THis is purely a vent, but does anyone else out there HATE their husband’s wedding ring?
My FI just got his in the mail. It’s black titanium and it is sort of an incomplete circle and I swear, it looks like a plastic ring that he bought from Hot Topic. God it’s fugly and it makes him look like he wants to be 15 again.
Sigh. I know, I know–it’s his ring, he’s the one wearing it and he loves it so all is good, but…sigh.

Eeek! FH wants a simple cobalt band, but there for a while he wanted us to have matching Celtic knot ones…ehhh. Glad that phase is over!

Ny husband wanted diamonds, or opals, or lots of stones in his ring. I did NOT like that look, but hey, it goes on his finger! He ended up designing his ring and it looks awesome! It does have a pear diamond and black diamonds, but it looks really manly and it matches my ring. 🙂

Haha, I can relate. FI chose a hammered tungsten band. It’s so thick and heavy, I think it looks like a lug nut.

I’m not a fan of the alternative metal bands, either – you nailed it – they remind me of a ring from Hot Topic, or something from a street vendor at Venice Beach or something! I love my Fi’s ring, though – he got a platinum band with my fingerprint patterned on it. So simple yet different :-).

i like my FI’s and actually he chose something I would have chosen for him (white gold, brushed finish). BUT whenever I see an older gentleman wearing a simple yellow gold band, I twinge a little with regret that he didn’t go with that.

I was concerned for a while that my DH’s band didn’t look like a wedding ring either. He chose seranite, which is a dark slate colored (nearly black) ceramic by Benchmark. It’s similar to tungsten, but much darker. He could have had the exact same style (which I do like) in the lighter metal and it would have been very wedding like. But now it doesn’t bother me at all, I know he loves it and the look is really growing on me.

We haven’t purchased fiance’s ring yet, but the few that he has looked at are so ugly! I try to be honest and nice at the same time, and I know it’s HIS ring so it doesn’t matter what I think, but yeah..I have a feeling I’m going to end up hating his…

thankfully my FI wants something simple in plain in titanium.. i like all the ones he has looked at so far.. he used to joke that he would wear his wedding band on his little finger but I gave him a look that said NO YOU WONT!
