Wedding rings are an integral part of the wedding ceremony these days and they’re worn by both men and women. Brides always receive the items and it’s very rare for grooms not to get them.

So, if you’re tying the knot with your other half, you’ll no doubt need not only a female wedding band but also a male one to accompany it. By heading online, it’s now simple to source the perfect items. Regardless of your budget and preferences, you shouldn’t struggle to find exactly what you want.

A brief history lesson

However, men haven’t always donned wedding rings to mark their unions with their wives. According to a BBC News article, while the wearing of rings by brides has been traced back to ancient Egypt, it was only in the latter part of the last century that men started to do likewise.

Commenting on this, Rachel Church, a curator in metalwork at the Victoria and Albert Museum, said: “The mid-20th Century is when it becomes mainstream.”

With this ring I thee wed

Meanwhile, the article went on to note that the ceremony in the Church of England Book of Common Prayer from 1549 includes the words “with this ring I thee wed”, but it only involves the presentation of a ring by the man to the woman.

A bit odd

That said, it’s now highly unusual for grooms to forgo the act of receiving a ring. Commenting on this, Ms Church said: “Nowadays when you hear men don’t want to wear them you think that it’s a bit odd.”
