Should men wear a diamond wedding ring?
There have been many discussions about men’s diamond rings or men’s diamond wedding rings. Arguments arise over whether guys should wear diamond rings or not.
Men’s diamond wedding rings are a popular choice for the groom. However, plain wedding rings continue to dominate wedding ring sales. Diamonds are frequently related to the endurance of eternal love but reflect hardness and strength—a perfect symbol for men’s jewellery.
Bespoke Diamond Wedding Rings for Men
In addition to the diamond wedding ring designs specifically styled for me (see our collection image below) we create boldly striking diamond wedding rings as part of our bespoke design service. Typical commissions feature heavyweight Platinum or Palladium bands, set with diamonds in strong, weighty masculine styles.

Men’s wedding ring designs rarely include diamonds. For this reason, we put together a collection of amazing men’s diamond wedding rings to complement our regular plain wedding rings.
The most obvious characteristic of the men’s wedding ring styles is a wider band width. Chunkier styles give additional depth for setting diamonds. Much larger diamonds require a raise bezel or claw.
Many of the following designs appear in our men’s wedding ring section, described below.
Men’s diamond rings for everyday wear
For those guys considering a diamond ring for everyday wear, don’t be put off by wedding ring styles. Most of our diamond wedding rings for me serve equally well on alternative fingers to the wedding ring finger. Many men wear either a diamond band or alternatively, they wear a signet ring which can be engraved or set with a diamond.
Men’s Diamond Wedding Rings
1. A single diamond within a tension style setting. Here we see a single diamond set within a clear gap in 5 or 6mm wedding band. Typically this style of a ring would possess a small supporting under-bezel to bridge the ring, providing security for the setting, but giving the appearance of the tension style setting.
2. Flush set Princess cuts. A repeating pattern of Princess cuts flush set with precision and spaced along a flat court profile band. The square shape of the Princess cut diamond is a popular choice for men in one of many arrangements.
3. Flush set Baguette cut diamonds. Baguette cut diamonds flush set across the ring provide an altogether different look for a man’s wedding ring. The wider band styles of men’s designs allows longer styles of diamond to be set cross-ways rather than along the band.
4. Princess cuts flush set with a machined edge. Again we see Princess cut diamonds flush set, but with the additional detail of machined edges. This divides the central section, flush set with the Princess cut diamonds which sits at a slightly raised height to the machined polished edges. For further contrast, the central section is satin finished.
5. Lateral channel setting. This style of ring arranged the diamonds across the band, graduating in size and held within a channel setting. This provides a sleek, low profile setting for the stones within a wider band style popular for men.
6. Round diamond flush set within machined channel. Depth is an important consideration here since the wedding ring needs to be substantial enough to accommodate the depth of the diamond. Heavier profiles are more suitable, but the satin and polished finish contrast beautifully whilst the round diamond sits beautifully within a perfect man’s wedding band design.
7. Flush and grain set. A square effect can be achieved when round diamonds are grain set within a square flush setting.
8. Geometric lines with flush set diamond. Bold geometric lines can be added to a men’s wedding ring design, incorporating a flush set diamond. This can be achieved in any width and ring profile to suit personal tastes.
9. A trio of baguette cut diamonds, flush set. Arranged in a row of three, here we see baguette cut diamonds arranged end to end, flush set within the ring. Patterns of either three or four diamonds are popular in a range of different arrangements set according to personal preferences.
10. Lateral channel and grain set. Most widths of wedding band can be set with a subtle hint of diamond across the band. Here we have a channel, holding small round brilliant cut diamonds within grain settings across the width of the band.
11. Raised details with flush set diamond. By machining away sections of the ring, and polishing the remaining area, raised bands of metal can be incorporated in combination with any shape of diamond flush set within the ring design.
12. Quadrant pattern. The quadrant pattern is an arrangement of four diamonds. Here four round diamonds are held within squared settings, in a group of four, which provides a larger square of diamonds visible within a wider men’s style of a wedding band.
13. Mixed diamond shapes. Mixed diamond shapes can be incorporated to build variation and interest within a wedding band, further enhanced and contrasted by use of an exterior satin finish.
14. Repeating cross-ways lateral channels with round diamonds. The final style repeats a pattern of cross-ways oriented channels set with small round brilliant cut diamonds.
