@MrsBtoBe14:  My FI was really interested in Cobalt as an option for his ring, it is really sturdy and was considerably cheaper than gold. The only reason why he decided against it was sizing, since you cannot resize it. I ended up getting one for a band to wear to work, which was under $200 for a 2mm band.

@MrsBtoBe14:  We got DH tungsten. His ring was about $60 off of Ebay (I did tons of research on sellers) and he loves it! He works for the water bureau and works with his hands all the time, so it was important to have something really strong and durable.

@PacificMrs:  I second this! My FI works for the railroad and it was really important to have something durable.  Tungsten for us it was, but ceramic is also a great choice!

DH’s ring is also tungsten.  He works with a lot of heavy cleaning chemicals in a restaurant kitchen and needed something that held up.  Tungsten is nearly indestructible.

We got titanium. FI wanted something durable that wouldn’t scratch or shatter. We actually ordered from Spexton on Etsy and they were amazing!

My husband has tungsten. He’s a contractor so lots Of heavy duty labor. I’ve heard horror stories of them shattering but I can’t imagine that happening with how durable it feels. We got ours at Kay’s rather than online, about 200 dollars. I wasn’t comfortable ordering it in case it was a knock off or something.

It physically can’t get hot enough to be sized. We bought a warranty though so rather than sizing they just exchange it for one in the new size!

@MrsBtoBe14:  Tungsten will shatter if you hit it from exactly the right angle in the perfect spot. Chances of that happening are slim. It can’t be resized though. It needs to be recast in his size. Most places are willing to do this with a warranty or as an exchange if you order online. FI and I share a tungsten ring (I have half, he has half) and it’s still as beautiful as the say I got it. It doesn’t scratch or tarnish, super durable.
