    I was there when he chose it, but it was totally his choice. He’s the one who wears it every day, so his was the only opinion that actually mattered. He also chose his engagement ring for the same reason.

    oh wait his wedding band? I picked it because it was cheap and the one he wanted was from etsy (which I don’t trust) and expensive.

    The only thing I was dead set on was that I wanted the metals of our rings to match. White gold.

     I prefer when a husband and wife’s rings go together, or are even almost identical. I think it is sweet symbolism.

    Also, his ring from his previous marriage was yellow gold, and men’s wedding bands all kind of look the same, so I didn’t like the idea of him having an essentially identical wedding band to me.

    We have yet to purchase his band, but we pretty much know what we are getting. This type  of thing hopefully

    @Jw1724:  He saw an ad in one of my bridal magazines for men’s wedding rings and ripped it out because he liked that style. We went to a local jeweler and he made it for him. It looks like this:

    We picked it together…and it took us about 5 mins total…

    we discussed it before we went shopping..that he needs a plain 4 or 5mm yellow gold band..and thats what we got…

    DH is anti-jewelry (for himself) so at first he said he didn’t want to wear a wedding ring.

     

    When I explained that was not going to be an option, he changed his mind, LOL.

     

    Then he suggested he would wear his late father’s wedding ring because there was no point in me buying a new ring for him. (?!) I wasn’t crazy about the idea because I wanted to get him one that was just about “us.” Then when I saw his father’s wedding band, I understood why DH wasn’t crazy about wearing it either… it was freaking huge, I don’t know what the width was on it, but it must have been at least 10 mm because it was ginormous.

     

    He wore it for a few weeks and hated every minute of it. He was only doing it to make me happy. I finally talked him into picking out a more comfortable one and letting me get it. He got a simple gold band that is, I think, about 5mm wide. And it has that “comfort band” feature that makes it extra comfy on his finger. Nothing fancy, but it does the trick.

     

    So now he wears it all the time and we’re both happy. Haha!

    I had seen this website for meteorite rings (can’t remember if it was an ad on weddingbee or someone posted a link) and he is a sci fi junky so I thought he would like it.  I sent him the website and his favourite was the one I thought he would like the most.  We’ll see if he still likes it when the time comes to purchase or if he wants one of the more plan ones

    My husband wanted this one ring that didn’t look anything like a wedding band to me.  Since he already has a RHR that is eclectic and similar in style, I pushed him to keep looking for something that was more traditional and easily recognizable as a wedding ring.  Then he found a ring that he loved even more.  So it was ultimately his decision, but my opinion was a major factor in the decision making process.  We both love our rings, so I think it’s a win-win.
