Wedding: The Rings

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!

    Those are some beautiful rings! I especially love the 4th one and for something so beautiful and timeless I think the price they ask is very reasonable.

    I’m very partial to simple silver gold wedding rings for men. I think they are elegant and masculine. But the wood ones are very nice too. I think it’d be a hard choice!

    Good luck finding your ring 🙂

      Aren’t they gorgeous? I love how timeless they look; I think that’s the appeal for me, is that the ring looks like it could be from any time period. The flashier, more modern diamond rings with the thick bands and huge diamonds just aren’t my thing.

      He definitely wants a simple gold band, so at least we’re not BOTH indecisive! 😀

      Oooh, shiny! I definitely love the stone in the middle with two on the side (that’s how my engagement ring is, so y’know. Perfect. :D). It’s such a nice setting.
      Better save this comment so your future husband knows what to get!

    I’ve always loved white gold…a ring out of white gold would be my dream wedding ring. I’ve never thought much about men’s wedding rings, but those wood ones are really cool! 😀 So excited for you!!


    • Eccentric Owl

      My engagement ring is white gold, and it’s so pretty! Although the more I look, the more attracted I am to rose gold. It just looks so feminine and old-fashioned to me. 🙂

  • Jamie Rose

    I love those gold ones! Gold is my favorite hands down and would much prefer my wedding ring to be gold when that time comes. I love a vintage look too. More intricate is better than a bigger diamond in my book. The ring on the top left is my absolute favorite from the ones you picked out. It’s just so pretty!

    • Eccentric Owl

      I thought I wouldn’t like gold, mostly because I’d never really seen a gold wedding ring with jewels that looked good, but the more I look, the more appealing it’s getting. Especially after finding these ones!
      Intricate is definitely better than big!

  • Runes and Rhinestones

    Those are all really beautiful rings! Not to my particular taste, but that’s just because I’m a picky so and so 🙂 I prefer non-conventional rings all around; the wooden ones are awesome but I think I’d rather something a bit shinier 🙂 My favourite metals are silvery ones.

    • Eccentric Owl

      Hehe, yeah. I’m pretty picky, too. My favorite metals are silver, or rose gold. I like things that look delicate! But the rings above– the girl ones– are pretty appealing. I think because they look sort of old-fashioned, and I love that!

    Woooh, pretty rings!! I didn’t know about wooden ones, that’s kind of fun. 🙂 Dear and I are both getting plain gold bands for wedding rings; neither of us normally wears rings anyway, we’ll probably end up keeping them in a drawer or something. 😉

    • Eccentric Owl

      I didn’t know about wooden ones, either; they’re so interesting! I do like the idea of gold bands. They’re nice and simple and old-fashioned. Haha, I don’t normally wear rings, either. But my engagement ring feels pretty natural and I don’t even notice it like I did other rings. So I’m hoping a wedding ring will be the same way!

  • Sarah With A Bow

    If I ever get married (and that is a big if for a girl that hasn’t even had a boyfriend) I don’t know that I’d end up wearing rings because rings and my fingers do not get along. I guess only time will tell. I really like the idea of those wooden bands, I must admit.

    • Eccentric Owl

      Hey, I never had a boyfriend either, till Mr. Owl. And that didn’t happen till I was 23, which by today’s standards is really super old to have a first boyfriend. So don’t despair! Although you don’t really seem like the type TO despair. Buuut you know.
      And I actually tend not to wear rings regularly, either, because they end up irritating my fingers. But the engagement ring feels a lot better and most of the time I don’t even notice it. Maybe because it’s properly sized?

      These rings are not mine; they belong to Etsy shops as linked beneath each photo. This is a wish-I-had-them post as said. 🙂
