    I helped FI pick his. I felt really overbearing when we were ring shopping for him but he was orignially looking at really slim rings and they looked so dainty on his giant monster hands, lol. I had to keep reminding myself that it was for him and he should choose. In the end, he did make the decision himself and he was really happy…so was I. And neither of us expected that he would go for bling! Haha, we thought he would go for a plain white gold band but NOPE.

    Yes, I like it. I went with him & gave my opinion when he asked me. But it’s pretty simple and it’s nice. 

    i dud make him get white gold instead of silver like he wanted, though. Because it lasts longer so it’s worth the extra cost (the only reason why he wanted silver in the first place was bc it’s cheaper).

    I like it, but he doesnt. He picked it out himself.  However, he is not in the least bit excited about it. He hates the idea of wearing one.

    Eh. It’s very him, but I’m not particularly fond of it.

    Meh. He’s been just as indecisive as I was and has changed his mind about 10 times.

    He finally decided on this, which I liked. Its very timeless I think, and nobody will mistake it as a regular ring (he wears a lot of rings.)

     

    But after months of saying that was the ring he wanted, he suddenly changed his mind and ordered this.

    Its titanium and mother of pearl. Its very pretty, but it doesnt look like a wedding ring to me. And its similar to other rings he wears, so I dont think anybody is going to know its a wedding band.

    I voted that we picked it out together, but really I just showed him a bunch of different styles and kind of helped give him a sense of the options. I love the one he picked out though! It’s dark gray domed titanium carbide. I personally would go with brushed if I were a man, and he went shiny, but nonetheless it looks seriously awesome.

    @MechEBee:  I love the ring my hubby picked out!  his has bling on it, and I’m glad he picked his own.  I wouldn’t have picked the one he loved.

    @MechEBee:  I loved both rings he chose to look at (one yellow gold, one tungsten). He was completely torn between the two so asked me to decide! I said that the tungsten would be more practical considering his work environment, so he ended up choosing that.

    I felt kind of bad at first, like I shouldn’t have said anything because he’s always wanted us to have matching wedding rings (mine’s yellow gold), but he’s said he’s happy with it anyway and that he wouldn’t have known which one to choose. Plus we both get awkward around salespeople and have a hard time saying no in general!

    I’m planning on buying him a gold wedding band on our first anniversary – that way he’ll have the ring he originally wanted, but have the best of two worlds. Much like how he has two watches – a work/every day one and a non-work/going out one.

    My husband picked a dark tungsten with a gold band in the middle. I would have never picked it but I makes him happy. Yay for him. Lol.

    FI let me pick mine so of course he gets to pick his!!! The ones he likes are all similar to mine (platinum, milgrain, etc) but even if he gets something that looks nothing like mine I’m sure it will be wonderful, whatever he wants!!! 🙂
