Coming in Hot: Men’s Wedding Ring Trends in 2020Posted | Updated
It’s hard to believe 2020 is already here. And it’s not just a new year — we’re at the start of a whole new decade! At Jordan Jack, one of our favorite things about new seasons (and years and decades) is getting to track all the wedding trends.
It’s not just dresses, flowers and motifs that change style from year to year — as you might expect, we like to keep a special eye on the rings. Wedding rings have always changed a bit over time, but their recent evolution has happened at a lightning pace. Choosing a ring is no longer a question of silver or gold. Modern grooms can choose from just about any metal they can think of (and an array of non-metal materials) and have a wide variety of colors and designs to consider as well.
The wedding world can be hard to keep up with sometimes, but that’s why we’re here. On the brink of this new decade, let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends coming into 2020.
For a long time, metal was the only option for wedding bands — and the only choice was between gold or silver. The good news? That’s not the case anymore. If you can think of a metal, there’s a pretty good chance you can buy it as a wedding band — from steel to tungsten to gunmetal to titanium. Whether you want a classic look that’s just a bit more durable or are going for the conversation piece, you can say a lot about your tastes and your love story with the band you choose. When you opt for alternate metals, you get to stand apart with a durable ring that is ready to last as long as your love.
Wood is also a fairly common non-metal option. It’s a simple, rugged and understated look for many a groom. It’s lightweight and is a step up from silicone without the restrictions metal can bring. Because each tree and piece of wood has a different grain, wood is also one of the most unique wedding band options on the market today. No two rings will be quite identical. If you want a ring that is every bit as unique as your love story — while still providing a classy look — wood might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Carbon Fiber is pretty much indestructible, and it’s becoming more common on the wedding band scene as well. If you’re looking to make a statement about just how strong your love is (or if you’re looking for something that looks good and is both durable and lightweight), carbon fiber is right up your alley. Whether your goal is to make a statement with a new, modern material or you’re just looking for a practical ring that will withstand just about anything you put it through, it’s a great choice for the modern groom. After all, you’re in this forever. Shouldn’t your ring be as well?
Colors on Colors
Of course, new materials aren’t the only trend taking the wedding band world by storm these days — there’s a rainbow of colors to choose from when it comes time to pick a ring. Beyond silver and gold, black has been around for a bit, and now you can often find colors like blue in many metals. When you branch out into silicone, your options get even wider. Just about any color you can think of is at your disposal. And, of course, wood brings its own color palate that goes with just about everything. Whatever your mood, your personality or your love story, there’s a wedding band color to suit you perfectly.
Designs for Days
There’s one last trend to keep an eye out for when it comes to wedding bands — designs. While plenty of bands still maintain a classic shape and style, you now have more options than ever before. From beveled edges and inlays to engravings and gemstones, modern wedding bands offer an array of ways to display your style.
The days of plain wedding bands are behind us — now you can choose something as intricate as you want, even mixing various colors, metals and materials (like stainless steel and carbon fiber) to get the look that’s just right for you.
The Right Ring for 2020’s Grooms
You and your love story are like no other, and your ring should reflect that. For grooms getting married in this year and beyond, you have more options at your fingertips (and on your fingers) than ever before. You can find the best choice for you — meeting the demands of your day-to-day life and sharing your love with the world. And, if you’re not quite sure what’s right for you, you can try out a few colors, styles and metals with a home try-on box.
See what looks and feels best on your finger — whether you want something heavy and durable or something lightweight. In the end, only you can determine which ring is the perfect eternal symbol of your love.
