Wedding season will be here before you can say bridezilla. And although the man's main item of jewelry may fall lower on the list of to dos, his ring is one wedding decision you need to make wisely. (You never want to give him a reason to take it off, right?) The classic smooth band will never fail you, but something with some texture will set his apart from the others. Look through this roundup of seven of our favorite local options then head out to give them a try. Remember to take your groom along—because with this particular wedding selection, his opinion actually does matter.
