I think you should wait until he has some time off so you can have him there to get the ring properly sized and find a style he likes. It sounds like he is under tons of pressure from work and maybe pushing this will only further stress him out and thus cause him to put it off more, boys *sigh*. I know lots of doctors/nurses here (although the rules maybe different there) who wear their rings on a chain. I am planning to get Fiance a chain with his ring as he is currently working with his hands and cannot wear a ring and his future career is much the same, EMT. So that could be something you can talk to the jeweler about.

I would wait until he has time off because they need his finger to measure for a ring.  Are his rings the comfort fit kind?  That’s why my husband has and it seems to be pretty comfortable for him.

I’d suggest trying on a “light” comfort fit.  Fiance is fairly ring-averse (just never wore any type of jewelry so he is skeptical) but even he thinks this is tolerable.  Because it’s “light” (vs. standard or heavy comfort fit), it’s lower profile meaning it doesn’t sit far off the hand.  It also is lighter in terms of weight/how it feels.  I think it makes the ring less cumbersome for someone not used to having something on their hand.

Here in Arizona we have a store called Coffin & Trout. The shape of their rings ( kind of square on the bottom) are designed be be incredibly comfortable. I think if we didn’t get my Fiance a comfortable ring he would never wear it:).

We got Fiance a ring from Titanium Knights on Etsy that’s awesome. Granted, he hasn’t worn it every day yet, but it’s lightweight, the price is right (he’s a contractor so chances are he’ll lose it a dozen times since he’ll have to take it off for work), and we got a 6mm width band so it’s not really thick and bulky. We’re really happy with it!

I second the titanium ring thing. My Fiance was completely not interested in wearing rings, but he has loved wearing his titanium ring. It weighs practically nothing and mostly he forgets that he even has it on. One thing though is that titanium can’t be resized, so you’ve gotta make sure he knows his correct ring size before ordering. 🙂

I would do a domed comfort fit ring–FI and I both find them to be very comfortable.

We got ours from eweddingbands.com–they are platinum, which is heavy, mine is 3mm, FI’s if 5mm (which is wide enough to look like a guys ring but narrow enough to be comfortable).

Others have mentioned titanium, which would be nice and light. Here’s a link to that, but they do other metals as well, and they do quarter sizes, so you can get it to fit your Fiance.

He could ask his coworkers what type of wedding band they wear. But otherwise, wait until he has some time off so he can find something he likes. Thin sounds like it’d be the way to go. I notice a LOT of my doctors have ultra thin wedding bands, probably for this reason. And they always seem to have them off on the day they do surgeries. That’s perfectly normal I think.
