My fiance is struggling with which wedding band to go with. Any thoughts? (Don’t mind his rugged hands 😛 He’s a tradesman!)
Here’s my ring for reference. They don’t necessarily have to match though!
Choice #1- More what he’s leaning towards (I like)
Choice #2- He just found this one (not my first choice BUT it’s his ring and he has to wear it so it’s completely up to him!)
Choice #3- MY first choice (again, not up to me though!)

I think #1 and #3 are too fussy for a man that works with his hands.

my FH works with his hands so he got a brushed tungsten for dailyw wear and a fancy band for the wedding and date night or special events etc. might be an option.

My husband is a coal miner so we chose tungsten carbide..if I had to choose between the 3 you posted id pick the 3rd one..the braided design is more classic..the first two are a little too ornate for my taste in mens rings.

I find them all a bit too fancy for a man. Maybe the second one, but it’s difficult to see it clearly.

I like the 2nd one the best.

Marlisle016: I do agree with the PP who said they might be too fussy for someone who works with his hands; I’d be concerned they’d end up really battered (that is if he plans to wear it at work; I know a lot of tradesmen don’t).
Otherwise, none of them are my personal taste, but that’s irrelevant: my answer would be to go with whatever he likes best. SO and I both picked our own rings as we’re both pretty fussy; we’re the same when it comes to Christmas and birthday gifts: to quote Friends, we ‘never deviate from the list’ lol

DH spent as much time agonising over his band as I did over mine. He wears a quite blingy band when he’s in the office, at home, or out with friends, and a stainless steel band for those times that he has to be on-site in the manufacturing plants.

I think men get the crappy end of things, so many jewellery stores dedicated to 80% women’s engagement rings, and one piddly case of boring men’s rings. Personally, I like number 3 the most. Plain can be boring for men too, I think it is silly to say something is too fancy for a man to wear, if he likes it, who gives a rats ass?
My FI struggled to find anything he liked in person, everything was either too plain or too outdated lookin (football/class ring style). We ended up custom making him a ring through a jeweller on etsy. It is a two tone with brushed rose gold and polished tungsten edges and a round diamond in the centre.
