Cigar band rings are traditionally simple in design but iconic in style. They make excellent wedding bands because they stack effortlessly with showstopping engagement rings and you can dress them down with the classic plain metal band or up with encrusted jewels, depending on your style. Additionally, if you don’t wish to wear your engagement ring on the regular, they make a great stand-in as an everyday ring.

What to Look for When Choosing a Cigar Band Ring
The design might not seem like something to pay attention to, since a cigar wedding band can be a simple band of metal. But, Popov says “in the somehow simple shape of a cigar band ring, a good designer can achieve extraordinary results.”
With cigar wedding bands available at a variety of prices, “budget should be the second consideration” when shopping for a ring, says Popov. Your budget is often a helpful starting point and will help you narrow down options.
What Is a Cigar Ring Band?
A cigar band is “a thin paper ring that distinguishes one cigar band from the other,” explains Popov. “In jewelry, the cigar band ring is a golden band that looks a bit like a cigar band on the finger.”
Can I Add Diamonds or Gemstones to My Cigar Band Wedding Ring?
When it comes to choosing a cigar band ring, you’re not limited to a plain band of metal (though they are just as stunning). According to Popov, you can “absolutely” add diamonds or gemstones to a cigar band wedding ring. “Just as different cigars have rings decorated with coats of arms, logos, colors, etc. there’s no limit for the cigar band wedding ring to be adorned with diamond and gemstones, provided it won’t lose the band look,” says Popov.
What Is the Average Spend for a Wedding Band?
The price of a cigar wedding band varies, depending on the type of metal, detailing, and if there are gemstones or diamonds involved. “Usually, there is a ring for any budget,” says Popov.
