Shopping for your wedding bands is an important and fun task in wedding planning! You want a jeweler you can trust who also has a variety of options. Arthur’s Jewelers knows everything about current wedding band trends while also having all the classics in stock. This family-owned jeweler has an amazing selection with over 4,000 wedding bands and options for any budget.
We talked to Tyler Nogai, who owns the company with his brother Carver, about what is trending in all things wedding rings and he gives us all the details about their incredible sale happening now for a limited time!
How to Shop for a Wedding Band
First, Nogai suggests that you should generally begin looking at wedding bands 6-9 months ahead of the wedding. “We find many couples need to come back several times to make their choices. This gives you time to find your favorites and many guys have not worn a ring before, so the first time around they are getting used to it and how it looks. Then several weeks later, come back and try on your favorites.” He mentions that some styles can take up to 6 weeks to be created so getting ahead of the game is necessary. But, if you are looking for a deal, you can’t miss Arthur’s Jewelers Tax-free Summer Bridal & Wedding Band Event happening NOW through August 6th!

Another important thing to consider when ring shopping is to think about longevity, “Will I like this material or color in 20-30 years?” Nogai also says to ask your jeweler about the types of metals you are considering to know if they can be resized “Usually, our finger size will change several times over the next 20 years. Not every material can be sized again.”
You’ll also want to decide on a jeweler that has a variety of options to choose from. Arthurs Jewelers is not only great if you are searching for wedding band trends, but really any style you can think of. While most jewelry stores have 50-70 men’s bands and 100 women’s bands, Arthur’s is one of the top three in the nation for wedding ring selection with thousands of options to select from.
Top Ideas in Wedding Band Trends
In the age of Tik Tok and Pinterest, the possibilities for rings are truly endless, but there are some wedding band trends that are emerging and making a comeback. Particularly for women’s wedding bands to go with their engagement ring. Nogai says they “want a band that is distinctive and different. One example is the Tiara bands, which come more to a ‘V’ point in the middle with or without diamonds and mix different shapes of diamonds in the wedding band. These rings also come with gentle curves, but they do not fit up tightly to the engagement ring.”
Arthur’s Jewelers is also seeing a lot of people go for the “stacking” trend where you can stack multiple wedding bands above and below the engagement ring. “It may be having two wedding bands on the same side of the engagement ring with different textures, metal colors, and diamond shapes,” Nogai describes. “It can also be having two different wedding bands that are thin with one on each side of the engagement ring. This way each ring, the engagement ring and the wedding bands, have their own personality and stand out as being different, versus the traditional everything blending together.”
We know that trends are cyclical, returning every 30 years or so and that is true with a classic men’s band. “Many guys are choosing old school rings meaning wedding bands like their father’s wedding band and in yellow gold. Guys like the color and retro style — they grew up seeing that wedding band their father wore every day and have wanted that for themselves to be like their dad,” says Nogai.
When it comes to those looking for a classic wedding band style with a bit of flair, Nogai says wedding band trends include beginning with a modern, darker metal and placing inlays inside of them with another material. They can choose metals such as the patented gray gold, black-forged carbon fiber, tungsten, black ceramic, black zirconium, Damascus steel, and meteorite. From there, Nogai says there are 18 inlay materials to select from. “Some of the interesting materials are Dinosaur Bone, Antler, and Meteorite. Guys love our new Barrel-Aged Collection where you can choose woods from Rye Whiskey, Bourbon, Single Malt, Cognac, Cabernet or Chardonnay barrels.”
