While we love to admire the engagement rings adorning various celebrity hands, we must admit that the men are often overlooked. There may be fewer opportunities for individuality with men’s wedding rings, but there is also a true timelessness about the classic gold band. Here are our favorite examples of celebrity men’s wedding bands.
Jessica Biel, wears an absolutely stunning vintage-inspired ring that features lots of gemstones and ornate detailing, yet Justin Timberlake is rather understated with his choice of jewelry. A thick yellow gold band with a brushed finish, it is a classic choice that never goes out of style.
Even fashion-forward Kanye West opted for a yellow gold ring, when he said “I do” with Kim Kardashian in July. Known for his often edgy style choices – his favorite designers include Givenchy and Maison Martin Margiela – the rapper looked absolutely thrilled when spotted wearing his new wedding band.
Actor and director Ben Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005, and has since worn a slim white gold wedding ring. While his wife alternates between wearing her cushion-cut engagement ring, and stack of diamond bands in various cuts and styles, Affleck prefers the simple look of a plain band.
You probably know Beyoncé rocks one of the most extraordinary celebrity engagement rings; her 18-carat emerald-cut diamond is absolutely breathtaking. Her husband, on the other hand, chooses to wear a plain platinum wedding band with polished edges. Jay-Z is often spotted without his band, which is not uncommon for men.
Now married to Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds wore two yellow gold bands – at the same time – when married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008 to 2011. While it’s not clear whether one was an engagement ring, we love this quirky twist on an otherwise classic style.
Parks and Recreation star, Chris Pratt, married Anna Faris in 2009. Anna sports a round solitaire engagement ring and Chris complements the timeless style, with a slim yellow gold wedding band.
We’ve talked about Victoria Beckham’s incredible collection of engagement rings before, so it’s not too surprising to see that David has a few different bands himself. When the pair got married, in 1999, the footballer wore a platinum band studded with square-cut diamonds.
More recently, he has been spotted with a plain platinum wedding ring, but at times has sported more ostentatious styles. This diamond wedding band features four rows of pave-set diamonds, for a truly dazzling look.
