The Coolest Wedding Rings From Etsy

While most women don't get to choose their engagement ring (their lucky spouse-to-be gets the honor), the wedding-band selection is, thankfully, a collaborative effort. It's good news to fellas everywhere.

But, starting the wedding-band search can be tricky. From the straightforward, simple circles to the opulent, sparkly stuff, there's a lot out there — and it can be daunting. We'll tell you this much, though: When we think about the kinds of wedding bands we would want, we always lean towards bling with character, rings with stories behind them. And, that's why we keep tapping back into Etsy, where literally everything is handmade with love and absolute craftsmanship.

Ahead, we've rounded up the best wedding bands from the online treasure trove for your casual perusal with the beau. From rings you can customize with your birthstone to the bands that allow engravings of secret messages, here's the good stuff you'll keep forever. After all, the idea is to never take these rings off.
