Anyone have a tungsten wedding band? I’ve looked at some and they seem to come in black, shiney silver and then a grey in between.
Do you think they could look good on a female with a white gold engagement ring? I’ve not recieved an engagement ring yet but I was thinking of maybe getting a set with my Fiance in tungsten as our wedding bands.
I’m a working bee, meaning I work with my hands a lot, cooking and baking, making bread… I’m not going to be wearing my e-ring except when out and am not doing anything so I thought maybe the tungsten was a nice idea if it actually goes with the same colour as the white gold e-ring.
Anyone attempt this combo? Is titanium better?

If the metals for your e-ring and wedding band are different, the harder metal will rub and damage the softer metal (in this case, the e-ring). The only way to get around that is to have them welded together, and that would defeat the purpose of the sturdier wedding band for you.
You’ll have to wear your e-ring on your right hand if you go that route.

You may want to talk to a jeweler. I’m not sure that tungsten can be soldered/welded/fused to gold. Titanium might actually be better for that, but I don’t know. All I know for certain is that you can’t actually engrave tungsten, so I don’t think its a very workable metal.

Good point ladies! Wouldn’t want that to happen (scratching of e ring!)
I’ll think carefully then before suggesting it. Might be best to just get a white gold band.

@tiny tuna: I will have a white gold e-ring. But my bf and I won a free set of tungsten bands. We plan to wear those at work, and our pretty wedding bands at home, and special occasions.
He works in a mill, and I bake/type/paint and all sorts of things so it would be difficult to wear a beautiful e-ring all the time.

@LadySapphire: Wow!! I might just wear the e-ring alone on the left finger and the wedding band most of the time alone too. I’m a simple type of person that way so this could be a solution.
