@kels-anne91:  Maybe a nice man-necklace for him? With a ring on it? That way he won’t have anything on his hands and he can weld and then chain can be long so he can tuck it under his clothes?

I actually like the idea of the engagement watch. You can get your FI a watch for the wedding. What about earrings or a necklace for you?

What about a sterling silver cuff you each wear, and engrave your wedding date or something meaningful to you guys on it? Like a flat one….I usEd to swear two small cuffs all the time and wore to sleep sleep and all.  They are just a little too small Now…I swear all of man bones expanded after pregnancy, so I will give them to my son.

@kels-anne91:  If your hands are always in clay and paint, wouldn’t a bracelet get ruined as well?  What about a necklace for both of you?  You could have a dog tag for him with all of the info from your wedding and a nice pendant or locket for you.

I think that there are many options. My husband is currently in the market for a more unisex or masculine necklace (although his purpose is to put his band on it while he is at work). I really love the idea of an engagement watch – I’m planning to get my husband a nice, quality watch when he graduates with his master’s degree (one year!) and have the back of the face engraved. A good friend of mine gave his husband a wedding pocket watch (and engraved it). I have a charm bracelet now (although it only has a few charms), and i try to pick up charms from places I go with my partner or solo. I have a cannon from a Civil War site, two dogs, and a turtle (as well as a few others). I’m only concerned that a charm bracelet could easily get gunked up at work (although mine cleans up rather well)

@kels-anne91:  I like the cuff/bracelet idea. I also knew two people that got each other bicycles instead of rings! (Those were some nice bikes… also, they like bicycling, so it made sense.) Also, even if your hands are in paint, there are some very neat wedding bands you could rock, and he could get a necklace or a cuff/bracelet (or a necklace/cuff/bracelet like him).
