How Did We Learn About Manly Bands?
Our blog post about the best silicone rings had already been getting a lot of interest from our audience. So I got to wondering what other unique options might be out there for wedding rings.
I first saw an ad from Manly Bands pop up in my Instagram feed a month or so ago. While I can’t recall which wedding rings I saw, I remember thinking that it was very unique without being too flashy.
I checked out their site and was blown away by the options they had for wedding rings (meteorite?!).
They do offer a few standard materials like gold. But you’re more likely to see tungsten, damascus steel, carbon fiber, koa wood, turquoise, or deer antler in their wedding rings.
I thought they’d be perfect for a groom-to-be who’s looking for something out of the ordinary to mark his marriage.
They truly have a wedding ring band size that will fit any wedding budget. Since many of them do not use precious metals like gold or platinum, you’ll see several options that are more affordable than a standard gold band. You can also spend quite a bit more if extremely rare materials are more your style.
I wanted to find out more about the Manly Bands brand and their wedding rings, so I did a Q&A with CEO/Founder Johnathan Ruggiero.
Read on to see what he had to say about making their rings part of your wedding planning process. My questions are in bold and Johnathan’s answers are in italics.

Q: What inspired you to start making rings with the materials and designs that you use?
A: When I was getting married, the choices I had for my own wedding ring were pretty boring. I remember only having a few different traditional styles to choose from. I saw how excited my future wife was when choosing her ring. There were so many different styles for her to choose from. I wanted that experience, and so did most of the guys I spoke to. So we were inspired to change that so guys could get just as excited about the wedding band they were going to wear.
Q: What kind of customers tend to gravitate towards a non-traditional wedding ring from Manly Bands?
A: I think that guys nowadays want something that not only signifies their commitment, but also matches their personality. They also don’t want to break the bank. That’s why we offer over 200 unique styles that guys can actually afford.
