@MichiganGirl24:  My sister got one for her DH and he loves it. I got DH tungsten. It’s supposed to be like the most durable ring you can get. He’s in construction so he needs something that won’t bend. I got his from for $16. He doesn’t know that lol:)

@MichiganGirl24:  I really wanted one for fi since he works in mechanics but he told me he wasn’t allowed to wear jewelry at work so he’d have to remove it for work any ways and we went with white gold. But I’m definitely a big fan of the stainless steel! I say you go for it!

My guy was really insistent on having a steel ring (“Steel is the most respectable of metals!”  ok honey…).  He also wanted something with a naturey / outdoor element.  I found this cool one made of Damascus steel, where they weave stainless steel and iron together while it’s molten and it come out with a subtle woodgrain pattern.  On Etsy for $250.

I saw go for it!!  DH’s ring is yellow gold (which is what he wanted of course) and it is CRAZY dinged up after just two months, so if your FI works with his hands a lot, something durable is the way to go.

My husband’s ring is stainless steel.


It washes beautifully, hasn’t scratched or otherwise had any damage. He gets oil & grease on it from his job occasionally, but a little soap & water and it’s great.

My ering is actually stainless. My FI is a machinist and he made it from a solid length and then engraved around the outside some meaningful characters. I love it! It’s durable and while it has some nicks they barely show and don’t bother me. I live on a farm so it gets pretty abused, I only take it off for sports where it could hurt me (not the other way around). It’s shiny and people are always surprised its stainless. I’d say go for it!

My husband made is ring out of a stainless steel nut. He’s an engineer and pretty handy so he gets his hands dirty and is around machines a lot. He wanted it to be tough and we wanted to be sure that he could take it off when he was around a machine or we were rock climbing without being too worried about losing it. It did start to rust a little bit (though the one he made me hasn’t, I don’t wear it all the time like he does) and his friend gun coated it (whatever that means….) so that it wouldn’t. We think it’s pretty fun.

Yep, my fiancé wanted a cheap ring and he didn’t care about what metal it was or anything. He is absolutely not a jewelry guy. We actually got his for a penny on a Black Friday Amazon deal last year hahaha. He is soooooo proud of that.
