The 12 Best Rings for Men to Buy Now

When you've got limited avenues through which to flex, accessories make all the difference.

Call me Frodo fucking Baggins because I, too, get a manic glint in my eye when I see a ring I really want, and will also go to absurd lengths to make it mine. A ring, and, ah, what it conventionally represents, can be a daunting commitment. If the only time you imagined yourself rocking any sort of finger bling at all is right after you got hitched, I feel you. It was only a few years ago that I got tired of wondering what my fingers would look like accented by the subtle glint of a few well-placed rings, and now my hands feel naked without 'em. (Frodo—you done goofed, my guy. If I was forced to give up even a single ring in my regular rotation I'd be out in The Shire trying to buy a replacement ASAP. Honestly, I'd probably hit up Legolas to see if he could proxy me some pricier Elven shit. Get it together, man.)

Up until fairly recently, rings have largely been relegated to the realm of dandyish accessories, for fittingly dandyish dudes, and most men have shied away from wearing 'em with any sort of regularity. Well, all that's about to change. Because the right accessories—and the right rings in particular—remain the easiest way to add some much-needed personality to any outfit, and when it's hot as all hell out and you've got limited avenues through which to flex, accessories make all the difference.


Contrary to LOTR lore, there is no one ring to rule them all. So in light of that revelation, I rounded up a few of the best options available now so you can get your Baggins on in style. And if you're going to sit here and tell me you don't want to summon some big hobbit (and Harry Styles) energy this summer—man, I got nothing left to say to you. You might as well be a Ringwraith.
