I think it’s a great idea! If he uses his hands a lot for labor especially. 

I am always over thinking & paranoid so if you’re like me it will help put your mind to rest about his finger!

Sounds wonderful!!! My future husband will have two wedding bands. He’s having one specially made for him, and then one that’s a little plain.

I did the same thing. My husband has a really nice wedding band that I knew he would jusy destroy between work and tinkering with his car amd stuff. I got us both plain white gold bands to wear. And he hardly ever wears his fancy ring. And I usually only wear my plain band and my engagement ring. Sometimes only my band. But his is all scratched up and yellowed after a year. Lol. It totally needs polished. But im rambling. Youre idea is awesome..and im sure hell appreciate the thought!! =)

Definitely agree!!  Although my husband picked out his band – I  bought a duplicate band for him since he’s rough with his hands.  Right now it’s not affordable to get him a nicer second band, but I definitely would if I could.

I am also considering this as my fiance works in the oilfeild and could loose a finger if he were to have an accident. Better safe than sorry!

My husband has two bands identical except that one is a size larger for when his fingers swell.

future.mrs.koban:  I think I’m going to do the same thing! My fiance is a firefighter so we’ve looked into a rubber wedding band for work/everyday use. But I also want him to have a nice ring that will last forever that we use for the ceremony.

just google “rubber wedding band” and a few companies pop up.

Tungsten is a great idea! My husband is a truck driver, lots of manual labor involved with his job. He also refuses to go without a ring. You should have no problem sticking to your budget- his is brushed metal with polished metal edges and was only $99 through our jeweler.

future.mrs.koban:  FH works in Iron and has a TUngsten band for work, it can be easily shattered or clipped in an accident, but he also has a ceramic & rose gold one for the wedding and special occasions.  both were less than $50 each thru pristinejewelrs

future.mrs.koban:  My husband is getting a second wedding band.  His first one is a platinum one from Tiffany which he is not too keen on ruining.  So we are in search of an alternative metal one that will be more “durable” for times when he doesn’t want to wear the platinum one.  We were told the tungsten ones actually already have a fracture in them so that they will shatter, so that might be a really good option for you. 

I would recommend going to some stores and having him try them on and ask the safety of each if they would need to be cut off.  If it’s a name brand band, come home and try to find it online (might be cheaper?).  The prices ranged from 249-299 for the tungsten ones my SO liked.

I also am getting a plain band. So we will both have “2nd” bands.  I am a nurse and with gloves on and off and infection control….my solitaire and shared prong wedding band are just not good for my job – so i plan on getting a plain rose gold band to wear to work, and i will wear my platinum set at all other times.
