I’m not loving the combination, but the only opinion that counts is yours.

I like both rings but I think the wooden one is a little thick and might take away from your e-ring. Can you have a thinner version?

I wouldn’t like them with your e-ring. I like wood rings for men though.

Wood rings are very pretty, but they take a special kind of care to keep them looking nice. It needs to be removed before you shower, go swimming, wash dishes, apply hair gel or lotion (or anything along those lines), or be exposed to chemicals, you will need to apply a finish to it to keep the wood protected, and remember, just like wooden furniture, the ring CAN ding so you have to be careful not to bump it into stuff. Also they cannot be resized. You will have to replace the ring if you need a new size.

While I think wood rings are charming I personally wouldn’t pair it with your e-ring. Maybe wear them on separate hands?

I’d caution against a wooden ring for daily wear; as SunflowerGarden:  points out, there is a fair bit of extra care and attention needed to keeping wood looking nice, plus even the moisture from your body (even if you don’t sweat a lot, your body is always releasing moisture) will damage the wood over time.  Wooden rings can be great for occasional wear but as a daily wear item, you will be replacing them before you know it (unless it is petrified wood).  Even a polyeurethane cover coat will deteriorate more quickly than you think.

They can also be a haven for germs and bacteria, especially once they start to absorb water, so if your cooking style has your hands in food often, don’t get a wooden ring.

I don’t think it would look awesome with your engagement ring, but if you were planning on wearing it alone, that would be really pretty and cool! Also, if you were planning on that color of wood, it matches your skin tone and it might not stand out enough? I think a lighter color of wood would make a lovely contrast though!

It will not go with your e-ring. If you want something nice and classic what about a plain white gold ring? 🙂

Even if it doesn’t hold up and you need to replace it every few years… That could be a metaphor for how you and your partner vow to keep your love fresh And renew your marriage. Don’t let it stop you!

Charmaine7:  What about buying as et for you and FI to wear on trips and outings when you don’t want to wear you regular set?

Personally, I wouldn’t care if it matches your ering or not. We wear our rings for ourselves, not anybody else

It’s quite the contrast, but it may be beautiful.
