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!
