What will be the number one men's wedding band in 2024? 

The answer is the Signet Ring. Signet rings have a long history and are known for their engraved or embossed design. Engraving can be a family crest, monogram, or other personal symbols. Morgan & Co have created a number of unique and personal signet rings for their clients in recent months. Not all signet rings need to be engraved, Morgan & Co have found that a number of their grooms have opted for no engraving, leaving the signet plate plain.

Selecting your signet ring

The beauty of a signet ring is the ability to personalise the ring with a design that is meaningful to you and your partner. Consider engraving your initials, a special date, or a symbol that represents your relationship. Adding a diamond or gemstone as a feature is also an option when it comes to creating a custom made men's signet ring. Why not make your ring unique to you and your personal style?

Mixed metals 

2024 is all about experimentation and pushing boundaries. Mixed metals are taking centre stage, allowing grooms to combine various metals like platinum, gold, titanium, and even Zirconium  to create eye-catching and dynamic wedding bands. This trend not only adds a touch of uniqueness but also symbolises the harmonious blend of the couple's lives.

Personalised engravings

Engravings have always been a way to add a personal touch to wedding bands, but in 2024, grooms are taking it to the next level. Morgan & Co have  incorporated meaningful quotes and coordinates of special places of their couples. These engravings infuse the band with sentiment and tell a unique love story.

Two-Tone Wedding bands with diamond accents: A Timeless Blend of Elegance

When it comes to men's bespoke wedding bands, one trend that will be big in 2024 is the incorporation of two-tone metals with exquisite diamond accents. This captivating fusion of materials and stones creates a timeless and sophisticated look that effortlessly blends classic elegance with contemporary style.

Black wedding bands 

Black wedding rings will be huge in 2024 due to their unique and modern aesthetic. Black wedding rings are often chosen by individuals looking for a non traditional and stylish alternative to gold or silver wedding bands.

Here are some key aspects to consider when it comes to black wedding rings:

  • Black Tungsten rings are highly durable, scratch resistant. However, due to its hardness it is more brittle and can break rather than bend like its more malleable counterpart, gold. If you accidentally smash a tungsten ring against a hard surface, the mental may crack or shatter. Therefore, any man who works with his hands should think twice before purchasing a tungsten wedding band. 
  • Black Titanium rings are known for their strength and lightweight nature. Black titanium is durable, the colour is achieved through special treatments. The downside to buying a black titanium ring is that it is not recommended for resizing.
  •  Zirconium is another metal that can be treated to achieve a black colour. Black Zirconium rings are durable and resistant to corrosion. Unlike black tungsten that can shatter, black tungsten rings are shatterproof.

Design Options at Morgan & Co are endless. Black wedding rings came to be made in a variety of designs and styling. We can create a simple, classic band or more intricate designs with added details like engravings, textures or adding gemstones. 

Durability of black wedding bands

Many of the black wedding band materials are exceptionally durable and scratch resistant. They are less likely to show signs of wear compared to traditional metals like gold or silver.  

Are you allergic to gold or silver?

Metals such as tungsten, ceramic and titanium are often hypoallergenic making them suitable for individuals with metal allergies or sensitive skin.

Finger sizing 

At Morgan & Co we will make sure that we measure your finger to gain the correct ring size. It is important to gain the correct ring size, as resizing black wedding rings can be challenging due to the hardness of the black metals. White, yellow and rose gold can be re-sized so if in the rare case that your ring needs re-sizing, Morgan & Co offer one complementary re-sizing. 

What is the right width for a men's wedding band?

The width of a men's wedding band plays a crucial role in its overall appearance and comfort. It's a factor that can greatly influence the style and feel of the ring on the finger. When choosing the best width for a men's wedding band, several factors should be considered, including personal style, finger size, and comfort. Let's delve into the different widths and how to make the right choice:

Narrow Width (3mm-5mm)

Narrow-width wedding bands are typically around 3mm to 5mm in width. These bands offer a more delicate and understated look. They are often preferred by individuals with smaller hands or those who prefer a minimalist and subtle style. Narrow-width bands can also work well for those who plan to stack their wedding band with other rings.

Medium Width (6mm-8mm)

Medium-width wedding bands fall in the range of 6mm to 8mm. This width range is the most common choice for men's wedding bands. It strikes a balance between being substantial enough to make a statement while still being comfortable for everyday wear. Medium-width bands are versatile and work well with a variety of styles and finger sizes.

Wide Width (9mm and above)

Wide-width wedding bands are typically 9mm or wider. These bands offer a bold and substantial look on the finger. They are often chosen by individuals who want a more prominent and eye-catching design. Wide-width bands can provide a strong visual impact and are favoured by those with larger hands or those who prefer a more substantial presence on their finger.

    Ultimately, the best width for a men's wedding band is a matter of personal preference and comfort. It's a decision that should be made based on your individual style, finger size, and how the band will fit into your lifestyle. Trying on different widths in person and consulting with a jeweller can help you make an informed choice that you'll be happy with for years to come.
