I don’t have that ring but I wear a lot of sterling silver jewelry. It does seem more likely to tarnish from sitting than when wearing it regularly. Even if it does tarnish, it’s super easy to clean up with silver polish. As far as dents and dings, I have a silver cuff bracelet that I’ve worn every day for the past 3 or 4 years – you can definitely notice signs of wear if you look at it close up – no dents, just lots of small scratches – you can’t really tell from further away and I don’t think it looks bad at all. Hope this helps a bit!

Is there any way that you could buy a different metal ring (white gold, for example) at a different store and send it to them to fingerprint? You can find white gold bands for MUCH less than $840. Not sure about this vendor’s policies, though.

I wore a sterling silver ring every day throughout highschool. By the time senior year rolled around it was misshaped, dented, scratched and tarnished. I don’t think I’d ever recommend it as a wedding band. For a silvery white metal I personally prefer platinum, but I know there are a lot of Bees that love white gold. I’ve also heard of Bees with pallidium success stories, which is less expensive than the former options.

@ms. rice crispy treat: if you are worried about the ring being scrathed and dented, then do what my husband did. He got a second ring made from tungstun that he wears to the gym and anytime he is working with his hands. The metal is EXTREMELLY scratch resistant and durable, and that way his actual wedding ring stays nice. It could be a good compromise to have the sterling silver that you wanted and not have to worry about it.

Tungsten is also a very affordable metal, so it was a no-brainer for us.

@ms. rice crispy treat: You can get Tungsten rings for $30-$50. My coworker has one because he lost his first band and his wife bought him a Tungsten ring as a replacement. Check out Overstock.com, I’m pretty sure they usually have them listed very inexpensively.

I think a “stand-in” ring for times the ring would get beat up might be a good compromise.  Amazon.com sells plain 6mm tungsten bands for $25 and 6mm plain titanium bands for $10.

My husband has a sterling wedding band.  I think I paid about $12 for it on Amazon. He is wearing it as a temporary band until we have our church wedding.  After nearly a year, it isn’t always shinyand has some dings and scratches.  But it shines up nicely when polished and the dings and scratches don’t bother me…I kind of like the patina it gives it.

There are some downsides to Tungsten. The inability to resize is one. They’re inexpensive enough to just purchase another if it no longer fits, but some are sentimental and want to wear their original ring. The other is it’s ability to shatter. If your hubby works with his hands a lot he likely takes his ring off to work anyway, but a blow at the wrong angle can shatter it.

All metal have their downsides though, it’s a matter of picking out what works best for your situation.

I’ve ordered the fingerprint rings from Fabuluster and they turned out amazing. Fiance got a sterling silver one, but I can’t tell you how it’s holding up because we’re not married yet. However when we were discussing the order I talked to one of my male co-workers who has a sterling silver ring. He has held up pretty well, has a few scratches but hasn’t tarnished and he’s been married for 5 years or so.
