    He’s still deciding on a ring so I couldn’t vote, but we don’t care if they match or not. I have white gold, and he’s considering yellow gold. I would rather him love his ring than match mine!

    It doesn’t matter to us if they’re matching or not. Mine is yellow gold to match my engagement ring and his is tungsten. We just went with what looks good on us.

    He’s the one who wanted us to have matching bands, and I’m glad we did it. I like that my band matches his exactly. We have plain bands that are half white and half rose gold.

    Ours will match, but he really liked the one that matched mine. If he didn’t…I wouldn’t make him get it! He should like the one that he wears. 

    My mom bought my dad a wedding ring that he hated (she knew this) and he has never worn it! …I wouldn’t want my fiance to hate his ring like that.

    It mattered to us.  But it’s actually rather uncommon these days for the rings to match.  In the old days, both men and women tended to have plain yellow gold bands, so matching wasn’t an issue.  But if you’re looking for fancy rings with stones, it’s quite unlikely that you can find a style that works for both of you.  And it’s better to have each of you wear a ring that s/he is happy with than to obsess over them matching.

    That being said, here are our rings:

    I would love to see your matching white/rose bands!

    We are currently searching for the same thing!

    Our rings are entirely different metals and styles, but my FI was very insistent that we both have sapphires. I love that we will have the same gemstone.

    @danibelle:  Our rings are both platinum- that’s the only similarity! I think it would be pretty difficult for us to have chosen matching rings since I wanted mine to compliment my ERing

    Ours don’t maTch at all. Mine is a custom band made of blue topaz made to fit with my ering (white gold/blue topaz).

    His is a yellow gold band with a tribal-like design on it. 

    He picked what he liked, and I picked what i liked.

    It wasn’t critical that our rings matched, but I am happy that it is working out that way.  My preference is white gold, which I have (solitaire); and he prefers white metals as well, but wants tungsten carbide. 

    I talked him into having a very small diamond in it, because I like the idea that both of us will have a diamond.  He liked the look of it, so we are very close to having his picked out.

    I honestly don’t care, but he fell in love with the metal of my ring (platinum with a matte finish), so he wants the same thing for himself.
