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 3 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.

Shipping

Made to Order rings are made to order, so they generally take 4–5 weeks to be delivered. Rush shipping may be available for certain rings.

Exchanges

You get one free size exchange within the first 30 days. And there's no time limit on any future size exchanges. Wanna know even more? Click HERE

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!

OUTSTANDING!!

I have never worn a ring in my entire life so I was definitely not looking forward to that aspect of married life, but Manly Bands has made the entire transition actually enjoyable! I was initially planning to just purchase a generic tungsten band from the same shop I bought my other half's band from, but came across this website and was impressed by the variety and reviews. I chose the Founder's Line and was immediately taken by The Aficionado and, combined with the discount from ordering the sizer in advance, it was an easy decision. Looking back, I'm very glad I chose this route for the following reasons:

1) The Founder's Line is a customized ring with quarter-size options. My fingers tend to swell in the mornings and shrink in the evenings, and I was constantly torn between a size 10 and 10.5. Fortunately, the Founder's Line offers rings in 10.25, and now I have the absolute perfect-sized ring.

2) Customer Service! I had a minor question and submitted an inquiry through the website at around 8pm here (Hawaii Time, mind you) and I swear, within fifteen minutes I had a response and answer from an actual employee pop up in my inbox. I was absolutely stunned. If I had any doubts about working with this company, those immediately vanished.

3) Quick turn-around! I was advised that the ring would take 4-5 weeks to arrive, but I had mine in the mailbox in less than two weeks. I'm certainly not suggesting this is normal and you should wait until two weeks before…

Absolutely Perfect

I chose, "The Aficionado" , for my husband's wedding ring. It's Black Zirconium, with wooden inlay on the inside of the band that is actually made from Old Whiskey Barrels. All I can say is it's absolutely Beautiful, and the quality is amazing. He loves it. Thank you, Manly Bands. I will definitely be a lifelong customer.
