Ever since we’ve started making wedding plans (aka… since two days after the engagement, basically), Mr. Owl has consistently insisted that he could get me a “better” ring than the one he got me. I happen to absolutely adore the ring he got me and would happily use it as a wedding ring, too, except for the fact that he’d like our rings to semi-match, and he’s getting a gold band.
I never knew how difficult it was to find pretty gold wedding rings. Seriously. It’s like nobody makes beautiful gold wedding rings– they’re all either really gaudy/weird, or really plain– and every design that looks nice and delicate is in silver. But today I stumbled upon an Etsy shop with some of the most gorgeous gold rings I’ve ever seen, and I just have to share them with you!
Aren’t they gorgeous? I especially love the second one– I’m a sucker for colored stones– but they are all so beautiful. I think in the end I will almost definitely go for rose-gold; it’s a little more feminine, and will still work with “matching” Mr. Owl’s ring by going with gold.
I also found an Etsy with great alternatives to normal plain bands for men: wood rings.
I’ve never really been a fan of anything other than simple gold bands for men– to me, there’s something very masculine and very attractive about a simple gold band on a man, and the fancy-shmancy ones just take away from that–, but these… I like these. They look a lot more traditional while still being quite interesting and unique. And, seeing as how Mr. Owl works with wood, they’re quite apt.
What do you all think? What is your dream wedding ring? What do you think about nontraditional rings on men?
I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!
