You found the perfect girl and she said yes!

We know that it took a lot of work to get to where you are now. You learned all about diamonds, figured out her ring size, and consulted her mother and friends to find out what setting she might like. Not to mention, you did all of this without her having the slightest clue of your master plan.

It's finally time to relax and take a deep breath, because now comes the easy part: picking out a wedding band. If you chose the perfect ring for your fiancée, finding the perfect ring for yourself should be a piece of cake. After all, all you really need to do is find a ring that you like that is within your budget.

We know that at this point, you're probably tired of researching rings. So to make your wedding band hunt a little easier, we have made a list of the top 5 men's wedding band trends for 2015. Continue reading to see what styles are trending right now:

1) Plain Bands 5mm - 7mm

The plain wedding band has been the most popular style for men for many years. There is an elegance and timelessness in the simplicity of these rings. If you don't wear a lot of jewelry, having a ring that is subtle allows you to wear it every day without feeling flashy.

Although the design is simple, there are ways to personalize this look to your personality. For example, choosing a band with a brushed or hammered finish is a great way to put a unique twist on timeless classic.

The type of metal that you choose will ultimitely have the largest effect on the look of a plain band. So take some time to research which metal is the best fit for you!

2) Two-Tone Metal Bands

If you want to spice up the look of your wedding band, then a two tone band might be right for you. The contrasting colors are sure to draw people's attention, but the ring maintains a modest appearance.

Two tone wedding bands will most commonly feature white and yellow gold, but they are also made in almost every combination of precious metals. If you are interested in finding a ring that has a specific pairing of materials, we can work with you to find one or create a custom ring if none exist.

3) Patterned Bands

If you want a flashy wedding band, you might like a ring with a pattern design. As you can see in the diamond patterned ring above, these rings offer a modern look and are easy on the eyes.

There are countless designs out there, so your options are almost limitless. Find a pattern that means something to you, or one that you just like the look of. Either way, you are sure to stand out from the crowd.

4) Carbon Inlay Bands

In recent years, we have seen a trend in people looking for carbon wedding bands. This non-traditional material puts a modern twist on the classic two tone wedding band look. We find that the black inlay is a great fit for if you have a slightly more edgy style.

Most bands that include a carbon inlay are made out of tungsten carbide. We usually advise against buying a wedding band made from this material, because it isn't able to be sized or cut off of your finger in the case of an emergency. But recently, high end wedding band designers have started to include carbon inlays in rings made out of precious metals. These are a great way to get a modern edgy look while still getting all of the benefits of a gold or platinum ring.

5) Non-circular Bands

If you don't want a fancy design on your wedding band, perhaps you want a different shape than round? If that's the case then you're in luck! One of this year's hottest trends are non-circular wedding bands.

These bands can range from intricate wavy patterns to a more simple rounded square (like the one above). Having an obscure shape can mean that the wedding band's opening will be shaped differently than a normal circular ring. We recommend that if you are interested in these rings that you try it on in person before making a purchase, just to make sure the fit feels right.
