the ring box broke on you! We certainly don't want that happening and I'm happy to send another one out for free if you'd like. Please let me know and I can get another one shipped ASAP. Thanks!
