- Wedding: July 2012
I have to admit to being pretty jealous when Darling Husband got his tungsten wedding band in the mail. “You mean it doesn’t scratch?!? It’s invincible, shiny, AND cheap??” My own rings get banged up pretty quickly, and I’m always looking forward to having the scuff marks taken off by the jeweler every 6 months.
Since we do a lot of outdoorsy stuff that could damage my rings, and I don’t want to be freaking out about having a naked finger, I’ve been looking for a “stunt double” ring. We went backpacking for our honeymoon, and I wore a cheap CZ that I thought was really pretty in the store. But, I HATED it! Having a different ring that was kind of similar, felt for some reason like I was cheating on my ring! And then, I discovered that they make tungsten bands for women! I ordered one off amazon (only $17!) a couple days ago, and it arrived today! I love the simple look of the plain band. I’m so excited to wear it rock climbing and kayaking in the next couple weeks!
