Not at all. 

My husband’s wedding band is a $40 black tungsten carbide ring from Amazon – which is exactly what he wanted.  My wedding band is an 18k band with a little over 1/3 of a carat of round diamonds channel set around half of it.  Which is exactly what I wanted.

Not at all . I have never seen matching his and hers IRL

I would say from my impression on the bee, most of the women with diamonds in their wedding band here have husbands who don’t even have a single diamond in their wedding band, so it is very common.

I really like matching wedding bands myself but I think I’m in the minority these days. I even see couples around me where the husband has a classic yellow gold wedding band and the wife has platinum and diamonds, as her wedding band…no sense that they’re connected by looking at the rings at all.

Never heard of diamonds in a mans wedding band. Mine would never wear it as he is constantly working with his hands

I wouldn’t worry. Wedding rings in a set are hardly ever identical. If your rings are the same metal and similar styles then they match.

I love the idea of matching wedding bands but I doubt it will happen for us but we are looking at different metals. I’m hoping I might be able to convince him he wants a band of rose gold in his ring to make it go with my rose gold band that I like.

Nope.   Ours aren’t even the same metal, his is white gold with carved facets no diamonds, and mine is 14k yellow gold with three baguettes.   Mine is like, 2mm and his is 6mm.

DH and I don’t “match” but we do “match”… I have alternating black and white diamonds in a white gold band, DH has a black tungsten band.

I dont think its going to matter if they dont match perfectly, Im sure they will both be lovely! Ours couldnt be more different! He has a gold tungsten carbide band and I have a white gold .6ct 13 stone prong wedding band.
