I swear my Fiance could care less what he has according to him the cheaper the better. He said he’s afraid he’s going to scratch his ring. I don’t think he needs a super expensive one but I’d like to see him get something decent. I don’t want to be replacing it all the time. We were told to look at palladium which is middle of the road.
He told me get him whatever I want. Anyone else have this problem? I swear the things I thought he’d care the most about he doesn’t and the things I wouldn’t have thought he has a big opinion on.

@missbumblebee: Yes, totally! I hate it.. he doesn’t like the idea of wearing a ring. He has never worn jewelry before. He finally settled on a titanium ring. It was the only one he felt semi-ok with. I would have prefered him to get white gold, to make it more special but he hated every one we tried on. We had more trouble finding his ring than both my dress and e-ring combined!

@missbumblebee: If he’s worried about scratching, look at tungsten. I’ve heard it is virtually scratch-resistant for everyday wear, and many of them have the look of white gold/palladium. I found this seller on etsy, they have some pretty unique rings, very affordable, and it says if they ever do scratch, you can send them back for free “polishing”. http://www.etsy.com/shop/customringdesigns?ref=seller_info. SO was sort of eh, but once we started looking at all these unique rings, he got a little more excited!

My Fiance wanted to get the cheapest ring possible. To be honest though, I doubt he will wear it much, so I didn’t really care what he got. We went shopping one day together for rings then he told me a few weeks later he had stopped to order one. The one he chose was fine, but he just didn’t think it was a big deal.
He is opinionated on other things though which I never thought he would be…like chairs. Seriously, I’ve never heard of a man caring about chairs. Sighhh.

@love108: His might be tungsten, actually. Not titanium

My husband doesn’t wear his ring a lot due to worrying about losing it on trips or scratching it. It bugged me at first but after 3 years, it’s not the end of the world.

@mrsginmay: If it’s super light, it’s titanium. If it’s got some heft to it, definitely tungsten 🙂

Darling Husband can’t wear his at work (he’s a contractor) so he always forgets to wear it on the weekends, when we go out, etc. He’s also really bad for losing things, so we bought him a $50 tungsten ring off Etsy which surprisingly he hasn’t lost yet! It doesn’t bother me much any more.

Mine was dead set against it because his dad never wore one (not a good enough excuse for me!!!) but we managed to find one he likes (tungsten with a small diamond in it) so with any luck he will wear it!
But I tell you it wasn’t a simple choice to pick it! We went to around 10 jewellers to find it and had countless conversations about it. In the end the only thing that worked was me telling him thr if he didn’t wear his I wouldn’t wear mine. That def changed his tune!!!

My husband could’ve cared less, he just wanted one. In the end I ended up stopping in at a local jewelry store and picking out a basic white gold ring. There are no embellishments, just a standard white gold ring. It was pretty inexpensive and he was so happy to get it. Maybe one day I’ll engrave it but I have a feeling he might think that’s a little too girly for him lol.

YES! That is exactly how my Darling Husband was. He just wanted something cheap, but I wanted something that would last, just like you! It took us forever, but we eventually found a compromise. Not too expensive, and substantial enough that it wouldn’t be tossed around like a bottle cap. We ended up going the custom route though to be able to satisfy both of our wants.

countrygirl62312 LOL I feel ya. Mine his biggest opinions were on the cake, not the flavor but the shape he was dead set against cupcakes and wanted a traditional wedding cake. Along with logistics he wants it completely planned and organized to a T and the honeymoon he loves the fact that he’s planning it and not telling me where we are going.
We’ll have to look at different types of rings, I guess. I’m dead set that he WILL wear the ring whatever it is, that much is important to me.

Uhhhh yep. He wants a $25 stainless steel ring, haha. As long as he wears it!

Mine asked for a plain ring, as cheap as we could get it. The price of the ring doesn’t add or detract from what it means. We ended up getting a tungsten ring for £12 (not sure what that is in dollars)
It looks just as nice as any other more expensive metal, but it’ll last longer. Just because a metal is more readily available – and therefore costs less – doesn’t make it unworthy.

@missbumblebee: I’ve heard titanium is the best when it comes to scratch-proof rings…that’s what we will probably end up getting for my SO…he works with fuel trucks and is CONSTANTLY working with his hands, so it definitely needs to last…the lady at the jewelry store is the one that recommended titanium…plus I’ve heard they’re not too pricey…
